Pass Linlithgow Palace (birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots), the site of the Battle of Bannockburn, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. Continue through Crianlarich and Tyndrum, where the ambush of Robert the Bruce took place.
The remote wildness of Rannoch Moor spills out before you as you travel north, reaching the most dramatic of all Highland glens - Glencoe. Steeped in history and beauty, here you will hear the truth about the infamous massacre of clan MacDonald in 1692.
From Glencoe, journey through Fort William, site of the original Fort built as a military post during the Jacobite Rebellions in the 18th century. Continue up the Great Glen, a geological rift 65 miles long with 3 lochs - Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness - between Fort William and Inverness.
At Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness you will stop for lunch, then you can join the Royal Scot for an hour long cruise on the Loch. The boat has a sonar system on board, so if Nessie is around you will not miss her!
After lunch make a stop at Spean Bridge for a free whisky tasting at the Woollen Mill. You will be able to sample a blend, a single malt and a liqueur whisky so you can appreciate the differences in the famous dram.
From here, turn west across the National Nature Reserve of Craig Meagaidh, and along the shores of Loch Laggan where "Monarch of the Glen" is filmed. Arriving at Dalwhinnie, pass by Scotland's highest distillery. Continuing over the Drummochter Summit, where herds of red deer are often seen, and into the Victorian town of Pitlochry for the final stop for the day.
Continue south through Shakespeare's "Macbeth" country, pass Loch Leven, where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned, and continue over the Forth Road Bridge to Edinburgh.
