West Highland Lochs and Castles Day Trip from Edinburgh
From US$58.23
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
If you appreciate rugged landscapes and ancient fortresses, 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 see.
What to Expect
After meeting your coach on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, you travel to Doune Castle in Stirlingshire, recognizable from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Note that entrance to all castles is at your own expense.
Journey through the Highlands, past lochs, castles, and glens, and take a break near Glen Ogle for photos and lunch (own expense).
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.

Our tour guide was very nice, although I cant remember his name, sorry. The tour itself though was very good, and we had a good amount of time to explore each stop. Highly recommend Timberbush to those who would like a day trip from Edinburgh.More
