Discover Dumbarton Castle
Thirteen miles outside of Glasgow, Dumbarton has a proud history dating back to the Iron Age. Today, one part of its rich heritage still stands strong - the dramatic Dumbarton Castle. For those who like a view, it’s worth the climb up the White Tower Crag, while fans of military power can explore the 18th-century artillery fortifications. And if that’s all a bit too dramatic, just take in the sheer majesty of the Georgian Governor’s House.
Explore the Maritime Museum
Today, visitors to the Maritime Museum can enjoy the ‘Denny Ship Model Experiment Tank’, where a number of exhibits tell the story of one of Scotland’s most impressive shipyards. With expert knowledge, enthralling exhibitions and a friendly atmosphere, this show space is one of the finest of its kind.
Relax at Geilston Garden
After a long day of exploring, there’s nothing better than a relaxing trip to Geilston Garden, found right by the River Clyde where it’s existed for two centuries. Today, it’s as colourful as ever with picturesque open gardens and intricate walled areas for a perfect, tranquil day out. Planning a trip to Dumbarton? Check out the Travelodge Dumbarton Hotel.
