Your Tour Details
Day 1. Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, Inveraray Castle & Jail.
Perched high and proud on impressive cliffs, Stirling Castle has played a key role in Scottish history; the battles of Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn were fought within its shadow and Mary Queen of Scots lived here as child.
Made up of mountains, forests, rivers and lochs, the Trossachs National Park is a miniature version of the Highlands with historic connections to Rob Roy. The Corbetts mountains are between 2,500 and 3,000 feet, break the horizon in a zigzag manner.
The Gothic stone castle of Inveraray sits alone surrounded by 16 acres of greenery. Episodes of Downton Abbey were partly filmed at Inveraray Castle.
Within the town is Inveraray Jail, a 19th century prison with 3 foot thick walls. The jail holds 4345 former prisoner records, so there are many stories to be told by the costumed characters walking around the jail.
Day 2. Oban and Wildlife boat trip.
The seaside town of Oban is a popular destination for holidaymakers. Surrounded by mountains, the horseshoe bay is a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Enjoy a boat trip and see some of Scotland’s treasured wildlife. Expect to see dolphins, basking sharks and porpoise not to mention sea eagles, puffins and otters. The boat will circle around the rocks allowing you to see the heart-warming seals lazing around. The Corryvreckan Whirlpool is one of the largest whirlpools in the world.
