Oban and the West Highlands Day Trip from Glasgow

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your full-day day tour of Scotland’s majestic Highlands and Oban begins in Glasgow, where you’ll meet your guide in the morning. Board the comfortable coach and set off through the Lowlands towards your first stop in the village of Luss on Loch Lomond. Stretch your legs and takes in the sights before continuing west into Trossachs National Park, winding through forest-covered terrain and mountain peaks.

    Cruise along the shoreline of the tranquil Loch Awe to the romantic ruins of Kilchurn Castle. As you travel, learn about battles that occurred in this region and rulers like King Robert the Bruce and Clan Campbell, who possessed the Argyll lands for centuries. 

    You’ll soon arrive in the colorful coastal town of Oban, where seafood abounds and you can indulge in a lunch of prawn sandwiches, fresh oysters or crab (own expense). Take some time to eat and explore the Victorian town. Visit McCaig's Tower, a granite tower in Roman style that offers stunning views of the bay. Don't hesitate to climb to the top to see all the way to the Isle of Mull!

    From here, make your way back to Glasgow, stopping at the white-washed village of Inveraray. Explore the town’s shops, purchase some local sweets and admire sweeping views of Loch Fyne before heading on. Your tour ends back at the original departure point in Glasgow.

    The bus trip was most relaxing and the scenery fantastic. Our driver was also professional and the bus clean and very comfortable. Well worth the journey and the entrance into Oban was something quite spectacular.
