SECRET ISLANDS & WATERWAYS

 

A tour THAT is designed to show you the best of Scotland’s natural beauty, this new Scottish holiday is based at the popular Winnock Hotel in Drymen, near the beautiful Loch Lomond and it explores the Secret Islands and Waterways in the region.  Enjoy a boat trip on the Maid of the Forth passing under the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge to Inchcolm Island, a day to the wonderful Isle of Arran, plus a cruise on Loch Lomond, the single largest expanse of fresh water in the UK.

 

Highlights

 

Cruise on the Maid of Forth   |   Inchcolm Island   |   Isle of Arran   |   Cruise across the Firth of Clyde   |   Brodick Castle   |   Loch Lomond Cruise  |   Luss   |   Balloch

 

DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service and drive north with refreshment stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel in Drymen late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Our excursion today gives us the chance to cruise on the ‘Maid of Forth’ passing under the spectacular Forth Rail Bridge where you can get close up views of this magnificent Victorian engineering to Inchcolm Island.  You will have approx. 1½ hours to explore the tiny but beautiful island, the ‘Iona of the East’ with its historic 12th century Abbey and an abundance of wildlife.

 

DAY THREE

A full day to the wonderful Isle of Arran, cruise across the Firth of Clyde from Ardrossan to Brodick, the island’s capital, often described as ‘Scotland in Miniature’.  Arran has a blend of Highland and Island scenery with peaks and deep glens, contrasting with its heather clad moorlands.  We will also have time in Brodick with an included visit to the gardens at Brodick Castle.

 

DAY FOUR

Today we head to Balloch for a two-hour cruise discovering the legends and secrets of the islands of Loch Lomond.  The cruise takes us past Cameron House Hotel and the world-renowned Loch Lomond Golf course, continuing onwards through the ‘Narrows’ with views of magnificent Ben Lomond and onto the historic conservation village of Luss before returning to Balloch.

After our final breakfast, we must bid farewell to Bonny Scotland and begin our journey home with refreshment stops enroute.
