What You Can Expect

Stirling Castle and Loch Lomond Small Group Day Trip from Edinburgh

Loch Lomond, Scotland

Set high on a volcanic outcrop at the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, the 16th-century Stirling Castle was once the favored residence of Mary Queen of Scots. After pickup in central Edinburgh, travel here by Mercedes minivan and use your complimentary discount card to reduce your entrance fee at Stirling Castle, open daily. 

Leaving Stirling behind, you'll drive past Doune Castle, Callander and into the Trossachs — the territory of Rob Roy MacGregor, Scotland's Robin Hood. Reaching the village of Aberfoyle, your guide makes a leisurely stop for lunch (own expense).

Afterward, take a back road to Loch Lomond, traveling through the protected lands of Scotland’s first national park: Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Follow a scenic route along the 22-mile-long (35-km) loch’s eastern shore, which is dominated by the oft-climbed Ben Lomond. 

You have roughly 1.5 hours to spend at Loch Lomond; join your guide for a narrated walk to the viewpoint overlooking the loch, or perhaps order a whisky at a local hotel while taking in the views. Your small-group day trip concludes with the return drive to Edinburgh.

Great tour and a lot of fun. The tour guide was fun and knowledgeable. We had enough time to view the castle and see the graveyard. We got great views of Loch Lomond.

Rabbies people and service were fantastic. James M. was a wonderful guide to Stirling and Loch Lomand, also making a few unplanned stops that were true highlights. Brilliant.
