Hi all, I'm currently planning a 2 week holiday in Scotland next April. At this stage, my husband and I are aiming to drive from Oban to Stirling on a Saturday - but we have lots of stops on this day. It will be a long drive, and we are prepared for this as it will our second last full day in Scotland. No jet lag, and we will have just had 2 nights in Oban.
During this day, we are hoping to take a cruise on Loch Lomond, and I wondered if I could get some opinions on which is the best for scenery and just a general sense of enjoyment. Not sure if that makes sense! The options so far are:
I originally thought we could take a cruise from Tarbet or Luss and then head down to Balloch for a walk around town/wander around the water front for another hour or so. Maybe even have some afternoon tea there (any suggestions?).
We will probably only leave Balloch at 5pm, and we were thinking that we could either go straight to Stirling, or we could detour via Trossach. I wasn't sure if there were any nice places to stop for views of Loch Achray and Loch Venachar - and if so, is it worth it? I believe that the sun sets approx 8:30pm in late April.
Thanks for any help or suggestions you can make. It really helps with the planning process!
