THE JACOBITE EXPERIENCE
Day 1 – Wilderness and warriors… Snap a photo of the Forth Railway Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then take a riverside walk in the Highlands at Dunkeld. The tour continues through the breathtaking Drumochter Pass, skirts the stunning peaks of the Cairngorm National Park and visits Culloden*, last stand of the Jacobites against the government forces. The first day ends in Fort Augustus at the banks of Loch Ness. Overnight: Fort Augustus
Day 2 – Take a steam train back in time… A quick journey to board the Jacobite steam train, and then you’re off. This is one of the world’s great train journeys and will take you past Britain’s highest mountain, deepest loch, shortest river and most westerly station. You’ll cross the viaduct featured in the Harry Potter films and pass the Glenfinnan Monument where Bonnie Prince Charlie raised his standard at the beginning of the 1745 Jacobite rising.
Have seafood for lunch at Mallaig… Lunchtime is at the west coast town of Mallaig, where you can taste the best of Scottish seafood.
Home via Glen Coe… Turning south, you’ll visit Glen Coe, where the MacDonalds were betrayed, then experience the beauty of Rannoch Moor and Stirlingshire as you head for home.
