Itinerario

Il nostro tour “la Scozia in un giorno” che copre la bellezza maestosa del Rannoch Moor, Glencoe, il Great Glen e il mistico Loch Ness.

Il vostro tour passa per il magnifico Glencoe, scenario del massacro del clan dei MacDonald da parte dei Campbell nel 1692, e poi attraverso Fort William, l'inizio del “Great Glen” e il Caledonian Canal, che seguirete fino a Fort Augustus, situate sulle rive di Loch Ness.


Itinerary (English)

You depart Edinburgh and travel past Linlithgow palace and Stirling Castle. To the north is the National Wallace Monument, which commemorates Scotland's great hero William Wallace.

You pass close to the location where William Wallace defeated the English army in 1297, and after this take a short stop for coffee at Callander.

The scenery changes dramatically as you venture further into the Highlands. The flat plains of the lowlands transform into shimmering lochs, rugged mountains and forest-filled glens. The alluring beauty makes it easy to forget this was once a battleground of the fiercely territorial Highland clans.

You then head down to Scotland's most famous valley, Glencoe, where you’ll be mesmerised by the beautiful cliff faces and steep slopes.

After Glencoe, you enter a deep glacial valley, known as the Great Glen. Passing through the town of Fort William you travel in the shadow of Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, before arriving at Fort Augustus on the shore of Loch Ness.

At 23 miles long and over 700ft deep, Loch Ness is the largest loch by volume in Scotland. The loch is best known for the legendary Loch Ness Monster ("Nessie") and you can take the opportunity to go in search of the monster on a fantastic boat cruise. Or you can simply enjoy the beautiful scenery on the banks.

Fort Augustus boasts the Caledonian Canal, which is a great spot relax and watch the boats sail by. You stop here for nearly 1hour 30min to give you time for lunch and time to take in the scenery around Scotland's most famous loch.

From Loch Ness, you head south through the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park. Your route travels alongside Loch Laggan (the setting for the BBC series 'Monarch of the Glen'), over the Drumochter Pass and past 13th century Blair Castle.

You continue south through the forests of Perthshire and make a short refreshment stop on the way. South of Perth you drive past Loch Leven. Then it’s over the famous Forth Bridge before returning to Edinburgh.

literally a dream come true

This was my first visit to Scotland but not my last, God willing. My hosts and I were totally entertained by our guide, Grant. He was so personable and knowledgeable it made the trip fly by. I highly recommend this tour, it’s simply the best introduction to some of the beauty and history of Scotland. I had read all the great reviews and i can completely agree with everyone that this a wonderful way to tour.

FANTASTIC!

We wish we could have taken the 3 day tour. Our guide Graham was so much fun and made the day very enjoyable. Cheers,

Awesome tour thanks to Ally!

Marie Posted on 29/09/2017

We really enjoyed our tour to Glencoe, the Highlands and Loch Ness. Ally, our driver and tour guide extraordinaire, was not only very knowledgeable on Scottish history and the sites we visited, but also, had a delightful, subtle sense of humor. He turned our 12-hr tour into a very enjoyable experience with his humor and selected musical accompaniment. Ally stopped several times on the way to Loch Ness and on the way back for food and toilet breaks, and also, for photo opportunities. It was very much appreciated. We will definitely use Rabbies tours again. Hopefully, we will get a tour guide as fine as Ally ...or possibly get Ally himself again!

A great experience

My wife and I went to the Rabbies Day Tour from Glasgow on Saturday 12th August 2017 to Loch Ness,Glencoe and the Highlands. It was a very rewarding experience.The tour guide John Mc Dermott was excellent ..and the places we went were well chosen and very scenic ..He gave us lots of information on all aspects of the tour .He gave us Scottish history as we passed through the Highlands, near the Castles and viewed the Lochs.He told us about the Clans and the Kings,the past owners of the castles and stories about the Lochs.He also spoke about the culture and customs how they make a kilt and the joys of a good Scotch Whiskey.We note how he was very attentive to the lady in the wheelchair.He even made up a game to pass the time in the long stretches It was a great tour and everyone departed in good spirits

simply the best

Our driver was Bobby and yesterday we went on a day tour from Glasgow to Loch Ness etc... he made the day a memorable one for the three of us. His sense of humour, great driving and historical knowledge was excellent! Would highly recommend this tour if you only have a day to explore this part of Scotland!

Great experience

Our driver Sean was amazing and I really had a great time on this tour. Glencoe is unforgettable. I highly recommend this tour :)

Disappointing Tour

vandan hatkar Posted on 08/05/2017

Tour Date: May 3, 2017 My family from India were part of this tour. They were not satisfied with the tour at all. The driver didnt allow for boat cruise on Loch Ness as they were stuck in traffic in the morning hours. It was the main attraction that was missed. The bus halted at each spot only for 10 minutes and halted at the last point for the entire 40 minutes. As per my family, the last point had nothing to offer. If that time was utilized in cruise then it would have been worth. Also, they were not asked to enter the castle but only to have a view from outside. We feel cheated as we didnt pay only to sit and enjoy the bus ride!

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.

You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.

How much time do I get off the bus?

We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
