Scottish Highland Tours – Discover Fort William & Glenfinnan
Our first visit on this Highland Day Tour has to be Glen Nevis, nestling beneath Britains highest mountain, Ben Nevis.
Glen Nevis is one of the finest, and scenic glens in the Highlands, surrounded by massive slopes on all sides, and is where many blockbuster movies, including Braveheart, Rob Roy, Harry Potter, and Highlander, have been made.
Returning from Glen Nevis, we visit our very own 13th century Inverlochy Castle, complete with its impressive four towers and ramparts, on the way to the village of Spean Bridge.
Just beyond the village stands the evocative Commando Monument, with magnificent panoramic views of the Ben Nevis Mountain range.
We make our way across the Great Glen to Clan Cameron land – Achnacarry, the hiding places of Bonnie Prince Charlie and Clan rebels, Second World War Commando training country – you can visit the museum or just be amazed at the breathtaking scenery, as we touch Loch Arkaig and Loch Lochy. We then follow the Caledonian Canal onto, the Road to the Isles to historic Glenfinnan, and Loch Shiel.
We return by single-track road, around Loch Linnhe for a panoramic view of Ben Nevis and Fort William, boarding the car ferry at Corran and Ardgour to travel back home.
This tour has options:
- To include Glencoe and Kinlochleven, add one and a half hours.
- If you want to visit the Ben Nevis Distillery, advanced booking is required.
