Explore Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, magnificent Stirling Castle and the metropolitan city of Glasgow! Start off with a relaxing cruise on Loch Lomond which, after one hour, drops you off in the pretty historic village of Luss. Here you will have some time to take a stroll around the picture-postcard stone houses, medieval church, quaint shops and cafes.  From here we will drive through rolling countryside to Stirling Castle, where you will have ample time to explore at your leisure. Head to Glasgow, where you will have the opportunity to explore Scotland's most visited museum, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Alternatively, if you would prefer to relax and take in the ambience of this friendly city, there are a number of West End pubs we can highly recommend.

1. Greenock
Your driver and guide will meet you at the port, and will show you onto the comfortable coach

2. Loch Lomond
Our first stop is in the Balloch, on the southern shores of Loch Lomond.  From here we will board a water taxi for a relaxing one hour cruise of this shimmering body of water.  You can enjoy the beautiful views of the Trossachs whilst you listen to the on-board audio, provided by renowned historian and presenter Neil Oliver. Your guide and skipper will also be on hand to answer any questions.

3.  Luss 
We will arrive in style to the cute village of Luss, where you will have a chance to stroll around and admire the picture-postcard cottages and floral displays, then enjoy a coffee from one of the local cafes.

4. Stirling Castle
Located on a high volcanic crag, Stirling Castle is visible for miles around and is one of Scotland's most famous castles.  Your guide will give you a short tour before giving you the opportunity to explore the castle by yourself.  Particular highlights include the Chapel Royal, the lavishly decorated Royal Palace and the stunning Great Hall.

5. Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
This museum is one of Scotland's cultural highlights, and is the most visited museum in the country.  Collections are diverse and include: Natural history; armour; animals; ancient Egypt and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.  With over 8000 exhibits, there is certain to be plenty to keep you amused, regardless of what you are interested in!

6. Glasgow bars
As an alternative to Kelvingrove, you may instead wish to sample more traditional Glasgow entertainment; the legendary West End pub scene!   We would recommend heading to the nearby “Highland Triangle”, which boasts the biggest concentration of proper “Scottish” bars in the city.

From here we will head back to Greenock, dropping you off in plenty time for your ship's departure.

Jump on board this 1-day shore excursion at the port of Greenock and discover the history of Stirling Castle, and the beauty of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. This tour is perfect for anyone who wants to admire beautiful scenery and learn about the heroes, tragedies and landscapes that defined Scottish history. Travel in comfort on a luxury, small-group tour with a maximum of 16 people. You will meet your guide at the cruise terminal at 8.00am and return by approximately 4.00pm.

Departing from Greenock at 8am, your route north to Stirling is one which has been used for thousands of years by invading armies. It was the northernmost frontier of the Roman empire, and was later used by the English armies.

As you approach Stirling the magnificent castle dominates your view. Known as the ‘Key to Scotland’, for centuries this was the most important castle in Scotland. To the north is the 220ft high tower of the National Wallace Monument commemorating Scotland’s great hero William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the Oscar-winning movie Braveheart.

From the castle you can look down over the scene of ‘the battle of Stirling Bridge’, where William Wallace defeated the English army in 1297. It’s an area drenched in history, and you stop at the castle with time to soak up the stories and heritage of this great site. If you'd like to enter this magnificent castle, you can purchase an entry ticket on arrival.

From Stirling you travel into the Highlands to an area known as the Trossachs National Park. Often referred to as ‘The Highlands in Miniature’, it marks the point where the Lowlands meet the Highlands.

With its shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens it’s easy to forget that this was once thought of as a dangerous frontier fought over by fierce Highland clans. You stop here for lunch in the heart of the National Park where you can enjoy the magnificent nature all around you. You can purchase lunch from a choice of local cafes, restaurants and shops or bring a packed lunch and go for a wander!

After lunch you ‘take the high road’ or back-road to Loch Lomond. This is Scotland’s largest loch and contains more than 30 islands and is over 22 miles long.

After time to explore the loch, it's just a short drive back to Greenock returning approximately 4pm.

See a bit of everything on this 8-hour private tour. Start with a short stop in the Georgian city center of Glasgow before heading to Stirling Castle, Bannockburn battlefield, the Trossachs National Park, and Loch Lomond. Hear tales of Scotland's turbulent history along the way from your driver-guide and even perhaps meet some Highland cows.

