Full description
Escape the chaos of city centers and head for the tranquil Scottish Highlands on a 9-hour scenic tour of Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and more. Following a pick-up from your hotel in Edinburgh, you will take a brief panoramic trip around Scotland’s second city of Glasgow. Then, head west towards Loch Lomond, passing the River Clyde. Stop on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, Britain’s largest expanse of water, with time for a boat trip or a ramble, if you wish. Move on to the village of Aberfoyle, gateway to the Trossachs, where you will stop for lunch. With its lochs, glens, and heather-covered mountains, this area is often referred to as “Scotland in Miniature.” It 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” stories. Drive through the picturesque village of Callander and stop to visit Stirling Castle, location for many scenes in the hit movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. As you drive back into Edinburgh, relaxing music will be played in the coach.

This is a tour of information that others may not be able to give. Our guide was born and bred in Edinburgh and knew so much about the city. She gave us a full pack of info. It is a tour one should take at the start of a visit to Edinburgh.

I would recommend this trip - what a fantastic day and we learnt so much - worth every penny. Jimmy is a legend his knowledge of the area and the history was incredible and very interesting - due to the current covid19 situation we weren't able to do everything you would normally do but Jimmy made up for it - if you do nothing else whilst in Edinburgh do this trip you wont regret it !
