Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

The Scottish Highlands had to be one of the most beautiful places I’ve seen in the world and I am not exaggerating. During my four days in Scotland, I did a day trip to see the beautiful highlands and lowlands the country boasts and it definitely did not disappoint!

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

If you are visiting Edinburgh and are looking to do a day trip to the Scottish countryside, I highly recommend booking a tour though Rabbie’s Tours. I did the West Highlands, Lochs & Castles tour. You could also do Loch Ness, Glencoe & The Highlands tour; Loch Lomond, The Kelpies & Stirling Castle tour; Highlands Lochs, Glens & Whiskey tour plus so much more. They also have tours that last a few days and even some that last a few weeks. (If you are looking to visit the Isle of Skye, Rabbie’s offers great group trips there!)

Getting to and Around Scotland:

My time in Scotland was the last leg of my trip to the United Kingdom. I started off by taking a flight from JFK into London’s Gatwick Airport. I spent two days in London before taking a train to the English countryside where I spent time in Bath and The Cotswolds. From Bristol Airport in England, I took a short and cheap flight to Edinburgh. Coming home, I flew from Edinburgh back to JFK with a layover in Amsterdam.

During my time in Edinburgh, I mainly walked everywhere and also took Uber when needed. Also in Edinburgh are taxi services, buses and trams. If you are traveling around Scotland, it is best to rent a car and there is also a train. Since I did my day trip to the Scottish Highlands through Rabbie’s, they provided a private luxury van for our small tour group.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

If you are looking to explore the Highlands, I highly recommend booking a tour. Unless you are exploring Scotland with a local, it is really hard to see all of the hidden gems. If it weren’t for my tour with Rabbie’s I wouldn’t have thought to see half of everything we visited and I also wouldn’t have gotten the educational experience that I did. Each spot we went to was absolutely breathtaking.

Where to Stay in Scotland:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

During my time in Scotland, I based myself in the country’s capital of Edinburgh, since there is so much to see and do just in the city alone. During my three nights in Edinburgh, I stayed at an adorable Airbnb in the Old Town. All throughout the city are beautiful hotels to suit all budgets along with hostels and HomeAway options.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route Through Rabbie’s Tours:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Overall, I had such a blast on my Scottish Highlands tour with Rabbie’s. Our tour guide Grant was hilarious and super knowledgeable. He definitely kept the tour interesting and also played traditional Scottish music during the drive to set the mood. Below is everything we visited on the tour:

The Kelpies:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Located 20 minutes to a half hour from Edinburgh is The Helix, an all-new parkland that provides outdoor activities and water sports. This great park is also home to The Kelpies, which are two 98-foot (or 30-meter) horse head sculptures. It is truly fascinating to see The Kelpies since it is the largest equine sculptures in the world.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Created by Andy Scott, The Kelpies are considered a man-made wonder and a feat of engineering. These horses have also been modeled after Clydesdale horses, Duke and Baron. The Kelpies also represent horses of Scottish industry and economy.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Our time at The Kelpies were just a quick stop to see these incredible sculptures, but if you have the extra time, I recommend taking a tour and going inside of them.

Doune Castle:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Our second stop on our Highlands tour was Doune Castle in Stirling – a 14th Century courtyard castle that is considered one of the best preserved Medieval castles in Scotland. It is at Doune Castle where Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Outlander, Game of Thrones and The Outlaw King were filmed. (Please note that you will need to pay an extra fee of 8 pounds when you enter Doune Castle.)

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

During a walk through Doune Castle, you could see the domestic quarters that include the Lord’s Hall with its carved oak screen, musicians’ gallery and the double fireplace.  You could also discover how grand banquets were prepared in the kitchen and walk up to the castle lookouts where you could catch views of the River Teith and Ben Lomond from the battles back then. It is absolutely beautiful and definitely a castle that cannot be missed.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Doune Castle is located in the Scottish lowlands and the surrounding grounds feature beautiful walking paths and gardens. Since I visited the Scottish Highlands during October 2019, the autumn foliage was absolutely stunning there.

Loch Lubnaig:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

After spending some time at Doune Castle, we made our way into the strikingly beautiful Scottish Highlands. Our first stop was Loch Lubnaig, which is a small, but breathtaking stretch of freshwater lake between the mountains of Ben Ledi, Benvane and Ben Vorlich. An interesting fact about this lake is that if you look at it from a bird’s eye view, it shows how Lubnaig means crooked in Gaelic.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Loch Lubnaig is the perfect place to go hiking, camping, biking and fishing. Definitely do not miss out on visiting Loch Lubnaig when you travel through the Scottish Highlands.

Loch Awe:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Another beautiful loch to see in the Scottish Highlands is Loch Awe. It is considered the longest loch in Scotland and has close connections to the MacArthur, Campbell, Stewart and MacGregor clans. If you are unaware, a Scottish clan is a kinship group in Scotland. Clans usually give a sense of shared identity and descent to members and in modern day have an official structure that is recognized by the Court of the Lord Lyon, which regulates the Scottish heraldry and coats of arms.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

In the town of Lochawe, you could visit Kilchurn Castle, the Clan Gregor, St. Conan’s Kirk and more.

