Commenti del cliente

This is a day I honestly will never forget. Not just because we had great weather a sunny day through Scotland and the Highlands, but because of the tour and our Guide Graham. It was amazing the stops through the Highlands and the fun facts that came with it. If we had a question it was answered and with a great story of history. I absolutely loved all I had to do that day, and eat!!! The stop in Inverness was great you had your selection of food for lunch for all. Whether it be fish and chips, to a salad, sandwich, and even haggis. It was a great way to experience another part of the culture. It was a great day and I looked forward to our second tour which went just as well.

Born and raised in Glasgow and never seem further than Loch Lomond. Today I saw my amazing country with an amazing tour guide Iain. I could listen to his stories all day. Glad I got to do the tour, on an unexpected sunny day! Would recommend this to everyone I know.

Weve done free walking tours, bike tours, cruise tours weve gone punting weve been in big groups, medium groups and small groups we have tried agri-tourism, archeological visits and the list goes on and yet our trip to the highlands with Murray stands as one of the most comprehensively informative, adventurous and fascinating experiences weve had in our lives.

I booked 1-day tour for myself, my mum and my cousin. We went to Highlands from Glasgow on 20th October 2015. Our tourguide Ian (but I not absolutely sure spelling) was just amazing. You could feel that he really liked his job and was passionate about sharing his experience. As the only one from my family who can speak English I had to translate everything to my family. Ian was evrythoughtful and even if they were not able to understand they could feel his great attitude. I will definitely recommed Rabbies company to all my friend who will come to Glasgow or Edinburgh. Thank you for this wonderful day!

After 12 hours with our tour guide, Graham, I actually felt that if I entered a 1million pound competition on knowledge of Scotland, it would be a walk in the park! He had a story and better yet! a song from his iPod for every stretch of road - even Johnny who lives in his car on the road after his divorce! I unofficially crown Graham the best OAP and DJ in rabbies

I have taken this same tour on a few occasions. This is the first time that there has been snow on the mountains. It was exceptionally beautiful. George our tour guide was funny & informative a full range of Scottish music all relating to area we passed though and accompanied by a fascinating history lesson. George has obviously done his research and homework on this area and we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. Hope to do a 3 day tour next time to Skye and I'm hoping we have George as our guide then too.

Full Itinerary (English)

Depart Glasgow at 08.00 and travel north towards the Highlands along the “bonnie, bonnie” banks of Loch Lomond. This is Scotland's largest loch and it takes its name from the mountain Ben Lomond on the eastern shore.

Crossing the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland you travel into the majestic Highlands where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically - the flat fertile plains of the Lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens. It's easy to forget that this was once thought of as a dangerous frontier fought over by the fiercely territorial Highland clans such as the MacGregors, made famous by the Highland folk hero, Rob Roy MacGregor.

Travelling north through Breadalbane (meaning the 'High Country of Scotland'), you climb towards the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor. At an altitude of over 1000ft, covered by heather and peat-bogs and dotted with dozens of lochs, it's a unique landscape. This contrasts with the spectacular mountain scenery as you pass the majestic peak of Buachaille Etive Mor (meaning 'the great shepherd of Etive') and down into Scotland's most 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. Following orders from King William, Scottish soldiers, under the leadership of Captain Robert Campbell, slaughtered 38 men, women and children of the Macdonald clan. This was especially shocking as the soldiers had been living with the people of Glencoe for 2 weeks and killed them in their own homes. Noone was ever punished for this crime, as the King himself had signed the order, but because it was murder under trust, the Highlands would never be the same again.

Beyond Glencoe you will enter the Great Glen, a deep glacial valley which follows a geological fault line. Passing through the town of Fort William you drive under Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis before arriving at Fort Augustus on the southern shore of Loch Ness.

At 23 miles long and over 700ft deep it's the largest loch by volume in Scotland and contains more water than every lake in England and Wales combined! Of course, the loch is best known for the legendary sightings of the Loch Ness Monster ("Nessie"). Fort Augustus is a pretty little town in its own right, the Caledonian Canal which links the lochs of the Great Glen dominates the town and makes a great place to relax and watch the boats sail by. You will stop here for lunch before travelling north the full length of the loch with the opportunity to take a 5 Star Jacobite boat cruise on the loch and view the ancient stronghold of Urquhart Castle.

Once one of Scotland’s largest castles, Urquhart’s remains include a tower house that commands splendid views of the famous loch and Great Glen. Urquhart witnessed considerable conflict throughout its 500 years as a medieval fortress and its history from the 13th to 17th centuries was particularly bloody. Following Edward I’s invasion, it fell into English hands and was then reclaimed and lost again. In the 14th century, it figured prominently in the Scots’ struggle for independence and came under the control of Robert the Bruce after he became King of Scots.

From Loch Ness you continue north through Inverness before travelling south through the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park. Your route takes you over the Drumochter Pass (1500ft above sea level) and past 13th century Blair Castle, ancestral home of the Duke of Atholl. We continue south via the forests of Highland Perthshire with a short refreshment stop on route, returning to Glasgow at approximately 19.45
