From Glasgow with Private Tour and your own Local Guide.
The West is the best! It certainly is, set in the heart of Argyll and is one of the most stunning scenic parts of the entire British isles. The Scottish highlands are without a doubt simply awesome just like namesake Loch Awe. Oban, a popular Port town takes visitors by ferries to the remote West coast isles. Surrounded in beautiful countryside with historic castles including the romantic Kilchurn castle ruin. Stories of clan warfare, treachery and cruel transportation to the new world. Depending upon loyalties to support the rightful King wining or losing. The spoils, especially reaped by the Campbells and their clan chief the Duke of Argyll against the defeated Jacobite clans. Today, there is good local produce especially seafood to eat and try some fish & chips here for lunch. There is also the Oban town single malt whisky distillery offering tours and tastes.
This is a totally awesome and action packed day tour! You will be taking the high road along the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond with short rest stop here. Then we make our way to the ruined Kilchurn castle for short nature trail and go inside to explore the ruin and get some great photos of the trip.
In Oban, there is a variety of places to eat lunch and most people choose seafood here, especially fish & chips. I can suggest which is better for you. So sit in or take away, and sometimes that does depend on the weather. You can visit the Oban whisky distillery for a tour & taste or take the time walking about the Port town. I can give you the best options and other extra stops as we go. Passing the Connel bridge and expect to see unique Highland coos (cattle) on route.
