You'll depart Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh or largest city, Glasgow and begin the journey north. Our route to Skye takes you via Loch Lomond via the Trossachs National Park. We'll stop in a picturesque village, where you can relax over a cup of coffee or explore at your leisure. You’ll get stunning views of the UK’s largest expanse of freshwater, Loch Lomond. Your driver-guide will tell you the history and theories behind the "The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond" song as you enjoy the stunning scenery of this area.
As you continue further north into the Scottish Highlands you'll watch in awe as the landscape becomes more and more dramatic. Glen Coe is one of the most incredible places in Scotland. Learn the brutal story of the MacDonald Clan massacre and take in the weeping waterfalls that inhabit this incredible glen.
As we near the coast, we pass Eilean Donan Castle*. Here you have the chance to take photographs and see the castle that featured in the film Highlander. It's stunning location, perched on its own little island overlooking the Isle of Skye, means it's hard to get a bad shot of this castle. It's often chosen as the feature for many shortbread tins and Scottish calendars. After a day of exploring it's now time to cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye, our final resting stop of the day.
My fiance and I are beyond grateful that Daniel was our guide for this trip. This is the best tour we have had the pleasure of joining this far and we are so glad we booked it. The scenery and castles etc were mind-blowingly beautiful of course but Daniel really made all of it come alive! He was a walking encyclopedia of Scottish history and shared everything he knew with us, taking us to all the secret spots, making sure we were all okay, and tailoring our trip to our group. Everyone on the tour was also great, thanks for a vacation of a lifetime!

Graham was my tour guide and he was absolutely phenomenal! He gave great reviews for the towns we were staying in and he took us to all of the best spots in the Highlands. He gave us plenty of time to explore and he gave loads of great facts about all of the places we traveled to/through.

Today I am back in Edinburgh after my three-day tour. Thank you John McCulloch for a fantastic tour. If anyone's thinking of going to the Highlands, get John McC as your guide. He's knowledgeable, an excellent driver (a good thing!), And is expert at managing a disparate bunch of people and personalities melding them into a cohesive unit for the duration. John has a knack of letting his group know about timekeeping in a lovely way that still ensures a leisurely pace while keeping to schedule so we all get the benefit of every stopoff. John has patience and a good sense of humour as well, which goes a long way! Amazingly he managed to get beautiful fine weather till Pitlochry! (Try the whiskey ice-cream while you're there.) We managed to fit in a little extra as well, seeing the standing stones that feature in TV'S Outlander series. A great trip, with wonderful highlights all along the way. Good accommodation as well. Congratulations John, on a trip well done. Recommended highly.
