Itinerary

I will pick you up from your hotel and take you to Stirling, first to the Bridge, the scene of William Wallace's victory over the English Army, where, standing on the bridge, I will describe the decisive battle fought there in 1297, which was the subject of Braveheart. (the true version of the battle varies just a bit from Mel Gibson's!! Then up to the Castle for a fully guided tour conducted by myself as a Blue Badge Guide, Then a short drive to Bannockburn, the site of Scotland's decisive battle by Robert the Bruce over the English.
Lunch at a local hostelry follows, then a short drive to Doune Castle, used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and more recently in the filming of Outlander.
