Your Itinerary

Day 1.
We start our tour after leaving the airport by travelling north alongside the shores of Loch lomond, turning left at Tarbet and through the "rest and be thankful" pass up the mountains to Loch fyne, where we follow this - one of Scotland's longest sea lochs - to Lochgilphead where we break for a refreshment stop. Heading north again we make our way to Kilmartin Glen, an area of Scotland where people have lived, loved, farmed, hunted, played and prayed for perhaps 10,000 years. You will see the ancient hill fort of Dunadd, standing stones, burial cairns, and the graveyard at the village church, and if timew you may visit the museum here. Then it's on north to Oban for our hotel and evening meal. Famous for its sunsets, Oban has many pubs to enjoy a wee dram at tonight!

Day 2.
A deviation from Dalriada today, we take you to Loch Ness for a wee spot of monster hunting, returning through the infamous Glencoe scene of the massacre of MacDonals by the Campbells - always a dramatic stop over, beautiful scenery, thought provoking and majestic. Home again via Loch Awe and the Brander Pass, viewing Dunstaffnage Castle on our right, if time allows we will make a visit here before returning to your hotel in Oban.

A whole day trip to the Isles of Mull, Iona and Staffa. This trip takes you to the birthplace of Christianity here in Scotland, Iona, where St Columba landed to bring his religion to the Scots.
