Leave Glasgow and head north towards the Highlands along the “bonnie, bonnie” banks of Loch Lomond. It is Scotland's largest loch and it takes its name from the mountain Ben Lomond on the eastern shore.
You will cross the Highland boundary fault line and see the landscape change dramatically; the flat fertile plains of the lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens.
Pass through Breadalbane, the high country of Scotland and head for the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor. At an altitude of over 1000ft, covered by heather and peat-bogs and dotted with dozens of lochs, the area offers spectacular views and a unique landscape.
See the spectacular mountain scenery as you pass the majestic peak of Buachaille Etive Mor and drive down into Scotland's famous valley, Glencoe. Stunningly beautiful, with its dramatic cliff faces and steep slopes, Glencoe is infamous as the site of the Glencoe massacre in 1692.
Next, enter the Great Glen, a deep glacial valley which follows a geological fault line. Passing through the town of Fort William, drive past Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis before arriving at Fort Augustus on the southern shore of Loch Ness. The Loch is best known for the mythology surrounding the Loch Ness Monster, Nessie.
After that, you will stop for lunch(at your own expense) in Fort Augustus or enjoy a 5 Star Jacobite boat cruise(at your own expense) on the loch to appreciate the beautiful views from the water and view one of Scotland’s largest castles, Urquhart.
Hop back on your coach and continue on through the city of Inverness to the Cairngorms National Park. Your route will take you over the Drumochter Pass (1500ft above sea level) and past the 13th century Blair Castle, ancestral home of the Duke of Atholl.
Head south through the forests of Perthshire, famous as Macbeth country, and past Perth the medieval capital of Scotland. You will stop for refreshment at Pitlochry, nestled amongst the mountains of Perthshire.
The tour ends at the starting point. You will arrive in Glasgow at around 7:45pm.

Working in a travel company, it’s a delight to see how the world is taking little steps to normalcy again. It’s like winning a war that no one was prepared to fight, yet emerged victorious, renewing hopes of a world that heals itself with optimism.
