Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky
A fascinating tour that will introduce you to the history of Stirling with its famous Castle and the natural beauty of the Loch Lomond National Park. End the day at pretty Glengoyne Whisky Distillery for a tour and tutored tasting.
We head west from Edinburgh to pass by Linlithgow, birthplace of both King James V and his daughter, Mary, Queen of Scots. We stop in Stirling, where you have the option to visit the striking Stirling Castle, built on a sheer crag overlooking the battlefield site of Bannockburn and the hilltop Wallace Monument.
Our drive then continues through the Trossachs: a real taste of the Highlands! This scenic trail offers superb loch-side views and wild mountain vistas. We travel along the banks of Loch Venacher to reach the charming village of Brig O’ Turk. Once at the head of Loch Achray, we climb the twisting Duke’s Pass to reach the pretty village of Aberfoyle.
We’ll spend time by the "bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond” of the well-known song when we visit the little village of Balmaha. Loch Lomond is Britain’s largest lake and is, almost certainly, one of Scotland’s loveliest.
We complete our tour on a real high note as we visit picturesque Glengoyne Malt Whisky Distillery. Here we can enjoy an optional guided tour to discover how Scotland’s national drink is lovingly and painstakingly produced. There is also a chance to enjoy a wee dram and browse for collectables in the distillery shop.
