Full description
Departing from Buchanan Bus Station in Glasgow, you’ll follow the western shores of Loch Lomond and enter the Highlands. The first stop of the day is a photo stop at "Rest and be Thankful" - a viewpoint overlooking the valley. Then it’s onwards to the town of Inveraray, on the banks of Loch Fyne. Here you can explore the town or pay entry to Inveraray Castle. From Inveraray, you’ll continue north to Loch Awe, another beautiful Highland loch. On the banks of the loch sits the ruins of Kilchurn Castle. There’s a perfect viewpoint for you to admire the panoramic views here. At lunchtime you will reach the coastal town of Oban. Known as the seafood capital of Scotland, there are lots of places to enjoy some delicious food. For the more adventurous there’s the walk up to McCaig’s tower, a stone folly with spectacular views over towards the Isle of Mull and beyond. After lunch you can visit a viewpoint overlooking Castle Stalker. It’s a unique castle which sits on a tidal islet in Loch Laich. Next up: Glencoe. A dramatic valley with an equally dramatic past, there are stories to be told here as you surround yourself with mountains and spot deer. The final stop of the day is the Drovers Inn. At over 300 years old, many famous Scots have rested there including Rob Roy McGregor. Here you can enjoy an evening refreshment before returning to Glasgow.
