Clyde CruisingWritten by Administrator
Take in the sites whilst cruising the “Wonderful Clyde”. See stunning views like the Isle of Arran, Millport and more. The trip is best undertaken within the full 4 days however the trip can be easily altered to meet your individual requirements.
Starting from the Glasgow area. Go to Ardrossan to get the ferry to Arran. In Arran you can visit Brodick Castle, hire a bicycle, get up close to the local wildlife or try and tackle the famous “Goat Fell”. If you would like to see more of the island known as “Scotland in miniature”, staying overnight may be beneficial.
Start the day in the small town of Largs: Have a walk to the Pencil Monument, Visit Vikingar! And see the Neolithic tombs. In the afternoon take the ferry crossing over to Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae. It is very popular to have a picnic or barbeque on one of the beaches whilst having a cycle around the island.
Take the Ferry from Wemyss Bay to Rothesay on the Isle of Bute. Rothesay Castle is a a real gem with a moat. Big and small kids alike will enjoy climbing through a “trap door” to see the dungeon. The Island is also home to Ardencraig Gardens, a real treat for botanists.
Travel to loch Katrine, known for its beauty where you can take a ride on the steamship “Sir Walter Scott”
*If you feel really adventurous and have a bit more money to spend, A trip doon the water on the Waverley Paddle Steamer is a must (The Waverley is the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world.)
