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 Glasgow, 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 Glasgow, passing Scottish countryside steeped in myth and legend.

Oban was wonderful if only for the FOOD! Fresh seafood on the wharf, eaten standing up in the rain was an added laugh and a great experience of a lifetime! Great castles/palaces/stately homes too! Not to be missed no matter what the weather though the sun did shine throughout the day highlighting the massive expanse of Scottish scenery. A the the driver as well whose name I have sadly forgotten since it was quite a while ago. My first experience at rating the tour was when we first arrived home but somehow it never got posted and I have been too busy since to try again. But with careful prodding from Viator, I am trying once again.
