Shore Excursions

Enjoy the essence of all that Scotland has to offer, from intriguing castles and moody mountains to mystical Highland lochs and glens.You can even enjoy the international pageant of marching bands, musicians and dancers from all over the world, all in the floodlit setting of Edinburgh Castle at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.  On a one day shore excursion from Greenock (Glasgow) your luxury mini coach and driver-guide will be waiting for you as you disembark to begin a full day tour of some of the jewels in Scotland’s crown.

There are five small group tours to choose from. Our Malt Master Whisky, Dumbarton Castle and Loch Lomond shore excursion delivers Scotland’s best: an intriguing fortress, a sojourn at the side of a celebrated loch and a whisky distillery tour where you get to create your own unique malt.

Our Highland Lochs, Glens and Castles excursion has a little of everything for the visitor who’s short on time but wants to explore Scotland. Ben Lomond is the first of many Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet) to be encountered as it towers over the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Beyond the ‘Rest and Be Thankful’ mountain pass you can explore the well-preserved town of Inveraray and its castle. There are regular breaks for photos at iconic viewpoints and refreshments at a traditional, haunted Highland pub the Drovers Inn.

During our Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and Trossachs shore excursion there’s time to explore the charming Highland village of Luss and paddle at Loch Lomond’s shores. It’s easy to see why this lush, romantic landscape has inspired painters, musicians and writers for centuries. Your driver-guide will point out our famous long-horned Highland cows, or ‘hairy coos’ as we call them. There’s enough time for a leisurely visit to one of Scotland’s most spectacular castles at Stirling, which looms over battlegrounds where the English and Scots have infamously come to blows.

Outlander fans can follow in Claire and Jamie’s footsteps on our one day tour of some of the evocative places used in the filming of the epic TV series. We’ll reveal the real Castle Leoch (Doune Castle), Lallybroch (Midhope Castle), Cranesmuir (Royal Burgh of Culross) and Fort William garrison (Blackness Castle). Time permitting we’ll stop in Glasgow to see more Outlander locations.

For something a bit special, join us on our Loch Lomond and Edinburgh Military Tattoo Excursion. Firstly we'll take in the beauty of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs and then on to the spectacular Military Tattoo with its marching bands, musicians and dancers from all over the world.

All tours will return you to your vessel at the port of Greenock.
