Stop for lunch at Fort William via Loch Linhe, where you can absorb unobstructed views of Ben Nevis, one of Scotland’s highest mountains. Your next stop is Loch Ness, home of the legendary Loch Ness Monster, where you can enjoy free time for exploring. Opt to take a boat ride to the ruins of Urquhart Castle (own expense). Return to Edinburgh via Inverness and the Grampian Mountains for drop-off at your original departure point.
