Quality Door To Door Holidays
Monday 29th June – Friday 3rd July 2020
This tour is the best way to see what Scotland has to offer, from town to village to city. We will be visiting Glasgow, Stranraer, Ayr & Largs.
Glasgow is a port city on the River Clyde in Scotland's western Lowlands. It's famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, a rich legacy of the city's 18th–20th-century prosperity due to trade and shipbuilding. Today it's a national cultural hub, home to institutions including the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, as well as acclaimed museums and a thriving music scene.
Stranraer lies on the shores of Loch Ryan, with beautiful views and scenery. Stranraer has a beautiful town centre dominated by the Castle of St John. Many cafes with tables on the pavement line the street. Agnew Park which is on the Lochside near Stranraer`s West Pier has a wealth of facilities for children & Adults alike, including a boating lake, miniature train and pedal go-karts to name a few. The West Pier has been completely refurbished and perfect for a leisurely stroll. Great views of Ailsa Craig and Arran.
We will also visit Ayr. Scotland's National Bard, Robert Burns, was born in Alloway, on the southern outskirts of Ayr. It is well known that a visit to the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum is a must to see. But if this doesn’t tickle your tastebuds maybe take the opportunity to visit Culzean Castle or Grab an ice cream and visit the beach!
Finally we take a visit to Largs, a popular seaside resort with a pier. The town markets itself on its historic links with the Vikings which is seen around the town. The original name Largs means "the slopes" in Scottish Gaelic.
