Greenock Shore Excursions
Shore Tours from Greenock, Scotland
Having sailed down the Clyde estuary and seen some of our country’s beautiful scenery, you can now embark on a selection of our many fantastic one day Greenock shore excursions we have on offer. Your cruise ship will dock at Greenock Ocean Terminal where you will disembark from your vessel and be met with a warm welcome from Graeme, your Kilted Piper Tour guide. Let the excursion begin as we leave the old industrial shipbuilding town of Greenock behind.
A short 26 mile journey eastwards from Greenock lies Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow. Explore the Gothic architecture of the ancient Glasgow Cathedral (one of the Glasgow locations for the series Outlander), also known as St Kentigern’s or St Mungo’s Cathedral. Take a short walk across to the oldest house in the city, the Provand’s Lordship built in 1471. This vibrant city has spectacular architecture, including works of Charles Rennie Macintosh. Steeped in history of manufacturing industries, shipbuilding and artists this city has it all. You can explore the Riverside Transport Museum, Kelvingrove Art Galleries and Glasgow Science Centre. These are just a sample of the vast selection of tourist attractions on offer. We can definitely find locations in Glasgow to suit all needs.
From the old city centre of Glasgow we can take a short drive to the city of Stirling. Famously known as “the Gateway to the Highlands” this old ancient town, now granted city status by the Queen to mark her Golden Jubilee, has an abundance of attractions to visit. This can include Historic Stirling Castle, the Bannockburn Centre or the National William Wallace Monument.
A short trip from here you can either visit Deanston Whisky Distillery, Doune Castle or head off to the Trossachs National park, Loch Lomond to experience one of the most beautiful lochs in the world. In addition to these we can offer trips to The Falkirk Wheel, The Kelpies and the Helix centre all within close proximity of one another.
Exciting news for 2018, we are offering you brand new excursions from Greenock, including golf, whisky or Isle of Cumbrae tour in a one day trip down the Firth of Clyde coastline. Enjoy a morning round of golf in Largs followed by a visit to Portencross Castle to enjoy the iconic views of the Isle of Arran. You may either choose to visit Auchentoshan Whisky Distillery or take a nice stroll down the promenade in Largs.
Fancy an adventure to the enchanting Pucks Glen?. Get your hiking shoes on as we take a 15 minute ferry crossing from Gourock to Dunoon in Argyll. Enjoy a charming forest walk through mystical waterfalls and fairy pools. Enjoy lunch at a local eatery before travelling through the “rest and be thankful” which divides Glen Kinglas from Glen Croe. In the afternoon you can enjoy a visit to Luss, a quaint village on the bonnie bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. If you are still feeling energetic then why not visit Dumbarton Castle and climb over 500 steps to view some fantastic photographic views of the Clyde Estuary.
