Big Cities, small towns & beautiful Highland views, there's so much to see on this tour. Don't miss the incredible chance to view the lochs and castles of the Scottish Highlands. Start your morning with our FREE hotel & Guest House Pickup service.

Heading west towards Loch Lomond, we take 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 it’s heavy industry and shipbuilding, we stop on the Bonnie, Bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, Britain's largest expanse of water. Here there will be time for a boat trip or a ramble, as you wish. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs area, recently designated a National Park, is a place where 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 “Highlands in Miniature” and was a favourite destination of Sir Walter Scott, therefore the location was used as the backdrop for the movies adapted from his books “Rob Roy” and “The Lady of the Lake”.

After enjoying beautiful scenery, our final stop of the day will be Doune - a well preserved 14th century Castle, set amid lovely Stirlingshire countryside.

Take an audio tour of the Castle* which is narrated by Monty Python's Terry Jones. Hear the exciting history of the medieval Castle and residents. Doune Castle is the atmospheric stand-in for the fictional Castle Leoch in the TV show Outlander and has also been used as a film location for Game of Thrones as well as more recently appearing in the movie 'Outlaw King' about Robert The Bruce.
