Description

Start your day with a pickup by your driver at the door of the cruise arrivals hall. Climb aboard the minibus with your personal group and embark on a very scenic and memorable tour. This tour is fully flexible, you can suggest adjustments and changes to the tour itinerary, even on the day. If time and geography allow, your driver will strive to meet your requests. Luss Enjoy your first stop after a 45 minute drive from Greenock in the village of Luss on the Western short of the Loch Lomond. Walk past the sandstone and slate cottages to the pier with it's wonderful views across to Ben Lomond and up and down the Loch. A very short walk and into the atmospheric Luss Graveyard which has graves dating back to the 5th and 6th centuries.. Marvel at a Viking grave from the 11th century complete with a Viking Hogback Stone on this 30 minute stop. Tyndrum A scenic drive of 60 minutes as we head north and into the Highlands proper and start transitioning into a bigger and wilder landscape. Passing through Tyndrum, altitude increases and we arrive at the elevated Loch Tulla viewpoint, a great place to enjoy the Highland expanse. Rannoch Moor One of the last wilderness areas in Europe, a vast area of bogs, small lochs (lochans), streams and rock outcrops. There are numerous stopping points where you can walk away from the road and soak in the atmosphere of this remarkable place. Our return to Tyndrum gives a far bigger and grander view of the Rannoch Moor wilderness. At Tyndrum we turn right into the beautiful county of Argyll. Kilchurn Castle. Built around 1450, this long abandoned castle is still very impressive, it sits at the top of Loch Awe ringed by mountains both close by and distant makes for a very memorable visit. There are Highland Cattle living in the vicinity and hopefully they will be visible and very close when you view the castle. 30 minute visit Inverary. Inverary, on Loch Fyne is a lovely village in a grand scenic setting on the western shore of Loch Fyne, as well as strolling in the village, a walk to the picture perfect Inverary Castle is very popular for visitors. There are shops worth browsing for souvenirs, an excellent whisky shop which will let you sample some quality Scotch. There are also some food takeaways, although tour guests love the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar which we pass on our way to our next stop, the take-away fish and chips is the favourite and siting at the outdoor tables with wonderful views of the Loch and Mountains somehow makes them even more delicious. 30 minute stop. The Rest and be Thankful. The famous pass called The Rest and Be Thankful divides Glen Kinglas from Glen Croe. On top is a viewpoint with beautiful views of Glen Croe where you can clearly see the old valley road which was engineered by General Wade during the subjection of Scotland following the Jacobite rebellion. 10 minutes Return to Greenock 50 minutes scenic drive. This tour is fully customisable.
