The Basics

Soak up Glencoe’s stunning scenery during a drive along the A82 road, which cuts through the glen. More active travelers may want to explore on foot, taking advantage of the area’s excellent hiking. Organized day and multi-day tours from Edinburgh and Glasgow often go through Glencoe, passing by locations featured in films such asSkyfall,Braveheart, and the Harry Potter series, as well as other notable beauty spots. Some organized tours stop for photos or even embark on guided walks in the scenic valley before continuing to other destinations in the Scottish Highlands such as Fort William, Ben Nevis, and Loch Ness.

Great day trip! We've explored a lot of good views in the highlands and the tour guide is very accommodating. A must-do! (We're lucky that the weather is perfect as well.)

Good tour. Just enough group size. Our tour guide was very informative from places to movies and was funny, +A for his cheesy jokes too. My only regret is the rainy and foggy weather.

An absolutely perfect tour for those who want to take in the highlights of the Highlands. We got enough time at Loch Ness to do the cruise and have a nice lunch. The guide was great, gave lots of o retesting information, was very funny and also played some great music.

Scottish Highlands, Loch Ness and Glen Coe Day Trip from Edinburgh
Our guide was wonderful he looked after us and was very clear on instructions. Plus: amazing views, safe driving, stories, guide, good number of toilet breaks, slowing down next to attractions, pointing at things to take photos of, guide was very skilled at driving and I suffer from motion sickness yet due to his driving it wasn’t bad- if you have it take a pill due to the reasons below, there’s stops at the Loch Ness where amazing food is sold in the restaurant above the hotel and you have to try the ice creams by the entrance! If you put mobile phone flat on the window and take photos you won’t be able to see window reflections, Highlands are breathtaking and so worth the journey, you have to be on time back in the bus as guide have limit on driving time and it is very strict however he is clear on the break times and inform in advance about everything. It’s plus and minus that the trip is 80% in the bus and around 20 you are out and seeing things, stops are around every 1.5 hours: - stop with highland cattle with gift shop and toilets - 10 min - stop for 10min at the top of the mountain for amazing view of the lake (no toilets) - Glen Coe - amazing views right in the middle of high mountains - 10 min (no toilets) - Fort William - 45 min break there’s Morrison’s, Lidl, McDonalds not far and toilets. Nice place by the harbour to eat your lunch. If you’re lucky like us you’ll see a steam train - commando Memorial - beautiful place with stunning tribute to the fallen soldiers, very touching - 10 min break (no toilets) - Loch Ness - you can either take a boat tour or enjoy climb for panoramic views of the lake and great food at the restaurant- 1hour 40 min break (toilets) - one more stop on the way for toilet (make sure to take 50p coin to use the toilet) and there’s little shop in the corner where you can treat yourself to ice cream or buy something to drink - 10 min break Minus: no AC it is just slightly blowing the air therefor all of us were boiling insight, prone to car sickness as temperature was high inside the car, going quite fast and due to the roads turns it is easy to get sick, it is 12 hours tour but you have enough little and big breaks to stretch your legs, if you are bigger person you may struggle as seats are narrow and one of the passengers was struggling to put a seatbelt on, you travelling in a group of around 30 people and unfortunately we were around group of 4 who couldn’t stay quiet and show respect to the guide and was very loud and talking about inappropriate things in front of the kids. Thankfully one of the ladies speak up and told them to stop so keep in mind that you may end up with an idiots like that. I’ve listed all of the breaks and although it is a very long day it is worth it.

Scottish Highlands, Loch Ness and Glen Coe Day Trip from Edinburgh
It was great trip for us. Our tour guide was Allen (Highland Experience Tour), She was amazing story teller, because of her only we enjoyed our trip more than we expected. Scotland in itself is very beautiful words cannot capture it's beauty. To list of our favourite moment I would say drive through Glencoe Valley, Loch Ness was pretty amazing. We learned various things about Scotland all credit to Allen. Few things went well for us because of weather, there was not single drop of rain in our trip.

When to Get There

Each season in Glencoe brings its own majesty. Summers are best for hikers, with long days, mild weather, and carpets of purple heather. Spring brings bluebells and rhododendrons, autumn yields a palette of fiery rust, and winter is good for skiing. Summers are peak tourist season, but with so much space, Glencoe never feels overrun. That said, get there in early morning to avoid the midday rush.

Getting Active in Glencoe

Glencoe offers a wealth of activities for visitors. Search for red squirrels, deer, and golden eagles; admire the rushing Glencoe Gorge Waterfall; tackle a Via Ferrata climbing route; or summit a Munro (a mountain over 3,000 feet/914 meters). Lots of gentler hiking trails can be found too, such as the woodland walk to Signal Rock. Glencoe Mountain Resort has a 12-minute chairlift that carries sightseers up to a height of 2,200 feet (670 meters).
