What You Can Expect

Loch Ness, Glencoe and the Highlands Small Group Day Trip from Glasgow

Glencoe Mountains, Scotland

Meet your guide bright and early in central Glasgow for your full-day tour. Grab a comfortable seat in the luxury coach for the northbound ride toward the Glencoe, a glen of breathtaking beauty that boasts high mountain peaks, ridges, bubbling rivers and waterfalls. Along the way, you’ll pass the ‘bonnie, bonnie’ banks of Loch Lomond for some stunning views of Scotland’s largest loch. 

In Glencoe, enjoy a scenic stroll to stretch your legs, and learn about the historic MacDonald clan that resided here and suffered in the brutal massacre of 1692. Afterward, hop back in the coach for to continue your journey through Great Glen and past Fort William, a key military post during the 18th-century Jacobite Rebellions.

Sidle up to the banks of Loch Ness, where the tour will break for some free time. Explore Fort Augustus, grab some lunch or take an hour-long cruise on the loch for a chance spotting of the famous Loch Ness monster (all activities at own expense).

After your lunch-time break, continue back toward Inverness and wind through Cairngorms National Park. Catch lovely views of peaks and waterfalls, and hear about the series Monarch of the Glen that was filmed here. You’ll head over Drummochter Summit and soon arrive at the charming Victorian town of Pitlochry, where you’ll have free time to explore before heading to Perthshire.

From here, begin you return trip to Glasgow, passing Stirling Castle on the way. Snap some photos of the historic site — former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots — and learn about its colorful history, riddled with warfare such as the Battle of Stirling Bridge led by William Wallace. 

Then relax for the return ride to Glasgow, where your 12-hour trip ends back at the starting point in the late evening.

This trip was by far one of the main highlights of our 3 week stay in Scotland. The views at the stops in the highland were amazing, really breathtaking. The cruise on Loch Ness was great and really gives you a nice view of the surrounding area and the history.

The best of the trip, however, was by far our tour guide Ian. Wow, if you have a chance to go on a tour with this guy, wherever it is in Scotland, you will not be disappointed. Ian is INCREDIBLY knowledgeable about historical and modern day Scotland. His knowledge was only surpassed by his story telling ability. This man has perfected storytelling, sharing stories of Scottish history in such an emotional and engaging manner. Ian is a hero and deserves all the praise he can ever possibly receive. Simply said, not all heros wear capes.

Well done, mate.

Our tour guide Graham was great. Small group was really nice - the only annoying thing was the woman who was constantly on her phone the whole time talking to friends and family. The Highlands are stunning to see, and Loch Ness was incredible. Definitely a MUST

This was one of the best tours we have ever been on. Lauren was an amazing tour guide with so much knowledge of the history of the Highlands and Scottish history. We made pit stops along the way to snap photos and take in the beautiful scenery. The trip was a bit of a drive so these stops were perfect to get out and stretch. I would recommend this trip to anyone who would like to enjoy a beautiful drive with a wonderful tour guide. The entire experience was amazing. Kiley and I would like to thank Lauren for an amazing trip and for playing some amazing tunes there and back! Esp. Paolo Nutini Also, when you stop for lunch, make sure to pop into the butcher shop and try Haggis. It's on 2 gbp for a nice portion and the staff is very friendly. To our surprise, the Haggis was AMAZING! Thanks again for a great time! xxxx, Kiley and Brittany
