So, you’d like to take a day trip from Edinburgh on a Scottish Highlands tour? As with our other tours, we specialise in showing you parts of Scotland that the big tour companies don’t take you to, and all within easy reach for an enjoyable day tour from Edinburgh.
The lower Highlands are within 2 hours drive of Edinburgh and are just as stunning as travelling to the very North, but don’t result in your spending the whole day cooped up in the mini bus! Our Scottish Highlands Tours let you get out and actually enjoy the sights, sounds and smells.
