Day 3: Loch Lomond - Glencoe - Fort William and Ben Nevis - Whiskey distillery and a Panoramic tour of Glasgow
We’re heading even further north today, driving through the Trossachs National park enjoying breath-taking scenery as we pass Loch Lomond. Onward to Glencoe, also known as the ‘Weeping Glen’ and probably the most famous Glen in Scotland. Its no wonder Hollywood has used the area for blockbuster films such as Highlander, Brave-heart and Harry Potter to name just a few. Then to Fort William lying in the shadow of the UK’s highest mountain Ben Nevis – Fort William is the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and one of the major resorts of the Highlands. Continuing to the Nevis range we enjoy a cable car ride whilst admiring the breathtaking scenery of the surrounding mountains. After a day taking in the beauty of the highlands we visit a distillery for a tour and taste at the local Whisky Distillery before heading for Glasgow. Arriving (Rosy-cheeked) in Glasgow we embark on a panoramic tour of the City Chambers Cathedral and George Square. Later, we enjoy a lovely Indian dinner before returning to the hotel.

Day 4: Gretna Green - Lake Windermere cruise - return to London
This morning we head back south to the Lake District, stopping first at Gretna Green, where eloping couples famously married against their parents’ wishes.

As our tour nears its end we depart for London, with memories of the beautiful places visited and the new friends we’ve made.
