Our exclusive group tour to Loch Ness and the Highlands is a fantastic choice for groups and families of all sizes. Enjoy exploring some of the most dramatic scenery of the Scottish Highlands. Our Loch Ness private group tour will visit Glencoe and offers options for a 'Loch Ness by Jacobite' cruise and visit to Urquhart Castle.

From Glasgow your exclusive Loch Ness group tour will travel north, before making a refreshment stop on the shores of Loch Lomond. Travelling the length of the loch, we climb up into the Highlands, over the unique, dramatic landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount to majestic Glencoe, one of Scotland's most haunting glens, site of 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan.

Continuing via Loch Linnhe, our private group tour will stop in Fort William area for lunch then continue into the natural beauty of the Great Glen as we pass beneath Britain's highest mountain. Travelling on, we admire the Caledonian Canal, and the pretty village of Fort Augustus, enjoying spectacular views of Loch Ness, as we drive along the shoreline to Urquhart Castle.

Loch Ness, 24 miles long and 700 feet deep is most famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, affectionately known as Nessie. Spend approximately 2 hours at Loch Ness, where you can choose to take a wonderful 5 star 'Loch Ness by Jacobite' cruise and explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle and its modern visitor centre.

Passing through Inverness, Capital of the Highlands, our Loch Ness private group tour will start its return for home, crossing the Grampian Mountains and the woodland scenery of Perthshire, including the Forest of Atholl, with an evening refreshment stop at the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, en route back to Glasgow where our Loch Ness private group tour ends .
