Full description
Day 1 Departing from Glasgow, drive to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. On the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond sits your first stop, the charming village of Luss. Take in views of lochs, waterfalls, and Munros on your way to Rannoch Moor and Glencoe. There will be time for lunch there. Your Highland road trip then continues through Fort William and onward to the spectacular views of Glenfinnan and Loch Shiel. Departing Glenfinnan, your tour will travel north and over the bridge to Skye. You will stay overnight either in the village of Kyleakin or Broadford. Day 2 With a full day to explore the amazing Isle of Skye, your driver-guide will ensure you see the best of the island whatever the weather. You cannot miss Skye’s mountain range, the Black Cuillins. The clear, cool waters of the Fairy Pools lie near their foot in Glenbrittle. You will have time to hike to the pools and take photos of the scenery too. Your lunch stop will be in Skye’s main town of Portree, before traveling to the spectacular geological wonders of the Trotternish Peninsula. Visit the Quiraing, an iconic geological landslip. Then continue to a photo stop at the magnificent Mealt Waterfall and Kilt Rock, a spectacular 90-meter-tall column of basalt that appears to resemble Scotland's national tartan dress. On your return, your tour will also stop for photos at the Old Man of Storr, a pinnacle of rock created by a massive ancient landslide. Day 3 Your final day will start with a photo stop at Eilean Donan, Scotland’s most iconic fortress. You will then go off the beaten track to visit Glenelg viewpoint for amazing views over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail. Next, drive to Fort Augustus at the southern tip of Loch Ness, where there will be time for lunch and a stroll beside one of the world’s great waterways. Or you might like to hop on a one-hour ‘monster spotting' cruise. Then it’s back to dry land and a road trip through the Grampian Mountains. You will have the opportunity to visit a whisky distillery for a dram if you have not already visited a distillery on Skye. Your final refreshment stop will be in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry. You will then return to Glasgow via Edinburgh and the Queensferry Crossing. Admire the Firth of Forth’s oldest crossing the Forth Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Please note, if there are no passengers booked to return to Edinburgh, the return to Glasgow will take you past Stirling Castle.

I had a very nice time on this tour. Jeff is a great guide, very attentive to the guests and takes us to the best spots. I strongly recommend it, especially if you are by yourself or don't wanna drive in the highlands and skye.
