Tour Description

Day 1

Wilderness and Warriors...

Snap a photo of the Forth Railway Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then take a riverside walk in the Highlands at Dunkeld. The tour continues through the breathtaking Drumochter Pass, skirts the stunning peaks of the Cairngorm National Park and visits Culloden*, last stand of the Jacobites against the government forces.  The first day ends in Fort Augustus, at the banks of Loch Ness.

Overnight: Fort Augustus

Day 2 

Take a Steam Train back in time...

A quick journey to board the Jacobite Steam Train, and then you're off. This is one of the world's great train journeys and will take you past Britain's highest mountain, deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly station. You may know it as the Hogwarts Express and you'll cross the viaduct featured in the Harry Potter films and pass the Glenfinnan Monument where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite rising.

Have Seafood for Lunch at Mallaig...

Lunch is at the west coast town of Mallaig, where you can taste the best of Scottish seafood.

Home via Glen Coe...

Turning south, you'll visit Glen Coe, where the MacDonalds were betrayed, then experience the beauty of Rannoch Moor and Stirlingshire as you head for home.

Tour Reviews

We loved our trip through the highlands and especially the Jacobite train ride. Our guide Sergio (forgive me if spelling is incorrect) was entertaining and knowledgeable. He made sure that we saw many beautiful vistas, historical sites. He took good care of all the guests in his care for the 2 days. Highly recommend this trip.

An absolutely fantastic trip, Brendan was a fantastic host, with genuine care about your experience. We had great weather and enjoyed every minute of the tour. The train was really fun and the landscapes were spectacular. Also our B&B had fantastic food! Thank you!

We came from Australia. We had Neil as our driver. We did the two day tour Jacobite Experience. What an absolutely fantastic tour and Neil's knowledge, sense of humour and ability to cater for all requirements was amazing. Thank you Highland Experience Tours and more importantly thank you Neil for showing us your back yard.
