Great Tour! Great guide - Andy was fantastic, right down to the singing and dancing - careful, you're next!
The Mercedes mini van is very comfortable and so nicely new it made the bit of driving easy to handle.
The amount of time at Stirling Castle allowed for us to take the tour and the time at Loch Lomond was enough to allow for a short hike to a grand vista point and still get a hot cup of coffee to go! The whiskey distillery was very interesting and the tour guides are extremely knowledgeable. Andy pointed out lots of interesting facts and funny stories. We really enjoyed our time.

I did this tour end of October and loved it! Met the guide Collins at Waterloo Place and boarded Hearts of Scotland Tours wee red bus to Stirling Castle. The bus was very comfortable and safe fire extinguisher, first aid kit and emergency instructions given. Had a few hours at the magnificent Stirling Castle and it was empty! Had time to walk around without the crowds and enjoy a bite to eat at the Unicorn Cafe. Stopped by the side of the road to take pictures of the ever so cute Highland Cows!! Then onwards to Loch Lomond for walking along the trails, bay. The Oak Tree Inn for lunch and drams of whiskey and beer. Ended the day at Glengoyne for whiskey tour and tasting!! YUM! Sláinte mhaith! Water of life The day was perfectly paced and got to experience so much. The guides make such a difference on the experience. Thank you!!

We loved our tour and Angela!! She was so upbeat and interesting. Her knowledge of Scotland was amazing, as was her choice of music to go along with our tour. We were here to visit my son and our group of 7 loved every minute of the tour.

Wonderful trip to some beautiful places. Our Guide, Niall, was great...really smart, entertaining and thoughtful. We loved getting the special little stop for a few photos at Doune Castle, too. Overall, a fantastic 1-day excursion!

This is a perfect day tour for those spending a few days in Edinburgh. The combination of castle lake whisky, as well as the enjoyable scenery viewed from the minibus, gives you a very nice glimpse of the country. Iain, our guide and driver, was able to share with us an amazing amount of knowledge, not only related to what we were seeing, but to Scottish life in general, all with a very positive humour!

And the Mercedes minibus itself is superb: spatious, comfy and brand new, the perfect place to sit and relax while admiring the landscape and listening to the pipes...
