Step aboard the Midland Pullman for a truly amazing and unusual day tour as we travel over the world-famous West Highland line, featuring some of the most dramatic and spectacular scenery in Scotland with magnificent waterfalls and peaceful lochs to Oban for an afternoon sightseeing break.

Our train takes the route around the north of Glasgow and along the banks of the Clyde to join the West Highland line at Craigendoran, thence crossing viaducts as the line twists and turns passing Loch Long and Loch Lomond, we climb into the highlands with stunning views of magnificent mountains and one memorable sight following another as we pass along tranquil Loch Awe and through the Pass of Brander to Oban for a two-hour break.

Oban is a bustling port with the station situated close to the town centre and affords magnificent views across the bay to the islands of the Inner Hebrides. It has become a magnet for tourists and is known as the holiday capital of the Highlands and seafood capital of Scotland. There are plenty of small galleries and independent stores to browse as well as the centrally located Distillery with excellent visitor tours. Perhaps wander along the seafront to the ruined Dunollie Castle and the sandy beaches beyond or climb to McCaig’s Tower which dominates the syline.
