Leaving our departure city, we head towards Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of fresh water in the country, where we’ll stop off at the stunning conservation village of Luss. Luss has been a settlement since medieval times, with the village you see today dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The quaint little rows of cottages come alive with the spring flower growth and elaborate flower displays.
We then head deep into the Highlands, passing through enchanting forestry via Loch Awe, the longest loch in Scotland and jewel in Argyll’s crown. As we continue through the stunning highlands, you are graced with its rich history as we catch a glimpse of Kilchurn Castle. Perched on the shore of Loch Awe, this castle is possibly one of Scotland’s most scenic fortifications. Leaving this piece of history behind, we continue through the Pass of Brander, the location where Robert the Bruce had a notable victory. From here, we’ll head to our next stop of Oban, the star of this tour and lunch stop for the day.
By lunchtime, we’ll have reached Oban, a quaint seaside town. Oban, ‘Little Bay’ in Gaelic, is surrounded by miles of dramatic shores and beautiful countryside. Here you’ll have ample time to grab a bite to eat, as well as explore the seaside town.
On the way back to Edinburgh, we’ll visit the seat of the Campbell Clan at Inveraray, where we’ll stop so you can drink in the beauty of Loch Fyne. Established in 1745, the set is a beautiful display of Scottish Georgian architecture. You’ll have the opportunity to tour Inveraray Castle, an iconic Scottish visitor attraction, if you wish. It is a fine example of gothic revival architecture that makes you feel as if you’ve stepped into a fairytale. It also has an extensive collection of weaponry within. From here, we’ll begin our journey home.
