The Scottish Highlands occupy 32% of the United Kingdom, so naturally there is A LOT to see. We’ve condensed all the best bits into one phenomenal tour!

This is a typical itinerary for our Private Mini Highlands and Gleneagles Luxury Day Trip

The entire trip can be customised to suit your needs

Kelpies

First Stop

The Kelpies

Scotland certainly has no shortage of myths and legends to share, but none are more recognisable and shrouded in mystery than the enduring tale of the Kelpies. These two colossal 30 metre high stainless steel structures were designed by Andy Scott and completed in 2013. They are absolutely breathtaking, leaving many of our guests surprised at just how big they are! This first stop is an exceptional example of the combination of Scottish heritage and innovation.

These statues are absolutely callosal, so have your cameras at the ready!

Culross

Next Stop:

Culross

As we approach our next stop, you wouldn’t be wrong to think that you’ve stepped back in time!
The quaint village of Culross was founded in the 6th century on the banks of the Firth of Forth and boasts streets and streets of beautifully preserved buildings, squares and gardens; including the 16th century Culross Palace, the village hall, rows of fishermen’s cottages, and of course the historic Mercat Cross. If you’re wanting to explore some of the best preserved examples of historic living in Scotland, Culross is the place to do it!

Fun Fact: If you’re a fan of the TV series “Outlander”, you may be more familiar will Culross than you think, as many scenes throughout the series were actually filmed in and around the village!

Gleneagles Hotel

Next Stop:

Gleneagles via Glendevon

As our tour journeys deeper into the Highlands, our first point of call is Glen Devon, a picturesque glen that boasts exquisite views over Castlehill Reservoir and of the River Devon which flows directly through the heart of it. The area is rich with fine examples of Scottish flora and fauna, including otters, pine marten and deer, so keep your eyes and ears alert for any approaching visitors! We’ll continue onwards through the stunning landscape of the Ochil Hills to Gleneagles where the surrounding glen will become steadily more wild the further north we travel. When we reach our destination at Gleneagles, there’ll be plenty of time to explore the area around the world-renowned Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Course.

This is certainly no regular route for big tour companies, so rest assured that you’re really exploring the very best side of Scotland!

Crieff

Next Stop:

Crieff / Glenturret Distillery

Just as we begin to feel a million miles away from humanity, the lovely town of Crieff will suddenly appear on the horizon. And although Crieff only boasts a couple thousand residents, the town is jam-packed with history, bloodshed; and at times, cattle too!

For centuries, Highlanders have flocked to Crieff for the yearly Michaelmas cattle sale; when cows of every variety line the narrow streets, waiting to be sold. In 1790, for example, the population of Crieff was just 1,200, which gave the ratio of 10 cows for every resident!
Today however, Crieff is much more recognised for being the home of Scotlands oldest registered distillery, Glenturret, or you could even borrow a book from Innerpeffray Library – founded in 1680, it’s Scotland’s oldest lending library! Crieff is a stop everyone will love.

“Ye lovers of the picturesque, if ye wish to drown your grief,
Take my advice, and visit the ancient town of Crieff.” – William McGonagall

Dunkeld

Final Stop:

Dunkeld

Our final stop on this Mini Highland tour will see us arrive on the banks of the River Tay, where we’ll find the picturesque village of Dunkeld. Hailed as one of the most complete 18th century towns in Scotland, Dunkeld holds a plethora of beautifully preserved cottages, townhouses and squares for intrigued travellers to lose themselves in.

We’ll take a wander around the towering Dunkeld Cathedral, discovering the tomb of the notorious ‘Wolf of Badenoch’ who was buried there in 1405. Heading back into the town and down Atholl Street, there’ll be a perfect photo opportunity of Dunkeld’s brightly coloured “little cottages”, as well as the unforgettable backdrop of Dunkeld bridge spanning the river. And no tour of this historic town would ever be complete without a visit to the famous Ell Shop; featuring the original ‘ell’ measure which stands at just over a metre long, originally used for measuring cloth in days gone by.

Sadly though, all good things must come to an end. However we hope that our Mini Highland tour has given you a sample of all the best bits the Scottish Highlands has to offer.
