Tour Description

A tour of Scotlands' Stunning West Coast...


Loch Lomond and the Highlands... 

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. Whilst here, grab yourself a quick coffee, or why not do a spot of sightseeing over the Loch. 

 

Highland Scenery and History... 

We then head deep into the Highlands, passing through enchanting forestry via Loch Awe, the longest loch in Scotland. As we continue through the stunning highlands, you are graced with rich history as we catch a glimpse of Kilchurn Castle, best known historically as a stronghold of the Campbell Clan. Leaving this piece of history behind we continue through The Pass of Brander, the location where Robert the Bruce had a notable victory. 

 
  
Lunch at the sea-side town of Oban... 

By lunchtime, we'll have reached Oban, a quaint seaside town. Here you'll have ample time to grab a bite to eat, as well as explore the seaside town. Why not climb up to McCaig’s Tower, take in the views over to the Isles of Mull and Kerrera, take a look at the tantalising Falls of Lora or treat yourself by trying some of the freshest seafood you’ll have ever tasted.   

 
 
Coffee and Cakes at Inveraray by Loch Fyne… 

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. You'll have the opportunity to tour Inveraray Castle if you choose. It is a fine example of gothic revival architecture which makes you feel as if you've stepped into a fairytale. It also has an extensive collection of weaponry within.


Rest and Be Thankful...

What a view, the perfect end to your day. A place to reflect and take it all in and get your final stunning picture before returning to Edinburgh.

Tour Reviews


Thank you to the staff of Highland Experience for allowing us to swap our booked tour to Oban the night before. It was a very enjoyable tour, our driver/tour guide Owen was entertaining and informative, with a great sense of fun. The scenery was beautiful, the little church that we stopped at had an amazing timber structure to the main roof and cloisters. The town of Oban was very picturesque with fresh fish and shellfish to die for at the "Green Tent " at a very reasonable price.

This was a great tour, it is a very long ride to Oban but our guide Rob was brilliant!! He was very entertaining and told us lots of interesting things. We got some extra ninja-photo-stops which made the tour even more interesting. The weather was great, the scenery was amazing and it was a really great day!!! We have done another tour with this company a year ago and the service was still just as great! We will use this company again on our next trip to Scotland!!

Great scenery along the way to the destination. Thanks for Brendan our guide and driver, with his jokes and explanation. Good lunch at Oban seafood restaurant. It is really worth short tour.

(Benni L – Trip Advisor – June 2018)


What a fantastic 1 day tour that takes you through the wonderful Scottish Highlands! Going through Loch Lomond, stopping for lunch in Oban (which has really nice seafood btw!), and then finishing off the day with the Inveraray and Loch Fyne (which really did look fine). Highly recommended tour as you get to experience the Highlands off the beaten path rather than going to the overcrowded Loch Ness! And the best part - the staff. Big thanks to Holly for helping me make the reservation, and a special mention to Lizzie - our guide for the day who has been an absolute star all day long! She even managed us to find some Heilan Coos to take pictures with, even though they were not on our itinerary! Massive thanks for making our day.
