Full description

Enjoy a guided day trip from Glasgow by bus exploring the Port of Mallaig, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, and reach Glenfinnan Viaduct right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express) crossing the tall bridge. Depart Glasgow and travel north, stopping for a coffee and refreshments at a small highland village. Traveling onwards, reach Glencoe, known to many as the location for the Massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. Take photos of this beautiful area whilst you learn about its turbulent past. After Glencoe, travel further north to Fort William. Stop for refreshments and perhaps a bite to eat before journeying down the Road to the Isles. Learn about the history of the area as you approach Mallaig, where you will spend time enjoying lunch and its sea views. From Mallaig, travel eastwards to the main attraction, Glenfinnan. Arrive to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter Films) cross the bridge. Enjoy the iconic view, known as the setting for many Harry Potter scenes, including Loch Shiel. From Glenfinnan, travel southwards, stopping for refreshments before reaching Luss for Loch Lomond. Spend time here to enjoy the beautiful lochside views before returning to Glasgow.

I was amazing time in Glencoe, Glenfinan Viaduct, and Loch Lomond. There are many stop that guide give for taking a photo. It is absolutely worth your money without any other entrance fee. The guide provide many knowledge as well. I would recommend this trip. :)

Great trip, timing was spot on for each stop. Driver kept us informed as we went along & even though the train was late back from Mallaig we were allowed extra time to get those all important photos at Glenfinnan. For me the tour was very good, toilet stops plentiful & the run home more direct & less stops. Makes sense really. Would highly recommend!

It was a great experience touring the highlands, with sufficient time at each stop for photo taking. The guide (I couldn't get his name) was very knowledgeable and communicates well too. There was a little surprise stop that he suggested and brought us to which made this trip even more worthwhile.
