Guided car tours
Only an hour from Glasgow, Argyll has a spectacular coastline, with mountains, glens and lochs. You might just have the opportunity to take photos of a golden eagle, deer or even porpoises. In addition, there are pretty, historic villages and towns. There is the picturesque town of Oban, where you can watch the ferries come and go to the islands. Or you could visit Oban Distillery and sample their wares!
There is also lots of history in Argyll. On our guided car tours in Argyll, you can visit Inveraray Castle or Inveraray Jail.
Nearby on Loch Awe there is St Conan’s Kirk, a stunning church built at the beginning of the 20th century. It is famous for its intriguing mix of architectural styles.
Alternatively, you might want to experience the special atmosphere of Kilmartin Glen, where you can see the standing stones and the remains of Dunadd Fort, the ancient seat of the Kings of Dalriada.
Beyond Argyll, you could visit Glasgow with its medieval cathedral, the iconic Kelvingrove Museum, and Glasgow University.
The elegant buildings in the city centre date from the late 19th century and are the backdrop for one of the best shopping centres outside London.
You could explore the Old Town of Edinburgh with its 18th century architecture. It has lots of winding cobbled streets, and speciality and gift shops. At the end of the Royal Mile is Edinburgh Castle, refuge of that tragic Queen, Mary Queen of Scots.
A bit further north there is Stirling Castle, the ancient stronghold of Scottish kings.
On the way to Stirling, you will travel through the Trossachs, an area famous for its mountains and glens.
During the journey we stop at Callander, the setting of the tv series Dr Finlay’s Casebook.
If you are an Outlander fan, you might want to visit Dundonald Castle. It was once the family home of the Royal Stewarts.
Just south of Dundonald Castle is the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum beside Burns Cottage, Alloway Kirk and Brig o’Doon. This is a must for lovers of the Burns poem Tam O’Shanter.
