Explore the West Highlands and Central Scotland with a qualified HOSTGA guide and a professional driver. You will travel in comfort and in the safety of your own group. There are tours to Argyll, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Ayrshire. All tours can be adapted to suit your interests.
Only an hour from Glasgow, Argyll has a spectacular coastline, with mountains, glens and lochs. At Loch Fyne you may well see oystercatchers and herons and you may just have the opportunity to take photos of a deer or even a golden eagle.
There are lots of pretty, historic villages and towns, including Inveraray where you can visit the stunning Inveraray Castle.
Further inland there is Kilmartin Glen with its standing stones and the remains of Dunadd Fort, the ancient seat of the Kings of Dalriada.
Nearby on Loch Awe there is St Conan’s Kirk, a stunning church built at the beginning of the 20th century, which is famous for its intriguing mix of architectural styles
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.
The Old Town of Edinburgh is fascinating with its 18th century architecture and winding cobbled streets. The Royal Mile has lots of speciality and gift shops. At one end of the Royal Mile is Edinburgh Castle and at the other end is Holyrood Palace, home of the 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.
