Itinerary

From Edinburgh we travel west, passing the historic and imposing Stirling Castle, high on its volcanic rock. From there we'll drive into the Highlands, past the lovely Loch Lubnaig and up through the impressive Glen Ogle, stopping nearby for lunch and beautiful views of the surrounding scenery.

After lunch we'll head towards the Highlands, passing one of the most photographed castles in Scotland, Kilchurn Castle, jutting into beautiful Loch Awe and stunningly framed by the surrounding mountains. Then it’s on to Inveraray, a quaint small town built in the mid-18th century, on the shore of Loch Fyne. Explore the town and pick up some Highland souvenirs, or pay an optional visit to Inveraray Castle (April to October only), the historic home of the Duke of Argyll, chief of the Clan Campbell, which is set in large beautiful gardens overlooking Loch Fyne.

We now start our homeward journey, driving over the Arrochar Alps, an attractive range of mountains, with a brief pause near the top of the Rest and Be Thankful Pass. A little later we reach enchanting Loch Lomond, where we stop at the pretty lochside village of Luss before returning to Edinburgh, arriving around 7 pm.
