Greenock

Symbol of the Royal Navy, a few kilometres from Glasgow is the Port of Greenock: birth place of James Watt, inventor of the steam engine. The local newspaper, The Greenock Telegraph, is amongst the oldest in the United Kingdom.

After disembarking in Greenock, you must visit Glasgow, a Scottish City full of pubs and restaurants. Very important museums and art galleries, such as the Burrell Collection or the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The architecture of Glasgow is one of the most surprising of the United Kingdom, eighteenth-century renovated warehouses of the Merchant City to the massive George Square in Victorian style. Glasgow is also a particularly pleasant city for those who love parks and gardens: enjoy a stroll in the beautiful People's Palace and Winter Gardens or in Strathclyde Country Park in Motherwell.

Not to be missed:

• New Lanarck with the spectacular Falls of Clyde

• Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in the heart of Glasgow

• Stirling with its castle, reminiscent of Braveheart
