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.

Absolutely amazing tour guide who made the tour 10x better. Loved the small tour size. Beautiful views, lots of interesting information. Lots of driving so bring something to do, but it goes by fairly quickly. To our tour guide Grant, thank you so much! We really loved the tour, even if we haven't ever seen Braveheart :
