About this activity
Join an Oban and West Highland Lochs and Castles day tour. Visit castles, lochs, and fishing villages while learning about the region’s fascinating history before heading back to Glasgow.
Full Description of the Event.
On this tour, you will experience the shimmering lochs, scenic mountain views, and romantic and historic castles of the western highlands.
From Glasgow cross the Firth of Clyde, passing Dumbarton’s famous and imposing rock fortress. The first stop is the pretty conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny, Bonny Banks’ of Loch Lomond. Here you can walk along the shore or stay to admire the village.
Pass several dramatic castles and lochs as the tour climb into the Highlands. Make a stop for lunch at the fishing town of Oban. Journey on a southern route that takes you past the spectacular Kilchurn Castle, majestically situated on Loch Awe.
Our final stop is Inveraray, the historic seat of the Duke of Argyll, where you can choose to either visit Inveraray Castle (April-October only) or explore the town’s Georgian houses and wide streets. Return to Glasgow via the Rest and Be Thankful pass.
