Day Tours from Glasgow and Surrounding Areas
Although Glasgow is a world class city with many options on offer, its close proximity and easy access to many points of interest outwith the city, both natural and man made, is often overlooked.
Take whisky for example. There are numerous distilleries within a two hour drive with two, namely Glengoyne and Auchentoshan taking less than half an hour to reach.
The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond are around half an hour's drive from Glasgow and Stirling Castle, one of our largest and most important castles, is less than an hour's drive away.
St Andrews, the home of golf, can be reached in less than two hours and is seen as a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage for many who enjoy golf. It is even possible to arrange to have a game on one of the famous courses, and golf clubs and other equipment can be hired if necessary. The drive back from St Andrews can take us through the picturesque villages of the "East Neuk" with an optional stop for food at the award winning Anstruther Fish Bar.
The modern engineering masterpiece "The Falkirk Wheel" rotating boat lift connecting the Forth Clyde Canal with the Union Canal is also easily accessible along with the recently sculpted Kelpies, close to the eastern end of the Forth Clyde Canal. At around 30 metres / 100 ft these iconic sculptures by Andy Scott are amongst the largest equine heads in the world.
The famous 17th century town of Culross is just a short drive away as is the Unesco World Heritage site of the utopian socialist village of New Lanark.
The Burns country of Ayrshire is also easily accessible should you wish to visit some of the sites related to our most famous poet.
These are just a few examples of places that can be visited, and explored, during one of our day tours. Some of our guests choose to enjoy a number of different day tours from Glasgow allowing visits to a wide variety of places during their time based in Glasgow.
