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

Our group of six was met at the cruise terminal by James with a great smile and enthusiasm. This set the pace of the day to follow. James gave great information and stories from his Heritage, that made this excursion very special. We visited several sites that were mentioned on the tour and some that were only known to locals which made it the tour extra special. Highly recommend James and enjoyed the day filled with laughter. Well done and thanks for The warm and wonderful Scottish Spirit!
