Loch Ness, Glencoe, and the Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow
US$53.58
Overview
Make the most of your time in Scotland on this guided day trip from Glasgow to Loch Ness, Glencoe, and the Highlands. Visit the country's most famous and most beautiful attractions while seamlessly transported in a comfortable bus. Also see one of Britain's highest mountain and visit the charming town of Pitlochry while your guide explains the complex backstories and culture of this dramatic (in both appearance and history) region.
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Glasgow. Board your air-conditioned coach and journey north, passing by Loch Lomond National Park and its famously "bonnie, bonnie banks."

Continue into the Highlands, traveling by Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount mountain range, toward Glencoe, the haunting site of the 1692 MacDonald clan massacre and recognizable from the James Bond movie, Skyfall.

Continue past Loch Linnhe, one of Scotland's deepest lakes (lochs), and stop for lunch in Fort William (own expense). See one of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, as you journey into the Great Glen. Travel through the Fort Augustus village toward Loch Ness. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous monster, and add on an optional boat cruise or Urquhart Castle tour.

Continue north to Inverness, before heading back through Perthshire and the Forest of Atholl. Take a short break in Pitlochry, before concluding your tour back in central Glasgow.

A challenging day

Bus was packed. People on tour kept coming back to bus late which meant that we got to Pitlochrey when everything was closed and the attendant at the public toilets even closed the toilets early so had to use the pub. It wasn't the tour...More

I suspect due to the length of the trip. It's a 12 hour day and the journey back is motorway, so although you see Stirling Castle as you get nearer to Glasgow, the main scenary is road and traffic. Very boring for little... More

I think they aim to get you back by 7:30pm, but it’s traffic-dependent once you near Glasgow. The first time I went I was back by 8, the second time was around 7:45. Hope that helps!
