Leaving Edinburgh, we make our way to the ancient Scottish capital of Stirling, its skyline dominated by its castle and the iconic Wallace Monument. We stop to hear of Scotland's most famous patriot and his part in the medieval Wars of Independence.
We drive further into the Highlands with the chance to spot one of Scotland's famous residents 'The Hairy Coo'. We then travel through the scenic beauty of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. We pass the shimmering waters of Loch Earn before stopping for lunch at The Famous Grouse Experience, one of Scotland's most famous whisky distilleries.
Having revived ourselves with a wee dram of the 'water of life', we head to the Hermitage in the heart of Perthshire and take a short woodland walk to see the spectacular Black Linn Falls on the River Braan. Our return journey visits the quaint village of Dunkeld, in Macbeth country, whose stunning cathedral sits by the banks of the River Tay. We return to Edinburgh, passing the iconic Forth Bridge on the way.
