Isle of Skye, Loch Ness & Glencoe The Skye High is a wee gem, ideal for travellers short on time who want to get the most out of their trip to Scotland. All the best stuff is packed in: Nessie hunting, ruined castles, stunning lochs and dramatic mountains. All this as you listen to tales of Celtic myths and legends before a couple of great nights in a Highland pub.

    Day 1: Edinburgh to Skye We leave Scotland's capital and head past the capital of Stirling, home to legends such as William Wallace (Braveheart) and Robert the Bruce and scene of many of Scotland's most famous and bloody battles in the Wars of Independence. Our route north takes us through dramatic Glencoe, the 'Weeping Glen' and site of the massacre of 1692. We continue north to the Great Glen, under the shadow of the UK's highest mountain, Ben Nevis and over the bridge from the mainland to the stunning Isle of Skye. Day 2: Isle of Skye to Loch Ness Today we explore the 'winged isle' or 'Isle of Mist' with its ruined castles, awesome scenery and home to the MacLeod and MacDonald Clans. Immersed in Celtic myths and Viking legends, we explore the windswept landscape and brooding Red and Black Cuillin Mountain ranges. There is also the chance for a hike through this stunning environment before we return to the mainland past the beautiful and majestic Eilean Donan Castle. Day 3: Loch Ness to Edinburgh We follow the entire length of Loch Ness, passing Urquhart castle, while searching for a glimpse of the legendary beast. Journeying on through Inverness, capital of the Highlands, we head for the sweeping and eerie Culloden Moor, sight of the defeat of Bonne Prince Charlie's Jacobite uprising. Heading south we take the time to stop for a taste of Scotland's most famous tipple at a Highland whisky distillery before making our way to Dunkeld with its mighty Cathedral and through Macbeth country. We cross the Forth Road Bridge on our return to Edinburgh.
