Full description
After meeting at the central point in Oban, you will be taken on a tour off the beaten track to local historical sites often not seen by the average tourist and learn about the origins and history of Oban.

From there you will go to see Kilchurn Castle which dates to back to the 15th-century and was the original home of the Clan Campbell.

You will then be taken through Glen Lonan, a hidden gem of a valley where standing stones and highland cattle can be seen.
