BC

DAY ONE

A morning departure from your front door for the journey north through the Yorkshire Dales entering Scotland at Gretna, on past the city of Glasgow and along the shore of  Loch Lomond to Crianlarich and your hotel, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Today we join the Scotrail train at Crianlarich station for the journey to Oban, the lines takes you through the Pass of Brander and alongside Loch Etive.  Considered by many to be the most scenic rail journey in the world.

 

You’ll travel through a daunting landscape of mountains, steep-sided lochs, and heather moors. Keep an eye out for red deer, silhouetted on a skyline or half-hidden in the heather. You’ll pass some of the smallest, remotest stations on the network – a few buildings, and nothing more for miles around. And you’ll be glad you’ve come by train, passing through country where no roads were ever built.

 

Look out for the might Ben Lui, halfway between Crianlarich and Loch Awe on the Oban Line.

 

Oban is the major port for the Western Isles ferries and the harbour is a hive of activity.  The town has a level seafront backed by a wooded escarpment, with the skyline dominated by McCaigs Folly, resembling the Coliseum in Rome.  We have time to explore and have lunch before catching the return train.

 

DAY THREE

For our excursion today we head along Glen Dochart to Killin, with the Falls of Dochart rushing through the village, from here we drive along Loch Tay to Aberfeldy where we have a lunch break.  This afternoon we head south along the Sma’ Glen to Crieff, here we visit the Glenturret Distillery, makers of the Famous Grouse for a tour and wee dram.  Our return journey takes us along Loch Earn and Glen Ogle to Crianlarich.

 

DAY FOUR

We begin today with a journey across the wild and desolate Rannoch Moor to Fort William, passing through some of the most inhospitable country in Scotland with spectacular scenery and beautiful lochs.  We have time to explore this popular town before we are on our way south alongside Loch Linnhe to Ballachulish and Loch Leven, the Glencoe Visitor centre is our afternoon break and here you can learn all about the feuding glans and the infamous massacre.

 

DAY FIVE

This morning we depart from Bonnie Scotland and begin our journey home with comfort stops enroute.
