    hrs Estimate Duration

This is an excursion with contrasting scenery as you travel from the banks of the River Clyde to catch glimpses of glens, mountains, and lochs. Cross the impressive Erskine Bridge, with views of the city of Glasgow in the distance and travel through rural areas that make up the outer districts of the metropolis. Soon Loch Lomond, known as the ‘Queen of Scottish Lakes’, comes into view. You’ll stop at the pretty village of Luss, and stroll through the village to the water’s edge, or browse in the well-stocked gift shops. From Luss, the magical loch is your constant companion as you journey further northwards passing through the villages of Tarbet and Arrochar.


Your route then takes you to the summit viewpoint of ‘Rest and Be Thankful’, a name which speaks for itself. Here there will be a photo stop and a chance for you to enjoy the panoramic views. Descending now, you’ll see more contrasting views as you now journey along the upper reaches of Loch Fyne and through the Argyll Park to travel alongside the relatively small Loch Eck. You’ll then travel around the head of Holy Loch and into Hunter’s Quay and the terminal of Western Ferries. The 20-minute crossing of the Firth of Clyde will bring you to the Clyde-side town of Gourock. From here you’ll follow the coastal road returning to Greenock.
