Loch Ness, Glencoe & the Highlands Day Tour
1 day tour from Edinburgh Your tour passes through the remote beauty of Rannoch Moor and magnificent Glencoe, scene of the clan massacre of the MacDonalds by the Campbells in 1692. Then through Fort William to the beginning of the “Great Glen” and the Caledonian Canal, which you follow up to Fort Augustus, nestling on the banks of Loch Ness. Here you can enjoy your lunch, before travelling the full length of Loch Ness to Inverness. Along the way you will have the opportunity to take a 5 star Jacobite boat cruise on Scotland's most famous loch, giving you a chance to search for the legendary monster, popularly known as "Nessie" and enjoy the views to the ancient stronghold of Urquhart Castle. From here you return south to Glasgow via “Monarch of the Glen” country and the Cairngorms National Park, stopping in Pitlochry and passing Stirling Castle on the way before your return journey to Glasgow.

Eilean Donan Castle You travel first to Stirling Castle where you can visit this imposing stronghold, the favourite residence of the Stuart kings, where Mary Queen of Scots was crowned. You then continue into the beautiful forestcovered mountains of the Trossachs and stop for lunch in heart of the National Park. This area, on the southern edge of the Highlands was home to Rob Roy Macgregor, the famous Scottish outlaw. From here a short drive takes you to the “bonny, bonny banks” of Loch Lomond. At Loch Lomond you can visit the National Park Centre or walk along part of the West Highland Way to a hilltop viewpoint with spectacular views of the loch. Afterwards visit the malt whisky distillery of Glengoyne for a tour and dram before returning to Glasgow.

Culzean Castle, Burns Country and the Ayrshire Coast

On this Scotland tours leaving From Glasgow you quickly climb into the Renfrewshire Hills where the first stop of the day will give you a glimpse into the future at Europe’s largest windfarm – big enough to supply clean energy to over 180,000 homes. From here the road south into Ayrshire is quick and easy passing through rich farming country with many small towns and villages. On arrival at Culzean Country Park you will have the choice of visiting the castle and gardens or just the gardens and woodland walks. An entry fee is payable on arrival. (Please note there is no free option at this stop). The castle dates from the late 18th Century – a peaceful time in Scottish history so it is less a defensive castle and more like a great country house with fine furniture and beautiful Robert Adam architecture. Sitting right on the edge of the cliffs looking out over the Firth of Clyde the views are superb and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. For those who like walking there are miles of tracks and footpaths through the grounds – taking in the Swan Pond, deer park, and walled gardens as well as rocky coves and sandy beaches. This will also be your lunch stop. After lunch you will follow the coastline to the tiny fishing village of Dunure with its ancient ruined castle and dark history.

Continuing on, the road leads down into the outskirts of the market town of Ayr. This is the countryside of Robert Burn’s, Scotland’s national poet. You will see many places mentioned in his poems and songs –from Auld Kirk Alloway to the “Banks and Braes o’ Bonnie Doon”. The recently redeveloped visitor centre will tell you all you need to know about this remarkable man. Born a poor farmer’s son but now famous as the writer of “Auld Lang Syne”, a song known and sung in friendship throughout the world. There are also riverside walks and the Auld Brig (old bridge) to explore as well as the haunted ruins of the old church. From here we return to Glasgow for approx. 18.00

1 Day Outlander Adventure from Glasgow

Visit three castles and a well-preserved village on this adventure through the sights and stories of Outlander. Doune Castle - In Outlander, it’s the fictional Castle Leoch. And in reality, it’s a stunning castle with a tall gatehouse, an impressive great hall, and lovely views of the River Teith. Falkland - This quaint town in the Kingdom of Fife boasts a beautiful palace and was the location of the 1940’s Inverness scenes. Culross - This 16th-century village poses as Cranesmuir in Outlander. It also starred in the movies: Captain America: First Avenger and The 39 Steps. Midhope Castle - Jamie’s family home, Lallybroch, is as lovely as it looks in the show. Blackness Castle - The tough-looking castle looks like it could fend off an entire empire. And in Outlander, it impersonates Fort William. Linlithgow Palace - This pretty palace is a favourite of ours because of its connection to Mary, Queen of Scots. It’s also known for one of the most intense scenes in the Outlander series. There are moments that make your heart pound, scenes that leave you on the edge of your seat, and kisses that cause you to blush.

But no matter how thrilling Outlander is, we think the real-life sites are even more emotive.

Departs daily, MTWTFSS, all year round. Departure Time - 09:15 Return Time - 18:30 (in Winter, we have removed the visit to Falkland Palace and we have also amended the itinerary to the following route:

  • Doune Castle
