"Our visit to Loch Lomond and Stirling Castle was well organised and well worth the day trip from Edinburgh. Mahri, our guide, is a fountain of knowledge and shares the information with great Scottish humour."

Edward Raupp, 2015

Itinerary


Tour starts 08:45am. We depart Edinburgh and head west through Scotland's central belt towards the ‘Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond’ where we take time at Balmaha to admire views of Ben Lomond. Here, you will have the opportunity to go on a woodland walk that will afford you great views of the loch. Standing on its bank you will understand why Loch Lomond has been immortalised in a world famous song.

The afternoon is spent exploring Stirling. Take the chance to discover impressive Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s most important structures both historically and architecturally. Many royals have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary Queen of Scots, and it was central to William Wallace’s fight in the Wars of Independence. Alternatively explore Stirling, geographically one of the most significant towns in Scottish history.

On our return to Edinburgh you will have the chance to visit and marvel at the stunning Kelpies, the world's largest equine sculptures dedicated to the horse powered heritage of Central Scotland, designed by Andy Scott. 

We return to Edinburgh early evening, approximately 17:30.

STIRLING CASTLE

Stirling Castle is arguably the most impressive and historically important castle in Scotland. Seen for miles around, its imposing position has played a hugely strategic role throughout the centuries. Once home to the Scottish Royals, the building has been subject to many bloody seiges and much political intrigue.
