Pivate coach transport from Glasgow Airport to Loch Lomond

My husband and I will be traveling to Glasgow Airport on Aug 31st staying in Scotland through Sept 4th. We will then travel by train from Edinburgh to London by train. We don't wish to rent a car for a self-drive tour of the area and do not wish to be part of an escorted tour either. Can anyone suggest a means of hiring a private coach to get us from Glasgow airport and take us to Loch Lomond area (we have reservations at Stonefield Castle Hotel). Would we then be able to take local transporation to see the sights in that area? We will then make our way to Edinburgh for a nights stay and will need transportation to there as well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Stonefield Castle is near Tarbert on Loch Fyne,a long way from Loch Lomond.

Local transport is pretty sparse and renting a car for your whole trip would make sense.

Ok, thank you. I guess I need to go back to reviewing my map and determining distances between spots we want to visit. :-) It seems that renting a car is going to be the most appropriate option. .

That hotel is in a beautiful, but remote spot. There is a coach service from Glasgow, the timetable is here.

Note that it's a three hour journey from Glasgow, and you first need to get from the airport into the city, this service doesn't go by Glasgow airport. You'll be very restricted out there without a car.
