Private Day Trip to Argyll and West Highlands
Head west from Glasgow into Argyll and The West Highlands for a full-day private tour. Your tour starts with a 20 minute scenic ferry boat crossing that sets the tone for a day of fabulous views, space and beautiful landscapes.
Head west long the south shore of the River Clyde and to the Firth of Clyde. See this world famous river and the working towns that were built on the back of Atlantic trading.
The first stop is the elevated Tower Hill, a magnificent panorama that has a 360 degree view that takes in the upper Firth of Clyde and the surrounding mountain landscapes with their deep sea lochs.
We then cross the upper Firth of Clyde into the Highlands and the county of Argyll., the 20 minute crossing on the open deck ferry boat gives you yet another wonderful viewpoint.
Benmore Botanic Garden.
A magnificent mountainside garden, surrounded by beautiful scenery, visitors can climb through exotic plantings to a dramatic viewpoint at 450 ft (140m) where it is possible to see Holy Loch and the tops of neighbouring mountains.
An optional stop. Ardkinglas Woodland Garden. Arboretum including Champion Trees and renowned collection of Rhododendrons and Azaleas -
Inverary town and Inverary Castle.
An extended stop of up to 120 minutes if needed. The small pretty town of Inverary on the shore of Loch Fyne, is one of the best examples of an 18th century new town in Scotland. The beautiful Inverary Castle and Gardens is the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll. Looking for an invigorating option, the Inverary Castle watch tower walk is a great 90-minute return walk through woodlands and open ground to the top of Dun Na Cuaiche with fantastic views looking over Loch Fyne and Inveraray.
Just south of Inveraray, is the only township to survive substantially unaltered from amongst the many hundreds that existed across the Scottish Highlands before the Highland Clearances of the late 18th and 19th centuries.
Rest and Be Thankful.
This famous pass is 245m above sea level and it divides Glen Kinglas from Glen Croe. On top is a viewpoint with grand views where you can clearly see the old valley road which was engineered by General Wade during the subjection of Scotland following the Jacobite rebellion.
The pretty conservation village of Luss is situated on the western shore of Loch Lomond. With its prim, identical sandstone and slate cottages garlanded in rambling roses, and its narrow sandy beach this is one of Scotland’s most popular places to visit.
