Take a luxury coach with air conditioning and a maximum of 57 seats from Edinburgh. As you pass Stirling Castle, your guide will tell you stories about William Wallace and Robert the Bruce as well as the bloody battles that took place on these lands.

First, get to the town of Callander, which is at the foot of the Trossachs. Drive next through the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond. You'll learn about the notorious Highlander Rob Roy MacGregor from your Scottish tour guide. As you travel to Glencoe, a stunning Highland valley, follow in James Bond's (Skyfall) and Harry Potter's (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) footsteps. Hear the chilling account of the 1692 massacre at Clan MacDonald. Travel through Fort William, the location of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles at 4,409 feet.

Arrive in Fort Augustus, a charming village on the south bank of Loch Ness, where you can have lunch in one of the many cafes, shops, or restaurants. Enjoy a one-hour boat cruise to Loch Ness after strolling along the Caledonian Canal's banks. Make an effort to spot "Nessie," the fabled Loch Ness Monster.

Appreciate the noteworthy Commando Commemoration at Spean Extension with perspectives on the Nevis Reach. Enter the "Monarch of the Glen" region of the Cairngorms National Park. Drive along Loch Laggan before the streets move over the Grampian Mountains. Cross the Drumochter Pass, which connects the Central Highlands' northern and southern regions. Enjoy the grandeur of a mountain pass that was made by glacial activity during successive Ice Ages. Finally, make a brief stop in the charming Victorian town of Pitlochry before returning to the city center of Edinburgh around 8:30 p.m.

It was a long tour but with plenty of stopping (about every 2h on average). Scott was very energetic and had a lot of info to share. Great driver. Music playlist was great (please, share!). Phone chargers on the bus were not working. Glen Coe definitely worths a separate visit. Overall, it was great to get a glimpse of different parts of Scotland, including the Loch Ness.

This day trip absolutely fantastic! Our tour guide Scott was great, his stories were funny and informative and his music taste exquisite! It was a looong day spent in a bus, but the scenery behind the window was breathtaking. The stops we made were great and the views just gorgeous:) I also took the Loch Ness cruise, which was also fun! As a solo traveler 10/10 would recommend:)

It was excellent. John, our guide, was amazing when he talks you can feel the passion about Scotland, his pride to be Scottish. He entertained us all day long with stories, legends and facts about the highlands and Scotland in general. I loved the experience

This was the best trip of our 4 day stay in Edinburgh. Big shout out to Bryan Smith from The Hairy Coo. He was really funny and gave a really good commentary about Scottish history, which I liked. He made the trip very enjoyable, even getting the whole coach to sing. Big thank you from your London family including Moose, your wingman!!

Now every time I hear Bridge over troubled water I'll think of crossing the Forth bridge in Scotland. Because Brian knew what songs to play at the proper moments and is excellent at creating memories, his storytelling was exceptional. He has a way of rousing the crowd to make it an enthusiastic and enjoyable experience. Most notably he's a proud Scotsman and made me feel proud to be a MacDonald. It was evident that he is the right man for the job, enjoys himself and I highly recommend him as a tour guide. I hope he was appropriately tipped.

Such a fun trip! We got to see lots of different spots and got a lot of historical information via our guide, Scot(t?). He was full of dad jokes and Braveheart tidbits, and it was very fun. There's so much to see that you end up a bit rushed, but it's worth it for having such good guides.

A great way to see the highlands, entertaining stories about every point of interest on the way, well timed stops, breath taking scenery, discounted tickets for boat on Loch Ness, great recommendations where to eat and what to explore on stops. The mood on board was great, was a packed bus of happy people. My children are 8 & 9, they found it a long day, we all did but it was worth every minute.

Amazing tour! Our guide Ryan was very kind, funny and helpful! He told great stories and played some music on the bus. Made some stops at beautiful photo-spots, got to feed some hairy cows and visit some great places in the highlands. We even tried Whiskey ice cream. A perfect tour for a peek into Scotland’s amazing nature and excited culture!

I had the most amazing time on this trip. I would recommend it to everyone. The best thing is that I had a driver named Ryan, who had amazing knowledge and provided 12.5 hours of pure energy and entertainment. Things to keep in mind, you will need cash for the boat ride (for me it was £16.50 for an adult, I think it was £11 for a child). You have plenty of time in the coach to relax and listen to the history of Scotland. I would definitely recommend bringing snacks and a mini picnic in case you get hungry, but I assure you there are plenty of places to get food in Loch Ness. There were plenty of stops to go to the toilet as well and the driver was very accommodating. Thank you Ryan for an amazing trip to the Highlands.
