We've improved this itinerary for you, so please note that starting from 1st April 2023, this itinerary will look different.
Students, seniors over 60, and children between 5 and 15 (unfortunately, we don't carry children under 5 years old).
You leave Glasgow and travel the short distance towards Loch Lomond. At over 22 miles long, it’s one of the largest lochs in Scotland.
Our first stop is on the southern shore of the loch where you can join a one-hour boat cruise. While sailing along, you enjoy views of the surrounding mountains and castles along the shoreline. You also venture out towards Inchmurrin Island, the largest of Loch Lomond's 33 islands and home to the ancient remains of Lennox Castle, a hiding spot for Robert the Bruce before he was to become King of Scotland.
Back on dry land, our next stop is lunch at the picturesque village of Luss. Here, you can walk around the centre and take photos of quaint cottages, or stroll along a little beach on the bank of Loch Lomond and admire the view of Ben Lomond.
After a day of mountain air, lochs and forests; you travel back to Glasgow’s Clydeside Whisky Distillery*.
Located in the famous Queen’s Dock, this state-of-the-art distillery brings the production of single malt back to the city. Here, you can go on a tour and see for yourself how this whisky is distilled from grain to glass. If you’re not a whisky fan, your friendly guide can drop you off at Buchanan Bus Station earlier, so you can explore the city’s vibrant bars and music venues at your own pace.
*Itinerary and distillery visits are subject to change.
The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.
We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.
Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.
If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies. 100% charges are applicable, and you will not be entitled to a refund or alternative.
We have a cancellation period of 48 hours for our one day tours, 15 days for two to nine day tours, and 21 days for 10+ day tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.
Your tour will always follow the itinerary as closely as possible. While there are ongoing coronavirus restrictions throughout the UK and Ireland, itineraries are more likely to change than usual as opening hours and capacities at many visitor attractions are reduced and subject to change. Your driver-guide will keep you up to up to date on the road, and we'll try to get in touch about any large changes prior to your departure.
Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.
Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.
We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.
We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.
You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.
We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.
You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.
Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.
We advise you take out travel insurance.
You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
