What we will do
  • We leave Oban behind us on a coach and drive along the picturesque rugged coast of the large fjord known as Loch Linnhe, which develops inland generating magnificent views.
  • We reach the Glen Nevis valley, one of the most fascinating in Scotland dominated by the Ben Nevis, the tallest mountain in the region.
  • We arrive at the foothills of Mount Aonach Mor, where we enjoy a ride on a spectacular cable car climbing towards the top covering almost 2.5 km above breath-taking scenery.
  • Once there, we remain enchanted by the fabulous views of the Ben Nevis at 1344 metres asl provided by the restaurant's panoramic terrace. We are offered a delicious snack with coffee and biscuits.
  • We climb down by cable car and make a stop in Fort William, a lovely town overlooking Loch Linnhe where we have some free time available for lunch.
  • We continue our excursion and drive along Glencoe Valley, surrounded by imposing mountains and where we can admire some of the most enchanting natural landscapes in the Highlands. It was here that the epic battle between the MacDonald and Campbell clans was fought in 1692. We make a short stop to fully enjoy the fantastic mountain views very popular with excursionists and trekking enthusiasts.
  • It is now the turn of the remote and surreal Rannoch Moor, a large stretch of moors, heather fields and pine trees swept by the wind.
  • We arrive in Tyndrum, which developed during the gold rush of the 19th century and where we make a stop before heading back.
  • On our way back to Oban, we spot the ruins of Kilchurn castle, dating back to the 13th century and one of the most photographed in Scotland as it reflects into Loch Awe surrounded by mountains.
