Breathtaking Loch Lomond and gorgeous Luss

I will meet you at your hotel or cruise ship and we will go to Loch Lomond which is only 40 minutes from Greenock and Glasgow. We will visit the shores of this famous loch and you can go for a cruise on the water if you wish.

One of the highlights will be the village of Luss with its quaint rows of cottages bedecked with flowers. Its jetty on the loch is one of the best places to take photographs and there is a highland arts shop to browse around. I would suggest lunch or coffee at The Lodge on the Loch with a balcony overlooking Loch Lomond.

Please note that the price is per tour and not per person.


This is where the Scottish Highlands start I will collect you from the ship or your hotel. It does not take long to arrive at Loch Lomond and a visit to the small village of Luss on Loch Lomonds shore is the first stop. Luss is gorgeous with a population of 92.

We can also visit Newark Castle 14th century the home of Patrick Maxwell (not a nice man) and Dumbarton Castle where Mary Queen of Scots left for France as a young girl.

There will be plenty of stops for photographs and just taking in the scenery. This is exactly how you would imagine Scotland to be like.

It is a very relaxing tour in lovely scenery

Meeting location: I will meet you at your cruise ship at Ocean TermInal in Greenock or at your hotel in Glasgow.
I will identify myself at the reception of your hotel or by meeting you in the car park at Ocean Terminal in Greenock. Please confirm the name of your cruise ship or hotel to arrange how we meet up.

End location: I will take you back to your cruise ship or hotel. Please note that your ship may well be leaving earlier than the normal time from Greenock. If this is the case then you will arrive back at the ship in good time. If there is the possibility of it leaving later clearly I will take that into account.

The car is very comfortable. It's a 3 litre Jaguar. It has air conditioning leather seats and is naturally very safe.

A Recent Review of this tour

My tour with Bill left me feeling relaxed because I was in the care of a professional that knows his stuff. At the same time I could enjoy individual conversation, asking lots of questions without being herded onto a massive bus with no time. He seems to know lots of folks, or at least becomes fast friends, and gets the lay of the land quickly so that he can make things happen for his guests. The day was a true joy and I'd recommend him to any and all!
