Full description
You’ll depart Edinburgh in the morning and travel through Scotland's bustling central belt, across to Glasgow, the country’s largest city. From Glasgow, it’s on to Loch Lomond, the largest expanse of fresh water in the country. Stop at the conservation village of Luss for coffee and sightseeing. Head deep into the Highlands, traveling through breathtaking scenery, on this full-day tour. You’ll see Loch Awe, the longest of Scotland’s lakes, and countryside with a rich history. You’ll come to haunting Kilchurn Castle, historically a stronghold of the Campbell Clan, and the Pass of Brander, where Robert the Bruce had a notable victory. Enjoy lunch in Oban and then take time to explore this lovely Victorian seaside town. Climb up McCaig's Tower, take in the views of the islands of Mull and Kerrera, and try some of the freshest seafood you’ve ever tasted! On the way back to Edinburgh, you'll visit Inveraray, the seat of the Campbell Clan, with a stop for ice cream, homemade sweets, or cakes. Enjoy a coffee and take in the beauty of Loch Fyne.

Our driver & guide, Maj, was fantastic! Maj set the tone at once by making sure everyone was comfortable and engaged, and along the way shared his knowledge and experience of Scotland and the locations we visited. He introduced music with the traditional stories they were based on, and often they related to the history of the locations we were experiencing. I’ve been to the eastern Highlands a few times before but never the western side, and I loved it and learned a lot.

Great day tour in a small group with great tour guide

When booking, I was a little skeptical whether the tour was not too big for a day. Because what I didn't want to do was rush around like these Asian tourists who just flock out of the bus for a photo and then quickly drive on again. First of all: Fortunately it wasn't like this :-) Although I was at the wrong meeting point in the morning (there are several Cafè Nero in Edinburgh ;-)) John (our guide / driver) took care of me and waited until I was there. The five of us drove off, and in Glasgow five more people joined - all in all a nice size. John already told exciting stories about Edinburgh and his crooks on the way to Glasgow and shone with a lot of knowledge and entertainment factor. At each stopover we had plenty of time to explore on our own (of course always with the best tips from John "up close"). All in all, it was a wonderful tour that I can recommend to everyone! Thank you "Lord John" :)
