What to expect

On this day tour, you're in for a full-day of sightseeing. Your first of port of call is Loch Lomond, the largest loch and the largest expanse of fresh water in Britain. Jump off the bus and explore the quaint conservation village of Luss which sits alongside the loch. Then it's time to go deep into the Highlands, driving along the longest Loch in Scotland, which is definitely appropriately named Loch Awe. You'll learn the history of the area as you pass through it, hearing about Kilchurn Castle, a Campbell Clan stronghold and the Pass of Brander, a famous winning battleground of Robert the Bruce.

From fresh water to seawater, you will next head to Oban, a beautiful seaside town with lots to explore. Climb to McCaig's Tower to get the best views over the Isles of Mull and Kerrera and try some of the freshest seafood you've ever tasted! Make sure you leave some room, however, as on the way back to Edinburgh, you'll visit the seat of the Campbell Clan at Inveraray, and you'll want to enjoy some ice-cream, homemade sweets, cakes and coffee or drinks here, surrounded by the beauty of Loch Fyne.
