Your Itinerary

Monday: Depart from your home area travelling to Northern England, through Southern Scotland and along the shore of Loch Lomond to the Crianlarich Hotel.

Tuesday: We join the Scotrail train at Crianlarich station for the ride to Oban. The line takes us through the Pass of Brander and alongside Loch Etive. 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 we catch the return train.

Wednesday: 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 our 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 a wee dram. Our return takes us along Loch Earn and Glen Ogle to Crianlarich.

Thursday: Today we begin with a ride across the wild and desolate Rannoch Moor to Fort William, passing through some of the most inhospitable country in Scotland, with spectacular scenery and lonely 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 clans and the infamous massacre. We return over Rannoch Moor to Crianlarich.

Friday: After breakfast we begin the journey home.