In the early morning, meet your driver-guide at the dockside. Together with your travel companions (maximum eight people), hop aboard the air-conditioned minivan and get ready for your 8-hour private shore excursion.

Start your tour with a 30-minute stop in Glasgow's Georgian city center, George Square. At one point Glasgow was the second most important city of the British Empire and remains an industrial capital of Scotland to this day. Leaving the city behind, head northeast toward Stirling and “Braveheart country.” Visit the battlefield of Bannockburn, where on the 23rd and 24th of June 1314 King Robert I “the Bruce”, defeated the armies of Edward II of England. Jump back on to the minivan and head up to Stirling Castle. Sitting high on its volcanic plug of rock, Stirling Castle was strategically the most important in the whole of the Kingdom of Scotland. After a photo stop head over the plains of Stirling and to the village of Doune for a visit to Doune Castle. Built in the 14th century, Doune Castle was home to Robert, Duke of Albany, the great grandson of Robert the Bruce. More recently the castle has been the location for Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Macbeth, Outlander, and Game of Thrones.

Continuing on, head toward the village of Callander, noted for the Romans, Rob “Roy” MacGregor, civil war, and its two resident celebrities, the Highland cows Hamish Dubh and Honey. Then it’s into Scotland's first national park, the Trossachs. A virtually unchanged landscape for nearly 300 years and made famous by the writings of Sir Walter Scott, the area is often described as the Highlands in miniature. Up and over the Duke's Pass, head down to the Victorian village of Aberfoyle for some lunch (own expense) and perhaps a little shopping.

Next, head toward the village of Balloch and the bonnie, or pretty, banks of Loch Lomond. If the weather permits, take the opportunity to enjoy a 1-hour sightseeing trip on the loch (extra cost). Leaving Balloch, through the town of Dumbarton, where Robert the Bruce died in 1329 and Mary, Queen of Scots left Scotland for France in 1547 at the age of five. Head over the river Clyde and arrive back at port eight hours later with a hundred memories and a camera full of photographs.

Spend the morning discovering the 2nd, and largest city in Scotland, Glasgow. After your panoramic tour you will have around 2 hours free time to take in the sights on foot. After lunch, it's off to the Auchentoshan distillery for your guided visit and a wee dram, then you take the short trip down to the banks of Loch Lomond and the beautiful Victorian village of Luss before heading back to your ship at Greenock

This allows you the opportunity to see a bit of everything. We start with a Glasgow tour where you will see amongst many other things, Glasgow University, the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of Scotland's four ancient universities, founded in 1451, the Kelvingrove gallery built in a Spanish Baroque style using red brick sandstone and dating from 1901.We stop for a visit to Glasgow Cathedral, the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the Protestant Reformation of 1560 virtually intact.Over the road you step back in time and discover Glasgow’s unique history with a visit to the oldest house in the city Provand's Lordship, built in 1471, and one of only four medieval buildings to survive in Glasgow. Then it's down to the Georgian city centre, George Square and free time for lunch or just a walk around. At one point Glasgow was the second most important city of the British Empire, and still remains the “Industrial Capital” of Scotland today. Leaving the city behind us, we then head northwest towards  your visit to the Auchentoshan distillery. The distillery is also known as "Glasgow's Malt Whisky" due to its close proximity to Glasgow and "the breakfast whisky" due to its sweet and delicate nature. After your visit it's back on your vehicle as we head down to the banks of Loch Lomond and the village of Luss,

A settlement has stood on this site since medieval times although much of the current village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, having been developed to house workers from nearby slate quarries.With its prim, identical sandstone and slate cottages garlanded in rambling roses, and its narrow sandy, pebbly strand, the village became a popular holiday destination during Victorian times. The 19th century parish church offers a haven of peace and has a lovely ceiling made from Scots pine rafters and some beautiful Victorian stained-glass windows. A number of early medieval and medieval monuments survive in the present churchyard, including simple cross-slabs which may date to as early as the 7th century AD, and a hogback grave-cover of the 11th century. After your visit we leave Luss behind us and it's along the banks of the river Clyde and back to your ship at Greenock
