Itinerary

Glasgow

You depart Glasgow and travel towards the Highlands along the “bonnie, bonnie” banks of Loch Lomond. This is Scotland’s largest loch and it takes its name from the mountain, Ben Lomond, on the eastern shore.

You cross the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland and venture into the majestic Highlands where the scenery changes dramatically. The flat plains of the Lowlands transform into shimmering lochs, rugged mountains, and forest-filled glens. The alluring beauty makes it easy to forget this was once a battleground of the fiercely territorial Highland clans.

Glencoe

Travelling north through Breadalbane (meaning the ‘High Country of Scotland’), you climb towards Rannoch Moor. This 1000ft plain is covered by heather, peat bogs, and dozens of lochs. You’ll love how it contrasts with the spectacular mountain scenery of Buachaille Etive Mor (meaning ‘the great shepherd of Etive’).

You then head down to Scotland’s most famous valley, Glencoe, where you’ll be mesmerised by the beautiful cliff faces and steep slopes.

Fort Augustus

After Glencoe, you enter a deep glacial valley, known as the Great Glen.

Passing through the town of Fort William you travel under Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, before arriving 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. You stop here for one hour to give you time for lunch.

After your lunch, you get the opportunity to take a five-star Cruise Loch Ness boat cruise from Fort Augustus*. Taking to the waters is the best chance you’ll get to spot the monster and admire the beauty of this mysterious loch. 

*The Loch Ness boat cruise is weather dependent and may be cancelled without notice.

Glasgow

You leave the scenic village and begin your journey back towards Glasgow, but not to worry, there are many lovely stops along the way for photos and views, including the quaint town of Pitlochry. You continue south through the forests of Perthshire before finally reaching Glasgow in the evening.
