From Edinburgh we travel to Glasgow we make our way through Rob Roy country to the "bonnie, bonnieĒ banks of Loch Lomond where we will make a stop in the pretty village of Luss. Next we travel the entire length of Britainís largest lake then through Glen Lochy to romantic Kilchurn Castle, which stands guard at the head of Loch Awe. For years Loch Awe was a natural protection for the Campbells of Inveraray against their enemies from the North.

Oban is a picturesque fishing port set on the Firth of Lorn. We have plenty of time to discover this bustling town and enjoy the views towards the Island of Kerrera and the Inner Hebrides beyond.

The 3rd Duke of Argyll built the "newĒ town of
Inveraray between 1746 and 1780 at the head of Loch Fyne. The town sits in the shadow of his castle and, as we will discover, this pleasant town retains much of its 18th Century charm. If you wish you can visit Inveraray Castle* (open from April to October).

During our descent of the "Rest and be ThankfulĒ mountain pass we'll see the original road, built by 
General Wade, winding its way up the through the glen. Soon we reach the Argyll Forest Park where icy streams cascade down through wooded glens. Shortly we will return to the gentle shores of Loch Lomond once more. It's a short drive to Glasgowand then onwards to Edinburgh.
