Tour Description

Day 1

Wilderness and Warriors...

Snap a photo of the Forth Railway Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Then take a riverside walk in the Highlands at Dunkeld. The tour continues through the breathtaking Drumochter Pass, skirts the stunning peaks of the Cairngorm National Park and visits Culloden*, last stand of the Jacobites against the government forces.  The first day ends in Fort Augustus, at the banks of Loch Ness.

Overnight: Fort Augustus

Day 2 

Take a Steam Train back in time...

A quick journey to board the Jacobite Steam Train, and then you're off. This is one of the world's great train journeys and will take you past Britain's highest mountain, deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly station. You'll cross the viaduct featured in the Harry Potter films and pass the Glenfinnan Monument where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite rising.

Have Seafood for Lunch at Mallaig...

Lunch is at the west coast town of Mallaig, where you can taste the best of Scottish seafood.

Home via Glen Coe...

Turning south, you'll visit Glen Coe, where the MacDonalds were betrayed, then experience the beauty of Rannoch Moor and Stirlingshire as you head for home.

Tour Reviews

 

We had a wonderful time on this tour! I wish we could have booked a longer one but we only had time for the overnight. I would highly recommend it! 
(Kimberly Abeln - July 2016)


This trip was chosen to take in the famous Jacobite steam train from Fort William to Mallaig and to see as much of the Scottish highlands as was possible in 2 days. Our driver/guide John Paul made this a pure pleasure with his local knowledge, Scottish history and great driving skills. The tour was planned perfectly and we did everything that we expected to do and more. 
A big thank you to John Paul and Highland Experience Tours.

Saw many highlights, historical sites, beautiful scenery. Some easy hikes took us to hidden waterfalls and historic buildings.
( Marierta - October 2015)


This tour was absolutely wonderful I wanted to visit the Highlands and this tour provided everything I wanted to see and more. The tour guide was knowledgable and so kind. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone, it is worth the cost!
