From Edinburgh, this tour takes us past Stirling, letting us catch views of the Castle and the Wallace Monument, then north into the Highlands. Passing the town of Callander and over Rannoch Moor we will come to the dark, brooding Pass of Glen Coe, where we will stop for photographs and to hear the haunting story of the Massacre of 1692. After crossing Loch Leven at Ballachulish we will stop for lunch in the Fort William area, then follow the course of the Caledonian Canal up the Great Glen to Fort Augustus on Loch Ness. We then drive northwards along the entire length of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart Castle where the water is 800ft deep. On through Drumnadrochit and Inverness, we will pass The Cairngorms and go over Drumochter Pass, alongside the Inverness and Perth Junction Railway which is the highest point on any main line railway in Britain at 452m above sea level. Descending through the Forest of Atholl, we will catch a quick view of the magnificent Blair Castle, home of the Dukes of Atholl for over 700 years, before making a stop in picturesque Pitlochry, a delightful Victorian resort town. We will then head south through the Kingdom of Fife, past Perth and over the Forth Road Bridge alongside the amazing Forth Bridge before arriving back in Edinburgh.
