Itinerary

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

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

After lunch, we make our way through the town of Callander, past the medieval Doune Castle before making our final stop of the day at Stirling Castle. This 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, before hitting the road again, back to Edinburgh.
