Full description

Embark on a full-day guided bus tour of the Scottish Highlands from Glasgow. Marvel at the wild beauty of the Scottish countryside and visit highlights, including Loch Lomond and Loch Ness.

Head north towards the Highlands and admire the lush pastures of the Scottish countryside from an air-conditioned bus. Stop for a cup of tea or coffee at a café on the shores of Loch Lomond before ascending into the Highlands.

Traverse the desolate landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to Glencoe, the site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan. Learn about the events and history of the area from your guide.

Our guide, Charlie (?) couldnt get his name, was an excellent tour guide. He was humourous and knowledgeable throughout the whole trip. The few issues I had was the long amount of time spent on the bus, rushing off to the other destinations and the lack of leg space. Nevertheless, our guide was always engaging and we got to see numerous wonderful sights along our way.

The tour, the tour guide, bus driver (all the same person) was informative and the sun for most of the day stayed out. It’s just a very long time to be in a bus, and not actually get to see all that was detailed for the trip. It felt like we were just rushing to get to this boat cruise which, just okay-

Excellent tour and really good guide! From Glasgow to Loch Ness there were really many good stops, both for food, but also to see nature and take pictures! The trip home, on the other hand, was very long and tiring with far too few stops to stretch the legs and get some fresh air. Fresh air/air conditioning was unfortunately missing in the minibus.
