Had a great day with Nicola seeing Scotland! Everything ran smoothly and there was a good amount of time at each place. Nicola was very approachable and informative. It was a great overview and we learnt heaps about the history of Scotland. Would highly recommend!
The trip was fantastic. Our driver, Allen, is outstanding at what he does. He clearly had an itinerary of what to talk about and when during the drive, and it was perfect. He made me laugh. His sense of humor was incredible. He had jokes to tell, sure, but he also had a wit about him that was hilarious. He taught me history and facts of Scotland. I learned about Sir William Wallace; Scottish folklore, music and history; the coat color of a particular cow; and much more. He made me inwardly reflect. A story he told coupled with an extended pause in his speech and views of the gorgeous Scottish countryside gave me ample time think deeply. I travelled alone, but not once did I feel alone. I cannot speak highly enough of my guide, Allen. The locations were great as well. Stirling Castle was great to explore. We stopped at a few places around Loch Lomond to take pictures. We stopped in Aberdoyle, a charming little town with nice shops, eateries and bars. I could have spent half a day just wandering around Aberdoyle. Our last destination was Glengoyne Distillery, and it was a complete joy. The scotch is premier. If you choose this trip, I do not think you will be disappointed. If you get Allen as a guide, I know you won't be disappointed. Have fun and safe travels!
This was my third visit in the past five years. Perched on the volcanic rock outcropping overlooking the glen and bridge where William Wallace won the battle of Sterling Bridge, Stirling Castle is the epitome of 16th Century castles. This is no ruin but a dynamically restored Castle with wall paintings and beautifully reproduced tapestries. Costumed docents help to explain rooms and furnishings in the palace and it’s worth taking a tour with one of the Historic Scotland guides for an overview of the castle’s history. Be sure to check out the various galleries, especially the one that displays the ceiling bosses from the time of King James.
While the tour of Stirling Castle and the Whisky tasting were fine, the trip to Loch Lomond was a total disappointment. We went to a very touristy town where the only view of Loch Lomond was looking out over a boat basin. Instead of seeing what is supposed to be the most beautiful lake in Scotland, all we saw were dozens of small power boats docked in a basin.
I am just not the best person for these kind of trips. I was spoiled by my first day trip with Rabbie- just six of us on a little tour of the Black Island. There weren't a lot of stops and we had eniough time at each. On this one, Stirling Castle and lunch stops were too short; the whiskey stop was too long, with nothing for someone who didn't like whiskey to do.
Our driver, Grant, was very knowledgeable in the local area as well as in the history of the area. We saw a lot more than we expected and had a great time. Never felt rushed and really enjoyed the tour including the Glengoyne distillery at the end!
