The first stop on the tour is Luss, a little village on the banks of Loch Lomond. Its restored 18th-century cottages are picture-postcard perfect and it’s the ideal location to appreciate the stunning beauty of Scotland’s largest loch in the heart of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Then, venture deeper into the Highlands, with the landscape around you becoming ever more rugged, until you reach Inveraray, a picturesque village on the western shore of Loch Fyne, famous for its delicious oysters. The highlight of your visit to Inveraray will undoubtedly be the magnificent Gothic Revival castle. This castle, which featured in an episode of ‘Downton Abbey’, was built in the 18th century for the Duke of Argyll who, during the construction, had the whole town moved so that the castle would be more secluded!
Take in the spectacular scenery as you wind your way through the mountains to reach Glencoe, one of the most unforgettable parts of the Highlands. You won’t believe the views as you approach the glen and once there, you’ll visit the award-winning Visitor Centre, the perfect place from which to appreciate the remarkable landscape, formed by volcanic activity and ice ages.
