Description

Take a journey from the city to the beautiful Highlands of Scotland. Enjoy a full day exploring the Scottish Highlands, taking in the atmospheric scenery of Glencoe and Rannoch Moor. Visit Urquhart Castle, take a Jacobite boat cruise across Loch Ness and end your day in the picturesque highland village of Pitlochry.

Beginning from Glasgow, your tour heads North, first passing by the 'bonnie bonnie banks' of Loch Lomond. We pause for refreshments before climbing into the Highlands, over the dramatic landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to Glencoe, one of Scotlanbd's most haunting glens and site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan. Glencoe was also featured in the James Bond film, Skyfall.

Our tour continues by Loch Linnhe and stops in the Fort William area for lunch (own expense) and continues on by Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis as we make our way into the Great Glen. We then travel through the pretty village of Fort Augustus on the banks of Loch Ness, and drive along the shoreline to Urquhart Castle.

Loch Ness is most famous for its sightings of its infamous resident, 'Nessie'. Spend an hour at the loch, with the opportunity to take a Jacobite boat cruise or explore Urquhart Castle for a while and join the cruise for the return journey! (own expense).

After our stop at Loch Ness, we journey further north to Inverness, the Capital of the Highlands, and then begin our return for home. We cross the Grampian Mountains, through Perthshire and the Forest of Atholl, to the Victorian town of Pitlochry, where we pause for refreshments. We then return to Glasgow, where your day tour ends.
