    When we do our round circle, Oban-Inverness-Edinburgh, we ALWAYS detour round through Glen Coe... simply stunning! You can't miss it!

    As for Oban, you jammy peeps! Me & The Wife love it there, often use it as a base for exploring the West coast & the islands...

    A good touristy route with great views and driving is, get the A82 from Glasgow along Loch Lomondside, carry on to the A83 which take's you toward's the rest and be thankful and Inveraray, Plenty of thing's to do in Inveraray (castle, jail etc) from here on it really depend's on how much time you have or how many mile's you want to cover. If you are feeling fresh carry on down Loch Fyne towards Lochgilphead(otherwise take the A819 towards Dalmally, then turn left onto the A85 towards Oban), then take the A816 towards Oban, great twisty road and some stunning view's. From Oban head out on the A85 towards Connel, again depending on how fresh you feel, if you want to go the short route to Inverness go over the Connel Bridge onto the A828 and head for fort william, but IMHO the best way to go is via the A85 to Tyndrum then left onto the A82 and through Glencoe - one of the best road's in Britain once you reach Ballachuilish follow the A82 north over the bridge for fort William and the north....
