Shared Tour: Loch Ness & Inverness Highlands 2 Day Tour


Shared Tour: Loch Ness & Inverness Highlands 2 Day TourItinerary:Day 1: You will depart Edinburgh and head north across the River Forth towards the Highlands. A short stop in the holiday town of Pitlochry where there will 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 can have lunch and 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 either take a boat trip along the loch with great views of Urquhart Castle or stay on shore and visit the impressive ruins of the castle, overlooking the loch. You will continue passed Ben Nevis and Fort William stopping for lunch before arriving in Glencoe. This haunting glen was the scene of a terrible massacre in 1692, where many of the Clan Macdonald were slaughtered.
