There’s no better way to spend your weekend, or even a mid-week break, than to
experience the Scottish Highlands! Your experienced driver-guide will enthral you with tales of Scotland, all while you experience the relaxing getaway you’ve been craving. We’ll take you to iconic, historic and beautiful locations where you can gaze in wonder at the landscapes, architecture and culture that put Scotland on the map.

You’ll go monster-spotting on Loch Ness, visit quaint towns and be surrounded by ancient giant mountains – there’s even a stop to suit royalty and golf fanatics alike in St Andrews! You may even spot a magical flying car containing a certain boy-wizard at Glenfinnan viaduct… *

At the end of Day 1, you spend an evening in the capital of the Highlands, Inverness – a vibrant small city packed with outstanding Scottish food and drink, accompanied with traditional live music and dancing. A great way to really feel part of the action!

*You probably won’t see a magical flying car, but it’s fun to look just in case!
