What You Can Expect

Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky Trail Small Group Day Trip from Glasgow

Loch Lomond, Scotland

Leave behind the city and get a taste of Scotland off-the-beaten-path! Your 9-hour trip through the wild Scottish Highlands starts in central Glasgow. In the morning, gather with your small group and board a luxury minivan for the first short leg of your trip to Stirling. 

Disembark at Stirling Castle, a critical medieval stronghold that has perched atop its rocky summit since 1000 BC. The former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots, the castle showcases fine architecture and furnishings, which you’re welcome to view with an optional tour (own expense). 

Afterwards, head into the wild country, passing Doune Castle and Callander en route to Trossachs National Park. As your coach travels through rolling hills and green pastures, your expert guide will share fascinating true and fictitious tales about local figures like William Wallace, Rob Roy MacGregor and the illustrious Robin Hood. 

Stop in the quaint village of Aberfoyle, nestled in the forest. Explore the town and grab some lunch (own expense) before heading to Loch Lomond, the last stop on your trip. Stroll on the banks of this tranquil lake and pop into the rustic Glengoyne whisky distillery. Buy yourself a tour and nip of local whisky, or just visit the shop. 

Your full-day trip concludes with evening drop-off at the departure point in Glasgow.
