Discover stunning landscapes and cultural heritage.
Depart your Edinburgh/Glasgow hotel: Travel along the banks of Loch Lomond. Visit the village of Luss, then travel on to Tarbet and over the Rest and Be Thankful pass to Inverary. Coming into Inverary we could visit the Castle with its fine display of furniture, tapestries, guns, swords, china and paintings. Then we continue south to Lochgiplhead, then west to Kilmartin, famous for its pre Celtic stone circles, burial cairns and sentinel stones. Bed and breakfast is at Crinan, where you have exceptional views of the islands to the west.
Continue north towards Oban and the Bridge over the Atlantic. Spend a little time in Oban before continuing north to Glencoe. We pass Castle Stalker on the way and arrive in Glencoe. There is lots of history here, with the massacre in 1692 of the Macdonalds of Glencoe. We now take the road to Fort William and travel eastwards to Kingussie and Speyside. A short drive south takes us to Pitlochry where you will stay the night at a nice bed and breakfast. This lovely town has the smallest distillery in Scotland and is well worth a visit.
Retrace our steps a few miles north to Blair Castle, which is a fine example of a bastion castle. Home to the Duke of Atholl it has the most comprehensive collection of memorabilia in Scotland. We continue south to Dunkeld to see the Cathedral before coming into the city Perth. After Perth we make our way to Dunblane and Stirling to see Scotland's battleground during the early years of the Wars of independence. Visits can be made to the Castle and Wallace Monument. Return to your hotel/accommodation.
