West Highland Lochs and Castles Day Trip from Edinburgh
From US$61.53
Overview

If landscapes are your passion and ancient fortresses mesmerize you, this full-day tour of West Highlands lochs and castles is perfect—even with only limited time in Scotland. Visit Doune Castle, Glen Ogle, Loch Awe, Kilchurn Castle, Inveraray Castle, Loch Lomond, and the Arrochar Alps, with plenty of stops to take pictures and a driver-guide to explain what you’re seeing.

What to Expect

After joining your coach on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, begin at Doune Castle in Stirlingshire, instantly recognizable from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Journey through the Highlands, past lochs, castles, and glens, then take a break near Glen Ogle for photos (and lunch, if you’d like).

Your next stop is Kilchurn Castle, set on the banks of Loch Awe, and surrounded by mountains. After a photo stop, continue to the small highland village of Inveraray with its stunning 18th-century castle, home to the Duke of Argyll. Return to the Royal Mile by way of the Arrochar Alps, with stops at the Rest and Be Thankful pass and on the shores of Loch Lomond.

Good getaway from Edinburgh

My wife and I went on this tour because we had never visited the Highlands, and because I have a clan connection with Inveraray Castle. The visit to Inveraray was excellent, with ample time to have lunch and tour the house and grounds. There were...More

West Highlands Lochs, Mountains and Castles tour

I chose this large group tour against my better judgement as it was the only Highland tour available that day. For the same price I could have had a small group tour if I had booked the tour a day or two earlier. The tour...More

Fabulous day trip to West Highlands, Castles, and Loch Loman

Four of us did the tour together on a bus that seated 16 (with 15 on our trip that day). Our driver guide, Mark, was absolutely fabulous, as was his colleage, Dave. Mark is a very safe driver and we were comfortable with him in...More
