What to expect
Day 1: Edinburgh to Isle of Skye Your tour begins with pickup from central Edinburgh by coach and a leisurely drive to the Isle of Skye, discovering Scottish Highlands sights along the way. The first stop is Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, where you explore lakeside villages. Continue north, to Glencoe, where you walk and admire the area’s rugged mountains, lakes, and waterfalls. Next, break for lunch (own expense) in Fort William, with views of Ben Nevis, UK’s highest mountain. Finally, travel to Isle of Skye, stopping at Eilean Donan Castle (interior visit at own expense). After crossing the bridge to the Isle of Skye, check into your accommodation (depending on type selected) and enjoy free time. Day 2: Isle of Skye After a hotel breakfast, embark on a full-day tour of Isle of Skye, covering all of its most popular landmarks and attractions. Journey along the coast, admire natural wonders such as Kilt Rock and the Old Man of Storr, and enjoy free time for shopping, sightseeing, and lunch (own expense) in the port town of Portree. In the afternoon, sample traditional Scotch whisky at a historic distillery. Return to your accommodation to enjoy the evening at your leisure. Day 3: Isle of Skye to Edinburgh After breakfast at your hotel, you head back to Edinburgh, taking a different route that winds through the wild landscapes of the Scottish Highlands to Loch Ness. Hear the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, or Nessie, and opt for a lake cruise (own expense). If you wish, visit the Loch Ness Visitor Center or Urquhart Castle (entrance fees not included). Next is Culloden Battlefield, the site of one of the region’s most important battles. If you choose to take a tour (own expense), you explore the battlefield and learn more about Scotland’s clans at the visitor center. Make a final stop in the rural town of Pitlochry, before heading to Edinburgh, where you are returned to the departure point.

Absolutely incredible!
I cannot recommend the tour enough for those who would like to explore the Highlands in all their glory.
A massive thank you to Steven, our wonderful guide, who was fantastic! Extremely accommodating and really went out of his way to show us far more than was expected. A brilliant tour and amazing sights. Thank you!

Very informative and a beautiful sightseeing trip.
May 2021
A good trip to get a great feel of Scotland. We had a lovely time with our tour guide Rory. He entertained us throughout the trip and was able to answer all of our questions. The only problem we had was that the itinerary was not followed at all, this was due to Covid regulations being in place. We were not able to enter the Eilean Donan Castle or go on the Jacobite Cruises which were both big highlights that our group was looking forward to. We were also unable to go into the visitor centre at the Culloden Battlefield. At the moment, these things need to be prebooked so do contact the tour provider for times and arrivals, so that you can book for those activities in advance and do the activity when the tour group arrives. As accommodation is currently in Inverness, there is also plenty of driving on the day you travel to Isle of Skye which can be exhausting. Rory did his best and took us to a few extra spots which had spectacular views.

Highly recommended.
This year we decided to do something different on our holiday. We switched the Spanish beaches for the beautiful Scottish landscape. We had mostly good weather and meet wonderful people. Booking the 3 day tour with Hearth of Scotland was the highlight of our trip. I would like to say thank you to Nick for his help and recommendations, and to Keith, our tour guide, who made our holiday unforgettable. We loved his stories and anecdotes. We will come back, and book again. Love from Manchester, Linda and Zoltán.

I took the trip with a friend in July 2019. I loved the experience! Our guide John made the trip interesting and filled it with stories. Sola, our driver, was also very helpful and knowledgeable in Scottish history. The weather played on our side so we were very fortunate. It's very important to take your waterproof jacket and walking boots to fully enjoy the trip. Recommended!

Outstanding!!
Fergie was the best tour guide we could have had - a true blue Scot who knows his stuff! The history and stories whilst traveling were unrivaled and the places we got to see were breathtaking.
The accommodation arranged for us was top-notch, the buses were comfortable and the itinerary was spot on.
Thanks so much Fergie! We didn’t want to leave Scotland at all

It was a great experience. We saw beautiful and historical places which were surreal. Our tour operator Nick was extremely helpful and interesting. He constantly gave us interesting bits of information throughout our journey, from right when we started from Edinburgh to the point where we ended our journey. Looking forward to traveling with them again.

Dec 2019 • Family
My family was traveling from India and we decided to book the 3 Day Highlands Tour and it was one of the best experiences we've ever had. Our tour guide Nick was amazing and extremely considerate. He knew almost everything and shared with us about the history and trivial information of the places we went to which made the whole experience all the better. I look forward to using Highlands Experience for further travel within Scotland.

Fabulous small group tour
Sep 2019
Our small bus set off and I had no idea that it was going to be so enchanting! Our guide Nick Price was full of gems on the geology of the gorgeous landscape as well as being able to give the history of the region. He made the trip special and memorable and I would love to use this tour company again. Well organized, great pace, and lovely B&B’s to stay overnight.
