——-

Day 2
Saturday, 06th January 2024

After breakfast we check out of the Imperial hotel in Fort William and during pre-dawn (sunrise is at 08.45 am), we drive south along the fjord Loch Linnhe, past the Corran ferry lighthouse.

At the Ballachulish Loch Linnhe widens and there is another seafjord  – Loch Leven.
Our first photostop is to marvel at spectacular Loch Leven, where high snowcovered mountain peaks drop steep down to the sea and in the morning stillness were mirrowing in the water.

We cross the Ballachulish bridge for great views west out to the Ardgour part of the 5 West Highlands peninsulas and east inland towards the Glencoe mountains.

We leave the coast for a while to drive up through the valley of Glencoe and stop at viewpoint for the 3 sisters of Glencoe.

We head back south along the coast, have a coastal photostop near Appin, spot some Oystercatchers and marvel at Castle Stalker on its small wee island.

We take a scenic detour via the sealoch/fjord Loch Etive and after we leave the forest and drive downhill, the bright morning sunshine and mist above Loch Etive invite us for a downhill walk, where meet some of the local sheep.

Along Loch Etive with views of snowcovered Ben Cruachan we cross the Connell bridge over the “Falls of Lora”, we drive past Dunstaffnage bay with its yachts and the view over to Dunstaffnage castle, past Dunbeg and down to Oban overlooking the Isle of Kerrara and Lismore and Mull in the distance.

In the distance we can make out the Lismore lighthouse and Duart castle/home of the MacLean clan, we drive past Dunollie castle to Ganavan beach, where we have a bite to eat and have a stroll.

In Oban we enjoy the views from McCaig’s Folly/the Colloseum before a scenic downhill walk to the shops along the scenic esplanade.

We take a scenic loop along the Sound of Kerrara and head east past the south side of Loch Etive and inland along Loch Awe, where we stop for a photo enjoying the stark deep colours at Kilchurn castle.

After a mini-tour of Inveraray we enjoy the views over to Inveraray castle from the top of the bridge.

Along Loch Fyne sealoch, the colours and reflections of the mountain peaks are stunning.

We drive along the Cowal peninsula and reach the Rest and be thankful mountain pass before heading down to Arrochar, the Loch Long fjord and views of the Arrochar Alps/the Coppler.

We are leaving the Glasgow side/Firth of Clyde of the Atlantic fjords behind and travel uphill towards the Bonnie banks of Loch Lomond in Tarbert.

The narrow steep north of Loch Lomond is covered in mist, but at the central wider part of Loch Lomond the mist clears for our stop at beautiful Luss – due to the recent rain though waterlevels are higher than normal and have flooded the beautiful beach.

After a short walk through Luss village, we drive south along the bonnie Western banks of Loch Lomond and past Duck bay, before leaving the Highlands behind and entering the Lowlands in Balloch/Great Glasgow area.

We cross the River Leven with its many boats and along our journey east towards Stirling and Edinburgh we catch some of the golden hour evening afterglow of the Trossachs mountains.

When we pass through Stirling we can see Stirling castle perched on its volcanic rock and the National Wallace Monument in the distance.

Along the motorway we pass the industrial heartland of Falkirk and Grangemouth with its canal and 2 lit up Kelpies.

Half-way between Stirling and Edinburgh we see lit up Linlithgow palace before heading past the 3 Forth bridges through historic South Queensferry for a final photostop of the Victorian age (1890) built lit up Forth railway bridge before heading past Cramond towards Leith, where we say good-bye and end our 2 day tour of the Highlands & the Westcoast.



Another recent private 2 day West Highlands’ tour itinerary

his is the summary of the 2 day tour:

Due to some upcoming historic filming event and the frozen road, we walk the last 250 m towards Doune castle.

As we approach Callander, gateway to the Trossachs, snow covered Ben Ledi is shining in the morning sunshine.

We are climbing up past the Falls of Leny, Loch Lubnaig and into Breadalbane and Rob Roy MacGregor country. We drive past Lochearn, up the Glenogle pass and marvel at the snowcovered peaks of Ben Lawers glistening in the bright blue sky sunshine.

