An amazing trip to Loch Ness and the chance to go Monster hunting! Heading north from Edinburgh we pass the imposing ramparts of Stirling Castle, skirt the Trossachs (Rob Roy country) before crossing the wilds of Rannoch Moor and onto dramatic Glencoe. Our tour takes us past Fort William and Britain's highest mountain, the mighty Ben Nevis before following the Great Glen and stopping in the village of Fort Augustus by the shores of the mysterious Loch Ness. You have the option* to take a boat trip on Loch Ness, explore or simply relax in a gorgeous wee Highland village. Enjoy our free locally produced picnic lunch.
Our return journey passes through 'Monarch of the Glen' country, south to Perthshire and the historic town of Dunkeld. We then view the spectacular Forth Bridges before arriving back in the Capital around 8pm.
A cruise on the mysterious and beautiful Loch Ness is an unforgettable experience, offering the chance to catch a glimpse of Nessie. The Royal Scot is a locally owned custom built boat, designed specifically for sailing on Loch Ness. It's equipped with the very latest hi-tech colour sonar and Olex 3D underwater imaging system, giving you a fascinating view of the terrain and life underwater. You can relax with a coffee or beer in the on-board bar. Cruise duration is approximately 1 hour. You can purchase your cruise ticket from your guide on the day.
