Depart Edinburgh city center early in the morning and head towards the west of Scotland, including Argyll, Loch Lomond, Inveraray, and more. Your first stop of the day is Doune Castle, where you have the option of exploring Doune Castle, widely recognized for the famous TV series 'Outlander.' From Doune, make your way to Tyndrum for a comfort break. Continue to the impressive ruins of Kilchurn Castle. Once home to the Campbells of Glenorchy, Kilchurn Castle overlooks the peaceful Loch Awe and has a rich history connected to the Jacobite rebellion. Then head to your next stop at Inveraray's beautiful Loch Fyne for lunch before an optional visit to Inveraray Jail, one of the best-reserved prisons in Britain. In the afternoon, begin your journey back to Edinburgh, making a quick stop at the aptly named 'Rest and Be Thankful,' where you do exactly that. Take in the amazing views before continuing east. The day's final stop is in Luss, where you will be transported back in time and breathe in the west highland air one last time before we return to Edinburgh.
