Tour Description

If it's castles, lochs, mountains and views of the Scottish Islands, then this is one of our most recommended personalised tours for you. Leaving Edinburgh we travel towards Stirling where we will get fleeting views of Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument (other tours are available which specifically visit these attractions). From here, we make our way for a brief stop at Doune Castle, which featured in Monty Python, Game of Thrones and Outlander. We then drive through the bustling town of Callander which is situated on the River Teith.

The beautiful Scottish scenery

The beautiful Scottish scenery

Settle back and relax as we navigate through some of the most beautiful lochs and hills Scotland has to offer, we can make numerous stops for photographs. We travel alongside Loch Lubnaig, Loch Earnand the villages of Strathyre and Crianlarich before passing Ben More which stands 1,174m high. Soon we arrive at Tyndrum where we stretch our legs for a short comfort stop before driving past sections of the West Highland Way and reach the viewpoint of Loch Tulla, before driving up and through the mighty Glen Coe, again plenty of stops are made for photographs. Glen Coe is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland.

Castle Stalker

Castle Stalker

We make our way along the banks of Loch Leven and Ballachulish. We head south over the Connel Bridge, travel alongside Loch Linnhe and Castle Stalker before finally reaching Oban known as the 'Gateway to the Isles'. This picturesque town offers great views out to the Isle of Mull. Our journey back, routes us via the Loch Etive, Glen Etive and Loch Awe. The ruins of Kilchurn Castle is our next destination, the castle lies on a rocky peninsula beside Loch Awe, due to high water levels, access to the castle is sometimes restricted which turns the site into  a temporary island. We complete our loop of the mountains and lochs via a brief return comfort stop at Tyndrum. We make one final stop on the way back to visit a few Highland Cows.
