Kilmahog – Glencoe Valley – Lake Ness – Fort Augustus – Commando Memorial – Pitlochry
Departure from Edinburgh to Kilmahog
We’ll leave Edinburgh for Loch Ness. Passing Stirling, from the bus we will see the impressive silhouette of Stirling Castle and the William Walace monument. We will cross Trossachs National Park and after crossing Callander, we will make a stop at the beginning of Lake Lomond and Trossach National Park: Kilmahog. Maybe you will be lucky enough to see some of the nice cows from the Highlands!
From Kilmahog to Glencoe Valley
Between landscapes of mountains, lakes and valleys, we will arrive at the Rannoch Paramo. We will stop at one of the most beautiful and magical valleys in Scotland: the Glencoe Valley. There occurred one of the bloodiest episodes between clans. We will be able to photograph the Three Sisters and recognize passages from films such as Harry Potter or James Bond.
From Glencoe to Fort Augustus
We will continue our excursion to Loch Ness and cross Fort William. The great mountains of Scotland and Ben Nevis will take us into the Great Glen. This geological fault divides the heart of the Highlands and is home to Lake Linhe, Lake Lochy, Lake Oich and Loch Ness. The Caledonian Channel and the Fort Augustus lock system will be our destination.
There will be a visit to the canal and anyone who wishes can take a cruise on Loch Ness. Don’t forget your camera, the landscape will give you the best panoramic views.
The entrance to the Loch Ness cruise is not included in the price of the trip. (Price for customers: 16€ adults; 15€ over 60 years old; 10€ children up to 16 years old).
The payment of the attractions can only be made in cash to take advantage of the group discount. As far as possible, the holder of the reservation is requested to pay to the guide the fair amounts for each member who conforms to the reservation.
On the southern shore of Lake Ness, perhaps its mysterious inhabitant will appear: Nessie, the monster of Lake Ness, the most famous in the world. During this stop there will be free time to eat, take a walk or relax on the shores of the lake. Another attraction of Fort Augustus is the Caledonian canal lock system. The country’s longest canal connects the North Sea with the Atlantic Ocean through the Great Valley.
From Fort Augustus to Commando Memorial
The way back from the excursion to Lake Ness leads us to Commando Memorial. This monument commemorates the courage of a group of soldiers who were fundamental in World War II. It is also an opportunity to appreciate (if the mist permits) the splendour of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the United Kingdom.
From Commando Memorial to Pitlochry
The tour continues through the Cairngorms National Park. Lake Lagann and Ardverikie Palace are some of the places we will pass by until we reach Pitlochry. This village of Victorian houses welcomes us to recharge our batteries in one of its pubs, before our return to Edinburgh.
From Pitlochry to Edinburgh
The way to Edinburgh will make us enjoy the change of landscape between Highlands and Lowlands. The 19th century railway bridge crosses the Forth Fjord and is another contribution from Scotland to the World Heritage List. Already in the city there will be time to offer some clues on what to visit in the Scottish capital.
Cheer up and embark on a cruise on Scotland’s best-known lake, home to the country’s most mythical monster. Finally, toast with a pint at a pub in Pitlochry, a Victorian-style village on the banks of the River Tay.
