Immerse yourself in local stories and the land's history throughout the journey. You can choose to enjoy a Loch Ness cruise, keep an eye out for the mysterious Nessie, or explore the shoreline on foot. Discover hidden vantage points and capture unforgettable family photos of the Loch and its wild surroundings. Allow your children to connect with nature, breathe in the fresh Highland air, and create cherished memories together. After pickup, enjoy views while passing by Stirling Castle and William Wallace Monument. Your first stop is to enjoy the scenery of Loch Lubnaig. Take photos and take a short walk along the lochside, then continue to Glen Orchy to admire expansive panoramic views over hills, glens, and rivers. Perhaps the most famous and scenic glen with a sorrowful past, Glencoe is a favorite spot for hillwalking and mountaineering. After Glencoe, arrive at the tour's main stop, Fort Augustus, a charming Scottish town on the shores of Loch Ness. Explore the impressive Caledonian Canal and the Benedictine Abbey. Delve into the Loch Ness Monster lore with Nessie-themed attractions and option boat tours on Loch Ness (cost not included). Find panoramic views of Loch Ness and its majestic mountains. Later, head to Falls of Pattack, a picturesque waterfall hiding in the trees, situated in the Scottish Highlands' Cairngorm National Park. A short hilly walk is possible, winding up the side of the river with spectacular viewing platforms over the falls. At the end of your trip, receive a final private transfer back to your pickup location.
