As we continue to promote and celebrate the lives of our Founders we’re delighted to announce our third annual bus tour up into the Gareloch, where those who formed our Club were born and bred.

The Tour on Sunday 19th July will coincide with the Rosneath Highland Games.

As we make our way from Glasgow to the Gareloch we’ll also visit the final resting place of Tom Vallance in Bearsden.


The Tour itinerary is as follows :

11.00 Depart Ibrox Stadium.

11.30 Hillfoot Cemetery Bearsden. Final resting place of Tom Vallance.

12.00 Depart Hillfoot Cemetery.

On route to Garelochhead we will highlight many locations linked to Rangers over the years.

13.00 Arrive Garelochhead and Rosneath.

We will visit Bendarroch Park where our Founders ran in races against and with each other aged only 10 and 11 .They were also to return there during our early years with their newly formed Rangers team to participate in the Garelochhead New Years Day Games.

We will also visit the homes of Peter Campbell and Moses McNeil and pay our respects at Moses final resting place in the churchyard at Rosneath.

14.00 This is free time to enjoy the Rosneath Highland Games where food and refreshments are available or you can just have a leisurely stroll around the beautiful setting which is the Gareloch.

16.00 Depart Rosneath.

17.00 Arrive Ibrox Stadium

The cost of the Tour is as follows :

Adults £19

Senior Citizens and Children ( Under 16) £15.

(Please note that entry to the Highland Games, Lunch and Refreshments are not included in the price.)

Looking forward to this. Been on the trail a few times, and the founders presentation but not the Rosneath trip. I love to hear the fascinating stories of our founders.

Since its an early rise, I'll need to get the wife to make my playpiece for me this time :D

Rosneath games have been cancelled due to the weather....

The Tour is really about telling the Founders Story and visiting various locations on route from Glasgow and around the Gareloch area.The Highland Games were a nice finish to our day but not important.

We have made alternative arrangements and will communicate this to our passengers tomorrow morning.

It's a real shame for the organisers and our friends at Rosneath but once again the Scottish weather has intervened.
