If you only have one day to fit in as much of Scotland as you can – look no further!
The only Loch Ness day tour departing from Edinburgh to include a Whisky Distillery tour and tasting! This tour promises to show as much of Scotland as we can possibly squeeze in one day…
On the first part of your tour, you’ll spot mysterious shape-shifting Kelpies and the ancient stronghold of Stirling Castle before a trip to taste and learn about our water of life – whisky! You’ll continue to journey through rugged and isolated landscapes listening to your driver-guide sharing tales of Scotland’s gory and thrilling history. Travel through Scotland’s first designated national park (Loch Lomond and the Trossachs), view the desolation of Rannoch Moor, marvel and remember the bloody history of Glencoe – all before arriving at Fort Augustus situated on the southern banks of Loch Ness.
While you’re there perhaps you’re interested in hunting down the elusive Loch Ness Monster? Your guide will give you the opportunity to board an award-winning cruise boat, equipped with the latest technology to maximize your chances of spotting Nessie!
Your return journey will see you travel south back towards Edinburgh via Scotland’s second national park (Cairngorms) before a pit-stop at Queen Victoria’s favourite village Pitlochry, famous for its yummy whisky ice cream.
