This tour is designed to show you the best of Scotland's natural beauty, this new Scottish holiday is based at the popular Winnock Hotel in Drymen, near the beautiful Loch Lomond and it explores the Secret Islands and Waterways in the region. Enjoy a boat trip on the Maid of the Forth passing under the magnificent Forth Rail Bridge to lnchcolm Island, a day to the wonderful Isle of Arran, plus a cruise on Loch Lomond, the single largest expanse of fresh water in the UK.

 

Highlights of your tour:

Day One

From your home pick-up join your coach and drive north with refreshment stops enroute. Arrive at your hotel in Drymen late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

Day Two

Our excursion today gives us the chance to cruise on the 'Maid of Forth' passing under the spectacular Forth Rail Bridge where you can get close up views of this magnificent Victorian engineering to lnchcolm Island. You will have approx. 1 ½ hours to explore the tiny but beautiful island, the 'Iona of the East' with its historic 12th century Abbey and an abundance of wildlife.
