Event location: Timberbush Tours. Ongoing event.
Our two day tour from Glasgow enjoys two days in the North West Highlands: Experience a dramatic landscape rich in history and natural beauty and enjoy an overnight stay in the Highland town of Fort William.
Leaving Glasgow we head north-east via Stirling, catching a glimpse of its famous and majestic Castle. We visit the Wallace Monument, the towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace, and afterwards pass Doune Castle, location for the film 'Monty Python & the Holy Grail'. After lunch, time permitting, we make a brief visit to Rob Roy's Grave and then to the pretty village of Killin for photos.
We continue our journey north via Tyndrum across the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, and then onwards to Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan, for a brief walk and photos. We then continue to the stunning Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous by the Harry Potter films, for a photo opportunity (Apr-Oct). Our final stop is the Highland town of Fort William, where we check into our accommodation.
After breakfast your 2 day tour from Glasgow heads north into The Great Glen, a geographical fault line characterised by a chain of impressive lochs, including Loch Ness. We enjoy a photo stop at Glen Garry, before arriving at Eilean Donan Castle (interior closed in winter) for an optional visit, or to explore the castle and its beautiful setting.
Our journey continues with a stop for lunch and views of Loch Ness in the pretty lochside village of Fort Augustus. After lunch we start our return journey, enjoying a photo stop to admire Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain at 1,344 metres. Then we travel via The Hermitage stopping for a gentle forest walk in idyllic Scottish woodland, before crossing the Forth Bridge, back to Edinburgh. The 2 day tour terminates in Edinburgh.
If continuing to Glasgow, your guide will take you to Edinburgh Waverley railway station for the 50 minute journey by train, courtesy of Timberbush.
