Full description

Enjoy a day tour exploring the Port of Mallaig, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, and reach Glenfinnan Viaduct right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express) crossing the tall bridge. Depart Glasgow and travel north, stopping for a coffee and refreshments at a small highland village. Traveling onwards, reach Glencoe, known to many as the location for the Massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. Take photos of this beautiful area whilst you learn about its turbulent past. After Glencoe, travel further north to Fort William. Stop for refreshments and perhaps a bite to eat before journeying down the Road to the Isles. Learn about the history of the area as you approach Mallaig, where you will spend time enjoying lunch and its sea views. From Mallaig, travel eastwards to the main attraction, Glenfinnan. Arrive to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter Films) cross the bridge. Enjoy the iconic view, known as the setting for many Harry Potter scenes, including Loch Shiel. From Glenfinnan, travel southwards, stopping for refreshments before reaching Luss for Loch Lomond. Spend time here to enjoy the beautiful lochside views before returning to Glasgow.

Our tour guide is Stewart, nice gentleman with strong and cute scottish accent, the time he gave us in the places are always enough. And we actually stopped by more places, lake and village(Luss) than I expected from the information. The whole journey is so amazing and unforgettable. Thank you Stewart and getyourguide! Ps. Stewart recommended a viewpoint in Gleffinnan that can see both viaduct and loch shiel.

Stewart our driver and tour guide was great very knowledgeable, lots of information as we went about and good choice of music to accompany his stories especially Runrig , weather wasn’t the best but that also brings out another side to the incredible Scottish scenery , We had a few friends from Sussex with us , 1 of them in Scotland for the first time but I’m pretty sure they’ll be back and I’ll definitely be back I’m very interested in your Skye tour so hopefully see you again very soon , thanks all for a very memorable day it was well worth it and thanks again to Stewart he made the whole day with his stories ( factual or otherwise )

The guide was wonderful :) The tour was excellent. Ideally each place should take half day to cover except Glencoe. If you're looking for a quick crash for up North or the highlands this one's a quick tour. You would want to spend more time at Fort Williams and Mallaig!
