We start our journey of approximately 1 hour travelling to Stirling castle, one of Scotland’s largest and most important castle's. Sitting atop Castle Hill surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs you will see some breath taking views. Home to generations of Scottish monarchs including Mary Queen of Scots, the castle is an enduring and powerful reminder of Scotland’s history. With our extended stop here you will have plenty of time to explore.
From Stirling Castle we will make our way to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Along the route you will see Loch Venachar and an array of mountains and beautiful scenery. As we make our way to Aberfoyle for Lunch we will travel along The Dukes pass, a road that is regarded as one of Britain’s best drives.
After Lunch in Aberfoyle we head for Loch Lomond – Loch Laomainn in Scottish Gaelic meaning - Lake of the Elms. We will make a stop in the picturesque village Balmaha where you can enjoy a walk along the “bonnie, bonnie banks”.
Leaving Balmaha we will make our way to The Kelpies, The largest equine sculptures in the world. The Kelpies stand at an impressive 30 meters high built next to an extension of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The 2 horse’s heads represent the lineage of the heavy horse of Scottish industry.
From here a short journey will take you back to your pick up point.
