Oban, Glencoe and West Highland Castles Day Trip from Glasgow
US$53.08
Overview

There’s no need to worry about tackling mountain roads in left-hand drive on this comprehensive coach tour that sweeps you from Glasgow to Glen Coe, Loch Lomond, and Oban through staggering Highland landscapes. Step back in time to three of the Highlands’ most beautiful castles—Castle Stalker, Inveraray Castle, and Kilchurn Castle—with live commentary from your local guide.

What to Expect

Board your coach and greet your guide in central Glasgow, then travel through rugged highland scenery to the 18th-century town of Inveraray. The fairytale castle here is home to the Duke of Argyll, while Loch Fyne laps at the town’s charming shores.

Pause for photos of Kilchurch Castle, framed by dramatic mountains and perched on the banks of Loch Awe, as you travel deeper into the Highlands to Oban, the pretty town that’s gateway to the Western Isles.

Pass 15th-century Castle Stalker, set on an island in Loch Laich, on route to Glen Coe, where your driver will relate the tragic tale of the MacDonald clan who were murdered here. After journeying across Rannoch Moor and the Black Mount, stroll the shores of Loch Lomond then return to George Street, Glasgow.
