West Highlands and Jacobite Experience Tour
Small Group Sightseeing Tours (Multi-days)
This tour starts from:
2 Days / 1 Night
Operated by: Highland Experience
Loch Ness, the Highlands and all aboard the Jacobite Steam Train
The Jacobite Tour will take you through a landscape rich in history, myth and legend - among the sites you'll see will be Culloden, last stand of the Jacobites against the British government forces. You'll be travelling through some of the best scenery in Scotland - from the dizzying heights of the Drumochter Pass to the stunning peaks of the Cairngorms national park. The first days ends at Drumnadrochit, a beautiful and welcoming village on the shores of Loch Ness.
Wilderness and Warriors...
Snap a photo of the Forth Railway Bridge, then take a woodland walk in the Highlands at Dunkeld. The tour continues throught 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 William, Gateway to the Highlands: so you'll sleep in the shadow of Ben Nevis and close to Loch Linnhe.
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.
