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 right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter Films) cross the bridge. Not only will you enjoy this iconic view, but the site is also 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.

Couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide than Andrew, great company and really made the day with his personality and extensive knowledge of history and places. He went above and beyond for the group, made sure we didn’t miss anything and everyone got the most out of their trip. Fantastic guy, really hope he is well rewarded for his hard work. Harry Potter fans: don’t climb up the immediate view point path behind the gift shop/toilets from the car park, head through the car park towards the viaduct following the path right up to it and climb the banking for the best photos. You won’t be able to see the train properly from the first view point!

Callum had a great knowledge of the places he took us to. The trip itself, although quite a long day, gave us what we were looking for and the experience we had yesterday was first rate. I would not hesitate to reccomend this tour. Ps music choice was first rate. Moira Woodland
