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.

  • Learn about the region's history from your guide
  • Enjoy an optional cruise on Loch Ness or visit Urquhart Castle
  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from central Glasgow
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.

Hello Sebastian A, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for your Driver-Guide and your Loch Ness tour. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed your time with us! I am so pleased to hear that your driver-guide was able to keep you entertained on tour and that you enjoyed the castle and cruise on Loch Ness - travelling all that way makes it worth it for this venture out on the water. We agree that if you only have 1 spare day to see the Highlands and Loch Ness then this is the way to cover most ground. Cash is also a great tip - we encourage this too. Thank you! Please do think of us again if you wish to travel more in Scotland. All the best, Shea
