Loch Ness, Inverness & The Highlands (2 Day Tour)
Event location: Timberbush Tours. Ongoing event.
Take two leisurely days, travel in comfort in a small group and savour the delights of the Highlands with your guide: see rivers, lochs and mountains, and experience plenty of rich Highland history - with an overnight stay in the Highland capital of Inverness.
We leave Glasgow and head west, first stopping at the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the 'Bonny Bonny Banks' of Loch Lomond. We descend into the desolate expanse of Rannoch Moor, passing the Black Mount, to dramatic Glencoe, made famous by the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Enjoy a walk here before continuing north towards Fort William and Scotland's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
After lunch in the Fort William area, we trace the 24 mile shoreline of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle, then on to Inverness, capital of the Highlands, where we arrive early evening.
Enjoy a flexible itinerary today - you may choose to visit the fascinating Culloden Battlefield, where the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie were defeated by the Duke of Cumberland, and glimpse the ancient stones of the Neolithic Clava Clairns, before the opportunity for a visit and whisky tasting at Tomatin Distillery.
After a lunch stop in the ski resort area of Aviemore we move south for a visit to the old military garrison of Ruthven Barracks, built by General Wade. We start our return journey via The Hermitage, stopping for a gentle forest walk, before we cross the Forth Bridges, back to Edinburgh.
If continuing to Glasgow, your guide will take you to Edinburgh Waverley railway station for the 50-minute journey by train, courtesy of Timberbush.
