Monster Tour of Scotland

Edinburgh, Fort William, Loch Ness, Ullapool, Gairloch, Inverewe Gardens, Falls of Shin, Inverness, Crieff, Black Watch Castle & Scone Palace

Wednesday 10 June

Departing home we will make our way to our hotel in Drymen for 2 nights, with coffee and lunch stops on route to break the journey.

 

Thursday 11 June

We travel to Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland to spend time at leisure exploring its many attractions.  Choose to visit the 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. (admissions at own cost).

 

Friday 12 June

This morning we travel 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 along 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 at Ullapool.

 

Saturday 13 June

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 must be seen to be believed and the attractions in this quaint village include the Ullapool museum and there are many boat trips offering tours around the surrounding waters.

 

Sunday 14 June

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.

 

Monday 15 June

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 continue to the popular destination of Inverness, where we spend some time at leisure exploring before completing our journey through the Cairngorms National Park to our home for the next 2 nights in Crieff.

 

Tuesday 16 June

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 Scone Palace, once the crowning place of the Kings of Scotland.

 

Wednesday 17 June

We depart this morning after breakfast, with breaks for coffee and lunch returning home late afternoon.
