What You Can Expect

Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky Trail Small Group Day Trip from Glasgow

Loch Lomond, Scotland

Leave behind the city and get a taste of Scotland off-the-beaten-path! Your 9-hour trip through the wild Scottish Highlands starts in central Glasgow. In the morning, gather with your small group and board a luxury minivan for the first short leg of your trip to Stirling. 

Disembark at Stirling Castle, a critical medieval stronghold that has perched atop its rocky summit since 1000 BC. The former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots, the castle showcases fine architecture and furnishings, which you’re welcome to view with an optional tour (own expense). 

Afterwards, head into the wild country, passing Doune Castle and Callander en route to Trossachs National Park. As your coach travels through rolling hills and green pastures, your expert guide will share fascinating true and fictitious tales about local figures like William Wallace, Rob Roy MacGregor and the illustrious Robin Hood. 

Stop in the quaint 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 pop into the rustic Glengoyne whisky distillery. Buy yourself a tour and nip of local whisky, or just visit the shop. 

Your full-day trip concludes with evening drop-off at the departure point in Glasgow.

Great tour and such a nice day! Highly recommend getting out of Glasgow to see the countryside. Stirling Castle is amazing. The scenery around the loch was so beautiful. The whisky stop was really very cool. Ian was our guide and he did a great job. So much history and stories shared. We all have very fond memories of him as a guide. It was such a nice day and thank you to Ian for the memories you left us with.

Our driver was well informed, entertaining and funny as well. He was so great that had we had more time, we'd have booked another tour with him as our driver. The tour was great as well. So worth it.

Enjoyed the tour. The guide kept us on schedule without rushing. Explained in detail what we were seeing and even provided music. The package included what you would want to see in a day trip within Scotland. Easy to find the shuttle downtown and the driver even dropped us off near a cab when the tour was over.

Our tour guide was great and imparted lots of interesting facts and stories to us. We were a little ahead of ourselves, so we also got a quick drive by the castle where they filmed the Monty Python movie. Stirling Castle was interesting with people dressed up who would tell you about their character's life at the castle. Sort of a low key Walt Disney experience, but very effective. The whiskey tour was well organized and very interesting. We had an enjoyable day.
