Day One
Edinburgh Ė Fort William - Inverness


Departing from Edinburgh we make our way to Glasgow, Scotlandís largest City then enter the untamed and ancient landscape of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Weíll drive the entire length of Loch Lomond, making a stop in the picturesque village of Luss so you can enjoy a stroll along the "bonnie, bonnie banksĒ. Please note if there are no passengers joining in Glasgow the tour will route via Stirling. 
 
Marvel at the expanse of Rannoch Moor then hear the sad story of Glen Coe as we stop to view the sinister beauty and soak up the atmosphere of Scotlandís most famous glen. Itís a short drive to Fort William, nestling in the shadow of Ben Nevis, where weíll stop for lunch.  
 
After lunch enjoy a relaxing drive through the spectacular scenery of the Great Glen. Weíll make a stop in the attractive village of Fort Augustus so you can enjoy a stroll along the banks of Loch Ness. Later weíll drive the 24 mile shoreline of the loch, stopping at the romantic ruins of Urquhart Castle for photographs. We arrive in Inverness, our home for tonight, in the early evening.

Day Two
Inverness - Cairngorm National Park - Edinburgh


We start today with a visit to Culloden Moor*, to discover how Bonnie Prince Charlieís Jacobite army was routed by Government troops in the last battle ever fought on British Soil. Alternatively you can choose to explore the evocative Clava Cairns which are an extensive network of standing stones and burial cairns that date from the Bronze Age and are about 4,000 years old. 
 
Tomatin Malt Whisky Distillery* dates from 1897.

After a stop for lunch we continue our drive southwards past the ruins of historic Ruthven Barracks.