Day 2 – 19th January 2024
Drumnadrochit/Loch Ness via the Cairngorms nationalpark & Highland Perthshire back to Edinburgh

With temperatures having just crept up to above 0 C, the ground and road is still frozen, while the snow has become more slushy.

Along the shores of Loch Ness we head up north for more Nessie spotting to the Caledonian canal at Dochgarroch for some Highland Cow spotting.

The resident Highland Cows have however moved on to a new winter’s home.

At Dochgarroch though the wet snow was perfect for rolling larger snowballs and building snow-men. So Sarah and Annabelle, the 2 young sisters from hot Australia, were busy building their first ever snow-man and snow-woman.

Through Inverness, across the River Ness, along the waterfront, the historic churches, the Leakey’s second hand bookstore we head towards the harbour and Beauly Firth to see the Kessock bridge over to the Black Isle peninsula/Ross & Cromarty & the North of Scotland.

Past the MacPherson clan centre we head to the Ralia cafe for a late morning coffee.

Along the main road south we climb and the sunshiny snowcovered mountain scenery is getting ever more spectacular.
We drive past Scotland’s highest whisky distillery, the Dalwhinnie distillery and climb up the Drummochter pass with 476 m high the highest point of your 2 day tour.

We are descending into Highland Perthshire and past the House of Bruar and Blair Castle, we stop for some Highland cow viewing, before heading through Killiecrankie and the Garry bridge past Loch Faskally/Enchanted forest for a stop at Victorian Pitlochry.

We drive up towards the Blair Atholl hotel and past the Blair Atholl distillery, crossing Scotland’s longest River, the River Tay at historic Dunkeld, via Birnam with its Peter Rabbit centre we head south past Perth with its “famous great grouse/Glenturret distillery/bird on the roundabout”.

We have a quick look around at the Gleneagles distillery before heading past Andy Murray’s home in Dunblane towards Stirling, where we can view Stirling castle and the Wallace monument.

We take a photo below the volcanic rock of Stirling castle and after a brief stop at the Smith museum we head into Stirling’s Old town past the Albert hall, the Rob Roy MacGregor figure, William Wallace’s sword and the howling wolf figure who alerted the locals and saved them from the Vikings.

Up in the Old Town past the Tolbooth and James VI crowning location at the Church of Holy Rude we head past Mar’s Wark and the Argyll’s lodging up to Stirling castle with the historic cemetery on the one side and the Robert the Bruce figure on the other side, there are great views of the National Wallace monument, the Ochils and the River Forth valley.

Depending on the weather, we might discuss and decide to reverse the route and first drive the day 2 and then day 1 route (so as to maximise sunshine and minimise rain).
Also on very rainy days, we may have less outdoor sightseeing and if the group so wishes, we may visit a whisky distillery, castle, museum, etc. indoors.

Photoalbum of some of our recent Scotland Unicorn Tours:

(photos 20, 19, 18, 17, 13, 10 and 6 for the Oban, Argyll, Southwest and Westcoast and as this tour #36 covers a wide range of regions we drive through on our longer tours to the Northern Highlands images for places we visit on this tour #36 can be found on almost any of our photoalbums, including Highland Perthshire photos 23, the Trossachs photos 15 and other photoalbums)

Depending on your preferences and interests, the main places that have been agreed and discussed, the overall time we have left after our stops (especially in the winter months with shorter daylight hours), the places listed above are just a few among other nearby options, that we might be travelling through and see, stopping at and/or visiting along the way as on each of our friendly, flexible and personalised tours we maximise and offer you the best tour experience given the conditions on the day (for example if it is pouring down with rain on one side of a mountain range, we believe in offering you the alternative sunny route on the other side of the mountains, etc.)

Subject to availability possible overnight (hostel, bed & breakfast, hotel, camping) options do all exist in the area, roughly half way into our 2 day tour. As there are too many possible places to stay at, we can check room availability for your preferred option at the time of your enquiry/booking.
