What to expect

Leaving Glasgow your Oban tour will head west, crossing the Firth of Clyde, where you will pass Dumbarton's famous and imposing rock fortress with its equally impressive castle. You will then then reach Inveraray, a quaint town built in the mid-18th century on the shores of Loch Fyne. Here you can choose to visit Inveraray Castle the historic home of the Duke of Argyll, chief of the Clan Campbell, nestled in large beautiful gardens overlooking Loch Fyne. Alternatively, explore the town’s white-washed Georgian houses, wide streets and breathtaking views across the loch.

You tour will then climb further north into the Highlands through stunning scenery, and a route marked by several dramatic castles and beautiful lochs.You will pause to admire Kilchurn Castle, one of Scotland's most photographed castles, nestled on the banks of Loch Awe and beautifully framed by mountains. Next you will make a stop for lunch in the picturesque harbour town of Oban, ‘Gateway to the Isles’, with free time to explore its horseshoe bay and see MacCaig’s Folly, an iconic 19th century tower reminiscent of the Colosseum in Rome. After free time exploring, you will travel onwards past the 15th century Castle Stalker, which is set on a small island on Loch Laich, before reaching Glencoe, one of Scotland’s most haunting glens and site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald clan.

Your return journey takes us over the dramatic landscape of Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount before we make our final stop at the pretty conservation village of Luss on the ‘Bonnie, Bonnie Banks’ of Loch Lomond. Here we can walk along the shore or admire the village before returning to Glasgow where your Oban tour will end.

The Oban tour from Glasgow visits Inveraray Castle from April -October and alternatives will be offered from November - March
