From Edinburgh we travel northwest, passing the imposing Stirling Castle, before making our first stop at Kilmahog. We travel on through Rob Roy Country of Clans MacGregor and Campbell then over the desolate landscape of RannochMoor and the Black Mount to Glencoe, one of Scotland’s most famous glens, site of the 1692 massacre of the Clan MacDonald.
Continuing via Loch Linnhe, we stop in the Fort William area for lunch then continue into the natural beauty of the Great Glen as we pass beneath Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Travelling on, we admire the Caledonian Canal and the pretty village of Fort Augustus, enjoying spectacular views of Loch Ness as we drive along the 24-mile shoreline to Urquhart Castle.
Loch Ness, 24 miles long and over 700 feet deep, is more famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster, affectionately known as “Nessie”. Spend approximately 2 hours at Loch Ness, where you can choose to take a wonderful Jacobite loch cruise and explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle and its modern visitor centre. At Inverness, Capital of the Highlands, we start our return for home, crossing the Grampian Mountains and the woodland scenery of Perthshire, including the Forest of Atholl, with an evening stop at the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry.
