Reaching the Victorian seaside town of Oban in the early afternoon, take the chance to sample the freshest seafood from the town named as the Scottish Seafood Capital! Walk off your lunch with a stroll over to McCaig's Tower, the magnificent granite folly which has dominated the town's skyline since 1895. Don't be put-off by the long climb to the top! You'll be rewarded by spectacular views across the sea to the Isle of Mull.
On the return route back to Glasgow, there will be a stop in Inverarary, a quaint village which lines the shores of Loch Fyne - characterized by it's pretty white-washed houses. Spend time at leisure and try some of the town's home-made sweets before heading back to Glasgow, passing Scottish countryside steeped in myth and legend.
A power-packed day full of beautiful and diverse scenery with ample time to stop and enjoy every stop. Our guide was amazing! Not only did he prep us with information prior to each stop but he also gave us a complete and detailed history of the fight for Scottish independence while driving!
Comfortable pace, affable guide, lovely scenery…a pleasant and relaxing day.
Excellent trip, driver was very friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable regarding local history and he even played some Scottish music to accompany the trip. would recommend to anyone.
A wonderful day trip that is perfectly paced with lots of nice stops. Definitely worth doing. Colin McNeil was a particularly good guide - great stories!
This is great tour.The guide was fantastic.I got to try some terrific Scottish seafood in Oban.I highly recommend this tour to anyone.
We had a wonderful trip to Oban. The sun shone for us too! Our guide Mark in his swinging kilt was a joy to listen to. Full of facts and great stories of the clans. His historical knowledge was really great, he told us just enough to give a flavour of each place we stopped at and made us want to cram in everything we could. All in all a fantastic day. Well done Mark!!! - MR AND MRS EKE, KENT.
I can't think of anything about this tour which wasn't of a high standard. From the tour guide Alexis to the fish and chips at Nories Fish Shop in Oban to the Highland scenery. Everything left a lasting impression and we were sorry that we didn't have more time to explore the West Highlands.
We love our tour guide she was very informative. Highly recomended.
My daughter and I can't say enough good things about our trip. The whole experience was enjoyable from beginning to end. Colin was a very knowledgeable guide, and kept everyone on schedule with his humour, and entertained with his amusing stories and anecdotes. His expert narrative brought Scottish history to life, making it ever interesting and engaging. Well done Colin! I recommend this trip whole-heartedly.
