Day 3

Private Full Day Highlands Tour

Setting out in the morning with an experienced local guide, you'll head northbound from Edinburgh on a drive that will whisk you past The Kelpies, towering horse-head figures that routinely draw nearly one million visitors annually. Carrying on, you'll pass through the idyllic town of Callendar en route to the foothills of the Highlands where you'll break to tour Deanston Distillery, an outfit specializing in single malt whisky. After meeting the team and touring the facilities, you'll next head out to become acquainted with another set of locals, the Highland Coo's (cows). Get up close with these gentle giants, feeding a few before driving to Balquidder, the resting place for renowned (or infamous, pending on who you speak to) local Rob Ray.

After a break for lunch (not included), drive through the magnificent West Highland Way, visiting Glencoe and the 3 Sisters mountain range before beginning the return trip back to Edinburgh. An incredible day of Highlands's discovery, this tour lasts approximately 10 hours.
