Stately Scotland & Bagpipe Workshop

This tour combines the best of Scottish elegance and entertainment with the fun factor!

Enjoy an exclusive Visit to Ardgowan House and understand why this beautiful well-kept home is out of bounds to most. The splendour is apparent as you weave your way through the rooms where you’ll learn about the illustrious, colourful and at times incredible history that is on offer as your guide transports you back in time. It’s a fascinating story - one that tells of the fortunes of Robert the Bruce, Princess Pocahontas, Charles I, the Emperor Napoleon and Florence Nightingale amongst others.

Afterwards, you’ll be served refreshments in stately grandeur, before being entertained and given the opportunity to join in a fun workshop which allows you to understand Scottish music and dress. Listening to the bagpipes being played is simply enchanting and you’ll hear how the memorable sound is made using a lot of hot air! Next, get a shot of a ‘chanter’ for yourselves; the instrument used when learning to play the pipes. This fun workshop allows everyone to join in and even try on some tartan to strut around in.

Following a fun time at Ardgowan Estate and taking home with you a certificate proving that you have completed an introduction to bagpipes workshop, you’ll journey along the banks of the River Clyde back to Greenock.

This excursion will operate by coach and on foot. This tour has very limited space and early booking is advised. This tour involves around three hours of walking (at your discretion) and some standing. Flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
