Private Minibus Tour to the Highlands and West Coast from Edinburgh

At 9am, get picked up by your local driver-guide from your centrally located Edinburgh hotel. With your travel companions (maximum eight people), settle into the comfortable air-conditioned minivan for a 10-hour tour of Scotland's Highlands and West Coast.Leaving Edinburgh, see Stirling Castle from the motorway before driving into the countryside toward Doune Castle, a well-preserved 14th-century Castle set amid lovely Stirlingshire countryside. Hear the exciting history of the medieval castle and its residents. Doune Castle is the atmospheric stand-in for the fictional Castle Leoch in the T.V. show Outlander and has also been used as a filming location for Game of Thrones and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.Take advantage of a comfort stop and stretch your legs before heading into the Highlands. After passing sparkling lochs (lakes) and craggy mountains, stop for a photo at Kilchurn Castle on the banks of Loch Awe; it is one of the most photographed castles in Scotland, often appearing on calendars.Travel northwest to the picturesque town of Inverary and take the time to enjoy lunch (own expense) and perhaps visit the 19th-century jail, or Inverary Castle, which featured in Downtown Abbey. Departing Inverary, enjoy the views of Loch Fyne, famous for its fresh seafood, and then head over the mountains with a brief photo stop at the famed “Rest & Be Thankful” viewpoint.Make one final stop in the Victorian village of Luss located on the bonnie (pretty) banks of Loch Lomond, before returning back to your Edinburgh hotel roughly 10 hours after you set out.
