Monsters, Mountains and Massacres from Edinburgh
Through misted glens and the shadows of imposing mountains clients will experience the magic of the Scottish Highlands. Crossing the Forth Road Bridge the tour travels north towards the Perthshire Mountains, and after climbing up into the empty wilds of the Monadhliath Mountains, heads into Monarch of the glen country. At Loch Ness clients could enjoy a one hour cruise (optional extra) aboard the Royal Scot, one of the most sophisticated vessels on Loch Ness. Turning south the tour travels under the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. Afternoon refreshment is taken at the entrance of Glencoe, scene of the notorious massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Lastly the tour makes its way towards Stirling the back drop for the wars of independence.
