Discovering Loch Fyne, Inveraray Castle & Garden and Loch Lomond with a private guide.


(Full day tour)
See spectacular vistas of Scottish lochs, taste the finest Scottish seafood and enjoy a visit to Inveraray Castle, seat of the Clan Campbell.

Our first stop is the pretty conservation village of Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond. Passing beneath "The Cobbler" (Ben Arther), we journey through the "Arrochar Alps" and on for a photo-shoot at the spectacular viewpoint known as the "Rest and be Thankful". Then we may stop for lunch at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar for a taste of the finest Scottish seafood. Arriving in Inveraray, visit the Castle & garden, romantic highland home of the Duke & Duchess of Argyll and check out the Clyde puffer "Vital Spark", once used for transporting coal, moored in the harbour.

Itinerary

Our vehicle allows us to venture where the big coaches cannot go and park alongside Luss pier to enjoy spectacular views across Loch Lomond towards the islands and Ben Lomond. The long running Scottish soap opera, "Take the High Road", was filmed in and around Luss in the 1980's.
Next stop is the famous viewpoint "Rest and Be Thankful" for panoramic views and a photo opportunity.
Onward to Loch Fyne, once renowned for abundant herring catches and perhaps eat lunch at the superb Loch Fyne Oyster Bar.
A short distance into Inveraray we find the living museum in 19th. century Inveraray Jail where you can meet the warder and talk to the prisoners.
