This 2-day heritage tour of the Scottish Highlands features historic locations linked to the Jacobite movement of 18th-century Scotland. Visit the village of Dunkeld, drive through Cairngorm National Park to Loch Ness, and stay overnight in Fort Augustus. You’ll ride to Mallaig aboard the Jacobite steam train, featured as the Hogwarts Express in the popular Harry Potter films. Along the way, hear tales of battles fought by the Jacobites — supporters of the exiled King James II.
What to Expect
This small-group tour of the Scottish Highlands offers a historical spin on the region; your guide regales you with tales of the Jacobite army, which led several 18th-century rebellions in Scotland under the exiled court of King James II. Along with visits to Loch Ness, Dunkeld and Mallaig, you’ll enjoy a Jacobite steam train ride, aka the Hogwarts Express.

Travel in the personalized comfort of a minivan, and stay overnight at a hotel or B&B accommodation in Fort Augustus, including breakfast.
