Join us on the ultimate day tour of Scotland. Travelling around the Highlands we continuously cross the path of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites.
Passing Stirling Castle (the first of 5 castles we pass) we journey through the areas once dominated by Rob Roy and William Wallace, across the Rannoch Moor and into Glencoe for a photo stop and hear the haunting story of the infamous massacre in 1692.
Crossing Loch Leven at Ballachulish we have lunch at the Ben Nevis woollen mill near Fort William then follow the Caledonian Canal to Fort Augustus.
Here we have the chance to cruise Loch Ness for an hour on The Royal Scot, which has the largest sonar on the Loch. Non-sailors will have the chance to enjoy this tranquil little village on the banks of Loch Ness.
We then drive for an hour along the entire length of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle where the water is 800ft deep. Where possible, there will be a photo stop in this area. Through Inverness the capital of the highlands we head south driving past the Cairngorms and over Drumochter grabbing a quick but magnificent view of Blair Castle.
After a comfort stop in picturesque Pitlochry in the luscious Atholl Forrest we then cross the Forth Road Bridge viewing the superlative Forth Bridge before arriving home with a million memories.
There will be plenty of time to relax or even snooze on the coach as the guide will be playing a wide selection of music at the appropriate times. For the "wide awake club" this gives a chance to chat or contemplate this marvellous land.
