Oban and the Western Highlands

from Glasgow

Tour Highlights: Loch Lomond, Luss, Crianlarich, Tyndrum, Glen Lochy, Dalmally, Loch Awe, The Falls of Lora, Oban, Kilchurn Castle, Inveraray, Rest and be Thankful, Argyle Forest Park, Glasgow

Enjoy some of Scotland’s most beautiful lochs, glens and mountains as we tour through the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park to visit the attractive town of Oban, in the heart of the beautiful Western Highlands.

Our journey takes us northwards through the
Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park with it’s lochs and mountains and into the Highlands. From Edinburgh we travel to Glasgow then make our way through Rob Roy country towards the little Highland village of Tyndrum. Next we travel 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 "new” 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.

During our descent of the "Rest and be Thankful” 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 Glasgow and then onward to Edinburgh.
