Beautiful Castles and Stunning Landscapes
After Stirling Castle, we’ll break for a quick lunch (at your own expense) to fuel us onwards for the second part of our journey. We’ll head further north to the picturesque town of Dunkeld, which sits on the banks of the River Tay. Here we will learn about the Jacobites and their revolts and admire the brightly colored 'little houses' of Dunkeld built in the early 1700s.
Finally, depending on weather conditions and availability, we'll aim for either the Queen's View or South Queensferry on our way back towards Edinburgh. Both sites offer stunning views, so we'll prepare our cameras for this grand finale. From the Queen's View, Loch Tummel and the mountains of the west form an iconic picture of Scotland, and South Queensbury provides a glorious view of the three bridges over the Firth of Forth. After this stop, we'll head straight back to Edinburgh, dropping you back at your accommodation to bask in the memories of your day in the highlands.
Please note: The Queen's View is currently closed, so we'll make South Queensbury our last stop on the tour until it reopens.
Your guide and driver will meet you and drop you off at your accommodation.
