Greenock lies on the southern shore of the River Clyde, which has long been the lifeblood of the area, for over 200 years the famous Clyde-built ships began their voyages out to sea. Your excursion will follow the line of the river and then into the center of Glasgow. The skyline is a mixture of architectural gems, encompassing the magnificent 12th century cathedral, the stunning Victorian cityscape and revolutionary Art Nouveau. Upon arrival into the city center, your tour guide will point out the major attractions and principal buildings, including George Square and Cathedral Square, where a stop will be made to admire the cathedral from the outside.
Beyond the cathedral, you’ll see the Necropolis – a unique, graveyard, covered with the elaborate tombs of rich industrialists and merchants. You’ll continue your stroll to see Glasgow’s oldest house dating back to 1471. In contrast, stands the modern St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art - representing the world’s major religious faiths. The coach will stop for you to take photographs of the pinnacled Gothic buildings of the second oldest university in Scotland and then continue to Greenock.
