Full description

Enjoy a day tour exploring the Port of Mallaig, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, and reach Glenfinnan Viaduct right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express) crossing the tall bridge. Depart Glasgow and travel north, stopping for a coffee and refreshments at a small highland village. Traveling onwards, reach Glencoe, known to many as the location for the Massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. Take photos of this beautiful area whilst you learn about its turbulent past. After Glencoe, travel further north to Fort William. Stop for refreshments and perhaps a bite to eat before journeying down the Road to the Isles. Learn about the history of the area as you approach Mallaig, where you will spend time enjoying lunch and its sea views. From Mallaig, travel eastwards to the main attraction, Glenfinnan. Arrive to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter Films) cross the bridge. Enjoy the iconic view, known as the setting for many Harry Potter scenes, including Loch Shiel. From Glenfinnan, travel southwards, stopping for refreshments before reaching Luss for Loch Lomond. Spend time here to enjoy the beautiful lochside views before returning to Glasgow.

The guide was wonderful :) The tour was excellent. Ideally each place should take half day to cover except Glencoe. If you're looking for a quick crash for up North or the highlands this one's a quick tour. You would want to spend more time at Fort Williams and Mallaig!

Fantastic scenery and majestic Scotland Highlands. Enjoyed the stop off at an old pub and quick stop at the beach. Would have loved to have had more time at the beach and an opportunity to take pictures and brief tour inside of the old church os St’s Mary & Finnan near the Glenfinnan monument.

We got to see beautiful views all day. The tour guide told us a lot about the history of Scotland. We had lots of stops to use the bathroom, purchase souvenirs and get food/drinks. We did spend a lot of time in the car so if you are wanting a laid back tour then this is great. Even with the short time with some stops, we were still able to take lots of photos! We got extra time at the main stop points so you do have enough time to get through everything! I recommend having lunch at The Cabin in Mallaig! Overall worth the money and the time ! Highly recommend this tour if your looking for a day tour in the beautiful highlands of Scotland.
