Highlights

  • Close encounter with wildlife
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Small-group tour by minibus
Starting from a central Edinburgh location, your small group tour departs early to beat the traffic on the drive west. Travelling via Glasgow to pick up some fellow passengers, you'll head to the first stop at the conservation village of Luss near Loch Lomond, Britain's largest freshwater loch. Take time to relax and enjoy the scenery before your tour continues into the heart of the Highlands.

Pass the hauntingly beautiful ruins of Kilchum Castle on the shores of Loch Awe, and hear tales of the Campbell Clan who once claimed the land as a stronghold. Loch Awe also follows the Pass of Brander, where Robert the Bruce (Scotland's heroic King) fought many a fierce battle in bygone times.

Reaching the Victorian seaside town of Oban in the early afternoon, take the chance to sample the freshest seafood from the town named as the Scottish Seafood Capital! Walk off your lunch with a stroll over to McCaig's Tower, the magnificent granite folly which has dominated the town's skyline since 1895. Don't be put-off by the long climb to the top! You'll be rewarded by spectacular views across the sea to the Isle of Mull.

On the return route back to Edinburgh, there will be a stop in Inverarary, a quaint village which lines the shores of Loch Fyne - characterized by it's pretty white-washed houses. Spend time at leisure and try some of the town's home-made sweets before heading back to Edinburgh, passing Scottish countryside steeped in myth and legend.

Great, Scottish countryside is beautiful. Oban is a lovely wee fishing harbour and is nice to walk around. Our guide was very good and got a lot of information on surrounding area. All in all a very pleasant day.
