1st stop

Loch Lomond

We head deep into Scotland’s first National Park via the ‘bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond. This is Britain's largest freshwater loch and is also, in the opinion of many, it's most beautiful. We will have time to explore the picturesque village of Luss situated on the western shores of Loch Lomond. Luss was originally known as Clachan Dubh, 'the dark village', because of its mountain setting; the shade from the surrounding mountains mean that there are less hours of daylight which is particularly noticeable during winter time. The village can be distinguished by the cottages that were originally built to house workers in the cotton mill and slate quarries of the 18th and 19th centuries.

2nd stop

The Rest and Be Thankful Pass

The Rest and be Thankful mountain pass is a very scenic road and it brings you through some of the most beautiful countryside Scotland has to offer. The highest point on the road is 803ft above sea level and divides Glen Kinglas from Glen Croe. From the viewpoint of this famous beauty spot you can see the old valley road, engineered by General Wade during the subjection of Scotland following the Jacobite rebellion.
A stone was erected to commemorate the completion of this military road in 1750.

3rd stop

Inveraray Castle & Gardens

Romantic Inveraray Castle & Gardens on the shores of Loch Fyne is without doubt one of Scotland’s finest stately homes. The landscape around Loch Fyne is an area of spectacular natural beauty and the ruggedness of the highland scenery serves as a spectacular backdrop for the sheltered tidal Loch, beside which nestles the present Castle built between 1745 and 1790. The castle is the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Argyll, Chiefs of the Clan Campbell, whose family have resided in Inveraray since the early 15th century. Its fairytale façade house's an equally enchanting interior.
Explore the famous Armoury Hall containing some 1300 pieces including Brown Bess muskets, Lochaber axes and 18th century Scottish broadswords. They can also view preserved swords from the Battle of Culloden. The fine State Dining Room and Tapestry Drawing Room contain magnificent French tapestries which were woven especially for the Castle, fabulous examples of Scottish, English and French furniture and countless other precious artworks.

4th stop

Argyll Forest Park

The Argyll Forest Park was established in 1935 and is Scotland's oldest Forest Park with many claiming it to be the most beautiful. This is a place of craggy peaks and hidden glens, peaceful sea lochs and rushing rivers. It owes its rugged scenery to being at one end of the Highland Boundary Fault, the great crack in the Earth’s surface that marks the line between Lowland and Highland Scotland. One of the most beautiful locations of the Park is freshwater loch of Loch Eck. We will stop at Jubille Point to take in the atmosphere and enjoy gorgeous views across the loch.

5th stop

Return to Cruise Ship

The onward journey takes us past the Holy Loch and across the Clyde by ferry.
