  • Overview & Itinerary


    Travel through a landscape steeped in history. As you journey past Linlithgow palace and on to Stirling Castle, your guide will bring to life the turbulent times of the Stuart Kings and Mary Queen of Scots. Once at Stirling, you'll have plenty of time to explore this amazing fortress or the beautiful city that it overlooks.

    The Bonnie Bonnie Banks O' Loch Lomond are your lunchtime stop and you can stretch your legs and take in the scenery. Also, there will be a chance to enjoy lunch at a pub built out of a 300-year-old oak tree.

    In the afternoon, you have the opportunity to experience the real spirit of Scotland and visit one of Scotland's most beautiful distilleries – Glengoyne. You'll find out how whisky is made and discover why a whisky matured in the lowlands is classified as a Highland malt.


    Head off into the Highlands on the Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond & Glengoyne Distillery excursion.

    you'll be passing through a landscape steeped in history. You'll journey past the famous battlefield of Bannockburn and your guide will bring to life the turbulent times of Robert the Bruce and Scotland's fight for independence.

    The route then takes you through the spectacular Duke's Pass which offers magnificent views to the peaks of the stunning Trossachs Mountains and carries you past some of Scotland's most picturesque lochs.

    Your lunchtime stop is by Loch Lomond. Why not try lunch at a traditional pub built out of a 300-year-old oak tree (payable direct) and then walk the shores of Britain's largest expanse of fresh water?
