What To Expect

Doune Castle
This beautiful 14th century castle will be well recognised due to its status in the film and TV industry. Doune Castle* was used in the filming of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It was also used to represent part of Winterfell in season 1 of Game of Thrones and is the fictional Castle Leoch in Outlander. Monty Python’s very own Terry Jones narrates the audio guide, which we recommend to our passengers to highlight some of the subtleties and secrets of the castle.

Kilchurn Castle
On departure from Doune Castle, our driver will aim to stop at convenient services for comfort and refreshment. The journey continues past plenty of dramatic scenery with an abundance of ‘Lochs, Glens and Bens’. The coach will stop for a photo opportunity at Kilchurn Castle on the banks of the beautiful Loch Awe; this is one of the most photographed Castles in Scotland, often used in calendars and postcards.

• Admission Ticket Free

The next stop is the highland town of Inverary. Your driver will give you a quick driven tour of the town so that you may get your bearings. Once off the coach, the opportunity is there to explore Inverary Castle* (featured on the 2014 Downton Abbey Christmas special), the old Jail* or merely relax in the town with some lunch and a drop of whisky (own expense)

2 hours • Admission Ticket Free

Luss is a small and classical highland village on the ‘bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond’. This body of water is well known through Scottish song, poetry and folklore. You will then pass Stirling Castle and be returned to Edinburgh for city centre drop-offs.
