Full description
Explore the majestic scenery of the Trossachs National Park and discover where the Scottish Highlands meet the Lowlands. Learn more about some of the nation's heroes at historic castles and monuments. Following a pick-up from Greenock Port, travel northeast into the Trossachs, known as “Scotland in Miniature” for the craggy hills and sparkling lochs. Discover where writers such as Sir Walter Scott found their inspiration. Continue into “Braveheart” country to see the magnificent landscapes of Stirlingshire and Stirling Castle, the latter arguably one of the most important castles in Scotland. The Old Town of Stirling is still surrounded by its 16th-century walls, built to protect Mary Queen of Scots from Henry VIII. Enjoy some free time to tour the castle and learn about the exploits of Robert the Bruce. Then enjoy some refreshments at the café, before driving into the heart of the Trossachs and the home of the folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor and his “Children of the Mist.” Go to Kilmahog to get up-close to Highland cattle. Then journey to the village of Aberfoyle just below the Highland fault line. Stop for a bite to eat before traveling through Trossachs National Park to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Marvel at one of the largest lochs in Scotland and see many of its islands. Enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains before the return journey through Campsie Fells to Greenock Port and your drop off. 2023 May 5th, 10th, 14th, 24th, 26th, 28th June 1st, 7th, 19th, 28th July 1st, 13th, 14th, 20th, 22nd, 23rd, 25th, 26th, 29th August 5th, 18th, 20th, 27th, 29th, 30th September 9th, 11th, 23rd October 5th

Our tour guides David and James were very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel like home from the very start! My husband and I went on this tour during our honeymoon and they went out of their way to make us feel special! They were very informative and made the tour lots of fun! We would definitely reccomend this tour to you!

I must congratulate your organiser who met us at the ship in Greenock

My husband, who is claustrophobic, could not sit in the seat we were left and, when I explained to your organisers at the port, he quickly arranged for us to go onto another coach where we were near the front. The guide was very good, but the weather was terrible.

More shopping than substance

While it was a nice ride through Scotland, it felt that every stop was designed to place you into a tourist trap-type shopping experience rather than actually seeing the natural beauty of Scotland. One example being that we were to see "Bonny Loch Lomond" celebrated in song and a premiere location of history and natural splendor. Instead, we were dropped off in a shopping mall at one end of the lake with nothing to see but a [un]natural bay renting boats, a shopping mall, children,s adventure sites etc. Stay away unless you don't care about the sites and care more about seeing souviner shops.
