On your private Scottish Highlands tour, the first stop is the old town of Stirling, a history-rich city built on volcanic rock with medieval Stirling Castle at its heart. The 1297 Battle of Stirling Bridge, where William Wallace defeated the English, is a notable site in the legacy of the First War of Scottish Independence. Lying to the east of the peaks of Ben Lomond, the Trossachs is a beguiling mix of wild wooded glens and thistle-clad braes on the shores of Loch Lomond, Great Britain’s largest freshwater expanse and home to 30 islets. Forming the gateway to the Highlands, Loch Lomond leads you northwest to the steep-sided Glencoe Valley, where gushing streams and cascading waterfalls are looped by a riddle of mountain trails. Scan the horizon here on your private Scottish Highlands tour for a rare glimpse of Scotland’s magnificent golden eagle. 

On to Fort William on the lake-lapped shores of Loch Linnhe in the shadows of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak. Surrounded by the curvaceous terrain of the Glen Nevis valley, home to the dramatic 120-metre Steall Falls, breathtaking views abound of dark green forests and wildflower-scattered trails. Nearby, leafy walks hug the banks of the River Ness, a pleasing prelude to the myth-rich waters of magnificent Loch Ness and its famous cryptozoological resident. On your return to Edinburgh, journey through the northern city of Inverness and down through the sharp and winding mountains and forests of the Cairngorm Forest.
