5 Day Private Guided Tour Itinerary
Day 1: Arrival - Stirling Castle - Glencoe - Fort William
Designed with care to help you experience some of Scotland’s best sights and destinations in a short 5-day spell, this tour itinerary will give you a taste of what makes our wee country such a unique and enchanting land to visit. The following itinerary is just a guideline; a guideline intended to inspire you to dream of your ideal vacation to Scotland before getting in touch to create a personalized itinerary that is perfectly suited to you and your group.
Your private 5-day tour of Scotland starts as your driver-guide collects you at a destination of your choice in Glasgow or Edinburgh, before chauffeuring you through central Scotland to one of the country’s most historically-significant and famous buildings: Stirling Castle.
Perched atop Castle Hill - a dramatic geoformation - Stirling Castle is protected on all sides by vast steer cliffs which made the site an attractive strategic military base during Scotland’s turbulent history. On your tour of the Castle, you’ll hear its tales and mysteries first-hand with your private guide; including characters such as Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Once your group has explored the Castle, your driver-guide will whisk you off to the West Coast of Scotland en route to the incredible Glencoe Mountain Range. Here, we’ll stop for some pictures of the famous ‘Three Sisters’ and a short hike depending on the activity level of your group, before heading to the delightful town of Fort William.
If we’ve still got time in the day, you might want to include a visit to Ben Nevis - the highest mountain in the UK - where you can enjoy a gondola ride up the side of the mountain and toast to your first day in Scotland with one of the most beautiful backdrops in the world before your driver-guide returns you to your accommodation for the night ahead of a busy second day.
