We're considering a Rabbies day Tour in Sept. (Oban, Glencoe, Highland Lochs & Castles), starting from Glasgow. Anyone experience this tour? It mentions highlights (Inveraray, Glencoe, Loch Awe, Res t& Thankful Pass, Oban, Loch Lomand Park), but I cannot tell from the descriptions, where you stop, and how much time you are allowed. I only found that it stops in Oban for lunch. 30 min? 1 hour? Do you have time in Glencoe to visit the museum or walk the village? Is there enough time to get out of the bus, and take short walks / photo opportunities? OR is the rest of the time spent just viewing from the bus & listening to the tour guide? It states entry fees are not included... but I did not see a list of any sites that would require entry fees, so am wondering if there are any additional stops besides lunch.
If not Rabbies, any other recommendations with a similar itinerary?
Also curious how far in advance you need to book these day tours. It appears they are still open, even for the crowded summer months. We have a 2-3 day window in Glasgow or Edinburgh, and it would be great to watch the general weather pattern the week before booking, but would hate to lose the opportunity if they fill in advance. Understood to always bring rain gear -- but general weather outlook might guide which day we choose.
