    What to Expect
    This day trip features the picturesque lochs and historic castles of the West Highlands, with plenty of stops along the way narrated by your knowledgeable guide. After pickup in central Glasgow, get comfortable in your top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the scenic drive to Loch Lomond.

    Gain intimate knowledge of Scotland on this personalized small-group tour, including the eerie glen of Glencoe, famous as the site of the 1692 Clan MacDonald massacre. Enjoy time exploring the shoreline of beautiful Loch Lomond, Scotland's largest freshwater loch.

    Other tour highlights include Inveraray town in Argyll; Loch Awe (Lochawe), Scotland’s longest loch; the ruins of Kilchurn Castle; Castle Stalker, which towers over Loch Laich; the majestic peaks of Buachaille Etive Mor; and the boggy moorland of Rannoch Moor.

    Reach out-of-the-way places and enjoy multiple photo ops of Scotland's windswept landscape before the return drive to Glasgow.

    We left at 8:30 AM and got back to Glasgow around 6:00 PM. But Andrew (driver) mentioned it was entirely dependent upon traffic, which we didn't have a lot of.
