We are very happy to return to the popular Winnock Hotel in Drymen, situated in a beautiful part of Scotland close to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Our inclusive break comes complete with entertainment each evening, scenic visits and a cruise on Loch Lomond.
Formerly a coaching inn, The Winnock hotel has been lovingly restored and tastefully extended to its present day form. The 3 star hotel is located in the centre of the attractive village of Drymen and proved popular with our clients for many years, not least because of its warm welcome and attention to detail. All bedrooms are en-suite and spread across just two floors with a TV, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities. Although the hotel does not have a lift, ground floor rooms are available on request.
Thursday We journey north from our home area via Scotch Corner, Gretna Green and Glasgow to reach our hotel late afternoon in time for our welcome drinks reception before our dinner which includes a glass of wine and is followed by entertainment. There will be an open bar each evening between 19.30 and 22.30hrs.
Friday After breakfast we collect our packed lunches and make a visit to historic Stirling with its impressive castle and charming old town with time for exploration and maybe a spot of shopping. We re-join the coach for a scenic drive by way of the glorious Trossachs, ‘Rob Roy’ Country and tranquil Loch Katrina before returning to our hotel. There is time to relax before dinner which includes a glass of wine and is followed by entertainment.
Saturday This morning we pick up our packed lunches and have a visit to Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, including a city tour before free time in the city centre, why not visit one of the many fascinating tourist attractions including the Burrell Museum. On our return to Drymen we stop at Antartex Factory Outlet Centre in Balloch. This evening dinner includes a glass of wine and is followed by a ‘Full Scottish Show’ featuring live entertainment.
Sunday We make a visit to lovely Loch Lomond this morning to enjoy a gentle cruise on the ‘Queen of the Lochs’. Then spend time in the pretty lochside village of Luss which has featured in many Scottish TV programmes. Back at the hotel a soup and sandwich lunch awaits then a relaxing afternoon. This evening we enjoy dinner, an open bar and more entertainment.
Monday We bid farewell to our hosts before beginning our return journey. We travel to Glasgow and through Strathclyde stopping at Gretna Green, before crossing the border. Now south to return to our home area and waiting taxis early evening.
