from London

Tour Highlights: Open-top bus tour of Glasgow see Glasgow Cathedral, City Chambers, George Square, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow University, SECC and Riverside Museum, full day tour to Oban and the Western Highlands, accommodation for 2 nights in Glasgow.

The Victorian splendour of Scotland’s Largest City is combined with the picturesque scenery of the Western Highlands to create a wonderful short break. Contrast sophisticated Glasgow with the Lochs and Glens as you tour towards Oban. 

Day One
London to Glasgow (2 nights)

Join your comfortable express train for the smooth journey northwards to Glasgow. Your train will travel through the Midlands then skirt the Lake District. From Carlisle you’ll cross the Border into Scotland and enjoy scenic views all the way to Glasgow. On arrival in Glasgow it is a short transfer to your hotel for the next two nights.

Glasgow is one of Europe’s great tourism centres with dozens of museums and galleries, outstanding architecture and sprawling parks. There is exciting shopping to be enjoyed along the "Style Mile” and a wide range of eateries and bars to be savoured. Glasgow truly has something for everyone.

This afternoon explore more of Glasgow on an open-top bus tour. This hop-on, hop-off tour will allow you to discover more of the "dear green place” as Glasgow is affectionately known.

Overnight: Millennium Hotel (or similar)

Day Two
Western Highlands Excursion

Our journey commences with a drive along the "bonnie, bonnie banks” of Loch Lomond, known as the Queen of all the Scottish lakes. There’s a stop in the village of Luss, with it’s pretty stone cottages and wonderful panoramic loch-side vistas.

The drive continues along the entire length of the loch then by way of Glen Lochy to romantic Kilchurn Castle, which stands guard at the head of Loch Awe. Oban is a picturesque fishing port situated on the Firth of Lorne. It is from here that the ferries set sail for the islands of the Inner and Outer Hebrides. We’ll have free time to discover this charming town for ourselves.

Our next stop is Inveraray which is situated by the banks of Loch Fyne. Built by the Duke of Argyll this attractive retains much of its 18th Century charm.


During our descent of the "Rest and be Thankful” mountain pass we'll see the original road, built by General Wade, winding its way up the through the glen. Soon we reach the Argyll Forest Park where icy streams cascade down through wooded glens. Shortly we will return to the gentle shores of Loch Lomond once more and then to Glasgow.

Day Three
Explore Glasgow

Today is free for individual sightseeing or shopping. Why not take time out to visit the newly completed Riverside Museum, Glasgow’s museum of transport and travel. Nearby is the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, Scotland’s number one free visitor attraction. It’s collection features an eclectic mix of natural history, armour and art from many movements plus much, much more.

On a smaller scale The Tenement House 
provides a fascinating insight into how life was lived during the early part of the 20
th Century

If you would like to see the city from a different perspective you can enjoy a cruise along the River Clyde. As well as modern architecture to savour there are plenty of examples of Glasgow’s long tradition of engineering and shipbuilding to discover.

The train for London will depart from Glasgow Central Railway Station later this afternoon. All too soon you will have crossed the Border and speeding towards journey’s end in London.

The train journeys are unescorted.
