    Tour Description:

    West Highlands Tour from EdinburghThe Gateway to the Isles and the best of the West Highlands

    We leave Edinburgh and head through Scotland's bustling central belt to pay a flying visit to the energetic second city of Glasgow, then we dive straight into the countryside, travelling up Loch Lomond (the largest expanse of fresh water in the country) to stop off at the conservation village of Luss. We then head deep into the Highlands, passing through breathtaking scenery (including views along Loch Awe, the longest in Scotland). The countryside you'll pass through is dotted with historic sites and monuments such as the haunting Kilchurn Castle (historically a stronghold of the Campbell clan) and the Pass of Brander (where Robert the Bruce had a notable victory). As we tour north, we'll stop so you can take some fantastic photographs to record your highland journey.

    West Highlands Tour from Edinburgh By lunchtime, you'll have reached Oban and will have time to explore this Victorian seaside town and to try some of the freshest seafood you'll ever have tasted. The town is overlooked by McCaigs Tower, a spectacular folly with over 90 arches. You don't have to climb to the tower to enjoy stunning sea views to Mull and Kerrara.

    On the way back to Edinburgh, you'll visit the seat of the Campbell Clan at Inveraray, where we'll stop so that you can enjoy ice cream, homemade sweets and coffee and drink in the beauty of Loch Fyne. By the time you get home your head will be swimming with tales of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce and full of memories of Oban and the islands beyond.
