We travel northwest, passing Stirling Castle, on our way to Kilmahog. Here we stop for some refreshments and the chance to see some Highland cattle up close. We travel on through Rob Roy Country of Clans MacGregor and Campbell then over Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to Glencoe, Scotland’s most famous glen, site of the 1692 massacre of the Clan MacDonald, where we pause for a photo stop.
Continuing via Loch Linnhe, we stop in the Fort William area for lunch then continue into the natural beauty of the Great Glen as we pass beneath Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. We then admire the Caledonian Canal and the pretty village of Fort Augustus, enjoying views of Loch Ness, as we drive along the shoreline to Urquhart Castle.
Loch Ness is most famous for its sightings of “Nessie” the Loch Ness monster! Spend around 2 hours at Loch Ness, where you can choose to take a lovely cruise and explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle.
