Our prize-winner’s adventure starts with a Five Ferries Tour. You’ll embark on a two-day tour of the Firth of Clyde islands of Arran and Bute and the peninsulas of Cowal and Kintyre. Our prize is for a car plus four occupants, including the driver.

On Arran, you and your party will enjoy a tour of the grand baronial-style Brodick Castle, which sits in landscaped gardens backed by Goatfell mountain and enjoys sweeping views over Brodick Bay and the Firth of Clyde. Also on Arran, savour the water of life at Lochranza Distillery, where our prize-winner and three guests will enjoy a tour and (except children) a whisky-tasting session.

On Bute, Mount Stuart is the seat of the Stuarts of Bute and one of the world’s finest homes. This imposing Neo-Gothic country house sits in extensive gardens and our prize includes a behind-the-scenes tour plus afternoon tea for four people.

We’ve also lined up a one-night stay for four guests in a luxury five-star apartment at Portavadie Marina on the idyllic shores of Loch Fyne. Our prize includes a delicious breakfast served in the award-winning restaurant overlooking the marina.

This truly is a fantastic prize!
