Edinburgh, Loch Ness & Highlands 3 Day Rail Tour – Prices
|Adult -Standard Class: £405 per person||Adult – First Class: £469 per person|
Day 1: Join our train at Kings Cross Station and depart at 7am. The journey takes approximately 4 1/2 hours. On arrival, make your own way to your hotel and start exploring this exciting city. You have included a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour to make the most of your time in Edinburgh and entrance to Edinburgh Castle is also included.
Day 2: Today join our “Loch Ness Tour & The Highlands Tour”. Our journey
northwards takes us through Rob Roy MacGregor country and through haunting Glen Coe, the “Glen of Weeping”, where the MacDonald clan were massacred in cold blood by the Campbells for not forswearing the Jacobite cause. It is said that you can still hear their cries!
Next we travel to Fort William, which sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis. A real highlight is our drive through the Great Glen – watch out for the wonderful loch views along the way. The pretty village of Fort Augustus is our gateway to Scotland’s largest and most famous loch – we will tour the entire length of Loch Ness, stopping at Urquhart Castle for a photograph. Could that shadow be the monster?
We will make a further stop in Inverness, so that you can discover the Capital of the Highlands for yourself. Later we will start our journey southwards through the Spey Valley then on to the dramatic scenery of Glen Garry. We’ll make a stop in the delightful Victorian resort of Pitlochry before heading back to Edinburgh
Day 3: Enjoy last minute shopping, visit the attractions on your “must see” list or stroll through the city centre – it’s your day!!
