Including 1 Welcome Cocktail Party and 1 Gala Dinner
Cruising the Firth of Clyde from Greenock, land at the attractive marina resort of Largs en route for Kelburn Castle, seat of the Earl of Glasgow and one of Scotland's oldest castles.
Few sights can compare with the air of a French château, blending with a medieval keep, and the stunning graffiti wing, artfully devised to conceal damage to its walls. Onwards to little-known Great Cumbrae, along Millport Bay wonder at the diminutive Cathedral of the Isles dating from 1861, the smallest in Britain, seating only a hundred worshippers.
South to Arran, explore the contrasting scenery of this delightful isle, divided by the Highland Boundary Fault, on a tour from Brodick, enjoying the Victorian charm of Lamlash, looking out to Holy Isle in its bay. The afternoon brings the tiny village of Lochranza, where the Isle of Arran Distillery reveals the true spirit of whisky. Sailing to Bute, wonder at the artistic genius of the 3rd Marquess of Bute, who built the splendid Neo-Gothic mansion of Mount Stuart House in 300 acre grounds.
While away the final afternoon on a relaxing cruise along the breathtaking reaches of Loch Long and Loch Goil en route for Greenock.
