Your tour passes through the remote beauty of Rannoch Moor and magnificent Glencoe, scene of the clan massacre of the MacDonalds by the Campbells in 1692. Then through Fort William to the beginning of the “Great Glen” and the Caledonian Canal, which you follow up to Fort Augustus, nestling on the banks of Loch Ness. Here you can enjoy your lunch, before travelling the full length of Loch Ness to Inverness.

Along the way you will have the opportunity to take a 5 star Jacobite boat cruise on Scotland’s most famous loch, giving you a chance to search for the legendary monster, popularly known as “Nessie” and enjoy the views to the ancient stronghold of Urquhart Castle. From here you return south to Glasgow via “Monarch of the Glen” country, the Cairngorms National Park, Highland Perthshire and passing Stirling Castle on the way.
