Tour Description

 

A perfect mix of all things Scottish; castles, lochs and whisky! 

 

Explore Stirling Castle and City... 

As you drive north-east out of Edinburgh you can marvel at the engineering feat that are The Kelpies, two 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures. Then, as you are travelling through Stirlingshire, our guide will bring to life the turbulent times of William Wallace - dramatised in the film Braveheart - and explain his link to the countryside you're passing through. We'll stop at the beautiful city of Stirling for about two hoursThis gives you ample time to explore the stunning castle* or stroll through the beautiful and ancient streets that surround it.  

 

Scotland’s biggest Loch and through the National Park… 

Our route then takes you over the Dukes Pass where you will experience dramatic views of the Trossachs National Park and its Lochs, home of the Highland rogue Rob Roy. We then make our way to Aberfoyle, a small holiday village at the southern edge of the West Highland Fault and the heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, for lunch. Finishing off our time in Loch Lomond, we visit the beautiful loch side village of Balmaha where you can take a short but steep hike up to Craigie Fort to enjoy stunning views of the loch, or enjoy the bonnie banks on flat ground.    

 

A taste of Scottish Spirit at Glengoyne... 

Our final stop is one of Scotland’s prettiest distilleries, Glengoyne*Here you can learn the process of how they create the perfect dram, and you can taste a couple too! If you aren’t interested in whisky you can walk to the nearby Dumgoyne Hill and take in the stunning waterfall and tranquil secret glen that sits behind the distillery.

You get a little bit of everything, history, nature, and whisky! My trip to Scotland would feel absolutely incomplete without this day trip.
(Grace M - June 2016)

This tour gave us everything we wanted from our short trip to Scotland - a sense of the history, the culture and the countryside. Would highly recommend!
