Itinerary

Description

Discover the awe-inspiring beauty of Scotland on our brand new tour, where we experience the spellbinding splendour of its mysterious lochs. We enjoy a captivating cruise on stunning Loch Katrine and a leisurely boat trip on Loch Lomond, situated in the idyllic Trossachs National Park. We combine this lovely scenery with a man-made engineering masterpiece, the Kelpies. Standing at 100ft tall, these equine structures have become an iconic part of the landscape.

Coach Itinerary

Cruising Scottish Lochs And The Kelpies

Loch Katrine Cruise & Callander (full day)
We head to Loch Katrine, a 13km-long freshwater loch and the gateway to the magnificent Trossachs National Park. Here we enjoy a leisurely cruise on either the famous Sir Walter Scott steamship, which has ferried passengers up and down the loch since its launch in 1899, or the more intimate cruiser, the Lady of the Lake. These vessels honour the legacy of Sir Walter Scott, the Scottish poet who immortalised the lake’s beauty in his poem The Lady of the Lake, and offer a unique way to experience this stunning loch and the picturesque surrounding scenery.

We then embark on a scenic drive, passing the tranquil Loch Ard and the quaint village of Aberfoyle before arriving in Callander. This thriving town set beneath high, wooded crags is situated on the River Teith and is often described as the gateway to the Highlands. During our time at leisure we can explore the tearooms and unique shops or enjoy a peaceful stroll in the central Ancaster Square, dominated by the former St Kessog’s Church.

Loch Lomond Cruise, Luss & Inveraray (full day)
We make our way to the picturesque village of Balmaha, situated on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, and travel by waterbus to the western shore. Loch Lomond is mainland Britain’s largest expanse of fresh water, offering stunning scenery set against a dramatic mountainous backdrop. We enjoy the loch’s mesmerising natural beauty as we cruise to the conservation village of Luss, where we enjoy some free time. The view of Ben Lomond from the end of the pier is not to be missed, and there are plenty of short walking trails which explore the village and follow the banks of Luss Water.


Afterwards we rejoin the coach and travel to Inveraray, a traditional town overlooking the calm waters of Loch Fyne. Established by the 3rd Duke of Argyll in 1745, the town offers fine examples of Scottish Georgian architecture. There is plenty to explore during our time at leisure, including the neoclassical church and Inveraray jail and courthouse, now an award-winning museum which recounts prison conditions throughout the centuries.

Stirling & The Kelpies (full day)
We head to Stirling, a city steeped in history, and enjoy some time at leisure. From browsing the quirky boutiques in the picturesque surroundings of the Old Town and the Victorian Stirling Arcade, to enjoying the many historic attractions and landmarks set against stunning backdrops, there is plenty to explore here. 

Next we visit The Kelpies, the world’s largest equine sculptures and a true masterpiece of engineering, designed by Andy Scott. Their name reflects the mythological transforming beasts with the strength of 100 horses, echoing the transformational change of the region’s landscape and the strength of its communities. The story of the Kelpies is brought to life on our walking tour, which allows us to see a Kelpie from the inside for an exclusive look at their ingenuity.
