Step Back in Time with a Classic Two Lochs Tour of Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine
Step back in time, not once but twice, following in the footsteps of William and Dorothy Wordsworth while travelling by historic steamship and classic coaches from the 1960’s!
Join the Friends of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs on this re-creation of the Two Lochs Tour, a journey which looks back to the very dawn of tourism in Scotland.
This tour with a difference will travel first by an Alexanders’ classic coach to Tarbet, then by ferry across Loch Lomond, on the SS Sir Walter Scott down the length of Loch Katrine, finally returning to Balloch via Balmaha by classic MacBrayne’s bus and along the way learning of the exploits of the Wordsworths when they travelled a similar route in much less comfort back in 1803.
