What You Can Expect

Oban and the West Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow

Oban and the West Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow

Your full-day day tour of Scotland’s majestic Highlands and Oban begins in Glasgow, where you’ll meet your guide in the morning. Board the comfortable coach and set off through the Lowlands towards your first stop in the village of Luss on Loch Lomond. Stretch your legs and takes in the sights before continuing west into Trossachs National Park, winding through forest-covered terrain and mountain peaks.

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 Glasgow, 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 heading on. Your 9-hour tour arrives at the departure point by evening.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Oban was wonderful if only for the FOOD! Fresh seafood on the wharf, eaten standing up in the rain was an added laugh and a great experience of a lifetime! Great castles/palaces/stately homes too! Not to be missed no matter what the weather though the sun did shine throughout the day highlighting the massive expanse of Scottish scenery. A the the driver as well whose name I have sadly forgotten since it was quite a while ago. My first experience at rating the tour was when we first arrived home but somehow it never got posted and I have been too busy since to try again. But with careful prodding from Viator, I am trying once again.

Would have enjoyed spending more time here being a sea port right on the water was a different perspective to the Scotland we had been experiencing.

The guide was extremely knowledgeable about the region and history of Scotland. Trip length was a perfect balance between driving and stops for sightseeing. I really felt I got my money and #39;s worth.

This is a wonderful use of time when in Scotland, one I can't recommend high enough. You have to see this country anyway you can, and their vans are a very comfortable way. The itinerary was thorough and the guide's spiel is informative, to say the least. The only knock on the trip was the soundtrack of Scottish music played here and there. Quiet contemplation would have been as nice if not nicer.
