Fort William & Glen Coe Landmarks Tour
This half-day tour (approx. 5 hours) will show you around the Fort William & Glen Coe landmarks. The tour will start with a visit to Glenfinnan for the famous 'Harry Potter' viaduct (in time to see the Jacobite steam train pass!) and the Bonny Price Charlie monument. On the way back to Fort William we will pass the locks at Neptune's Staircase and the Old Inverlochy Castle. If the weather is good you will be able to see spectacular views of Ben Nevis and the Nevis mountain range along the way. Then we continue our journey to Glen Coe.
Beautiful Glen Coe is a must-see! On the way to Glen Coe we will visit Inchree Waterfall. At the car park near the waterfall a special viewing screen has been erected from where it's possible to see red squirrels. We will then continue to Ballachulish to have a look at the slate quarry and enjoy the view over Loch Leven to the pap of Glencoe. In Glencoe Village we will visit Glencoe Lochan and The Massacre Monument before we follow the old road along the north bank of the river until we meet with the A82 again. We will drive past the famous three sisters of Glen Coe until we reach Glen Etive. Glen Etive has become famous for the scenes being filmed there for the James Bond film 'Skyfall'. A semi-tame group of red deer often hangs around at The King's House Hotel, so this is an opportunity to see red deer up close. Finally we cross over to Glencoe Ski Centre where you have the iconic view of Black Rock Cottage with the Buachaille Etive Mor in the background. We will return via Kinlochleven where there are some superb views back towards Glencoe.
The tour departs from Fort William and the starting time is flexible. The tour can be arranged in such a way that, if you wish to, you can see the Jacobite steam train go over the Glenfinnan viaduct.
