Scotland--Day tour to the Highlands from Glasgow or Edinburgh??

My friend and I (2 women 30s) are heading to Glasgow and Edinburgh for 5 days and want to take a day tour (no car) to the Highlands. Should we do this from Glasgow or from Edinburgh?
Thanks!

This website has been recommended by numerous people on Fodor's.

I have not used it yet.

Look at the map - mountains start just north of Glasgow (Loch Lomond etc), so on a day tour you waste less time getting to highland terrain.

I've used Timberbush Tours out of Edinburgh and was very happy with their tour http://www.timberbush-tours.co.uk/

Both Rabbies and Timberbush are excellent companies. Very similar itineraries w/ small groups. IMO it really makes no difference which company or which city you use. Depends on which city you are basing in longer.

I am booked in September with this company, so I have no personal review. They seem to come highly recommended. This one is from Glasgow, although they are meeting us at our ship in Greenock. I think the price is pretty reasonable. Have been to Scotland before and did an outing from Edinburgh that included Stirling Castle.
