What to expect

See the beautiful Loch Lomond and the breathtaking Highlands on this day trip and finish it up with Stirling Castle.

At the start of your bus tour, you’ll receive a short panoramic tour of Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city. Your guide will show you how this once industrial giant is flourishing again. You’ll also pass the River Clyde, another world-famous place for heavy industry and shipbuilding.

You’ll stop by the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, Britain’s largest expanse of water. Here you’ll have free time to explore. You can go on a boat trip or simply walk around. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs area has been recently designated a National Park, so you’re sure to find magnificent views. It’s an area which has inspired the imagination of writers and artists for centuries.

Next you have a stop for lunch in the village of Aberfoyle. This area is full of lochs, glens and heather-covered mountains, making it a beautiful “Highlands in Miniature”. The area is so captivating that Sir Walter Scott filmed Rob Roy and The Lady in the Lake here.

From there you’ll pass through the picturesque village of Callander as well as the massive 14th-century Doune Castle (as seen in Monty Python and the Holy Grail). Finally, the tour will stop in Stirling for an hour. Here you can explore the area at your leisure. Stirling Castle is a popular destination, as well the views at Forth Valley. There, you’ll be able to see the 200-foot memorial to William Wallace, the man immortalized in the movie Braveheart.

On the way back to Edinburgh, you’ll pass Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce famously beat the English in 1314, and Linlithgow Palace, where Mary Queen of Scots was born in 1542. It’ll be a relaxing end to an adventurous day.

Important note: This tour has a four-passenger-minimum requirement and is subject to cancellation if this minimum is not met. In the unlikely event of such a cancellation, your choice of a refund, reschedule, or alternative tour will be offered.
