Full description
Start your tour by bordering Glasgow to reach the west of Loch Lomond, the heart of Trossachs National Park. Loch Lomond is the largest expanse of fresh water in the country, where you will stop off at the conservation village of Luss. From here, the landscape turns into an unforgettable picture. The tour proceeds through mansions, golf courses, and nature, while the Military Road will guide you throughout history. 

Continue on your tour of Oban with a visit to Loch Awe, a location that will surely delight you with one of the most impressive pictures of Scotland: the majestic and imperturbable Kilchurn Castle. This fortress belonged to the Clan Campbell of Glenorchy from the 15th-century. Later, in the 18th-century, it was abandoned and its ruins made it a source of inspiration for artists like William Turner, making this one of the most photographed castles in Scotland. If the rain makes access to the Castle difficult, you will have the chance to visit Saint Conan Kirk. This church and its cloister were designed by Walter Douglas Campbell at the end of the 19th-century. It was an architectonic whim made of granite, and nowadays it’s a tribute to Norman and Ancient Roman styles. 

After the Castle visit, Oban awaits you. It is here that you will get a taste of the local gastronomy. This location, known as the “Seafood Capital of Scotland” will offer you many culinary possibilities in a welcoming environment. The west coast village is characterized by its Victorian style and the opening to the Atlantic Ocean, with views to the islands of Kerrera, Lismore or Mull.

Before the trek back to Edinburgh, you will stop in Inveraray, Royal Burgh and home to the ancient Duke of Argyll, this town is situated next to Loch Fyne. Inveraray will show you the good taste of the most prominent architect of the Scottish Enlightenment, William Adam. Afterward, you will drive through the Argyll Forest Park, the oldest among the British forest parks, with very steep risks, hidden glens, and winding rivers. In the South of Loch Lomond, you will find the town of Balloch, where you will enjoy a hot drink before starting the last stage of your route to Edinburgh.
