Holiday Itinerary


From local departure points we head northward to our overnight stop.


Across the Scottish border, making a short stop at Moffat before heading through the hills to reach Gourock for our short ferry sailing across the Firth of Clyde to Dunoon, staying at the Esplanade Hotel for four nights.


A day at leisure.


Discovering more of Argyll’s beautiful scenery on a full day tour, beside Loch Eck to the shores of Loch Fyne and Inveraray, planned in the 18th century by the Duke of Argyll. Then through a mountainous landscape to Oban, a major Scottish tourist centre and ferry port for the Hebrides, overlooked by McCaig’s Tower, an imitation of the Colosseum at Rome.


A memorable day, by winding roads through the hills, and by ferry across the scenic Kyles of Bute, to explore the Isle of Bute. We have a  sightseeing stop at the principal town of Rothesay, which has a charming old fashioned atmosphere, then take a circular tour round the island before returning to the mainland. Next we follow a road which is renowned as one of the most spectacular in Scotland, to visit the idyllic coastal hamlet of  Tighnabruaich where sailing is the principal activity.


Return by ferry across the Firth of Clyde and follow the coastline for views across to the Cumbrae Islands and Arran. We make a short stop in Robert Burn’s Dumfries before we leave Scotland behind for an overnight stop in the north of England.


Our tour draws to a close with the journey homeward.
