What to Expect
This guided small-group tour begins in central Glasgow. Board a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach destined for the Scottish Highlands, a land steeped in legend and beauty. Observe the banks of Loch Lomond, one of Scotland’s largest lochs, on the way to your first stop in Glencoe. In Glencoe, take a scenic stroll and learn about the brutal massacre that occurred there in 1692. Continue your journey to Loch Ness via the Great Glen and Fort William. On arrival at Loch Ness, enjoy free time to either wander the banks or take a cruise (own expense). After sufficient admiration, travel through Cairngorms National Parks and spend more leisure time in Pitlochry, a pretty Victorian town. During the return journey to Glasgow, stop for photos of Stirling Castle and learn about the endeavors of William Wallace, whom the film Braveheart was based on. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point in Glasgow.
