Loch Ness & A Taste of the Highlands

Heading north from Edinburgh we pass the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle and drive through the Trossachs National Park, Rob Roy country. We cross the wilds of Rannoch Moor before stopping at dramatic Glencoe, scene of the infamous massacre in 1692. Our journey takes us through Fort William passing Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, before entering the Great Glen.

Arriving in Fort Augustus you are seated by the friendly staff at the award-winning restaurant at the Lovat Hotel and treated to our exclusive ‘Taste of Scotland’ lunch. After lunch you have the chance to ‘Nessie hunt’ on a short walk to the shoreline or just relax by the Caledonian Canal.

After lunch, it’s east along the banks of shimmering Loch Laggan and more stunning Highland scenery. The next step of our journey takes us over the Drumochter Pass through the Cairngorms National Park and onto Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains. We view the spectacular Forth Bridges before arriving back in Edinburgh around 8pm.

Exclusive 'Taste of Scotland' Lunch
Relish a 3 course lunch of Scotland’s finest fayre. You’ll try traditional Scotch broth, Lochaber smoked salmon, cured Great Glen venison and Isle of Mull cheddar; all perfectly washed down with a dram of Inverness-shire’s famous Dalwhinnie whisky.
It’s a lunch that’ll satisfy even the most monstrous of appetites.
NB: Please advise us at check in for your tour of any specific dietary requirements so we can advise the chef.
