Compare the timeless beauty of Loch Lomond with the state-of-the-art Clydeside Distillery on this tour from Glasgow.
If there are two things this wee country is good at, it’s beautiful lochs and wonderful whiskies. So, on this short day trip from central Glasgow, you venture to a couple of the finest examples of what makes Scotland great.
You explore Loch Lomond, a body of water that’s attracted poets, warriors, and travellers for hundreds of years. And you visit Clydeside Whisky Distillery* where you can learn how pure Highland water is transformed into tasty, honey-coloured whisky.
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.
The 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, the 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.
