T04 Two Day Glencoe, Loch Lomond and West Coast Tour - From Seventeen Hours

Tours are exclusive but some people offer spare seats on their tour, shown in green below.

For a full list of dates see the calendar page.

 

Day One - You are collected from your Inverness Hotel, B & B, the airport or station and we head along the side of Loch Ness stopping at various viewpoints including a photostop at Urquhart Castle.

Weather permitting, we can have a wander by the canal locks in Fort Augustus, and then it is on to Fort William for some free time and lunch.

In the early afternoon we take a truly memorable drive through some of Scotland's most rugged scenery, including tragic Glencoe and the vast emptiness of Rannoch Moor.

There may be time for a visit to the National Trust for Scotland's award-winning visitor centre in Glencoe.

We pass some remnants of the ancient Caledonian forest as we travel south through Glen Falloch, and then it is on to the "Bonnie Bonnie" banks of Loch Lomond.

We finish the day with a dramatic drive through the Arrochar Alps (the Rest and be Thankful Pass), which will take us to the west coast at Loch Fyne, and the picture-perfect little town of Inveraray. Previously the centre of Clan Campbell power, it represents a masterpiece of Georgian town-planning dating from the middle of 18th century.

Inveraray Castle (Duneagle Castle in Downton Abbey) may be visited at the end of the day (if time allows), from April to October inclusive.

Inveraray is our overnight location.

 

Day Two - The next morning there is ample time to visit Dunadd, the first capital of the Scots, dating from pre-500AD. Look out from the high strongpoint of King Fergus the Great. Then we see Kilmartin Glen, best collection of Neolithic and Bronze Age Stone Circles, Henges and Cairns anywhere on the Scottish mainland.

As we travel north through the beautiful native woodlands of Argyll, we make our way around many lovely sea inlets, coming at last to that major west Highland port - Oban. The town is built around Oban Bay, and offshore we can see the islands of Kerrera and Mull.

There will be free time for a walk and lunch in Oban.

Now we journey along the delightful coast road to Fort William. There will be further photo opportunities as we return along the Great Glen to Inverness. If time allows then we will take some different scenic back roads on our return.

 

Total price: £750 for guide and vehicle - check top of calendar page for how many passengers each guide can carry. (+ £75 total subsistence, paid to guide on the day).
