Glasgow Free Walking Tour
Everyday at 10:30
If you want to immerse yourself in Scottish culture and scenery but have a limited time, this is the perfect tour for you! This trip from Edinburgh and Glasgow covers the Highlands, Loch Lomond, Loch Ness and the famous Hogwarts Express from Harry Potter, all in 2 days!
At the beginning of your adventure, you'll get to wander around the beautiful Loch Lomond, probably one of the most beautiful lakes in Scotland, and the wild Trossachs National Park. That incredible stop will be followed up by the Glen Coe and the Great Glen, two incredible valleys in the Scottish Highlands. The guide will then take you to admire UK's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and find a nice spot to have lunch.
The journey will continue to Glenfinnan Viaduct, world-famous thanks to the Harry Potter films, which feature the iconic Hogwart Express passing through the bridge. In the summer months, you may catch a glimpse of the steam-train crossing the viaduct, and you can imagine Harry, Ron and Hermione on their way to magic school.
Glenfinnan is also home to the impressive and spectacular Highland scenery at the head of Loch Shiel. This marvellous location also appears in the Harry Potter films, as the place where Hogwarts is located.
On the second day, we'll visit Loch Ness, with the option of hiring a boat cruise or entry Urquhart Castle. After that, you will head to and learn the history of Culloden, the last stand where the Jacobites fought the British forces. Then we'll travel south and enjoy the stunning scenery as we pass through the unique wilderness of the Cairngorms, Scotland's largest National Park.

Great day in the Highlands! It was an amazing day out, great driver Steve B. Amazing scenery and a great opportunity to visit Loch Ness
Trip was great - Rob, Robert, don’t-call-me-Bobby, was an excellent host: patient, kind, thoughtful and funny. Great driver and wonderful historian.
Amazing and fun trip, and Robert absolutely rocks as a tour guide. Had the best tour I've had yet. Time was a constraint, but we managed to see most places and had Robert who kept us entertained and in great spirits all throughout the way. Would definitely recommend.
