From Glasgow: Glenfinnan, Fort William, and Glencoe Day Trip

1. From Glasgow: Glenfinnan, Fort William, and Glencoe Day Trip

Step into scenes used in famous films like the Harry Potter franchise on this bus day trip from Glasgow. See the bridge that the Hogwarts Express passes over. Visit the Glencoe meadow and view a piece of Jacobite history at the Glenfinnan Monument. Spend some free time in the highlands town of Fort William. Begin your tour with pickup from heart of Glasgow. Board a comfortable and climate controlled bus and be whisked away from the bustling streets. Take in the views as you travel through the heart of the Trossachs National Park which are known as "the Highlands in Miniature." Stop for a rest in Tyndrum, in the Trossachs area, before our Glenfinnan tour continues onwards to Glencoe. The Glen is arguably one of Scotland's most famous glens and it has been featured in the James Bond film 'Skyfall' ' Outlander,' and a Harry Potter film.  Journey onwards to the Glenfinnan Viaduct which is known to many as the "Harry Potter Bridge" where the Jacobite Steam Train (the Hogwarts Express) passes during the parts of the year when it is running. The bridge is surrounded by mountains that line the shores of the stunning Loch Shiel.  See if you can spot a 'grindylow' under the surface causing mischief at Loch Shiel which was the location of the Black Lake at Hogwarts in the Harry Potter films. It was used as the backdrop for scenes like Buckbeak's beautiful flight and the Triwizard Tournament.  Capture pictures of the loch and bridge before heading to the nearby Glenfinnan Monument which symbolizes one of the most important events in Scottish history, the 1745 Jacobite Uprising. From Glenfinnan, travel along the banks of Loch Linnhe to the Highland town of Fort William which sits at the foot of Britain's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis.  Have plenty of free time here for you to stretch your legs and have a lunch break After lunch, begin our return journey to Glasgow. Pass Loch Lomond and pause for a photo and coffee break. Arrive back in the city center in the early evening.

Brilliant experience, seen & learnt so much. Made especially memorable by our driver and tour guide, Jamie. The perfect mix of facts, fun, myths, legends, music, humour and incredible knowledge. So well organised. Such a lovely guy; Thank you, Jamie. Accommodation chosen was clean & comfortable, the only thing missing was a traditional Scottish breakfast. If you add this, it would be nigh on perfect! So enjoyable, would thoroughly recommend.
