Highlights
See Loch Ness, the Isle of Skye, Glencoe, and more highlights on a budget
Sample Scotch whisky at a Highland whisky distillery
Learn local legends and Highland history from your guide
Enjoy two night’s stay in shared dorm-style accommodation
What to expect
On the first day, make your way through 'Macbeth' country to Dunkeld with its medieval cathedral. After sampling Highland whisky at a distillery and learning how Scotch is made, travel to Inverness. Then follow the length of Loch Ness—look out for the Loch Ness Monster along the way—to Fort Augustus, where you bed down in your dorm-style shared accommodations. Day two brings you to the Isle of Skye, known as the “winged isle” or “Isle of Mist.” Admire windswept landscapes, rugged coastline, towering mountains, and ruined castles as your guide explains exactly their significance. On day three, say farewell to Loch Ness. Pass Ben Nevis, Glencoe, and Stirling, scene of many of Scotland’s bloodiest battles. Learn tales of local legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce as you return to Edinburgh.

One of the best trips I've ever been on
Mar 2020
This was such an incredible tour, covering the most beautiful places in Scotland. I went as a solo traveller, and immediately felt welcome and left with new friends.

Our tour guide was Rich (with help from Dan and Rich) and honestly I was laughing from start to finish!

If you do one thing, do this tour!

Isle of Skye OMG
Mar 2020
Absolutely fab, even though I'm Scottish I come from the south so finally got to see what all the tourists were talking about. The Isle of Skye is beyond words, absolutely breathtaking as is Glencoe. Our guide Rich brought everything alive through stories, folktales and snippets from history. A really well organised and informative trip that packs a lot in without you feeling like you're on a whirlwind. I was a little apprehensive about being on a coach for so long as I can sometimes get a little motion sick (as does my friend who I went with) but not once did we feel like that as there are so many stops along the way.

"Skye High": Best Tour + Best Guides + Scottish Highlands = BEST TIME EVER
Mar 2020
Amazing tour which I can highly recommend to anybody who wants to see a glimpse of Scotland and the Highlands but has little time. Our main guide Rich was absolutely fantastic, a wealth of knowledge, entertaining us with cool stories about Scotland without ever boring us. Cool dude! Also the driverguides to be, Jaime and Dan, were great, providing us with even more local insights and were really cool to hang out with. These three are about as Scottish as it gets :) and really made our trip something special.
I would do this tour anytime again (or maybe a longer one next time:)). Stunning landscape, lots of cool stops at hidden gems, so every hour we would stop at least once. Even if the weather rainy it's a great tour to da, as you're moving on their yellow busses, you can see the Scottish Highlands pass by outside while being in the warmth - and after the stops your stuff will dry quickly as they have heating next to the seats :)
Morag's lodge at Loch Ness was compfy too and they sell superb meals for just under 9 GBP and breakkie for 4GBP.
Once Corona-virus allows you to travel again, look for no further than Haggis Adventures if you want to explore Scotland!

The scenery on this 3-day trip is incredible and the history behind it astounding. The big yellow bus has gained a few more followers but other than the occasional refuge from the rain it felt like we were off the bus more than on it. From Bonnie Prince Charlie on Drummossie Moor to the faeries on Skye and William Wallace in Sterling (and many more in between) you are definitely not left wanting. Topped off by the accommodating Morag’s Lodge (try the pie - you won’t regret it), and of course our tour guide Rich and the two trainees Dan D and Jamie Mac who’s knowledge, humour and sound, welcoming personalities brought this tour to life. I couldn’t recommend it more.

Best guides EVER!!!
Mar 2020 • Friends
What a great 3 day tour! The days just flew by and we got to see and experience more that I could have imagined.

I can’t say enough positive things about Rich, Jamie Mac and Disco Dan! They were professional, fun and made the 3 day tour super special! Rich is one of the best story tellers I’ve here heard - he makes history fun and interesting. Accommodations were great and the food in the hostel is the best I had on my whole trip. My only regret is not having signed up for the 5 or 7 day tour! Thanks for the amazing trip Rich, Dan and Jamie :-)

Lets give it up for SCOTLAND
Mar 2020
Charlie Hume is easily the best tour guide that we could have asked for on this trip. If there was an option to rate this tour more than 5 stars I would. This was easily the most fun that I have had on a trip ever. I would easily recommend this trip to anyone that is going to Scotland.

Mar 2020
If I could give this tour more than five stars, I would. Everything about the trip was more than accommodating, and was more than enough fun for myself. Charlie is the best tour guide that I have ever had, and Iain was amazing as well. Would recommend 100 more times!

Could not have asked for a better Highlands experience!
Mar 2020 • Business
Haggis Adventures offers a spectacular highlight of the Scottish Highlands. Our guides, Iain and Charlie were equally knowledgeable, professional, and fun. The entire group highly enjoyed the three day and adventure, and despite the poor weather, the guides made the absolute most of our weekend fun. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone seeking a fun way to see the Highlands.
