Glasgow Free Walking Tour
Everyday at 10:30
Want to see the best of Scotland's Highlands in one day? This tour is for you then! Look for Nessie, Highland cows and some beautiful landscapes. You will depart from the Old Town of Edinburgh to travel north towards the heart of Scotland. Get ready for the adventure!
Want to join us for the adventure? Get on a medium size luxury coach to meet your guide and experience the best of Scotland. Get to see the most beautiful areas in the Highlands while an expert guide shows you Scottish history and traditions. As soon as you leave Edinburgh, you'll get to see the Forth Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage and masterpiece of Victorian engineering.
The trip will continue to Perth, the former Scottish capital full of history and charm. Your first stop will be in the small Highland town of Pitlochry, which could not be in a better location, being one of the gateways to the Highlands.
After Pitlochry, the tour will arrive at Cairngorms National Park, the largest National Park in Scotland and a travellers' favourite. Its spectacular scenery and wilderness have convinced the National Geographic Traveller Magazine to consider it one of the top 20 places in the whole world!
We will continue north and drive through Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, just before reaching Loch Ness. You will have the opportunity to take a cruise in the famous lake and visit Urquhart Castle*. After you have experienced Loch Ness, we will start our way back, but luckily, there are still plenty of things to see!
We make through the Great Glen towards the Commando Memorial, erected to the remembrance of the Royal Marine Commandos who trained there during WWII. We will even have time to take a quick photo of Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain.
After that, you will feel like James Bond in Skyfall or Harry Potter when passing through the incredible valley of Glen Coe. You will have a little bit of time to take some photos, but you better get ready to hear the horrible things that happened here to the Clan MacDonald will follow up.
Finally, we will go through Stirling and its beautiful castle, where you will hear the stories of the Independence Wars between England and Scotland, where William Wallace and Robert The Bruce played a major role.
Note: The Loch Ness cruise and entrance to Urquhart Castle are not included on the tour. The price of both is £25 per person.

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.
