Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands (1 day tour) - Edimbourg
Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands (1 day tour): This is your chance to see Nessie and follow a route through some of the most spectacular and haunting Highland scenery. Your tour passes through magnificent Glencoe, scene of the clan massacre of the MacDonalds by the Campbells in 1692, and on through Fort William, the beginning of the Great Glen and the Caledonian canal, which you follow up to Fort Augustus, nestling on the banks of Loch Ness. Here you can enjoy your lunch, a boat trip (optional, from Easter to December, subject to availability) or take a stroll along the lochside with spectacular views of the loch. From here you return south to Edinburgh via the country (depicted in the TV series Monarch of the Glen), stopping in Pitlochry on the way. Return to Waverley Bridge opposite Waverley Train Station.
Loch Ness is a large and deep lake in the Scottish Highlands. It is well known for sightings of the Loch Ness Monster. The waters of this lake offer very low visibility due to the presence of a high quantity of peat coming from the soil of the surrounding area; a phenomenon common to other lakes in Scotland. Loch Ness is the second largest lake in Scotland with an area of 56.4 square kilometres and is considerably deep (230 metres at its deepest point).
