Tour Description:

Departing from Greenock you will travel alongside the River Clyde towards Glasgow before turning south through the Renfrewshire Hills and into Ayrshire with its rich farming country and many small towns and villages.

Hadrians Wall, Roman Britain and The Scottish Borders Tour from EdinburghOn arrival at Culzean Country Park you will have the choice of visiting the castle and gardens or just the gardens and woodland walks. An entry fee is payable on arrival. The castle dates from the late 18th Century – a peaceful time in Scottish history so it is less a defensive castle and more like a great country house with fine furniture and beautiful Robert Adam architecture. Sitting right on the edge of the cliffs looking out over the Firth of Clyde the views are superb and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. For those who like walking there are miles of tracks and footpaths through the grounds – taking in the swan pond, deer park, and walled gardens as well as rocky coves and sandy beaches. This will also be your lunch stop.

Hadrians Wall, Roman Britain and The Scottish Borders Tour from EdinburghAfter lunch you will follow the coastline to the tiny fishing village of Dunure with its ancient ruined castle and dark history. Continuing on, the road leads down into the village of Alloway. This is the countryside of Robert Burns – Scotland's national poet - you will see many places mentioned in his poems and songs – from Auld Kirk Alloway to the “Banks and Braes o’ Bonnie Doon”. The recently redeveloped visitor centre will tell you all you need to know about this remarkable man – born a poor farmer’s son but now famous as the writer of “Auld Lang Syne” – a song known and sung in friendship throughout the world. There are also riverside walks and the Auld Brig (old bridge) to explore as well as the haunted ruins of the old church.

From here we return along the Ayrshire Coast and return to Greenock for approx. 16.00.
