Full-Day Scenic Highlands Private Day Trip with a Local

The Scottish Highlands are part of a historic region of Scotland you should definitely visit while in Edinburgh. All the way to Dalwhinnie, the dramatic landscape of ancient rocks, deep valleys and sapphire blue lochs will enchant on a scenic private full-day day trip.
For 12-hours, you’ll see the best the Scottish Highlands have to offer as your local host recount fascinating tales. From the royal court of Linlithgow Palace to the battles of independence that took place at Stirling Castle. Get to know the tragic massacre of Clan MacDonald and hear about the life of Scotland’s famous son, Rob Roy.
Besides the fascinating yet turbulent history, you will get to enjoy the mesmerizing landscape of the Highlands and admire the nature that surrounds you. With many pit stops for breaks and photo-taking, you can truly capture the essence of the Highlands. See the indigenous hairy cows, wander through quaint towns unravaged by time and explore villages that offer a peek to how locals live.
