While in Scotland, we decided to book a day trip to Loch Ness, travelling via Glen Coe and through the beautiful scotish highlands. This tour is said to be the biggest tour done in the space of 12 hours.
We booked our tour through Highland experience tours for a very reasonable 45£ per person. I highly recommend this! The trip departs from the high street at 8am daily and arrived back between 730-8pm.
At first, we were a little dissapointed with the weather but decided to stay positive and just let the day pan out.
The drive to Glen Coe was truely spectacular and worth the 45£ alone.
The tour has full commentary, allowing you to hear hours of relevants scotish history.
Glen Coe is perhaps Scotland’s most famous and most scenic glen. Even in the pouring rain, you can see how it has gained that reputation.
Due to the rain, we were told our cruise had been cancelled and we had to change our stops destination. We headed to the other end of the Loch where we were able to get a smaller cruise along some of the loch.
The Loch Ness is a large, deep, freshwater loch in the Scottish Highlands extending for approximately 23 miles (37 km) southwest of Inverness
Its deepest point is 755 ft, which apparently is the height of 5 statues of liberty placed ontop of one another.
Despite the dark colouring of the water, the Loch is infact perfectly clean.
even though we were told that we were unable to stop at the castle, the sun came out for just enough time for us to squeeze in a small stop and photo opportunity. I have to admit, I was dissapointed when originally told we wouldn’t see the castle, so this was a true surprise and highlight.
Just in case some of us hadn’t seen snow, our your guide pulled over while driving through the highlands….
so we could get these beautiful shots …
All in all, a truely incredible day.
