The tour will stop for refreshments in Tyndrum, in the Trossachs area, before continuing onwards to Glencoe. The Glen is arguably one of Scotland’s most famous glens. You may recognise it from several famous movies and tv shows. It features in James Bonds’ Skyfall, as well as in scenes from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Outlander.
From the atmospheric and haunting Glencoe, your journey continues onwards to the Glenfinnan Viaduct, also known to many as the “Harry Potter Bridge”.
The Glenfinnan Viaduct was arguably made most famous from its scenes in the Harry Potter films, and is surrounded by mountains on the shores of the stunning Loch Shiel. Not only is this location famous for the Jacobite Steam Train (aka. The Hogwarts’ Express), Loch Shiel was the location of the ‘Black Lake’. See if you can spot a ‘grindylow’ under the surface causing mischief! It’s also the setting for Buckbeak’s beautiful flight, scenes from the Triwizard Tournament, and the stunning Loch on which Hogwarts sits.
As you take in the viaduct, there is a brilliant photo opportunity before a visit to the nearby Glenfinnan Monument, which symbolises one of the most important events in Scottish history; the 1745 Jacobite Uprising.
From Glenfinnan, the tour continues along the banks of Loch Linnhe to the Highland town of Fort William, which sits at the foot of Britain’s tallest mountain – Ben Nevis. During a stop here, you will have plenty of time to stretch your legs and have a lunch break.
Then on your return journey to Glasgow, you will pass Loch Lomond for a photo and coffee break, before arriving back in the city centre for an early evening.
This tour is available 30th of October 2023 to 29th of April 2024.
