  • See the best of the Highlands in just one day from Glasgow
  • Learn about the region's history from your guide
  • Enjoy an optional cruise on Loch Ness or visit Urquhart Castle
  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from central Glasgow
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Glasgow. Board your air-conditioned coach and journey north, passing by Loch Lomond National Park and its famously "bonnie, bonnie banks." Continue into the Highlands, traveling by Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount mountain range, toward Glencoe, the haunting site of the 1692 MacDonald clan massacre and recognizable from the James Bond movie, Skyfall. Continue past Loch Linnhe, one of Scotland's deepest lakes (lochs), and stop for lunch in Fort William (own expense). See one of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, as you journey into the Great Glen. Travel through the Fort Augustus village toward Loch Ness. Keep your eyes peeled for the famous monster, and add on an optional boat cruise or Urquhart Castle tour. Continue north to Inverness, before heading back through Perthshire and the Forest of Atholl. Take a short break in Pitlochry, before concluding your tour back in central Glasgow.

It was a very long day with very little stops along the way. The scenery is beautiful of course but we could have stopped in much more beautiful spots and had a bit more time in them especially when we got to Loch Ness. This trip would have been much better if it's spread across

Response from Anna D, Reservations Team Leader at Loch Ness, Glencoe, and the Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow
Responded 1 week ago
Hello, I am sorry to hear that you felt you spent too much time on the coach during your tour. This tour is our most demanding, with over 12 hours of touring in all, and for this reason we make sure we include this on our website and brochure. Our Reservations Team is always on hand for any customer queries before joining. Due to the tour covering much of the Country, we are unable to stop and view all of the beautiful scenery on the tour route. However, we do try to make sure that the stops the tour does make are as long as possible. The stop at Loch Ness is roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes long but I am sorry if you felt that was not long enough. We do offer a two-day Loch Ness, Inverness and the Highlands tour from Glasgow which may have been more suitable for you and, should you visit Scotland again in the future, our Reservations team would be more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding our multi-day tours. Kind Regards, Anna

We had our tours yesterday for Loch Lomond and today for Loch Ness, meeting place was so easy to find. Charlie our driver/guide is the best one that you could ever have. He knows a lot of things even local food gems in every stop over. Both our tours was so worth it. Highlands

Didn't like the trip at all. The driver / tour guide did the best he could, but the programme is absolutely crazy. We stopped very few times. Loch Lomond - 10 mins, not enough. Somewhere on the way - 5 min, more than enough as plenty of mosquitoes. Fort William - 55 min, but

Dear Vadymg, I'm sorry to hear you found your tour to Loch Ness and Glencoe useless. This tour is our most demanding, with over 12 hours of touring, and for this reason we make sure we include this on our website, brochure and our Reservations Team are on hand to inform customers before joining - long days are not to everyone's taste! However if you're interested in seeing as much of Scotland as possible in one day, it's perfect! We do stop in some beautiful locations - some of which you have failed to mention, such as Glencoe, one of the most breathtaking glens in the country. We would love to stop at more locations but unfortunately due to the timings of this tour, it's simply not possible to see absolutely everything in one day. We also can't help the midges in Scotland - at this time of year in the middle of nowhere, they're rife! I'll pass on your comments to the Loch Ness cruise. I'm very surprised, as the team there are incredibly experienced and have taken many steps to ensure their cruise is as comfortable as ever during these times. In short, I don't think this particular type of tour was suited to you. Something shorter and more relaxing would be more to your liking, and our Reservations Team are always on hand to offer any suggestions. All the best, Amy
