Oban and Argyll Explorer Tour

Head to Oban a thriving fishing port, known as the Gateway to the Isle. On route we will travel through the heart of Argyll, passing Highland lochs and mountains, stopping to explore loch-side towns and historic castles. Hear about the ancient myths and legends that explain the culture, landscape and people we will see during our full day private tour.

A one day private tour departing from Glasgow

Leaving the bustle of Glasgow behind we cross the River Clyde, soon entering the tranquility of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Stopping at the loch-side village of Luss, stretch your legs and look out across Loch Lomond, the largest loch in Scotland.

Continuing you’ll travel alongside tree-lined lochs with mountains towering above before heading in to the depths of Clan Campbell territory and learning about their influence on Scottish history. You will follow in the footsteps of Robert the Bruce, who faced heroic battles in these Highland glens and hear tales of fierce clan battles.

The colourful fishing port of Oban is a far gentler place renowned for it’s fresh seafood. There are plenty of options for lunch during your stop here and an opportunity to stroll up to McCaig’s Tower a Victorian folly above the town or pick up a bottle of the local malt whisky from the Oban Distillery.

Our journey to the white-washed town of Inveraray takes us past some hidden highlights of the West Highlands. St Conan’s Kirk is a beautiful, and somewhat eccentric church, sat on a crag high above the waters of Loch Awe. Whilst the romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle sit on an island jutting out in to the loch.

Arriving in Inveraray you can choose to visit the castle, home to the Duke of Argyll or step inside Inveraray Jail, now a popular tourists attraction in the village. Or you could explore the shops (try buying a Scottish decoration in the Christmas Shop) and wander along the quayside enjoying the view of Loch Fyne.

From here, sit back and enjoy the scenery on your return journey to Glasgow arriving back at your pick-up point in the early evening.
