Today you will wake up away from the city buzz on the banks of Loch Lomond. After breakfast and checking out, take your luxury Land Rover north following the shores of the loch. You will soon be heading into the real mountains of Scotland. Scottish Highland scenery is beautiful and you are heading towards the most beautiful glen of them all, Glencoe.

Here films such as King Arthur, and James Bond Skyfall have been shot and with good reason. A short detour down Glen Etive takes you to the filming location of James Bond's Skyfall for an iconic photo recreation. 

Heading on out of the glen you will drop down to the sea lochs - these were formed tens of thousands of years ago by huge glaciers and are often known as the Scottish Fjords for their similarity to Norway's Fjords. 

Your destination today is Oban - one of Scotland's most charming West Coast towns. It is here that the ferries depart for the Hebrides and the islands.

Waking up in the West Coast of Scotland is a real treat. On your doorstep stands an exciting and beautiful playground waiting to be explored. Today you can take the car and explore by quiet roads, or even better head out onto the water. We recommend chartering a sail boat and heading out for a picturesque day on the water between the islands. Alternatively you may wish to take the 'Cal Mac' (as the local say), ferry to the Isle of Mull. Mull is a wildlife heaven and utterly beautiful.
