Flying at heights between 500 and 5,000 feet the preferred route will take you down the Clyde Estuary past Loch Long and Dunoon towards the south west and the town of Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. Look out for Toward and Rothesay castles. Views of Arran and the Mull of Kintyre should be available as you make your way past Loch Striven towards the Kyles of Bute and the village of Tighnabruaich - with great visibility you can even see Northern Ireland !
Your flight will then turn to the north up Loch Fyne towards Otter Ferry on the Cowal peninsula and at this point the islands of Jura and Mull can usually be seen to the West. Look out for Minard Castle on the west coast of Loch Fyne. As the flight approaches Inveraray and the magnificent castle to the north it will turn east towards the Rest and Be Thankful and "The Cobbler" mountain located in the Arrochar Alps. Scores of stunning mountains and glens will unfold below and Loch Goil, Loch Eck and Loch Long should all be enjoyed. On a good day Ben Nevis can be seen to the North.
Approaching Tarbet on Loch Lomond the flight swings southward to give you a magnificent view of Ben Lomond and a low level cruise down the world's most famous loch towards the islands to the south.
