Itinerario

Catturate lo spirito delle Highlands occidentale ed esplorate alcuni dei nostri laghi e castelli più atmosferici. Dopo aver passato Stirling vi fermate al Doune Castle, fortezza medievale e set del film “Monty Python e il Sacro Graal”. Da qui continuate verso nord, attraversando le meravigliose Highlands scozzesi.

Dopo pranzo, potete godervi una visita al Kilchurn Castle, situato in posizione magnifica alla testa del Loch Awe e circondato da montagne torreggianti. Da qui potete visitare Inverary, la deliziosa cittadina del XVIII secolo, imbiancata a calce, dove si trova il castello del Duca di Argyll, prima di continuare verso lo spettacolare passo che porta a Loch Lomond, chiamato “Rest and be Thankful”, fermandovi al piccolo e grazioso villaggio di Luss, situato sulle sue bellissime rive. Da qui tornate a Edimburgo, fermandovi brevemente al maestoso castello di Stirling.

Itinerary (English)

Leaving Edinburgh you travel west, past Stirling castle, to your first stop at Doune Castle.

This castle was built over 600 years ago and is still in great condition. You’ll have time to visit the castle. And if you’re a fan of 'Monty Python and The Holy Grail' or the ‘Outlander’ series, you can learn about how the castle was used as a filming set.

You then continue through Callander and cross the Highland Boundary Fault Line leaving behind the rolling farmland for the wild mountains and forests of the Highlands.

You make a short stop at Loch Lubnaig and continue over the Braes of Balquhidder.

From Balquhidder the tour winds its way through the tough knot of mountains known as Breadalbane (meaning the 'high country of Scotland').

Before lunch, you stop to see Kilchurn Castle, a magnificent ruin situated in the edge of Loch Awe and former home of the Campbells of Breadalbane.

You continue along the banks of Loch Awe through Campbell country to the picturesque town of Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne.

Here you can visit the 18th-century castle, take time to explore the town and or head to the Old Jail or maritime museum.

Leaving Inveraray, you take a drive up through the steep-sided mountains known as the Arrochar Alps to the great viewpoint at 'Rest and Be Thankful'.

From here you skirt around Loch Long and down to the "Bonnie, Bonnie Banks" of Loch Lomond. You make a short stop at the conservation village of Luss, where you can wander around taking in its quaint houses and stunning views across the loch.

From here you make your way back to Edinburgh, with a short photo stop underneath Stirling Castle.

Was so happy with this tour! Learned very much about Scottish history. Our guide was really fun to listen to and played a fantastic mix of Scottish music. Would definitely recommend!

Despite the most awful weather we had the most unforgettable trip with Ewan. He is a mine of the most fascinating facts both geographical and historical! Were we surprised? No! Rabbies never fails to lay on the most memorable trips. When my Hungarian friend lost her Samsung mobile, the staff and passengers couldnt have been more helpful. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone especially Ewan who phoned up the castle where the phone may have been lost. Sadly we did not find it. However we shall certainly be booking again with Rabbies!

Great tour with Ewan B.

Bianca Bee Posted on 05/01/2017

Hiya, let me start off by saying that I wrote a tripadvisor review and as soon as I hit sent, I realized that my phone kept spell correcting Ewans name to Evan. At least I think that was wbat happened, I wasnt able to go back and check/revise. Urgh! So apologies up front, I totes blame my phone :). Anywho! The tour was amazing and I couldnt have asked for a better guide. A fellow GoT fan with plenty of anecdotes, what?! Best birthday ever! Overall stellar storyteller who obviously loves his job very much. Totes braw, cheers EWan, its been a true pleasure. PS: He will also take great pictures of you, with plenty of candid moments captured! Bai!
