Loch Ness, Scottish Highlands, Glencoe & Hairy Coos Tour from Edinburgh

We had a great tour with The Hairy Coo and visited the Loch Ness, the Scottish Highlands and Glencoe. We also had the chance to visit the towns of Pitlochry and Callander, Fort Augustus Abbey and the Commando Monument and to see Loch Lomond, the Trossachs National Park, Fort William, Cairngorms National Park and Forth Bridge. We had a great guide, Scot, who was a great storyteller, very informative and funny and charmed us into falling in love with Loch Lochy ;-) It was a truly memorable da. We enjoyed every minute of it.

This was such a memorable and informative tour. Not only will you get incredible views and sights of the Highlands but the history and storytelling that accompanies it is priceless. If you get the opportunity ask for Anthony. He was an amazing guide that kept us engaged, exhilarated and laughing the whole time. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour; I know I’ll book again when I have the chance to do a longer one. Thank you, Anthony & Hairy Coos…you’ve been grand!

A fabulous way to see the highlands in a day. Scott shared history & culture along the way, always keeping it entertaining. Heads up the return location may be different during the Tattoo

It's a good trip if you're short on time but it was too rushed. You can't give 45 mins- to see a new town, shop, get done with toilet business (there's a que everywhere), find a place to eat and finish eating. The time is too tight. Also, the guide Rose- she was a good story teller and a great driver but she was very brash when we missed our cruise because of the time restrictions. So just be a little polite and supportive instead of being cocky. And time is very rushed. You can't do everything in such a short time.

We were not onboarded for family trip with our kid being under little age of 7 and neither was refunded our amount, very upset with policies and also as mentioned by tour operator we didnt get refund and lost 200£ of entire trip cost

Hi, Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, due to insurance reasons we are unable to allow anyone under the age of 7 on our buses. We make this clear when customers are booking tickets and again in our FAQs. I appreciate this was frustrating for you but unfortunately there was nothing we could do in this situation. Kind Regards, The Hairy Coo Team

Thank you Stephen and the Harry Coo Tour!
Frances_D
, Aug 2022
Stephen was an exceptional tour guide, narrating our day with extensive intriguing Scottish history as we took in the majestic Highlands. In addition his sharp wit, humor and an amazing variety of Scottish music made for a fun seamless adventure. The 12 and a half hour journey flew by. There were times we would have loved to stop and have had more time to visit a historic spot, but the boat trip and lunch at Inverness was wonderful and well done at the end of the day. It was a relaxing and fabulous tour and a great way to get an overview of Scotlands beauty and to learn of its rich history. Thank you Stephen and the Harry Coo for making our trip so memorable.

The perfect day trip to the Highlands
Amy_B

This was a lovely experience. Our tour guide John was extremely fun and personable. I enjoyed listening to his stories about the history of Scotland and pointing out historical monuments. There were plenty of opportunities to get off the bus and stretch/get food/use the bathroom and I never felt uncomfortable on the bus because of this. I would recommend this to anyone who has yet to see the Highlands!

Great Tour Guide and Amazing Views!

We had a great experience touring the highlands with Jim! He was a fantastic tour guide and filled the drive with Edinburg stories and history and pointed out all of the notable scenery and locations we passed, we learned a ton! The views from the bus are absolutely breathtaking so even though the tour is a lot of driving, it’s completely worth it! Some stops were a bit short and rushed feeling, but I don’t think that has anything to do with Hairy Coo - it’s just a lot to squeeze into one day!

Fun Highlands DayTrip
Samantha_P

We really enjoyed our trip to the Highlands and Loch Ness. Our driver/tour guide Jim was brilliant. He had so many interesting and entertaining stories of Scottish history to enthrall us with throughout the journey, his knowledge was so good! There were plenty of stops for photo opportunities and it was just nice to sit back and enjoy the beautiful scenery whilst being entertained by Jim on our journey. We went on the optional 1 hour boat cruise on Lochness and enjoyed spending some time at Fort Augustus which is very pretty with plenty of places to grab some food. It was a long and enjoyable day, excellent value, and we got back to Edinburgh for around 8.30pm. We had a fabulous day and would highly recommend. Thank you to Jim and the Hairy Coo too.

Stunning from start to finish
Barbara_K
, Aug 2022
Our tour guide, Jim, captivated us with stories of lure and legend from start to finish and made the 12 hour tour not only educational but fun! The sites were stunning and gave us an appreciation for the lowlands and the highlands. There were frequent stops and beautiful towns to explore. The Loch Ness boat tour was well worth the extra fee. And the town of Port August is beautiful with plenty of shops if you opt not to go on the boat. Everything was well organized and choreographed.

My partner and I had such a great time on this trip!! Anthony was our guide and he made the day so enjoyable 😊 He was very knowledgeable telling us stories on the bus and encouraging good banter. We packed a lot into the day and he made some extra scenic stops for us to add to our experience. Great value for money, highly recommended!! Thanks again 🙏
