We collect you from your hotel at 8am to start your Glencoe Tour. This Lochs and Glens (Lakes and Valleys) tour takes us through some of Scotland’s most picturesque landscape. As we head North West along the fabled A85 and A82, we visit no less than 10 Lochs.
As we climb into the mountains we turn off the main tourist route and visit Glen Etive, with a hope of catching sight of some Red Deer. This lesser travelled part of the country is where James Bond-Skyfall, Harry Potter, Outlaw King and Mary Queen of Scots were filmed. This magnificent landscape of extinct volcanoes, carved and reshaped by glaciers, is fantastic to explore. Etive Mor is an extinct super volcano standing at the gateway to Glen Etive which came 2nd place in a poll by Tripadvisor of the “top 10 places to see before you die” . Unlike most tour companies who simply pass through Glencoe, we spend several hours exploring this beautiful part of the country, so you can fully immerse yourself in the surroundings. We stop regularly to make sure you take home fantastic photographs of this rugged and majestic landscape.
We then stop at the Three Sisters of Glencoe. Considered by most Scot’s to be the heart of the Highlands. This area has a turbulent history, notably the massacre of Glencoe in 1692 when 38 men of Clan Macdonald were slain by government troops.
Finally,, we make our way back South crossing through Highland Perthshire and some picturesque villages, including St Fillans and Comrie. We then return you to your hotel in Edinburgh.
