Nous quittons Edimbourg et nous traversons le comté de Linlithgow, tout empreint d’un charme historique. Votre guide vous aidera à repérer Linlithgow palace (Palais de Linlithgow), là où naquit Marie, Reine d’Ecosse.
Sur le chemin de Stirling, vous vous arrêtez au Monument des Kelpies. Ces deux têtes de chevaux sont un hommage à la puissance des chevaux qui ont propulsé le développement industriel de l’Ecosse centrale.
Vous vous dirigez vers les Trossachs, connues aussi comme “les Hautes Terres en miniature”. C’est là que les Lowlands (Basses-Terres) se croisent avec les Highlands (Hautes-Terres). Des montagnes escarpées, des lochs miroitants et des forêts denses: cette région est superbe.
Vous faites une halte sur les berges de Loch Lomond, le plus grand loch d’Ecosse, protégé en tant que premier Parc National d’Ecosse.
C’est l’endroit parfait pour faire une promenade agréable le long des jolies berges et apprécier les merveilleuses vues sur les montagnes. Dans cette région tranquille vécut autrefois Rob Roy MacGregor, célèbre héros populaire des Hautes Terres. En vous promenant dans les sentiers près du loch, vous marchez sur les pas de l’une des figures légendaires la plus importante d’Ecosse.
Vous vous arrêtez pour déjeuner dans le cœur du Parc National, puis vous continuez jusqu’à Stirling où vous pouvez visiter l’un des châteaux les plus magnifiques d’Ecosse. Si vous le désirez, vous pouvez en explorer l’intérieur et comprendre pourquoi ce château a joué un rôle si important dans l’Histoire de l’Ecosse.
De là ce n’est qu’un court trajet de retour sur Edimbourg, passant à nouveau devant les Kelpies avant d’arriver dans la capitale.
Leave Edinburgh and travel through the historic grace of Linlithgowshire. Your guide will help you spot Linlithgow palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots.
On the way to Loch Lomond you stop at the Kelpies Monument. These two horses’ heads stand as a testament to the horse power that drove the industrial development of Central Scotland.
From here you head to the shores of Loch Lomond, which is Scotland’s largest loch and is protected as Scotland’s first National Park.
This is the perfect place to enjoy a walk along the ‘bonny banks’ and take in fantastic views of the mountains. This tranquil area was once the home of Scotland’s famous highland folk hero, Rob Roy MacGregor. By spending time on the trails by the loch you’ll be walking in the footsteps of one of Scotland’s greatest legends.
You then head into the Trossachs or ‘The Highlands in Miniature’, where the Lowlands meet the Highlands. Steep mountains, shimmering lochs, and thick forests: this area is stunning.
You stop for lunch in the heart of the National Park then continue to the city of Stirling where you can visit one of Scotland’s most magnificent castles. You can choose to take in the views from inside and understand why this castle was so instrumental in Scottish history.

From here our short journey back to Edinburgh passes the Kelpies once again before arriving back in the Capital.
In early-August, my wife and I visited Edinburgh for the first time. We signed up for the 1 day tour to see the Kelpies, Loch Lomond and Stirling Castle. The outing could not have been more enjoyable. We had just the right amount of time at each stop, and the riding time was kept to a minimum. Our guide, John, was outstanding. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful with suggestions about Edinburgh. We highly recommend both the tour and John!
The Kelpies were unimaginable in their grandeur. As the tour traversed the lovely Scottish countryside to the breathtaking Loch Lomond National Park, we were kept entertained by Parkie (David) with the very pleasant and adept driver Ken. The walk at Loch Lomond was one of my favorite Scotland adventures. We took our lunch in Aberfoyle. We had a delicious meal at the Aberfoyle Inn with GRACIOUS and WONDERFUL folks. From there we moved on to Stirling Castle. The tour was so incredibly well done and so very interesting with our guide Russell. EXCELLENT trip.
Saw parts of Scotland near Edinburgh and Glasgow that I would have never otherwise seen!
Had an awesome 1 day tour of the Kelpies, Loch Lomond and Stirling Castle with guide Alan on May 11th. Beautiful weather, amazing sites and Alan was so friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to anyone!
Eric was an incredibly fun, witty, and knowledgeable tour guide! I’ll be retelling his tales around campfires for years to come. He genuinely loves his country and sharing it with others, a great quality for a guide. Eric made a good experience into a great one and deserves a raise because there’s certainly many people who will be booking more tours because of him.
I went on a day tour of Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and the Kelpies, right after the Fringe Festival. Our tour guide was William, and Ken was the driver. Our group was so nice, lots of solo travelers like myself, so I had loads of fun chatting with everybody and sharing experiences from our various home countries (New Zealand, U.S., Germany, Finland, Malaysia, Canada, and France). William was a great tour guide, giving lots of little-known facts and background information on sites we saw. I love that he played lots of music on our tour, too! He really tried to make everybody feel comfortable and welcomed. Id definitely go on a tour again - especially with William and/or Ken! :)
and will definitely be booking another Rabbies Day Tour. Apologies for some of the picts not being rotated properly when you look at my Photo Album. This was a great tour. Had time to myself as well as with the group. I think the best thing about it was that you can make what you want of the tour. I had a cup of tea with locals in Aberfoyle but at the same time was able to chat with other folks in the group and our Guides. Tonks Rules! Last thing, shout out to Rosaria for some amazing driving!
The other tour companies dont include the Kelpies in this tour and they are well worth seeing. James is the one who said that the one looks like hes going wild and tother is mortified! He encouraged us to climb the mountain by Loch Lomond to enjoy the view and we made it! He recommended a great place to eat in Callender - Mohr Bread their steak and haggis pie is DELICIOUS! And he gave an excellent commentary everywhere we went. My 6th or 7th picture came up sideways - its of a ceiling and tapestry in Stirling Castle. I hope I/we get back to Edinburgh again and go on another Rabbies Tour or two.
Absolutely enjoyed the Stirling Castle Loch Lomond 1 Day Tour. The guide was informative and entertaining and the views were lovely.
We are in love for Scotland. Thank you for the best service.
The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.
We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.
Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.
If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.
We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.
It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.
Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.
Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.
We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.
We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.
You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.
We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.
You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.
Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.
We advise you take out travel insurance.
You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
