Full description

Embark on a guided bus tour of Loch Lomond, the Trossachs, and Stirling Castle from Glasgow. Take in the views of the lush Scottish countryside and learn about William Wallace and Rob Roy from your driver.

After leaving Glasgow, stop at the ‘bonnie banks’ of Loch Lomond, one of the prettiest and largest lochs in the whole of Scotland. Take a cruise, enjoying spectacular views of the loch’s many islands and the surrounding mountains.

Alternatively, take a stroll through the picturesque loch-side conservation village of Luss, with its quaint houses, cafes, and stunning views across the loch’s western shoreline. Eat lunch in the village of Aberfoyle, nestled in the heart of Trossachs National Park. Continue through the Trossachs, Scotland’s first national park, known as ‘the Highlands in miniature’ for its abundance of lochs, mountains, and forests, and homeland of the legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor. Your final stop is Stirling Castle, which sits high on volcanic rock and offers wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. Have time to visit the castle and learn of the exploits of key historic figures including William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and Mary Queen of Scots.

After your visit to Stirling Castle, make your way back to Glasgow.

It was a brilliant trip. An opportunity to see a little bit of Scotland outside the city. The boat trip on the loch was beautiful. Then travelling up to Stirling the countryside was amazing. The castle was so worth a visit. Our guide and driver was so knowledgeable and had a brilliant sense of humour. It was a truly brilliant day out. Not to be missed if you have the chance.

It was a pleasant trip and the guide-driver, Stuart was very knowledgeable and gave lots of information which I really appreciated. Nevertheless, I wish I had known the time we were going to spend at Stirling Castle because, from my point of view, 90 minutes is not enough to explore the castle and surroundings.

Very nice trip. The weather was on our side and we were able to see the mountains and the lakes perfectly. Didn't do the boat ride but a short walk along the stream to Loch Lomond which was fine. Stirling Castle is magnificent. Overall we see a lot of beautiful landscapes without spending the whole day on the bus. Nevertheless, I prefer excursions for smaller groups (we were 32), offered by other companies and which are not more expensive. Our guide Andrew T was very motivated and passed on his love of Scotland to us. Very pleasant, he was perfect to guide us on this day.
