Day Tour to Loch Ness and the Highlands from Glasgow
Tour Theme: Luxury Coach Tours
This tour starts from: Glasgow
Duration: 1 Day - 12 Hours 30min. approx.
A full day tour taking in some of the most breath-taking and dramatic scenery of the Scottish Highlands, including Glencoe, a cruise on Loch Ness and visit to Urquhart Castle.
From Glasgow we travel north, before making a coffee stop on the shores of Loch Lomond. Travelling the length of the loch, we climb up into the Highlands, over the unique desolate landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to the majestic Glencoe, one of Scotland's best-loved glens, made famous for the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan.
We stop in the Fort William area for lunch, then continue into the natural beauty of the Great Glen as we pass beneath Britain's highest mountain,Ben Nevis. Travelling on, we can admire the Caledonian Canal, the pretty village of Fort Augustus, and enjoy spectacular views of Loch Ness as we drive along the 24-mile shoreline to Urquhart Castle.
Loch Ness is over 700 feet deep but is of course better-known for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster, affectionately called 'Nessie'. Spend approximately 2 hours at Loch Ness, where you can choose to take a wonderful 5 Star Jacobite cruise and explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle and its modern visitor centre.
At Inverness, capital of the Highlands, we start our return for home, crossing the Grampian Mountains and the woodland scenery of Perthshire, including the Forest of Atholl, with an evening stop at the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry en route back to Glasgow.
