Our journey starts with wonderful views of Stirling, with its Majestic Castle standing guard over the surrounding countryside. Next there's a chance to visit magnificent Doune Castle * (which featured in the cult movie ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail' and the popular "Outlander" TV series).

Shortly we cross from the Lowlands into the Highlands and are rewarded with views of lovely Loch Lubnaig before driving through "bonnie” Strathyre to reach Rob Roy MacGregor country beyond.

There are views of Loch Earn before we climb through impressive Glen Ogle, stopping nearby for lunch and the beautiful views of the surrounding scenery.

After lunch we tour through Glen Lochy to admire spectacular Kilchurn Castle, majestically situated on Loch Awe, and beautifully framed by the surrounding mountains.

Our next stop is Inveraray, a quaint small town built in the mid-18th century, on the shore of Loch Fyne. Here we can choose to visit Inveraray Castle*(April - October only), the historic home of the Duke of Argyll, chief of the Clan Campbell, which is nestled in large beautiful gardens overlooking Loch Fyne. Alternatively, explore the town's white-washed Georgian houses, wide streets and enjoy views across the shores of Loch Fyne.

Our journey southwards towards Glasgow takes us through the dramatic "Rest and be Thankful” pass then into the Argyll Forest Park. Look out for "The Cobbler”, just one of the peaks of the "Arrochar Alps”.

Romantic Loch Lomond is next and when we make our last stop of the day in the picturesque conservation village of Luss you'll have a chance to discover the "bonnie, bonnie banks” for yourself!

From Loch Lomond we follow the Kilpatrick Hills towards Glasgow then across the Central Belt of Scotland to Edinburgh.
