Kundenrezensionen

My father and I had a wonderful day touring Loch Lomand and Stirling with Fergus. Loch Lomand was beautiful and gave us a chance to stretch our legs. Stirling Castle was fascinating and filled with history and wonderful photo opportunities. Wed gone from Edinburgh and my only regret was not making a purchase at the Stirling gift shop. Their shops offered higher quality tweeds and other gifts at a lower price than we saw in Edinburgh and other shops. Fergus was a great guide!

It was an excellent tour with Jodie giving good historical information regularly during the travel.

Loved it! Gillian knew a lot about the sights and surroundings, and supported her story with some lovely Scottish music. Also, she squeezed in some extra stops, which is always a bonus. The trip was beautiful, and the weather was distinctly Scottish (four seasons in a day – or rather, in an hour). I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see some Scottish landscapes and learn some of its history, but doesn’t have too much time to spare. It makes you want to come back!

Gordon, our tour guide, took us to Stirling Castle and the National Park. He is a university student from the Highlands. He did an excellent job and was very entertaining. Very impressed with his knowledge of the area and the history. Had a great day!

Aaron was my tour guide for this one day trip and he was great! He has only been with the company for a few weeks but you could clearly see he had great energy and was very passionate about his job. He combined some great facts with some humorous stories which we all had a good laugh at. Keep up that great energy! What a great last day in Scotland.

Full Itinerary (English)

Depart Edinburgh 09.15am and travel northwest through the historic area of Linlithgowshire, close to the historic palace. The tragic Mary Queen of Scots was born at Linlithgow palace, and became Queen when she was only 6 days old. According to legend her father James V died of a broken heart when he discovered his wife had given birth to a daughter and not the son he was hoping for! Your route along the Forth Valley is one which has been used for thousands of years by invading armies; it was the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire and was later used by the English King Edward I as he marched proudly towards Stirling (only to be sent homewards to think again!). Nowadays it’s at the centre of one of Scotland’s most important industries with huge oil refineries dominating the area.

As you approach Stirling the magnificent castle dominates your view and you make your way up towards the high volcanic rock where it imposes itself upon the surrounding land. Known as the ‘Key to Scotland’, for centuries this was the most important castle in Scotland and the views from the top make it easy to see why.
To the north is the 220ft high tower of the National Wallace Monument commemorating Scotland’s great hero William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the Oscar-winning movie Braveheart. From the castle you can look down over the scene of Wallace’s greatest triumph, the battle of Stirling Bridge, where he defeated the English army in 1297. To the south is Bannockburn where, in 1314, the great Scottish warrior-king Robert the Bruce defeated the English army of Edward II. The battle was fought for possession of Stirling Castle but eventually led to a far greater prize for Scotland – the restoration of independence. It’s an area alive with history and you stop at the castle to give you time to soak up the history and heritage of this great site.

From Stirling you head into the Highlands and an area known as the Trossachs. Known as ‘The Highlands in Miniature’, it marks the point where the Lowlands meet the Highlands and entering this beautifully picturesque area feels like going into a different country. You will stop for lunch in the town of Callander, popular in Victorian times for its wonderful location and clean mountain air. With its shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens it’s easy to forget that this area was once thought of as a dangerous frontier fought over by the fiercely territorial Highland clans.

After lunch you ‘take the high road’ or back-road to Loch Lomond, Scotland’s largest lochs at over 22 miles long, your will travel through the protected lands of Scotland’s first National Park. The route you take is along the eastern shores, a beautiful sheltered stretch of the loch with noble mountains dominated by Ben Lomond, one of the most climbed mountains in Scotland and our most southerly “Munro”.

You stop on the shores of the loch, the perfect place to enjoy a walk along the ‘bonny banks’, up to a viewpoint for a fantastic view of the loch and the mountain it’s named after, Ben Lomond. This tranquil area was once the home of Scotland’s famous highland folk hero, Rob Roy MacGregor. Made popular by many books and films Rob Roy lived an incredible life as a soldier, businessman, cattle-rustler and outlaw. By spending time on the trails by the loch you will undoubtedly be walking in the footsteps of one of Scotland’s great legends. There is also an alternative option to enjoy a drink at the local inn and sample the views. Leaving Loch Lomond you head east through the agricultural lands found on the west of Stirling. This area which was once an impassable bogland, inhabited only by wildfowl and a few outlaws. In the 1760s families were attracted here with offers of land and reduced rents provided they cleared the peat and expose the rich clay beneath. This scheme came to an end in 1865 and the area now is associated with some of the best hay cultivation in Britain. From here it is a short journey back to Edinburgh.

Return time - approx. 18.00
