A great day around the stunning loch & trossachs


Once the capital of Scotland, Stirling is a beautiful city steeped in history. When we arrive you will be free to roam and take in your surroundings or pick up an official tour of the castle, which start on the hour.
Next, we will journey to the Trossachs and the bustling town of Callander. Often described as the gateway to the highlands this picturesque town with its quaint little shops is the perfect stop off for an early lunch.

Once you are rested and refreshed we will drive a few miles along the road where you can meet some hairy highland cows, with an opportunity to feed them a carrot while you get your picture taken. Then it's onwards through the Trossachs.
Have your camera at the ready to capture the beautiful scenery en route to the bonny banks of Loch Lomond. Here you will have the opportunity to stop for photographs, take a walk down to the loch and even dip your toes in the water before we head back to the port. Time permitting we can also stop in Luss, a village on the banks of Loch Lomond.

A Recent Review of this tour

5 STAR +++IF your are going to Glasgow Please take the time to tour with James Kennedy. 510 characters is not enough to explain the fabulous time we had with James. To start the day my friend and I made a few comments about James kilt, he explained how the kilt got its name by "Kilting" people making smart comments about it, and it was on from that point for the rest of the day!!! He was absolutely the best tour guide we have had any were in the world. He put his heart, soul and his own money in our tour
