Highland Glens Tour inc. Glencoe
A stunning Highland day tour following the ancient fault line that cuts through the Scottish Highlands - the Great Glen - from Inverness to the stunning Glencoe. Along the way we also visit Fort William and Inverlochy Castle.
Castles, clans, rebellions and ‘Bonnie’ Princes provide a brilliant history of the Scottish Highlands while the dramatic Great Glen and Glencoe provide the breath-taking scenery.
The Highland Glens tour begins at Inverness where we follow the ancient geological fault line that cuts through the Highlands - the Great Glen - along the banks of Loch Ness down past Urquhart Castle. After a short stop for photos near Loch Ness, we continue along Ness-side to Invermoriston and then Fort Augustus where we take take time to admire the Caledonian Canal and explore the village. Leaving Fort Augustus we travel to Spean Bridge where its Commando Memorial has a magnificent views of the peaks of Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor.
After a lunch stop at Fort William we journey south to the breath-taking scenery of Glencoe - the most magnificent glen in Scotland. Here we enjoy the stunning landscape, explore the ancient history of Glencoe, along with time at the Glencoe Visitors Centre. Our return journey takes up back up the Great Glen towards Inverness, but not before we explore the ruins of the historic ruins of Inverlochy Castle, a wonderful hidden gem of a castle that’s nearly 800 years old.

I can promise our tour will include a visit to this stunning viewpoint... but maybe not the weather - we are the land of four seasons in one day!
