Join us on the ultimate day tour of Scotland. Travelling around the
Highlands we continuously cross the path of Bonnie Prince Charlie and the
Passing Stirling Castle (the first of 5 castles we pass) we journey through
the areas once dominated by Rob Roy and William Wallace, across the Rannoch
Moor and into Glencoe for a photo stop and hear the haunting story of the
infamous massacre in 1692.
Crossing Loch Leven at Ballachulish we have lunch at the Ben Nevis woollen
mill near Fort William then follow the Caledonian Canal to Fort Augustus.
Here we have the chance to cruise Loch Ness for an hour on The Royal Scot,
which has the largest sonar on the Loch. Non-sailors will have the chance to
enjoy this tranquil little village on the banks of Loch Ness.
We then drive for an hour along the entire length of Loch Ness, passing
Urquhart Castle where the water is 800ft deep. Where possible, there will be
a photo stop in this area. Through Inverness the capital of the highlands we
head south driving past the Cairngorms and over Drumochter grabbing a quick
but magnificent view of Blair Castle.
After a comfort stop in picturesque Pitlochry in the luscious Atholl Forrest
we then cross the Forth Road Bridge viewing the superlative Forth Bridge
before arriving home with a million memories.
There will be plenty of time to relax or even snooze on the coach as the
guide will be playing a wide selection of music at the appropriate times.
For the "wide awake club" this gives a chance to chat or contemplate this
