What to expect

Envision gory battles thrashing against the grand walls of Stirling Castle. Follow in the footsteps of the outlaws that hid amongst the hills of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Relive the journeys taken by Rob Roy and William Wallace.

This is a tour for anyone who wants to admire beautiful scenery and learn about the heroes, tragedies and landscapes that defined Scottish history.

As you leave Edinburgh, you'll travel through the historic Linlithgowshire where your guide will help you to spot Linlithgow Palace which was the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots before stopping at the Kelpies Monument. These two horses’ heads stand as a testament to the horsepower that drove the industrial development of Central Scotland and are quite the sight! From here, you'll head to the shores of Loch Lomond where you can enjoy a stroll along the 'bonny banks' and take in the fantastic views of the mountains. This picturesque area was once the home of Scotland's famous highland hero, Rob Roy MacGregor, so you'll be following in the footsteps of one of the country's greatest legends.

Then, it's time to travel into the Trossachs, or ‘the Highlands in Miniature’, where the Lowlands meet the Highlands and admire the stunning scenery before going onto Stirling where you can visit one of Scotland's most magnificent castles. This castle was instrumental in Scottish history and this is your chance to find out why!
