Leg 1 - Departing north out of Edinburgh , we stop at Erdradour Distillery for a complimentary tour, complete with free Whisky. Through Pitlochry, a highland village and the Ruthven Barracks, an imposing, early 18th century ruined fortress, deep in the Grampian Mountains. Later we stop at Culloden: this eerie battlefield, still virtually untouched, was the site of the Highlander's last stand. Next stop is Loch Ness for a little bit of Monster spotting before we pull into Inverness , the capital of the Highlands, for the night.
Leg 2 - First stop is Rogie Falls, for a forest walk to the waterfall where the salmon leap (in season). Then it's on to Loch Carron, by the Achnasheen road, in the remote mountains of Wester Ross, before stopping at the Kyle of Lochalsh, where you can jump off the bus to explore the magical Isle of Skye.
Leg 3 - From there we visit the picturesque Eilean Donan Castle, ( as seen in the film 'Highlander' ) and on to the next Jump-off point, Fort William , on the west coast.
Leg 4 - From Fort William we visit Glen Coe, one of the most dramatic and memorable landscapes in Europe. In the evening we reach Oban, the Victorian harbour town and gateway to the Isles.
