Full description
Depart Edinburgh and travel northwest, stopping for a coffee and refreshments at a small highland village. Traveling onwards, reach Glencoe, known to many as the location for the Massacre of the MacDonald clan in 1692. Take photos of this beautiful area whilst you learn about its turbulent past. After Glencoe, travel further north to Fort William. Stop for refreshments and perhaps a bite to eat before journeying down the Road to the Isles. Learn about the history of the area as you approach Mallaig, where you will spend time enjoying lunch and its sea views. From Mallaig, travel eastwards to the main attraction, Glenfinnan. Arrive right on time to see the Jacobite Steam Train (also known as the Hogwarts Express in the Harry Potter Films) cross the bridge. Not only will you enjoy this iconic view, but the site is also known as the setting for many Harry Potter scenes, including Loch Shiel. From Glenfinnan, travel southwards, stopping for refreshments at the small village of Pitlochry before returning to Edinburgh, where your tour ends.

This experience was just brilliant and I am so happy I decided to book this tour!! At first a full day of travelling around the Highlands seemed a bit daunting but it was so informative and entertaining, that time flew by! In the future, I would love to book a longer tour with Timberbush Tours. Our guide was the incredibly knowledgeable Andrew T. Andrew was fantastic guide (and also a very smooth driver) and his stories gave the tour a personal touch. We learned so much and I genuinely feel like my trip to Scotland was enriched by this experience. Thank you Andrew T, we can’t wait to return!

My wife and I went on the Mallaig and glenfinnan tour. Paul our guide/driver was fantastic, he was knowledgable about the whole area. He made time at the start and during to get to know as many of the passenger as possible. We would definitely recommend to everyone and would definitely use them ourselves again 5/5

The tour guides were informative and easy going. I’d say about 70% of the tour was spent on the bus as the site seeing spots were quite far. It was over 300 miles return trip and just under an hour was spent at the Glenfinnan viaduct. I wish more time was spent their instead of going to Mallaig but nonetheless, the scenery was beautiful. Comfortable seating in bus and plenty of toilet/ coffee stops.
