On the first day, meet in central Edinburgh to board your air-conditioned bus or coach and, after stopping in Glasgow to pick up the rest of your group, continue to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Stop at Luss Beach for views across Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond Mountain, and continue to Loch Tulla, for more photo opportunities. Continue north to Glen Coe, where you take in the scenery and learn more about the region’s history, including the 17th-century MacDonald Clan Massacre, from your guide. Next, stop in Fort William to see Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK, and enjoy lunch (own expense). In the afternoon, journey east to Loch Ness and your accommodation for the evening (depending on tour option selected). Begin the second day by exploring Loch Ness, where you can opt to cruise around the lake or tour the lakeside Urquhart Castle (both optional, own expense). Continue to the notorious Culloden Battlefield (entrance fees not included), and visit a traditional Scotch whisky distillery, where you can tour the distillery and sample a dram of whisky (own expense).

Entertaining and Educational Day Tour
Jul 2021 • Couples
This day tour is the best way to explore the beautiful and scenic highlands of Scotland and the Loch Ness all in one day. Our tour guide, Steven B, entertained us with background stories, music and history to understand the contexts of the places we were visiting and driving by. It was very entertaining and would definitely recommend.

Our first visit to Edinburgh
Dec 2019
Our first visit to Edinburgh was fantastic and the Highlands tour was amazing! We enjoyed the trip to Glasgow and the scenery at Loch Ness was superb. The most impressive view was at the Island of Skye and the spectacular Skye Bridge.

Awesome experience
Oct 2019 • Couples
This trip to the Highlands was absolutely amazing. Beautiful setting, great history and landmarks, delicious food, and wonderful overnight stay at the Inch. Steven B., our guide, couldn’t have done a better job. His stories along the way were captivating. I highly recommend this tour.

An excellent day!
Oct 2019
We went on a one-day-tour of the Highlands and it was great! The views were just breathtaking, it is an unbelievably beautiful place. Spectacular views, especially if you manage to sit at the front of the bus, as we did. Our driver Jason and especially our guide John were very professional. They made the tour both interesting and fun.The tour takes 12 hours, so it's a long day, but well worth it!

Topdeck tour to Loch Ness and the Scottish Highlands
Sep 2019 • Friends
This trip managed to exceed my already high expectations. Insightful, fun, and definitely one for the books. Seeing Loch Ness was stunning, and the Highlands were breathtaking! Glen Coe will forever be in my heart.
Our Tour Guide, Josh, created a comfortable and enjoyable atmosphere whilst providing us with some awesome knowledge about Scotland itself. The bus driver, Will was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed his input.
10/10 would recommend, and worth every pound!

Day tour of loch ness and highland
Jul 2019 • Couples
I went on this day trip tour today with my girlfriend and if I had to describe this day tour in one word would have to be outstanding!!! The tour but most important the tour guide/driver Steven B was brilliant, his knowledge about Scotland was incredible. The stops he made for pictures were breathe taking!!! I can truly say the tour guide made the whole true a real experience, I have been on many tours but can honestly say this is the best one I will probably ever go on. It was well with the money and also worth paying the £20 extra to go on the boat trip of the loch Ness and castle. If you go to Edinburgh this tour is a must.

Great tour - go with the flow
Jul 2019 • Family
The tour didn't follow the traditional itinieray published here. However, I got to see all the places on my bucket list - Culloden, Loch Lochmond, Uruquat, Firth of forth bridges, Loch Ness, a few waterfalls along the way and deer!!! Our guide Steven B was great. Good conversation and played great Scottish music.

Let-down
May 2019 • Family
Except the great accommodation at Loch Ness, this was an eminently forgettable trip.

1.Cold & unfriendly reception by staff at the start of trip
2.Bus was late beyond the start time of 8.30am
3.Driver cum guide was rude & unfriendly
4.Very little explanation of tour points
5.Broad Scots accent, fast talker & difficult to understand
6.Dropped back ahead of the 7pm timeline

Not at all worth the money we paid for it

Amazing way to Experience surreal Scotland..
Jun 2018 • Solo
Every part of the trip was carefully planned, I was able to see and experience so much of Scotland with no worries. Owen was our fantastic driver and tour guide. We loved the stories and history he told. The Scottish highlands are stunning, the spots we visited were well worth it. In two days we had a lot of things packed but the whole experience was just fantastic. My only suggestion would be to allow more time at Culloden Battlefield as I feel we did not have enough time to see the museum, eat lunch and visit the battlefield. If you are a whiskey lover, then Scotland is the place for you. The visit to Tomatin Distillery was fantastic. I would definitely use them again if we come back!
