Jacobites and Scottish Highlands Day Tour from Glasgow

Slainte Scotland Tours

Select Option


Join us on this day trip from Glasgow for a full day of sightseeing in the Scottish Highlands. You'll see Culloden Battlefield, The Highland Folk Museum, 4000-year-old standing stones at the Clava Cairns and more. Unlike some other Highlands tours, we try and spend a little more time at a location, this does mean not seeing all that the Scottish Highlands has to offer in a day, but you will leave the tour feeling enriched by our unique culture, history and customs.

We ensure that you have a fun-filled trip all the while learning about the 1745 Jacobite Uprising and Scottish Highland Culture. We have experienced guides who can tell you stories and show you some hidden gems often missed.

This tour would make a great addition to any Outlander Fan visiting Scotland as well.
