What to expect

Leaving Edinburgh, you'll travel west to 600 year old Doune Castle where you'll learn about how the castle was used as a film set for films such as 'Monty Python and The Holy Grail', before continuing onto the wild mountains and forests of the Highlands.

You'll wind your way through the mountains and after a short stop, you'll have the chance to experience another ancient castle - the ruins of Kilchurn situated on the edge of Loch Awe. You'll head over to another picturesque loch and to the town of Inveraray where you'll have the opportunity to explore or head over to the Old Jail.

Leaving Inveraray, you'll take a drive up through the steep-sided mountains known as the Arrochar Alps to the great viewpoint at 'Rest and Be Thankful'.

You'll then skirt around Loch Long and down to the "Bonnie, Bonnie Banks" of Loch Lomond. You'll make a short stop at the conservation village of Luss, where you can wander around taking in its quaint houses and stunning views across the loch.

From here, you'll make your way back to Edinburgh, with a short photo stop underneath Stirling Castle.
