A stunning scenic private tour of the West of Scotland


During this tour you will discover the true beauty of this fantastic country. You will have the opportunity to experience the taste and smells of our fine cuisine from a "wee dram" to the elusive haggis. We will travel through villages by mountains and lochs with plenty of local walks and photo opportunities. Soak in the atmosphere of the rest and be thankful or the beautiful banks of Loch Lomond.

We can visit castles and jails and step into the past to discover some of our fascinating history. Most of our stops will provide the opportunity to pick up a Scottish souvenir or enjoy the sweet taste of a wee scone or some tablet. By the end of our tour you will have a little more knowledge of our history and you will have uncovered some of the very unique experiences that define Scotland.

Itinerary

- From your pick up point we will head up the West side of loch Lomond and head West to arrochar where you will get fantastic views of the cobbler hill.
- We will head over the rest and be thankful towards loch Fyne and Inverary where you can visit the jail, castle and bell tower depending on your energy levels.
- From here we will head around loch Awe and then start our return South through Tyndrum and the famous green welly.
- We then have 2 options, back to Glasgow via loch Lomond again or through Callander with more tourist shops. We can decide on the day.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel

End Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 8 hours

Traffic is very variable and we may have to alter the time spent at each location depending on how busy it is. This is not so much seasonal as it is weather driven. If it is a nice sunny day it is likely to be more busy.

Transportation

The transport is a luxury 9 seater Mecedies Vito minibus but we will only carry up to 7 people to ensure everyone gets a fantastic view as we are driving through some amazing scenery.

What’s Included

  • Guiding Services
  • Private Transportation

Other: You are paying for the personal tour guide who will adapt the tour to meet all of your needs, the luxury transportation and the flexibility you would not be able to get from a standard tour package and the research used to create what I believe will be a perfect experience for you and your group. I will try and accommodate all requests before, during and indeed after the tour has been delivered.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 £ GBP - You will not need to spend any money to enjoy this tour but there will be options to go into Inverary Castle, or visit the jail. We will stop for some food but there are plenty of cheapish options or you can enjoy a nice Hotel meal. There are lots of souvenir shops throughout this trip.

What’s Extra

  • Personal Expenses
  • Souvenirs
  • Food, Drinks, Snacks

Other: There will be some limited hospitality as part of the tour but guests will have to pay entrance fees into castles etc as charged at the time. I will provide details as up to date as possible with regard to this.

Restrictions

I am not a licensed guide and will not be able to guide you inside the historic monuments, I will however accompany you and give you my insights where applicable.
