Take in the truly spectacular rugged scenery and coastal islands on this unique seaplane tour of Scotland’s west coast.
Flying at heights between 500 and 5,000 feet the route will take you down the Clyde Estuary past Greenock and Dunoon, then south towards the town of Rothesay on the Isle of Bute, the ancient stronghold of Scottish Kings. Look out for Toward Castle with its fascinating second world war history and the 12th Century Rothesay Castle with its moat and drawbridge.
Views of Arran and the Mull of Kintyre should be available as you make your way past Loch Striven towards the Kyles of Bute andthe village of Tighnabruaich – with great visibility you can even see Northern Ireland.
Your flight will then turn north up the eastern coast of Loch Fyne towards Otter Ferry on the Cowal peninsula and at this point the islands of Jura and Mull can usually be seen to the West. Look out for Minard Castle on the west coast of Loch Fyne.
Approaching Tarbet on Loch Lomond the flight swings southward to give you a magnificent view of Ben Lomond and a low level cruise down the world’s most famous loch towards the islands to the south.
Your Captain may have to vary the route on the day depending on the weather conditions – however, you can cover a great deal of ground in 45 minutes of flying – over 120 miles. No matter what the cloud base or visibility prepare yourself for a fantastic experience.
