Embark on a true Scottish adventure on a bus and walking tour of the Highlands, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, and more from Glasgow.

Travel from Glasgow in the comfort of your bus to reach Loch Lomond's calm shores and the Trossachs National Park. See panoramic views over Loch Lomond as you pass through the Highland Boundary Fault Line. This is where you officially enter the Scottish Highlands and gain a sense of what the rugged, mountainous landscape is really like. At the northern section of Loch Lomond, stop to see cascading waterfalls. After a good Scottish downpour, these falls really come to life and create a roaring noise that clashes off every rock and fills every part of the glen with a thunderous sound. Continue to Glencoe to see lush Caledonian Pine forests, a reminder of the ancient landscape which used to cover the majority of the Scottish mainland. Stretch your legs on a short hike along Scotland's premier walking route, the West Highland Way, as you make your way towards a small lochan (small lake). As you enter Glencoe, marvel at the grandeur of Buachaille Etive Mor, the iconic pyramid shaped mountain that forms the backdrop of the glen.

Experience the rugged and dramatic land of Glencoe. This alluring landscape captures the imagination of almost anyone who travels through it, and you’ve likely seen it before, as the beauty of Glencoe and the surrounding area has featured in many movies and TV shows. While in Glencoe, hear how the MacDonald Clan from these parts where made an example of by government soldiers in something called The Glencoe Massacre, proof that there’s also a dark side to Scotland’s turbulent history. After lunch, travel to multi-level waterfalls, which come to life after a little rainfall, found after a short walk through some woodland. Here, keep your eyes peeled for the endangered and rare red squirrels. From the roar of the waterfalls to the tranquil setting of Rannoch Moor, this area is one of the last remaining true wilderness locations left in Europe with vast peat bogs, calm lochs, and flat moorland for miles in all direction. A stunning contrast to the mountainous landscape nearby. Finally, travel south towards the lowlands, stopping for one final scenic break at Loch Lomond before heading back to Glasgow.

This was fantastic. Easy to find meeting spot. Guide was theatrical, loud, and clear (no microphone necessary). He was extremely knowledgeable and appropriately paced. Dressed in a kilt and a native to the area, he had the scoop and a fantastic way of telling Glasgow’s story. At the end of the tour, he was able to recommend an authentic pub-The Pipers Pub- for our fish & chips lunch and a draft of ale. Great way to start our day. Thank you again!

We've booked two tours from Glasgow, "Glencoe and Highlands Bus and Walking Tour" and "Standing Stones, Castles & Highlands Tour" and we've had the most amazing experience! Not only they showed us how beautiful Scotland is, but they also gave us a beautiful and enjoyable history lesson. We've stopped multiple times and enjoyed several really nice walks. We will for sure book again with them when we go back to Scotland.

This distillery while new is easy to access for those without a car. The guide’s presentation/interpretation was excellent, as were the exhibits and property itself.

Excellent tour. Mary was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. I would highly recommend this walking tour.

The experience was truly amazing. I highly recommend going here. You wont regret it.
