An excursion with contrasting scenery as you travel from the banks of the River Clyde to catch glimpses of glens, mountains and lochs – a tour with an atmosphere which is distinctly Highland and Scottish. 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 comes into view. The famous and beautiful inland loch, known as the Queen of Scottish Lakes and noted for its fishing, is the largest in Great Britain. The broad southern end, five miles in width, is enhanced by many small islands, sparkling like emeralds against a backdrop of blue waters and rugged mountains. To the north, the loch gradually narrows until only a few hundred yards of dark water separate the shores, where tree clad mountains soar skywards, creating a fjord-like atmosphere. You will stop at the exceptionally pretty village of Luss, with its flower-bedecked cottages, lying on the western shores of the loch, facing a group of wooded islands. Stroll through the village to the water’s edge or browse in the extremely well stocked gift shop. The excursion continues alongside Loch Lomond, with more fine views across to the mountains beyond. 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 along the steadily climbing scenic road 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 clear air of the mountains while taking in the panoramic views. Descending now, you’ll see the scenery is still outstanding as the road twists and turns through glen and moor, with ranges of mountains on either side. 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. All too soon, the atmospheric scenery of loch, glens and peaks slips behind as you 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 will follow the coastal road returning to Greenock. Your tour will have shown you some of the most beautiful scenery in this region of Scotland.
