Itinerario

Partendo da Edimburgo alle 09:15, attraversiamo le bellezze storiche del Linlithgowshire. La vostra guida vi aiuterà a individuare il Palazzo di Linlithgow, città natale di Maria Regina di Scozia.

Lungo la strada per Stirling ci fermiamo alla monumentale scultura dei Kelpies. Queste due teste equine si ergono a testimonianza e celebrazione della potenza del cavallo, motore dello sviluppo industriale della Scozia centrale.

Ci dirigiamo poi verso i Trossachs, ovvero “le Highlands in miniatura”, dove le Lowlands si uniscono alle Highlands. Con le sue ripide montagne, i suoi laghi scintillanti e fitti boschi, questa zona è stupefacente.

Ci fermiamo poi sulle rive del Loch Lomond, il più grande lago scozzese e zona protetta come primo Parco Nazionale della Scozia.

Questo è il luogo ideale per godervi una passeggiata lungo le “bonny banks” (le belle rive) e ammirare le splendide viste delle montagne. Questa stupenda zona tranquilla era un tempo dimora di Rob Roy MacGregor, famoso eroe popolare delle Highlands. Passeggiando lungo i sentieri intorno al lago, ripercorrerete le orme di una delle più grandi leggende di Scozia.

Faremo una sosta per pranzo nel cuore del Parco Nazionale per poi proseguire verso la città di Stirling, dove potrete visitare uno dei castelli più belli della Scozia.

Chi vuole potrà godersi le viste dall’interno e capire perché questo castello fu di fondamentale importanza nella storia scozzese.

Da qui riprenderemo il breve viaggio di ritorno a Edimburgo, passando nuovamente per i Kelpies prima di arrivare nella capitale.

Orario di ritorno previsto: 18:15 circa.

Wonderful day!

Jessica Porter Posted on 24/08/2016

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!

On tour with Gillian

Lisette Blokker Posted on 29/04/2016

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/ Stirling Castle

Patti Mark Posted on 29/09/2015

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!

Beautiful Day Fun Tour

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.

All was perfect

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

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.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

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.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

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.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

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.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

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.

How much time do I get off the bus?

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.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

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.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

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.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

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.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
