Capture the spirit of the Western Highlands and explore some of its most atmospheric Lochs and Castles. En-route to the Western Highland,s we stop briefly below the impressive Stirling Castle before continuing towards the medieval stronghold of Doune Castle, set of Monty Python’s “Holy Grail” and the “Outlander” series.

Next stop is the whitewashed 18th-century town of Inveraray, home of the Duke of Argyll and his magnificent Baronial style castle (open April to October). You continue over the spectacular “Rest and Be Thankful” pass to Loch Lomond, stopping at the conservation village of Luss, set on its “bonnie, bonnie banks”. From here you return to Edinburgh.
