Full description
On this tour you will experience the shimmering lochs, scenic mountain views, and romantic and historic castles of the western highlands.

From Glasgow we will cross the Firth of Clyde, passing Dumbarton's famous and imposing rock fortress. Our first stop is the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the 'Bonny, Bonny Banks' of Loch Lomond. Here you can walk along the shore or stay to admire the village.

We then pass several dramatic castles and lochs as we climb into the Highlands. We will stop for lunch at the fishing town of Oban.

We then journey on a southern route that takes us past the spectacular Kilchurn Castle, majestically situated on Loch Awe.

Our final stop is Inveraray, historic seat of the Duke of Argyll, where you can choose to either visit Inveraray Castle* (April-October only) or explore the town’s Georgian houses and wide streets.

We return to Glasgow via the Rest and Be Thankful pass.
