It's time to start your adventure
The Adventurer is an overnight tour featuring some of the best that Scotland has to offer in just two days.
- We collect you from your hotel in Edinburgh and make the short journey to the quaint village of South Queensferry. From here, you get a great view of Scotland’s sixth UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Forth Railway Bridge. Dating from 1890, this is a Scottish engineering icon and a highly impressive structure.
- You then travel to the attractive small town of Dunkeld. You can visit the 16thC cathedral, spend time wandering along the banks of Scotland’s longest river, The Tay, or a bit of shopping at one of the towns arts, craft and jewellery shops.
- You then visit The Hermitage, a 17thC planned forest walk, and take in the dramatic view of the waterfalls and rapids of the River Braan.
- After lunch at Pitlochry, you travel into the Cairngorm National Park where you can visit our highest Scottish Whisky Distillery, Dalwhinnie. This is an interesting distillery where you can find out how our national drink is made and sample a dram paired with boutique chocolate on one of their guided tours. This can be substituted for a forest walk if you would rather.
- You continue your journey to the capital of the Highlands, Inverness, picturesquely situated on the banks of the River Ness. There is an impressive array of restaurants here to suit all tastes and budgets.
- We shall collect you from your accommodation in the morning and travel south down the Great Glen to world renowned Loch Ness.
Famous for its beauty and elusive monster Nessie, it is possible for you to take an hour-long boat trip here, or, if you would prefer, visit the ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle.
- Your next stop shall be at the Commando Memorial, an interesting piece of military history and an impressive sculpture. On a clear day, there are dramatic views from here to Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest mountain.
- You then stop at Fort William, our lunch stop. Enjoy some lunch in one of the pubs and cafes here, or perhaps you would prefer to visit the West Highland museum, where you will find a wide array of artefacts.
- You then visit Glencoe, surely a tour highlight, steeped in history with fresh highland air and stunning views.
- You then return to Edinburgh, stopping briefly at Killin to view the Falls of Dochart, dramatic river rapids, and maybe have a little refreshment. Passing by Doune Castle, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument on your way back to your accommodation in Edinburgh.
- If you are looking for a Two Day Scottish Tour, to explore the Highlands of Scotland and Loch Ness, The Adventurer is the tour for you. This itinerary, as with all our itineraries, can be modified to suit your own preferences and requirements.
