A day tour to the Scottish Highlands where you can take in some of the most inspiring and spectacular scenery Scotland has to offer.
Enjoy a coffee at a 307 year old haunted Inn. Marvel at the grandeur of Glencoe, Scotland’s most famous and scenic glen. Take an optional visit to Urquhart Castle and cruise on Loch Ness.
From Glasgow our route takes us north to Loch Lomond National Park, where we will stop at the Drovers Inn for refreshments. For over 300 years the Drovers has welcomed the great and good including the infamous Rob Roy MacGregor. Said to be “haunted” there are many tales and sightings of ghouls and ghosts wandering around the Drovers Inn.
See the landscape change as we climb towards the Highlands, over desolate Rannoch Moor to spectacular Glencoe, setting to one of the most shameful episodes in Scottish history the "Glencoe Massacre”. We will make a stop here to admire the stunning but haunting beauty of the Glen.
Fort William sits in the shadow of Ben Nevis. We will stop here for lunch before entering the Great Glen. Cutting through the Great Glen is the Caledonian Canal, considered by many as one of the greatest waterways of the world. Sixty miles of outstanding beauty best describes the Caledonian Canal.
Enjoy the superb scenery as we hug the shoreline of Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle (ruins) which sits at the edge of the deepest part of Loch Ness and where most sightings of Nessie have been. With just under 2 hours to spend at Loch Ness there is the option for you to explore Urquhart Castle & Visitor Centre followed by a five star Jacobite Cruise on Loch Ness.
Our return journey to Glasgow takes us through the Highland capital Inverness. Shakespeare’s Macbeth was supposedly based in the earlier 11th century Inverness Castle, the location of Duncan’s murder. It is said that the kingly apparition of Duncan is seen walking along the banks of the Ness near the castle.
On our route down through the Cairngorms National Park and Grampian mountains, keep a look out for Ruthven Barracks, for what you see today is pretty much what is was left like after the Jacobites fled in 1746. We will make an evening stop for refreshments in Perthshire before our return to Glasgow.
