It can be a bit daunting driving in an unfamiliar country on a different side of the road. You might also have limited time to explore and looking to see as much as possible. Bus tours are great fun, meeting new friends and sharing your love of travel. Here’s what you can look forward to when travelling with one-day Grayline Scottish bus tour to the beautiful areas of Doune, Loch Lomond and The Western Highlands.
Grayline Scottish Bus Tour To Doune, Loch Lomond and The Western Highlands
The first pitstop is Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe. Once the stronghold of the Campbells of Glenorchy. Built in the mid 14th century, and remained in use for 150 years, sadly abandoned by the end of the 1700’s.
Explore and discover more at Doune Castle, built in the 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany. Stroll around the grounds, down to the River Teith and woodland walk. It’s also been a film location for Outlander, Games of Thrones and Monty Python & The Holy Grail.
On arrival at Inveraray Castle, the choice is yours to either explore the castle or travel on with the bus down into the historic town of Inveraray. There you can visit Inveraray Jail, enjoy some shopping in the quaint craft and boutique shops or a traditional local fish dish in one of the small cafes or restaurants.
Last stop on this informative and interesting tour is Scotland’s first national park – Loch Lomond. Well worth getting off the bus to stroll along by the water’s edge, enjoy an ice cream and take in the beautiful views.
There are different tours to choose from including a day trip to Loch Ness – can you spot Nessie the monster? Or are you a big fan of Harry Potter? You might like to visit Alnwick Castle or more known as Hogwarts.
Most tours depart from Edinburgh. Please do book Grayline Scottish bus tours and accommodation in advance to avoid disappointment.
