What You Can Expect
From the famous stretch of water, continue by minivan to Trossachs National Park, home to some of Scotland’s most iconic Highland scenery. Pass through the twisting valleys, admiring the glens, loch and dense wilderness of the dales that embody the raw beauty of the Highlands, and then travel south to the quaint village of Aberfoyle. Tucked away in the heart of Trossachs National Park, the charming village is the perfect place to stretch your legs on a stroll. Do just that, and make the most of some free time for lunch in a local restaurant (own expense).
In the afternoon, leave the Highlands and travel east to Scotland’s former capital of Stirling. Head inside its star attraction — Stirling Castle — and discover the places where many Scottish royals were crowned on a walking tour. The entrance fee is at your own expense, but once inside you’ll see some of the most impressive public rooms in Scotland including the lavish James IV’s Hall and the Renaissance Royal Palace. Learn how the castle was central to William Wallace's fight in the Wars of Independence and hosted bloody sieges as well as much political intrigue.
Leave the castle after your tour, and follow your guide into the city center to pose for photos by the Wallace Monument, an impressive tower built to honor Scotland's famous hero, Sir William Wallace. After admiring the monument and hearing of its history, start your journey back to Edinburgh. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at the start point in the early evening.
A great trip. Another Ten!!
Nick was a very knowledgeable guide and driver. He has a sincere love for his homeland which made listening to him so easy plus, he added a few audio recordings that added a nice touch to the information he told. Our one disappointment was that we didn't stop at the Wallace Monument which was one of the main reasons I booked this tour. We saw it from afar but did not stop. You need to edit your information describing this day tour as it's not correct. Our stop in Luss was a wonderful surprise-----words can't describe it's charm and character Aberfoyle was a nice place to stop for lunch I recommend you walk down to the main street to catch a bite to eat-----much more interesting than at the visitor's center. Stirling Castle should not be missed well worth the ticket. I'm not sure what one would do if they didn't visit the castle-----walking around Stirling is not like walking around Edinburgh. The trip was quite pleasant------lovely scenery, interesting history to listen to, and you're home in time to enjoy dinner and the evening in Edinburgh without feeling exhausted.
