Loch Ness, Inverness, & Highlands 2-Day Tour from Edinburgh

1. Loch Ness, Inverness, & Highlands 2-Day Tour from Edinburgh

See the beauty of the famous Loch Ness and stay in Inverness, the capital of the Scottish Highlands, on this 2-day small group tour. Detailed Itinerary: Day 1: Depart Edinburgh and head north across the River Forth towards the Highlands. A short stop in Dunkeld is followed by a walk along the River Tay, or perhaps at the nearby Hermitage, before you head for the holiday town of Pitlochry for lunch. There will also be the option to visit the local whisky distillery. From here the tour now takes you past Blair Castle into the Cairngorm National Park, where you will spend some time taking in the majesty of this amazing area, deep within the ancient Caledonian Pine Forests of the Rothiemurchus Estate. You then continue north and arrive at your destination of Inverness, where you will be dropped off at your accommodation. The evening is free for you to explore the capital of the Highlands. Day 2: After a leisurely breakfast you will be picked up from your accommodation in Inverness and explore the surrounding countryside en route to Loch Ness. Here you have the chance to take a boat trip along the loch with great views of Urquhart Castle, or to stay on shore and visit the impressive ruins of the castle, overlooking the loch. You will spend your lunchtime on the southern shore of the loch in the charming village of Fort Augustus. The Caledonian Canal, which links the lochs of the Great Glen, dominates the town and makes a great place to relax and watch the boats sail by. You now continue south past Ben Nevis and Fort William to Glencoe. This haunting glen was the scene of a terrible massacre in 1692, where many of the Clan Macdonald were slaughtered. The return journey continues over the wild and remote Rannoch Moor and into the countryside around Stirling, before finally reaching our starting point of Edinburgh.

What people are saying about Dunkeld

We are so excited about the tour! :) It was so worth it and gave us a great first look into the Highlands! Charlie, our guide, always had the right facts and interesting stories ready. In addition, the whole thing was super musically accompanied. It was just lovely. We will definitely book a longer tour again, hopefully again with Charlie.

Great experience, everything went perfectly from start to finish despite the vagaries of the weather and the road. This circuit allows you to discover many things and a very special thank you to Jan our driver who knew how to transmit his passion for his country to us.

Stefan was a perfect tour guide. Knowledgeable, fun and used great music and music references to enhance the information. Lots of stopping for points of interest. Great views, great group of people and fantastic tour guide. I highly recommend Rabbie's
