Your full-day day tour of Scotland’s enchanting Highlands and seaside Oban begins in Edinburgh, where you’ll meet your guide on the Royal Mile. You’ll set off in the morning through the Lowlands towards your first stop in the village of Luss, passing through Glasgow to pick up fellow travelers. Then head into Trossachs National Park for a beautiful scenic drive through forest-covered terrain, punctuated by dramatic mountain peaks. You’ll stop near Loch Lomond to stretch your legs and takes in the sights before continuing west.
Cruise along the shoreline of the tranquil Loch Awe to the romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle. As you travel, learn about battles that occurred in this region and rulers like King Robert the Bruce and Clan Campbell, who possessed the Argyll lands for centuries.
You’ll soon arrive in the colorful coastal town of Oban, where seafood abounds and you can indulge in a lunch of prawn sandwiches, fresh oysters or crab (own expense). Take some time to eat and explore the Victorian town. Visit McCaig's Tower, a granite tower in Roman style that offers stunning views of the bay. Don't hesitate to climb to the top to see all the way to the Isle of Mull!
From here, make your way back to Edinburgh, stopping at the white-washed village of Inveraray. Explore the town’s shops, purchase some local sweets and admire sweeping views of Loch Fyne before returning to the capital. Your 11.5-hour tour arrives at the departure point by evening.
