  • Loch Ness, Glencoe & Highlands Small-Group Tour from Glasgow

    2. Loch Ness, Glencoe & Highlands Small-Group Tour from Glasgow

    Depart Glasgow at 8:00 and travel north towards the Highlands along the “bonnie, bonnie” banks of Loch Lomond. Crossing the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland you travel into the majestic Highlands where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically – the flat fertile plains of the Lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens.

    We were traveling with my adult brother who is on the autism spectrum And everybody especially our tour guide Alastair was very patient and wonderful with him. We had a three week trip in the UK and those three days in the Highlands with the wonder photo stops and interacting among the passengers was our favorite. My brother talked about this portion of the trip the most and we heard Alastair's name a lot as he reaped our trip to Friends and Family. Pictures do not do the highlands justice. We extended our trip just for this excursion and very thankful we did. It was Amazing!!
