What to expect

Leaving Glasgow, you travel north-east to Stirling, where our first stop is the Wallace Monument; a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace. Inside you will find fascinating exhibits leading you through the life of the real Braveheart and most impressive of all, Wallace’s legendary 5ft 6in (1.7m) tall broadsword.

You will then travel further north to Gleneagles Hotel Estate - one of Scotland’s world class golf resorts and site of the 2014 Ryder Cup. Enjoy a photo opportunity here and see where the international legends of golf play.

Continue your journey through the pretty countryside of Perthshire to the next stop in Crieff, where you will visit The Famous Grouse Experience* at Scotland's oldest distillery, Glenturret Distillery, for a whisky tour. Learn about the traditional whisky-making process, see how you measure up to the world’s largest bottle of whisky and sample some of ‘The Water of Life’ itself at the fantastic Taste Experience bar. Enjoy a range of tasty lunch options in the Glenturret Cafe or take a stroll in the distillery grounds.

In the afternoon you will travel west past beautiful Loch Earn and down through Strathyre to Kilmahog Woollen Mill for a chance to meet the Highland cows. You then continue on through the Trossachs - Scotland’s first national park, known as ‘the Highlands in miniature’ for its abundance of lochs, mountains and forests, where you’ll discover the lands of legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor. You then make a brief refreshment stop in the pretty town of Aberfoyle, before returning to Glasgow.
