Day 1 - Edinburgh
Your train from London's King's Cross whizzes you north, along Britain's east coast to Edinburgh. Your visit to Edinburgh includes a 24-hour hop-on hop-off tour by open-top sightseeing bus. Frequent departures throughout the day mean you have total flexibility to plan your day in Edinburgh the way YOU choose!

Sights, attractions and landmarks of this lovely city include the Old Town, Edinburgh Castle and Scottish crown jewels (entry included), the Scott Monument, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where state ceremonies and official entertaining take place when the Queen is in Scotland, and the Scottish Parliament Building.

Day 2 - Loch Ness and Highlands
Your journey to the Highlands begins with a drive through Rob Roy MacGregor country, Rannoch Moor. Then it's on to Glen Coe, site of the 1692 battle of the MacDonalds and Campbells. Next you'll see Fort William, in the shadow of Ben Nevis, and take a memorable drive through the Great Glen. After a stop at the picturesque village of Fort Augustus, you'll head along the shores of Loch Ness for some monster spotting!

Day 3 - Edinburgh
Enjoy some last-minute shopping in Edinburgh, visit the attractions on your must-see list, stroll through the city center - it's your choice because it's your day!
