Clyde Castles and Stately Homes Special Offer

Scotland has a long and turbulent history, and this voyage around the Firth of Clyde calls at some of the country's most impressive architectural treasures.

Enjoy a visit to Hunterston Castle, seat of the Clan Hunter, before heading to the grand Ardgowan House, held by the Stewart family since the early 15th century. There are also visits to Dumfries House, built for the 3rd Earl by brothers John and Robert Adam, and Pollock House, a magnificent country house set in the heart of Glasgow.

Dumbarton Castle, overlooking the River Clyde, is the last architectural treasure, before Hebridean Princess cruises Loch Long and Long Goil on her return to Greenock.
