Stirling Castle was amazing! I just think it was so hard for the people who lived during the times when there was great war and suffering and how they managed to build these huge castles on the top of rock. Loch Lomond was okay, It rained the entire boat ride so I couldn't get any photos. I do believe that if the weather would have been pretty the boat ride would have been more appealing. The rest of the trip was well planned. I felt like we had traveled very far and the entire tour we were very close to Edinburgh. Our guide was funny and made sure that we got the most out of our tour.

Was great to see Stirling castle and Robert the Bruce statue, and see the fields where the Battle of Bannockburn took place from the castle.

I can't say enough good things about this trip! I was traveling with my sister and her guide dog and from the moment I booked this right until we were dropped back off, the tour company was so welcoming and accommodating to make sure that my sister and her guide dog enjoyed themselves. I am easy to please but I will admit that I was nervous booking a coach trip with a guide dog. It was our first time doing this so it was a new adventure for both my sister and her guide dog. I didn't want her to miss out on the experience of exploring some of these places outside Edinburgh so I am so thankful the company helped this be so successful. Our driver/guide Graham was so helpful in making sure my sister and her dog were comfortable and that we had easy accessibility at all of our stops. My sister and I enjoyed the audio tour at Stirling Castle and thought it was a good use of our time there. We did have enough time to do the audio tour and explore almost everything. We enjoyed the cruise around Loch Lomond too. Overall we had a great day and the tour company along with our driver made this a really memorable part of our trip.

Great tour! Saw everything we wanted to and more. It's a lengthy drive but plenty of stops along the way and sights to see.

On the second of our two excursions added to our original travel plans, drove extensively through Glasgow which was a treat as it was the birthplace of my wife's great-great grandmother. From there we then visited Loch Lomond, famously known because of the Scottish song of the same name You take the high road.... We did opt to purchase the one-hour boat ride and enjoyed it on a sunny morning, although I think it would have been more memorable to take the cruise in the late afternoon approaching dusk based on the images in my mind from RunRig's YouTube video with the song. Afterward, we stopped for a decent lunch in Aberfoyle. The drive through the Highlands was both pleasant and scenic. From there, we stopped at Stirling Castle which we'd already visited but it only gave the other coach members 1.5 hours to tour too short while we took photos of the Rob Roy and Robert Burns statues in town. We then departed for Edinburgh, passing the beautiful Kelpies on the roadway. I would strongly recommend Viator building a short stop 1/2 hour at the Kelpies in Falkirk for a photo opportunity, rather than trying to photograph them through the windows of a moving coach bus.

If you arrive in Scotland and want to see and feel the history of the castles and battle sites of William Wallace and others who fought for freedom from the English, this is a must see ! Our tour was assigned by Viator to Gray Line Highland Tours and we were picked up at our Hotel, which by the way is one of the few tour companies left that does this as a courtesy. Graham was our bus driver/tour guide and we spent the day visiting sites of history,with Scottish music playing softly on the bus while looking at the Loch's lakes,and imaging the fighting so long ago on the severe terrain's. Our guide was humorous and very knowledgeable. It was a fun day and seemed to end too quickly ! There are other day trips that take you to other parts of the lowlands and highlands. If you by chance get Graham for your tour guide? it will be even more special ! If your interest is traveling for history of the places you visit, then I recommend : reading William Wallace The King's Enemy by D.J.Gray. As always, we can count on Viator for the best tours and guides. Happy Travels.......

We had a lovely day. Our tour driver was interesting and entertaining.We enjoyed the songs he played about Loch Lomond. It was very scenic .The stop at Sterling Castle was too short. There was so much history to take in.
It was a great trip and I'm glad we took it.
