More Tour Information & FAQs
On day one, we travel from Lowland Scotland to Highland Scotland. A superb journey through the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. After a morning coffee, we continue to Glencoe.
Glencoe attracts visitors for its awe-inspiring scenery, walking, climbing and, of course history. As a result, great photo opportunities and incredible views are what makes Glencoe so memorable. However, hearing the Clan MacDonald’s tragic tale whilst standing in the Glen makes it an unforgettable experience.
In 1692, the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe suffers a terrible fate that still resonates with Scotland’s people to this day.
The Harry Potter Bridge
One of our main stops in the afternoon on our Inverness & Scottish Highlands Tour is the famous 19th-century Glenfinnan Viaduct. The incredible rail bridge spans the glen for over 1000 ft and is a classic piece of railway infrastructure.
Better known in modern times as the Harry Potter Bridge, the Glenfinnan Viaduct is instantly recognisable as the bridge upon which the Hogwarts Express travels.
The Glen has witnessed so much over the centuries. Bonnie Prince Charlie landed here in 1745 to rally the Highland Clans in what is to become the final Jacobite Rebellion. The Glenfinnan views and history make it an unforgettable stop on our Scottish Guided Tour.
Inverness Capital of the Highlands
In the early evening, we check into Inverness. The largest city and the cultural capital of the Scottish Highlands.
For the best Scotland tour and experience, Inverness is a must-see. Nestled on the River Ness, the small city has an excellent choice of restaurants, traditional pubs and shops. Situated on Scotland’s northeast coast where the River Ness meets the Moray Firth makes this wee city an outstanding overnight stop. The superb choice of Hotels, B&Bs, shops and local eateries means there is a great choice for all travellers in the Capital of the Highlands.
On the morning or our second day, we travel the short distance to Culloden Moor.
Culloden Moor Tour
The Battle of Culloden was the final battle of the Jacobite rising of 1745. On April 16th 1746, Charles Edward Stuart’s Jacobite army was decisively defeated by a British government force under William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, at Culloden Moor. Because of this, Culloden is an emotive and special place for both Scots and international visitors alike. Our 2 day Inverness & Highlands Tour means you have time to take it all in and experience Culloden Moor.
A short journey from Culloden is Clava Cairns. A hugely significant and exceptionally well preserved prehistoric site, Clava Cairns is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years. A well-preserved Bronze Age cemetery complex of passage graves, ring cairns, kerb cairns and standing stones in a beautiful setting.
Standing stones are not uncommon in Scotland but are always very special to touch, walk around and experience. The Outlander TV series has certainly added to their popularity. A hugely significant and exceptionally well preserved prehistoric site, Clava Cairns is a fantastic example of the distant history of Highland Scotland, dating back about 4,000 years.
The Hermitage Woodland Walk & Ossians Hall
Come face to face with the thunderous Black Linn Falls – best viewed from Ossian’s Hall.
Breathe in the earthy woodland and tang of pine needles as you wander along the banks of the River Braan.
Douglas firs tower over the paths leading to the roaring Black Linn Falls, where the Dukes of Athol has been planting “big trees” for hundreds of years.
Forth Rail Bridge
Our final stop is the Unesco protected and world-famous Scottish landmark of the Forth Rail Bridge on our return to Edinburgh.
An incredible engineering feat and still responsible for carrying all the rail traffic over the River Forth. South Queensferry is a historic location within Scotland. Queen Margaret’s ferry crossed this river as far back as the 11th century.
