Day 2: Cruise Loch Lomond, Loch Awe & Inveraray: Visit the ‘Queen of the Scottish Lakes’ and explore the famous bonnie banks. Loch Lomond lies in a national park and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. There is a host of wildlife, plenty of stunning views and many activities in and around the national park. Cruise on Loch Lomond to fully appreciate the landscape and to learn about the turbulent history before travelling west towards stunning Lochawe and Inveraray. Overlooking the still waters of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is the most iconic town in Argyll. This pretty town was founded in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the infamous Clan Campbell. Inveraray is a classic example of an 18th century planned town and the Georgian architecture remains unspoilt. There is plenty to do and see in the town and visits to the neo-Classical church and Inveraray jail are a must.
Day 3: Fort William, Glencoe & Rannoch Moor. Lying in the shadow of Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, Fort William is the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’ and boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the Highlands. Fort William lies along the banks of Loch Linnhe and is the main town in Lochaber but is just a short distance from spectacular Glencoe and Rannoch Moor. Glencoe is undoubtedly the most popular and scenic glen in Scotland. The sheer scale and grandeur of the landscape is sure to inspire and the turbulent history of the area will fascinate visitors. Then visit nearby Rannoch Moor – one of Scotland’s outstanding areas of natural wilderness and rugged beauty.
Day 4: Oban. The largest town in Argyll & The Isles, Oban is known as the 'Gateway to the Isles' and is the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland'. Oban has a way of drawing out the romantic side of visitors, with its mists that roll in from the sea, and the hills which overlook the bay. The most iconic feature within Oban is McCaig's Tower, a Colosseum lookalike that stands above the town and offers wonderful views out west. From seafood to whisky, Oban offers a great range of local produce - all well worth sampling!
