Departing from Glasgow, you'll travel northwest along the shores of Loch Lomond and cross the Highland Boundary Fault Line where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens. It's easy to forget that this was once thought of as a dangerous frontier fought over by fiercely territorial Highland clans! Then, you'll take a leisurely drive over the 'Rest and Be Thankful' mountain pass as make your way to the picturesque harbour town of Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne.
From there, you'll drive along the shore of Scotland’s longest loch, Loch Awe, where you can snap some photos of Kilchurn Castle, a magnificent ruin situated in the middle of the loch. Then, it's time to head to the harbour town of Oban, gateway to the Isles before traveling north along the west coast around Appin, passing the impregnable Castle Stalker and into Scotland's most famous valley, Glencoe. Stunningly beautiful, with its dramatic cliff faces and steep slopes, Glencoe has a shocking history that you'll hear all about.
Travelling south, you'll pass the majestic peak of Buachaille Etive Mor (meaning 'the great shepherd of Etive') and descend towards the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor. At an altitude of over 1000ft, covered by heather and peat-bogs and dotted with dozens of lochs, it's a unique landscape. From here, you will then travel through Glen Falloch and drive south towards Loch Lomond. Your last stop of the day will be Luss, an 18th century conservation village with old workers cottages and stunning views across the loch.
