Overview
Experience the natural beauty of the West Highlands, with lochs, scenic mountains and ancient castles. Visit Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne, see haunting Glencoe; site of the massacre of the MacDonald Clan and visit the quaint fishing town of Oban, gateway to the Isles.
Highlights
  • Swap hours of driving for the comfort of a climate-controlled coach
  • See Oban, Glen Coe, Loch Lomond, and three historic Highland castles
  • Experience some of the Highlands’ most beautiful landscapes
  • Learn about Scotland’s turbulent history from your local guide
What to Expect
Board your coach and greet your guide in central Glasgow, then travel through rugged highland scenery to the 18th-century town of Inveraray. The fairytale castle here is home to the Duke of Argyll, while Loch Fyne laps at the town’s charming shores.

Pause for photos of Kilchurch Castle, framed by dramatic mountains and perched on the banks of Loch Awe, as you travel deeper into the Highlands to Oban, the pretty town that’s gateway to the Western Isles.

Pass 15th-century Castle Stalker, set on an island in Loch Laich, on route to Glen Coe, where your driver will relate the tragic tale of the MacDonald clan who were murdered here. After journeying across Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount, stroll the shores of Loch Lomond then return to George Street, Glasgow.
