Venture Into the Scottish Highlands

As you go past Stirling Castle, your guide will tell you tales of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and the terrible battles that were fought here. Make use of a multilingual audio guide as well. See the beautiful Glencoe Valley in the Scottish Highlands and follow the filming routes of Skyfall and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Hear about the 1692 massacre of the Clan MacDonald and pass Fort William to reach Ben Nevis, the highest point in the British Isles at 4,409 feet.

Opt For a Lake Cruise & Stop For Lunch

On reaching the lovely town of Fort Augustus, on the south side of Loch Ness, you'll be treated to a picnic lunch. Spend an hour strolling along the Caledonian Canal's paths or upgrade your ticket to include a boat tour of Loch Ness. The magnificent Commando Monument, a Category A listed monument dedicated to the men of the original WWII British Commando Forces, may be found close to Spean Bridge and offers breathtaking views of the Nevis Range. The terrain in Cairngorms National Park is known as the 'Monarch of the Glen', and also something you'll learn about on your tour.
