What You Can Expect

Glasgow Shore Excursion: Loch Lomond, The Trossachs and Stirling Castle

Visit Loch Lomond on your shore excursion

Your 7.5-hour Glasgow shore excursion begins with morning pickup from Greenock Port. Meet your guide and board the air-conditioned coach for a short ride through the rugged Scottish countryside to Stirling.

Your first stop is Stirling Castle, a critical medieval stronghold and former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots. With your 1.5 hours of free time here, stroll the grounds and snap photos, or purchase an optional interior tour and see some of the spectacular rooms including the Great Hall and James V’s Palace. Learn about the site’s colorful history riddled with battles such as the Battle of Stirling Bridge, led by the legendary William Wallace. Then continue to Doune Castle for another unique photo opportunity.

Afterwards, head into the wild country, coursing though rolling hills and green pastures to Kilmahog at the edge of Trossachs National Park. As your coach travels through the Highlands, admire the natural and cultural sights like ‘wee hairy coos’ (cattle) with long, thick coats set against a breathtaking backdrop.

Your expert guide will narrate the journey through Trossachs National Park, giving historical context to the present-day surroundings like the sweet 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 buy yourself a nip of local whisky.

Your full-day trip concludes with return service to Greenock port, arriving by evening.

Was a wonderful tour. The Loch Lomond area was beautiful and relaxing. Stirling Castle was remarkable. Our guide said the only thing we will say about it was that we had too little of time and we agree. It would have been nice to tour this castle without time constraint. Would love to go back and just spend half a day there

The tour was wonderful with a special added surprise since we were in a small shuttle bus. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. We visited Stirling Castle and learned a lot about Robert the Bruce and William Wallace, Loch Lomand and the beautiful little town of Luss, lunch in Aberfoyle and then through the Trossachs and the special surprise stop at Doune Castle for all Monty Python and Outlander fans. Loved it!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

This was an excellent tour. The countryside is beautiful and the Trossachs were spectacular. Our tour ran 15 minutes late due to a company policy that the driver had to wait 15 minutes for a couple that did not show, and put us behind at Stirling Castle. The other tour groups had 2hrs and this is minimum to view the castle. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and works with Timberbush Tours. Very professional and excellent driver and tour guide. Timberbrush tours were fantastic.
