Tracing the 17th- and 18th-century Jacobite Risings through Scotland's Highlands independently would involve hours of planning.

Traveling by comfortable midi-coach, visit key Jacobite locations such as Culloden and Glencoe; see Loch Ness, and ride the Jacobite Steam Train—aka Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter movies.
