From Glasgow: Oban, Glencoe, Highland Lochs & Castles Tour

1. From Glasgow: Oban, Glencoe, Highland Lochs & Castles Tour

Explore the stunning lochs and castles of the Western Highlands on this small-group tour from Glasgow. You'll see the superb ruins of Kilchurn on Loch Awe, the bustling west coast harbor town of Oban, and the dramatic beauty of Glencoe. Depart Glasgow at 8:30 AM and travel through gorgeous Glen Fruin, driving parallel with Loch Long. You'll then cross the Highland boundary, where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically–the flat plains of the Lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens. Continue your drive over the Rest and Be Thankful mountain pass before traveling through the Arrochar Alps. You'll then arrive at the picturesque harbor town of Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne. From here you will drive along the shore of Scotland’s longest loch, Loch Awe, where you'll stop to take photos of Kilchurn Castle, a magnificent ruin right in the middle of Loch Awe and the former home of the Campbells of Breadalbane. You will then continue to the harbor town of Oban, gateway to the Isles, where you will eat lunch. After lunch you'll travel north along the coast around Appin, passing imposing Castle Stalker, and into Scotland's most famous valley, Glencoe. This is Scotland's largest loch and it takes its name from the mountain Ben Lomond. The last stop of the day will be in Luss, an 18th-century conservation village with old workers' cottages, built for the laborers of the estate.

Jeff C. was an amazing guide!! I saw sooo much of Scotland and U would definitely go on another tour with him. He was funny, informational, and really wanted to make sure we had as good of a time as possible. cannot speak highly enough of him. This was absolutely worth my time and money!

I enjoyed this tour so so much! i was will a lovely group of travelers and Frazer was our guide. he warned us he’d speak a lot and he did but it was always very interesting facts and things about the area we were in at the time. he also played some good tunes

A trip worth spending money on. Our guide was incredible, insightful and witty. He had a song playlist prepared to back his stories and jokes. That was a musical journey too! Not to mention the views of glen coe.

This was a wonderful tour with Jeff C of Rabbies Glasgow! He kept us fully entertained and engaged and educated!

Fantastic way to see the sights in limited time ! Friendly and helpful tour guide
