Your Glenfinnan tour begins in the heart of Glasgow city centre, departing the bustling streets and heading North, passing Loch Lomond and travelling through the heart of the Trossachs National Park.

We pause for refreshments in the Trossachs area, before continuing onwards to Glencoe. The Glen is arguably one of Scotland's most famous glens, and features in James Bond's 'Skyfall'; spend time here for photos and learn all about the history of the Massacre of Glencoe.

From the atmospheric Glencoe, we travel further north through the Highland town of Fort William. We pause in the area for a short coffee break and to stretch our legs, before we journey on to the Road to the Isles, or "Rathad nan Eilean". The area was run by the Clan Donald and is said to have some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, with sandy beaches, dramatic hills and unforgettable sea views; it's one not to be missed!

At the end of the road, we reach Mallaig, a scenic port on the West coast of Scotland. Mallaig comes from the old Norse, 'Mel Vik', meaning a sand dune bay. Spend time here for lunch, perhaps sample some of the famous local seafood and enjoy the beautiful sea views.

After Mallaig, our Harry Potter themed tour travels eastwards to the main attraction of the day; Glenfinnan Viaduct, famous for its many appearances in the Harry Potter movies. Surrounded by mountains on the shores of Loch Shiel, Glenfinnan Monument symbolises one of the most important events in Scottish history; the 1745 Jacobite Uprising. We spend approximately one hour at the monument, with enough time to learn the history of the Jacobites and for you to get some iconic photo of the magnificent bridge and the stunning surrounding area, steeped in Scottish history.

Not only is this location famous for the Glenfinnan Viaduct, Loch Shiel was the location of the 'Black Lake'; see if you can spot a 'grindylow' under the surface causing mischief! It's also the setting for Buckbeak's beautiful flight, scenes from the Triwizard Tournament and also the stunning loch where Hogwarts is based.

From Glenfinnan and all of its beautiful scenery and fascinating history, we begin our return journey to Glasgow, stopping along the way for refreshments before reaching Luss at Loch Lomond. We spend time at the small village, with time to take photos of the beautiful Loch before returning to Glasgow, where our 1-day Glenfinnan tour comes to an end.

Visiting the Highlands, January 2024
“This trip was nothing short of spectacular. Our guide, Davie, kept us entertained for 12 hours straight with his vast knowledge, quirky humour, and charmingly broad Glasgow accent. No better man to tour the highlands with in our minds! Whether you’re a Harry Potter fan or not, there is so much to soak in on this journey that pulls at your human tide. Davie gave us running commentary on the various landmarks and areas that we passed through, providing excellent insight into the important history present in each, all while operating the bus with impressive precision. Safety was never a concern. We can’t recommend this tour enough. If you’re considering it, pay no mind to any negative reviews. It is well worth the money and then some - a small price to pay for the best day ever.”
