Day 1

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Inveraray & Loch Fyne

Begin your adventure in the beautiful Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. As we meander around the “bonnie banks” of Loch Lomond you can absorb the breathtaking views and picture perfect scenery. We'll make time to stop at the picturesque village of Luss on the shores of the loch.
We continue to weave west to Inveraray via the ‘Rest and Be Thankful’, a famous beauty spot 803 ft above sea level. This majestic sight offering the most spectacular views and a fantstic gateway to Loch Fyne.
Arriving in Inveraray, we'll pause here for a wander around Scotland's first planned town boasting fine period architecture, perhaps enjoying some lunch in the George Hotel which has an enviable reputation for ambience, friendliness and its cuisine.
If you wish to enjoy a relaxing afternoon, we recommend a tour of the grand castle and gardens here. Set on the shores of Loch Fyne, Inveraray Castle is a picture-perfect embodiment of a Scottish stately home. For the more adventurous, you have the option to hike Dun Na Cuaiche which rises over 800 feet and provides spectacular views over the castle, town and loch.
Onwards to the quaint town of Lochgilphead. This picturesque village is perched on the banks of Loch Gilp and makes the perfect venue for a photoshoot before retiring for the evening.

Day 2

Standing Stones, Oban & Glencoe

After a leisurely breakfast we head north up the west coast. Our first stop will be the ancient standing stones of Kilmartin Glen, a great photo oppportunity and one of the world’s most significant archaeological landscapes.
Moving on, we arrive in the bustling seaside town of Oban where you may enjoy a leisurely walk up to McCaig's Tower for the best views over the town and out to the isles of Kerrera and Mull.
We continue north to view Castle Stalker which has to be one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Scotland. With breath taking views over the medieval castle to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the setting is perfect for a photography shoot.
After lunch you'll be escorted to Glenfinnan Viaduct view point via the "Road to the Isles". The Glenfinnan Viaduct, located at the top of Loch Shiel, overlooks the Glenfinnan Monument and the waters of Loch Shiel. Keep your camera handy for the Jacobite steam train as it trundles over the viaduct from Fort William and Mallaig. Both the Glenfinnan Viaduct and the steam train famously featured in the second and third Harry Potter films.
Our next and final stop for the day is Scotland’s most desired location, Glencoe. With towering mountains on all sides and a bloody history to match, this is an unforgettable experience and one of the very best photo opportunities.

Day 3

Glen Etive, Dukes Pass & Stirling Castle

After breakfast, we head into the mountain wilderness to capture Black Rock Cottage sitting beneath Etive Mor, an extinct super volcano know locally as the "Great Shepard of Etive”. Here we turn off the beaten path into Glen Etive for spectacular scenery and hopefully photograph Red Deer in their natural habitat.
We now journey south into the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park Heading upland over the Dukes Pass a stunning scenic drive, with views back out over Loch Achray & Venachar from a high viewpoint. If you're looking for photograph wildlife, we could get off the beaten track and take the 7 mile long Forest Drive past three picturesque lochs – Lochan Reòidhte, Loch Drunkie and Loch Achray. It boasts breathtaking Trossachs scenery, woodland wildlife, and we may just glimpse deer amongst the trees, and – if you're lucky – spot an osprey fishing on one of the lochs.
After lunch, we spend the afternoon visiting historic Stirling Castle with a colourful history and spectacular views over the surrounding farmland to the National Wallace Monument. This is a minimum 2 bour visit to allow time to explore the castle complex and learn of the important history that makes Stirling so special.
When we are ready, we make the return journey to your preferred drop-off point in either Glasgow or Edinburgh.

This tour is flexible and can be tailored to suit your individual needs.
