Private Tour of Glencoe Mountains and Massacres

What You'll Do

On this private adventure into the Scottish landscape with your driver/guide, Ian, you will immerse yourself in the stunning landscape around Glencoe, and discover the tales that haunt the snow-capped peaks and dramatic valleys, on a unique, private adventure you will never forget.

Travel south from Fort William following the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven to the village of Glencoe, overlooked by the famous Pap of Glencoe Mountain. We’ll learn the story of the 1692 massacre of Glencoe and travel through the spectacular scenery that is Glencoe, learning about the volcanoes and glaciers that shaped the landscape we see today.

Then you’ll take a walk up the steep narrow path to discover the Lost Valley where the MacDonald’s hid their cattle. Carrying on to Glen Etive you will start with a visit to the waterfalls on the River Coupall, the subject of innumerable iconic images.

Further down the glen, you’ll stop at the location of the famous scene from Skyfall and you will look for the red deer, which can often be found grazing close to the road.

On this amazing day immersed in the Scottish highland scenery, Scotland’s Big Five of red deer, red squirrel, harbour seal, otter and golden eagle can all be found. You’ll learn about the flora, history and geology of the area, and your guide Ian MacLeod is also an experienced photographer who can help you get the best from your camera.
