Join Wild West to discover how Scotland's most famous glen was formed by fire and ice, stand in the heart of an ancient caldera and hear the stories of the highlanders, their culture, language and lifestyle. And stand in the footprints of Bond and M
On this private tour we travel south from Fort William, following the shores of Loch Linnhe and Loch Leven to the village of Glencoe, overlooked by the famous Pap. We’ll stop off at the slate quarry and the National Trust visitor centre to learn the story of the 1692 massacre of Glencoe. Then we’ll travel through the spectacular scenery that is Glencoe, learning about the volcanoes and glaciers that shaped the landscape we see today.
From there we’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 we will start with a visit to the falls on the river Coupall, the subject of innumerable iconic images. Further down the glen, we’ll stop to recreate the famous scene from Skyfall with Bond and M before looking for the red deer which can often be found grazing close to the road.Tour Highlights
