Description

Tour Route

Heading west towards Loch Lomond, your excursion takes time for a short panoramic tour of Scotland's largest city - Glasgow - and see how this once industrial giant is again flourishing.

Soon after passing the River Clyde, world famous for its heavy industry and shipbuilding, there's a stop on the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond - Britain’s largest expanse of water - with time for a boat trip (not included in ticket price) or a ramble, as you wish. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs area was recently designated a National Park. The magnificent landscape has fired the imagination of writers and artists for centuries.

Moving on, we soon come to the village of Aberfoyle, the gateway to the Trossachs, where we will stop for lunch. With its lochs, glens and heather covered mountains, this area is well known as "Scotland in Miniature," and was a favorite destination of Sir Walter Scott, who used the location as the backdrop for his "Rob Roy" and "The Lady of the Lake."

Soon after driving through the picturesque village of Callander we pass the massive 14th century Doune Castle, which was featured in the movie "Monty Python and the Holy Grail."

Then on to Stirling, with an opportunity to visit the Stirling Castle (entrance not included in tour price). With at least an hour's stop on the castle esplanade, you will be able to visit the castle or other nearby attractions and take in the magnificent views over the Forth Valley towards the Wallace Monument, a 200-foot memorial to William Wallace, the man immortalized in the movie "Braveheart."

Leaving Stirling, we pass Bannockburn, scene of Robert The Bruce's famous victory over the English in 1314, and then Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queens of Scots in 1542.

Suitable and relaxing music will be played during your comfortable drive back to Edinburgh.
