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.

    Scotland has some stunning landscapes and incredible history. I would love to fly a small jet plane over the northern islands to discover all of the largely unexplored beauty of the Scottish highlands and coastline.
