Shimmering lochs, breathtaking mountain scenery & historic castles, enjoy the incredible views and settings that are the natural splendour of the Western Highlands.
Visit the magnificent Inveraray Castle. Enjoy free time in Oban or choose to visit the Oban whisky distillery and on your return to Glasgow we will stop off for some refreshments by a roaring log fire at a 307 year old haunted inn.
Departing Glasgow we cross the Erskine Bridge which looks down on Dumbarton Rock & Castle. See Ben Lomond as we travel along the west side of Loch Lomond. Our route takes us around the head of Loch Long by very steep rocky mountains known as the Arrochar Alps to the"Rest and be Thankful" and then Inveraray.
A classic example of an 18th century planned town, built by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, chief of the powerful Clan Campbell. The town is a magnificent piece of Scottish Georgian architecture with its distinctive white washed buildings. You have the option to visit the iconic Inverarary Castle.
From Inveraray we travel to the imposing Kilchurn Castle, which stands at the head of Loch Awe amid a backdrop of soaring mountains.
We will stop for lunch in Oban, originally a small fishing village, now it is the Gateway to the Isles. Here you have free time to wander around this little Highland town or take an optional whisky distillery tour.
After lunch our route takes us along the breathtaking west coast, passing Loch Creran on route to Castle Stalker, situated on its own little islet in Loch Laich. We will stop at the viewpoint here for some photos.
Our next stop will be at spectacular Glencoe, known as the "Weeping Glen" due to the terrible events that took place here by Government soldiers in 1692.
Our route takes us over Rannoch Moor,to the Drovers Inn. Over the years the Drovers has welcomed the great and the good including the infamous Rob Roy MacGregor.
