Itinerary:

  1. Departing your port in Greenock, we travel north and soon arrive at the shores of Loch Lomond at the picturesque village of Luss. Gaze over the shimmering Loch Lomond, which is Scotland’s largest freshwater loch, and enjoy the views of our most southerly Munroe, Ben Lomond.
  2. We then journey through the Arrochar Alps and make a stop at Rest and Be Thankful. The mountain pass was given this name by the weary road workers who built the pass in 1753. Here we can stop and enjoy the stunning views of Glen Croe before setting off towards Inveraray.
  3. Inveraray is a picturesque fishing village built around the same time as the famous Inveraray castle in the 18th century. We make a visit to the castle, which is the seat of the Campbell clan. Walk through the romantic castle gardens before taking a tour through the castle itself and discovering the armoury and tapestry rooms. We then have lunch at the famous George Hotel before stepping into the 19th-century Inveraray Jail.
  4. Experience what life was like for the 19th-century prisoners and explore the atmospheric historic buildings at your leisure and meet the costumed characters who animate the past in this unique living museum.
  5. When your tour ends, your driver will then drive you back to your port.
