INCLUDED EXCURSIONS
Loch Katrine Steam Cruise on SS Sir Walter Scott
Enjoy a 2-hour relaxing cruise on lovely Loch Katrine as you watch the natural wonder of the beautiful country side gently slip by from aboard the steamship SS Sir Walter Scott. Named after Scotland's much loved poet and author, this famous steamship captivates visitors with its intriguing 100 year history. A soup and sandwich lunch awaits on your return to shore at a waterside restaurant overlooking the loch in all its glory.

Falkirk Wheel & Bo'Ness & Kinneil Steam Railway
The iconic Falkirk Wheel is the world's only rotating boatlift which connects the Forth & Clyde and Union canals. It was constructed to replace a series of 19th century lock gates and is the showpiece of the Millennium Link project which re-established coast-to-coast navigation of the canals. You will make the ascent and descent through the wheel with the entire boat trip lasting approx. one hour. Continue to Bo'Ness station for a round trip on the heritage Bo'Ness & Kinneil steam railway with a traditional afternoon tea served on board. Entrance to the Museum of Scottish Railways is included and there is a 500m level walk from the station to the museum buildings (or shorter route over a footbridge). Wheelchair users may find part so the path challenging.

Loch Lomond - The Maid of the Loch
The Maid is a magnificent example of Clyde-built ship engineering with a stunning art deco inspired interior. The much-loved paddle steamer is static and permanently moored on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, attracting thousands of visitors each year with a loyal band of volunteers hoping to re-launch her one day. Afternoon tea is served on board with a singer to entertain and then there will be time to browse the Loch Lomond Shores shopping complex afterwards.

Day 5 - After breakfast, return homewards, arriving back at your local joining points early to mid-evening.