The Town of Inveraray and Inveraray Castle:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

During lunchtime, we stopped in the quaint town of Inveraray, which is a traditional county village of Argyll. Throughout the small town are beautiful Scottish Georgian houses and buildings and you could also catch stunning views of the still waters of Loch Fyne and the nearby mountains.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

The 3rd Duke of Argyll established Inveraray in 1745. In addition to stopping in a charming restaurant or café to grab food, you could also visit the neoclassical church and the Inveraray Jail and Courthouse. The prison is now an award-winning museum that recounts the conditions for prisoners from medieval times up until the 19th Century.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

While I was walking through Inveraray, I stopped in the George Hotel to grab food and a beer! I highly recommend eating at the George Hotel because it is so cute and warm. There are fireplaces everywhere, Christmas lights and an overall welcoming vibe. I enjoyed lunch with a fellow American woman from Austin, Texas. I savored the smoked salmon sandwich on brioche bread with chips (fries) and a salad on the side along with a Scottish ale. It was absolutely amazing!

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

After savoring a delicious lunch, we walked to the beautiful neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle that still remains the family home of the Dukes of Argyll. This castle is absolutely beautiful and the gardens are definitely one of the highlights of visiting here.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

The Inverary Castle has been overlooking the shores of Loch Fyne since the 15th Century. The castle that stands there today is a newer version as a result from a fire that happened in 1877. You could take a tour through the castle and check out each floor, learn about the Campbell Clan and educate yourself about the history behind this castle.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

The castle grounds offer picturesque walking trails, which covers 50,000 acres of woodland trails; the Caravan Park, which is a lovely park just over 2 miles long that overlooks Loch Fyne and the hills and glens of the West Highlands and there is also snipe shooting available on the Isle of Tiree. (This island boasts the Guinness Book of Records entered for the amount of snipe shots with one barrel.) There is also a gift shop and café at the castle.

Rest and Be Thankful Pass:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Like I mention above, the Scottish Highlands was one of the most breathtaking places I’ve been to, featuring nature like I’ve never seen before (along with New Zealand, Peru and the Canadian Rockies). Throughout the Western Highlands were rolling green hills that sparkled when a spec of sunlight came out, dark green and bright yellow evergreen trees, medieval stone castles nestled within the stunning mountains, luscious farmland and of course glistening lochs. A fun fact I learned about the land of Scotland was that at one point it was once part of the North American continent. It was neighbors with Canada and the mountains that you see in these photos were once the Appalachian Mountains of the East Coast!

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

During our drive through the most breathtaking part of the Highlands, I was in awe of the amazing beauty surrounding me. Grant told us about the hardships a lot of the Scottish people living in the Highlands faced during the Protestant Reformation. We made a pit stop at the Rest and Be Thankful Pass, where we had a moment of silence and allowed all of the natural beauty to sink in from the popular resting spot of Scottish soldiers. It was super windy, but a very stunning site and viewpoint!

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park:

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

Our last stop on our Western Highlands tour was to the conservation village of Luss where we got to take in all of the beauty of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

I truly fell in love with Loch Lomond and found it to be so peaceful and relaxing. Surrounding the lake is a beautiful beach area and there are red deer and oak woodlands that you could admire for days. The Trossachs National Park is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor adventures as well and Luss offers wonderful eateries, cafés and beautiful stone houses.


Scottish Highlands Tour Route; The Perfect Day Trip from Edinburgh

After spending time at Loch Lomond, we drove a few hours back to Edinburgh. We were picked up and dropped off at Rabbie’s office located in the New Town of Edinburgh. Inside of the office is a café where you could grab hot beverages, sandwiches, salads, baked goods and more.

    Another great blog on the Scottish Highlands ~ love all the old world architecture that the Highlands have to offer ~ my favorite photo was the photo with you and the antique telephone booth ~ awesome to see that. What an iconic symbol of that area. Looks like a very nice place to visit! Love you. Mom xoxo

    Your trip looks so amazing! I’m really curious to hear if you thought Scotland and New Zealand seems similar! I’ve heard people say they’re very alike and other people say that they’re completely different! Would be fun to hear your take on it since you’ve been to both <3

    • Taylor Deer on November 7, 2019 at 8:53 pm

      It really was wonderful! I would say they are both so breathtaking, but in different ways. I got that “Wow” factor visiting both places. Scotland is more green and New Zealand has more aqua blue waters. 🙂

  3. Elena Pappalardo on November 9, 2019 at 11:56 am

    WOW! I seriously didn’t know how GORGEOUS the Scottish Highlands are! Thanks for giving me another bucket list place – your pics are stunning!!
