Clyde Coast Tour


This evening, I am reprising a half day tour of Scotland's Clyde Coast.

Dunure Castle

Information on the tour

First I met guests arriving off the ferry from Northern Ireland at Cairnryan, about 80 miles south of Glasgow. Next, we departed the ferry terminal about 2.30pm and then travelled north along the Clyde Coast with first stop at Dunure. Here we visited the ruined medieval castle then the small fishing harbour where we availed of light refreshment.

Next, we continued up the coast encountering deteriorating weather as we progressed through towns such as Ballantrae, Girvan, Ayr, Largs and Inverkip. Unfortunately, the poor weather prevented planned sightseeing at Gourock so we moved on through Greenock and Port Glasgow then across the Erskine Bridge and on to our destination of Balloch on the southern tip of Loch Lomond where we checked into our lodgings.

Tomorrow, we move north to Loch Ness and Grantown-on-Spey.
