Full description
Escape the bustle of daily life and get back to nature on a 3-day tour of the Scottish Highlands and Isle of Skye, with bed and breakfast accommodations in Inverness. Hear of clan massacres, visit monuments associated with Scotland’s struggle against the English, and see location sites of the blockbuster movie “Highlander.” Day 1: Departing Glasgow take a spectacular route north through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. We will stop at a pretty village perched on the banks of Loch Lomond. Further north, we'll cross the brooding expanse of Rannoch Moor, and travel on through Glen Coe. Here, you'll learn of clan massacres as you stand amongst the eerie but beautiful glen. Overnight stay in Inverness. Day 2: We'll depart Inverness to set off on our day excursion to the Isle of Skye. We will stop for photographs at Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle before crossing the bridge to Skye. On the island we'll explore the craggy Cuillin Mountains, dramatic hills of the Quiraing and beautiful Trotternish Peninsula. Look for seals, peeking out of the waves as you walk along the coast, or spot stags silhouetted on hillsides. We will stop for lunch in the capital of the island, Portree. Day 3: Follow the banks of Loch Ness where you can take a boat tour to Urquhart Castle or do a bit of monster hunting from the shore. The route back to Glasgow takes you past the battlefield of Culloden, site of the defeat of the Jacobite forces. You will also drive through the Cairngorm Mountains, home of Britain’s highest mountain, and see the picturesque Victorian town of Pitlochry. Please note: Glasgow passengers may return to Edinburgh where they are issued with train tickets to Glasgow.

I took this tour on my own, to explore some more of the beauty of Scotland. Our guide, Steven, told us great stories about the places we drove through and visited. The Isle of Skye is a beautiful place to explore, as is the rest of the highlands. The tour visits some of the amazing highlights of the area; our tour guide gave us options to choose from at certain points of the trip. All in all, I had a very pleasant, beautiful, and memorable 3 days.

It is a very nice trip, and you see a lot. but because it is such a vast area you have to drive a lot to get anywhere, which means that you are often somewhere for a short time to see something. tip for the afternoon stop (which is only an hour) just get a sandwich at the Tesco instead of having lunch somewhere. then you can walk through a town at your leisure. we started the trip in Glasgow and ended in Edinburgh, then you get an open train ticket for your return trip to Glasgow. That gave us the option to stay in Edinburgh and go back to Glasgow a few days later!

Amazing Experience

We had an absolutely great time!! The accommodation arranged by the company was absolutely amazing with a stunning sea view! The bus was very comfortable and spacious a vital thing for the hours spent driving. Andrew treated us like proper kings!! He is a great story teller and knew the answers to all of our questions!! He is also very fun and was kind throughout the journey. He also very happily took us to the Fairy pools (which was not included in the package).
