Loch Lomond

Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond & Whisky

This tour is perfect for anyone who really wants to savour the true flavour of Scotland!

A Perfect Mix of All Things Scottish: Castles, Lochs and Whisky!

Discover the mysterious Kelpies…

We begin our tour departing from Edinburgh and shortly after passing by Falkirk, the home of The Kelpies, two 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures made by sculptor Andy Scott. These sculptures were based on the Scottish Folklore of the Kelpies, mythical water based creatures said to take the form of a horse, whilst also paying tribute to the Clydesdale horses that helped shape the landscape. Learn the rest of the story and why these sculptures are where they are today from your knowledgeable driver-guide.

Learn about the real-life Braveheart…

As you then travel through Stirlingshire, your guide will bring to life the turbulent history of William Wallace, the famous Scottish knight who you may recognise from the film 'Braveheart'. As you pass the stunning scenery, your guide will explain his link to this area and the true story of Scotland's Braveheart.

Explore Stirling Castle and City…

We will then stop at the beautiful historic market town Stirling which has a wealth of treasures to explore. You’ll have ample time to visit the stunning Stirling Castle*, one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland. Most notably, Mary Queen of Scots was coronated here. If you prefer something a little different, why not visit the new gin distillery or take a stroll through the beautiful and ancient streets that make up the medieval old town?

Wildlife, hiking and picturesque lochside scenery…

We will then make our way to our lunch stop for the day, which will either be in Aberfoyle or Balmaha. Aberfoyle is a small holiday village at the southern edge of the West Highland Fault and the heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. There are many varied things to explore here, so there is something for everyone. If you are interested in wildlife, why not watch a sheepdog demonstration, learn about the sheep in the area or witness duck herding? If you prefer, take the opportunity to explore the beautiful village. Wander around the shops and be sure to not miss the woollen mill.

Finishing off our time in Loch Lomond, we visit the beautiful lochside village of Balmaha, where you can take a short but steep hike up to Craigie Fort to enjoy stunning views of the loch or enjoy the bonnie banks on flat ground. Remember to bring suitable shoes for walking so you do not miss out! Be sure to visit the information centre to learn more about the history of Balmaha and the surrounding area.

A taste of Scottish Spirit at Auchentoshan…

Our final stop of the tour is at Auchentoshan Distillery*. Here you can learn the process of how they create the perfect dram, and you can taste a couple too! The distillery tour is a great introduction for whisky novices, but also an interesting visit for those who are familiar with the distilling process to see how Auchentoshan do things a little differently.
