Plan for the Day:

We start our day driving north past Loch Lomond before getting coffee at the Green Welly stop at Tyndrum.

We'll then start discussing the history of Scotland before stopping in Glencoe at the famous Three Sisters peaks. Well get off the bus and go for a short hike into the glen to hear the story of what happened here and the ramifications it had for Scotland and it's future.

We'll travel to Glencoe Village for a toilet break before heading up towards Glenfinnan for a stop at the famous viaduct and loch. It's wonderful here. Most of you will just get a branch from a tree and pretend it's a wand and do Harry Potter poses. Try and take some time to look at the view as well though.

We'll finish up having a late lunch in the town of Fort William. Those of you who would rather do some touristy things then we have plenty to suggest while we are there but there is also coffee, beer and more to keep you amused before we head home.

Useful information:

Refund Policy: Refunds can only be issued before 1200 noon on Wednesday of the week of the tour. After this date and time, no more refunds can be issued for any reason (including, but not limited to: sickness, sleeping in, hangover, spending too long taking selfies in the morning and missing the departure time). Refunds can only be issued using the same method you used to pay.

Further Information: We send an email to the address you signed up with (please ensure you use the correct email) on the Wednesday or Thursday before the tour. This includes a summary of everything you are expected to know for the tour itself.

Lunch Breaks and Toilets Stops: We always try to include a lunch break on every tour. This is not always possible so ensure you bring at least a snack with you in case it’s a little late in the day when we break. We always include as many toilet stops as possible on the day. Not every coach has a usable toilet on board.

Walking and Hiking: Nearly every tour includes a lot of walking. Please ensure you wear shoes you are comfortable to walk a lot in. Some tours include hiking. This is always optional but will take up most of the guiding experience so if you do something else you will not be with the guide for the day.

Maps and Contact Information: Every Coach Day Trip includes a fun, hand drawn map with all the contact information and social media links that you will need on the tour.

Departure Point: We only offer one departure point. This is to ensure we spend the maximum amount of time travelling. We have chosen a point that is roughly central for all four universities and all the colleges in Glasgow. It is near one of the train stations, the bus station and two Subway stations. You can also get to and from it with a Glasgow Taxi or Uber.

Travel on a Sunday to Departure Point: Please remember that on Sunday mornings the Subway does not open early and you may have to consider walking. If you have any worries about getting to the departure point, please get in touch.

Data Protection and Storage: Student Tours Scotland only uses details that you enter on the sign up with Eventbrite. Your email will be used to send you a maximum of three follow on emails (all issued at the same time) for future tours, trip advisor link and a summary of the tour. We do not operate a mailing list and do not store your details or sell them onto third parties. Please check with Eventbrite for their own policy.

Travel with Children: Our tours are not necessarily well catered for children. If you are planning on bringing any family with you you are highly advised to get in touch before booking. We can best advise if this is a good idea or not based on your requirements. We cannot hold any part of the tour for any one individual but we may be able to offer you a plan for doing the tour by yourself or using another operator.

Travel for those with Limited Mobility and Disabilities: For any traveller with additional requirements regarding mobility, disabilities or any condition you feel you should inform us of before travel, we always recommend you get in touch. We would love to best accommodate you. In some circumstances you will not get the full benefit of the tour but we can always try to adapt some or all aspects to suit you. If we cannot then we can usually offer ideas for doing the tour yourself, often with detailed plans or using another operator. Get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
