An appreciation of Scotlands past, it's scenery and it's national drink, whisky


We'll venture forth to Dumbarton Castle for a bit of History then to the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Breathtaking scenery no matter the weather. A visit to the loch side village of Luss for photo opportunities and touristy things, then after lunch to Glengoyne Distillery for a wee bit of a edutainment on how Scotch whisky is made and how to appreciate it.

This excursion will give you a taste of your Scottish surroundings in a day.
I'm flexible regards the itinerary so if there's something or somewhere you really must cross off your Scottish bucket list just ask. I'm an easy going fella.
