A Monster Tour of Scotland

Our super Scottish itinerary provides your groups with the ultimate Scottish experience - from Edinburgh to Loch Ness, the Highlands and the Cairngorms.

Our Destination Expert, Rob says…
”Our Monster Tour offers your passengers the very best that the Scottish mainland has to offer – from the banks of Loch Lomond to the rugged scenery of the west coast and finishing in my homeland of Perthshire. We get to see Loch Ness, Inverness and the Cairngorms too!"
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at the famous Winnock Hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Edinburgh
We travel to the capital city of Scotland today to spend time at leisure exploring its many attractions, including magnificent Edinburgh Castle perched atop an extinct volcano, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, a favourite residence of the monarchy, the Scotch Whisky Experience on the Royal Mile close to the castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia moored in Leith Docks.

Day 3 Loch Lomond, Fort William & Loch Ness
This morning we set off north via Loch Lomond to Fort William, in the shadow of magnificent Ben Nevis. We spend time in this famous town before continuing on our highland adventure, heading to the mystical shores of Loch Ness, home of the fabled monster 'Nessie'. We stop at the Loch Ness Centre near Urquhart Castle for a comfort break and photos before continuing our journey northwards through spectacular scenery to our highland home for the next 3 nights, Ullapool.

Day 4 Ullapool Driver's Day Off
We enjoy a day at leisure in the picturesque fishing town of Ullapool, gateway to the Northern Highlands, nestled on the shores of Loch Broom. The natural beauty of this area has to be seen to be believed and the attractions in this quaint village include the Ullapool museum or one of the many boat trips offering tours around the surrounding waters (individual bookings in advance advised).

Day 5 West Highlands & Inverewe Gardens
This morning we set off for a scenic tour of the west coast. Heading west from Garve we travel via Loch Maree to Gairloch for a comfort stop at the harbour of this little fishing village, continuing north to the award-winning botanical Inverewe Gardens full of amazing flora not normally seen in the UK. Finally we follow the route of the famous North Coast 500 along the coast back to Ullapool, marvelling at the rugged landscape which changes dramatically from turn to turn.

Day 6 Falls of Shin & Inverness
Today, we depart Ullapool and head south again making our first stop at the wonderful Falls of Shin and Visitor Centre, one of the best known sights in the area. Although not particularly high the falls have great power and salmon can often be seen attempting to leap them in the summer. We then move south to the popular destination of Inverness, where we spend some time at leisure exploring before continuing our journey through the Cairngorms National Park to our home for the next 2 nights in Crieff.

Day 7 Scone Palace & Blackwatch Museum
We enjoy our final day in splendid Perthshire with a morning visit to the Black Watch Castle & Museum in Perth. Located on one of Perth’s most beautiful parks, the North Inch, the museum castle dates back to the 1600s and tells the story of Scotland's elite military regiment. We have free time for lunch here or in Perth city, before enjoying a guided tour at magnificent Scone Palace, once the crowning place of the kings of Scotland.

Day 8 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
