Our departure point on the Royal Mile is where the winter edition of our Glenfinnan, Glencoe, and Fort William Adventure begins in the center of Edinburgh.

Start your journey north into the rugged Scottish Highlands after leaving Edinburgh's bustling streets and passing some of the city's most famous landmarks, such as Edinburgh Castle. Before moving on to Glencoe, we stop for refreshments at Callander, the entrance to the Highlands.

The well-known, dramatic Glen appears in a number of films, including Skyfall, which starred James Bond. It also serves as the setting for a few scenes in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. These scenes are ideal for getting you in the mood to visit the well-known "Harry Potter Bridge," which you will see later on in the tour.

We stop here for pictures and to learn everything we can about Glencoe's past, including about the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald family.

We continue our journey along the shores of Loch Linnhe from the atmospheric Glencoe to the Highland town of Fort William, which is perched at the base of Britain's tallest mountain, Ben Nevis.

Before continuing on to the Glenfinnan Viaduct, we will make a pit stop here so that you can stretch your legs and take a quick lunch break.

The Glenfinnan Viaduct, which is situated on the stunning shores of Loch Shiel and is surrounded by mountains, is arguably best known for its appearances in Harry Potter.

Not only was Loch Sheil the site of the "Black Lake," but it is also well-known for the Jacobite Steam Train—not to be confused with the Hogwarts Express.

Determine whether a "grindylow" lurking beneath the surface is causing trouble! Buckbeak's beautiful flight, scenes from the Triwizard Tournament, and the stunning loch where Hogwarts is located all take place there.

Before going to the nearby Glenfinnan Monument, which serves as a symbol for one of the most significant events in Scottish history, we take in the viaduct and a photo opportunity; the Jacobite revolt of 1745.

We leave Glenfinnan and begin our journey back to Edinburgh, stopping for refreshments in the small village of Pitlochry along the way.

Before we return to Edinburgh, where our Glenfinnan, Glencoe, and Fort William Adventure will come to an end, take some time to stretch your legs and grab a quick bite to eat.

It was incredible but we need it more time at Glenfinnan to see the Jocobite train. Our guide was very explicit about Scotland history, very entertaining. Thank you again!!

We truly loved being driven and guided by Nestor! He is such a treasure trove of knowledge about the geography, history of Scotland, all the places we visited and above all, was extremely helpful and possesses a great sense of humor! Made our entire experience a beautiful and truly memorable one, visiting some of the most wonderful sights in Scotland!

It was amazing, from beginning to end the sights were breathtaking and it almost felt like the weather was on our side because every time we stopped for pictures the sky would clear. Definitely recommend it! The tour guide was also excellent and told us all the story behind what we were seeing. I loved learning a bit more about Scotland’s history

This was a fun tour and great if you don’t have much time to fully visit the highlands. I would have liked more time at the viaduct and memorial, and at Glencoe, and less time at the shops/eating areas where there wasn’t much to do other than buy food or souvenirs.

The trip was super fun and the scenery was beautiful but be aware that you will not be able to see the train on the viaduct we hat to depart 20 minutes bevor it arrived also the stop at the viaduct was only one hour so there was not enough time for us so see the loch on which Dumbledore is laid to rest which is on the opposite side of the parking lot
