Tours to Loch Ness from Edinburgh
Edinburgh to Loch Ness
Private Loch Ness Day Tours of Scotland depart at 08:00 hrs, but don’t worry as coffee is never far away !!
Our first stop on our Loch Ness Highlands tour is the incredible Doune Castle.
Outlander fans may recognise it as Castle Leoch !! Doune Castle is a unique Scottish Castle and, as a result, a great photo opportunity.
Loch Ness Trip
Our next stop is the highland village of Callander.
Our first view of the Scottish Highlands is on the horizon. Callander’s historic highland village is called the “Gateway to the Highlands” for a good reason.
After a comfort break and a wee bit of folklore and history, we cross the “Highland Line.”
The ‘Highland Line or Highland fault line’ is a series of mountains and lochs that separated Highland Clans from Lowland Scots for centuries.
The Scottish Clan system was the last of its kind in Europe, and you’ll hear many tales of famous Scottish warriors and folk heroes on your tour to Loch Ness from Edinburgh.
World-famous Glencoe awaits
Our tour of Scotland continues to the world-famous Glencoe. Scotlands most famous and infamous Glen is awe-inspiring and a must-see on any tour from Edinburgh to the Scottish Highlands.
Hear the tragic tale of the Massacre of Glencoe as you actually stand in Scotlands most famous glen.
A dark day in Scottish Clan history from 1692 that still casts a shadow over these lands.
Glencoe is famous for its beauty and infamous for its history, resulting in a memorable experience on your private tour of Scotland.
Loch Ness Day Tour from Edinburgh
In the afternoon, we reach the world-famous Loch Ness.
It’s time to explore the highland village of Fort Augustus, where you can join a great boat trip onto Loch Ness.
Boat trips of the Loch are fun and one of the many highlights of our Loch Ness day tours. The cruise lasts around 45 minutes and can be booked on the day by your private guide.
Alternatively, highland shops, pubs and lunch options line the canal and are great to explore.
The famous Caledonian Canal is fantastic for a relaxing walk, and watching boats move through the 19th-century locks is a wonderful sight.
The Caledonian Canal Centre is located in the village and tells the incredible story of this mighty engineering undertaking from the early 1800s. As a result, it is a great visitor attraction offering info, snacks and coffee.
Boat trips on our Loch Ness Tour
Experience Loch Ness from the water and search for the Loch Ness Monster on the family-friendly boat trips that depart on the hour.
Loch Ness cruises are great fun and really informative too.
As she is affectionately known, Nessie was first spotted in Loch Ness in the 6th Century and is still spotted from time to time. Have your camera ready at all times 🙂
After returning from the Loch Ness boat Cruise, we depart Fort Augustus and continue on our Loch Ness day tour.
Cairngorm National Park
After leaving the famous Loch Ness behind, we travel into the boundaries of the Cairngorm National Park.
The largest of Scotlands two National Parks and home to the Cairngorm Plateau. Wild scenery, rare flora and fauna are all around as we travel across the wild moors.
Highland Perthshire, once a favoured holiday destination by Queen Victoria, is next as we continue south.
Passing from highland Scotland to lowland Scotland, we gradually travel back to the River Forth and the famous rail bridge.
19:00 Forth Rail Bridge
Opened in 1890 and now Unesco protected, the Forth Rail is an incredible engineering feat and, as such, a great photo opportunity.
Our return from our fantastic Loch Ness Day Tour from Edinburgh is sadly nearly over, and Scotland’s Capital city is in the distance.
19:45 We return to your preferred drop off point.
