Leaving Peebles head west towards the city of Glasgow, skirting the city and continuing over the Erskine Bridge across the River Clyde to the Loch Lomond area. If you fancy getting out on the water you might like to take a cruise, or simply stop in the village of Luss for a look around and a walk at the shore.

Follow the main road along the loch to Tarbet where you turn west through Arrochar and by Loch Long. The road takes you over the pass known as the Rest and Be Thankful to Loch Fyne. A stop at the Loch Fyne Oyster Bar is highly recommended for excellent local shellfish and smoked salmon. You carry on to the small town of Inveraray on the shores of the loch where you might like to visit Inveraray Castle, seat of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell.
