Many Cruise Liners are now making regular visits to Scotland and Great Scot Tours has become a much requested private tour arrangers for small groups.
A classic one day tour around Scotland’s first National Park. See Loch Lomond’s natural beauty and the Rob Roy country of the Trossachs. We leave your cruise ship at Greenock, home to famous Scots James Watt and Captain Kidd the pirate, and travel to Loch Lomond which is Scotland's largest loch by surface area. We visit the Village of Luss and then continue to the Trossachs area: a wonderful mountain and loch area. Take lunch at the town of Callander and visit some woollen mills and shops. After lunch we depart for Stirling Castle, home in the 15th and 16th centuries of the Stuart Kings, passing the famous Doune Castle which has been the setting for filming of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Outlander and Game of Thrones.
This is the magnificent architectural fantasy of the 3rd Marques of Bute (1847-1900). The Marble Hall with the azure-vaulted roof and constellations. Zodiac windows with crystal stars beam down like streaming comets onto the walls and floors.
The marble staircase takes you to the upper bedrooms and Horoscope Room. The vaulted ceilings with thousands of stars, twinkling as the sunlight catches each crystal. The master bedroom has a painted freeze on the life of St Margaret, and finally The Marble Chapel: Russian Icons. This is Scotland's Sistine Chapel.
