The Falkirk Wheel & Kelpies Tour  (tickets to both included)

The Falkirk Wheel is a wonder of ingenuity and engineering; the world’s only rotating boatlift which allows boats to be lifted between two levels to join two canals together. We will experience this first-hand with a boat trip on the canal and lift.  After lunch, we keep with the canal theme with a visit to the Kelpies.  They are the world’ largest equine sculptures, modelled on the Clydesdale horses which pulled the barges and played a vital role in Scotland's industrial past.  They take on the name 'Kelpies' from mythical creatures that reside in lochs and rivers with the strength of 100 horses.  A day to be inspired by both modern creations and industrial heritage.

Loch Lomond, the Trossachs & Steam Ship Cruise (ticket included)

We start our stunning tour to the Trossachs with a visit to Callander, a popular tourist town situated on the River Teith and which is often described as 'the gateway to the Highlands'.  This lovely old town is crammed with teashops and cafes and an eclectic mix of craft and gift boutiques.  Continuing our scenic tour through the Trossachs National Park, we reach Loch Katrine where you will have time for some lunch before our included cruise on the steam ship Sir Walter Scott.  Sailing on this beautifully restored, historic steam ship is the ideal way to enjoy the stunning scenery celebrated in Sir Walter Scott's poem ' The Lady of the Lake'.  After disembarking, we continue our journey over the 'Dukes Pass' to Loch Lomond, where we will have a short stop on the 'Bonny, Bonny Banks'.

Glen Coe & Oban

Today we experience some of the most dramatic Highland landscapes in Scotland.  We start by climbing to the wild expanse of Rannoch Moor, a vast stretch of land composed of blanket bog, lochans, rivers, and rocky outcrops, and one of the last remaining wildernesses in Europe.  Next, we descend from the Moor into Glen Coe, guarded by the conical peak of ‘Buchaille Etive Mor’ and flanked by towering cliffs and buttresses.  There will be time to stop and take photos, or just take in the stunning scenery.  Then we take the coast road to Oban, where there will be time to explore the many shops, or perhaps visit the War and Peace Museum or Oban Distillery.  We return to the hotel in the afternoon via Loch Etive, Loch Awe and Glen Lochy.

Dundee Discovery and V&A Museum (Discovery ticket included)

When we heard that the V&A Museum, the world’s leading museum of art and design, was opening its much-anticipated £80 million museum in Dundee, we just had to go and look!  We have included it as a first for coach tour customers in 2019 and will give you a chance to see designs from Scotland’s past, present and future.  Perched on the banks of the Tay, this impressive building is designed to make it look like it is over the water.  Alongside, on the Dundee waterfront, is the Royal Research Ship (RRS) Discovery; the ship built in Dundee in which Captain Scott of the Antarctic carried out his heroic voyage.  Entry to this fascinating ship and Discovery Point museum are included on this exciting new excursion.
