What to expect

Departing Edinburgh, you will travel westwards for your first stop of the day at the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond; one of the prettiest and largest lochs in Scotland. Here you can enjoy an hour long optional cruise taking in spectacular views of the loch's many islands and surrounding mountains. Alternatively, you can take a stroll through the picturesque loch side village of Luss; with its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across Loch Lomond's western shoreline.

You will continue through the Trossachs National Park, also known as 'the Highlands in Miniature' for it's abundance of lochs, mountains and forests. It's also famous for the legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor. You will spend time exploring the area before stopping for lunch in a small village immersed in its beautiful surroundings.

After lunch, you will make your way through the town of Callander, past the medieval Doune Castle before you make your final stop of the day at Stirling Castle. The site is one of Scotland's most historically significant fortresses, sitting high on volcanic rock and offering wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. You will have time to visit the castle and learn of the exploits of key historical figures including William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots. With lots of interesting things to see and do here, the Stirling Castle experience is a must for any visitor to Scotland.

Please note: this tour may run in reverse.
