What to expect

Journey deep into the Highlands of Scotland on this monster-sized day tour from Glasgow!

You'll first travel up towards the majestic Highlands along the 'bonnie, bonnie' banks of Loch Lomond, where you'll see the shimmering lochs, rugged mountains, and forest-filled glens. Traveling north through Breadalbane (meaning the 'High Country of Scotland'), you'll then make your way towards Rannoch Moor. This 1000ft plain is covered by heather, peat-bogs, and dozens of lochs. You’ll love how this site contrasts with the spectacular mountain scenery of Buachaille Etive Mor (meaning 'the great shepherd of Etive').

Prepare to be mesmerized by the beautiful cliff faces and steep slopes as you then head down to Scotland's most famous valley, Glencoe. After Glencoe, you'll enter the deep glacial valley of the Great Glen and pass through the town of Fort William, in the shadows of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis.

There will be a 1-hour lunch stop at Fort Augustus on the shore of Loch Ness. Fort Augustus boasts the Caledonian Canal, which is a great spot to relax and watch the boats sail by.

After this, you'll travel the full length of the loch and also have the opportunity to take a five-star Jacobite boat cruise. Taking to the waters is the best chance you'll get to spot the monster and take in the views of Urquhart Castle!

From Loch Ness, you head south through the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park. You continue south through the forests of Perthshire and make a short refreshment stop on route before returning to Glasgow.
