What to expect

See the beautiful Loch Lomond and the breathtaking Highlands on this day trip from Edinburgh and finish it up with Stirling Castle.

You’ll stop by the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, Britain’s largest expanse of water. Here you’ll have free time to explore. You can go on a boat trip or simply walk around. The Loch Lomond and Trossachs area has been recently designated a National Park, so you’re sure to find magnificent views. It’s an area that has inspired the imagination of writers and artists for centuries.

Next you have a stop for lunch in the village of Aberfoyle. This area is full of lochs, glens and heather-covered mountains, making it a beautiful “Highlands in Miniature”. The area is so captivating that Sir Walter Scott filmed 'Rob Roy' and 'The Lady in the Lake' here.

Finally, the tour will stop in Stirling for an hour. Here you can explore the area at your leisure. Stirling Castle is a popular destination, as well the views at Forth Valley. There, you’ll be able to see the 200-foot memorial to William Wallace, the man immortalized in the movie 'Braveheart'.

On the way back to Edinburgh, you’ll pass Bannockburn, where Robert the Bruce famously beat the English in 1314, and Linlithgow Palace, where Mary Queen of Scots was born in 1542. It’ll be a relaxing end to an adventurous day.

    Het was een fantastische excursie, echter vond ik de tijd die we hadden om rond te kijken veel te kort. We hadden wat tegenslag waardoor we om moesten ...
