Duration: 1 day
This day trip will see you explore the mystical Loch Lomond and historical Stirling Castle. You will pass Glasgow and head north to the famous ‘Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond’. Revered by the Scottish people and always a jewel to discover for visitors, this part of Scotland offers the opportunity to experience an authentic Scottish adventure. Taking time to admire views of the magnificent Ben Lomond, you will then travel further into Loch Lomond and the wonderful Trossachs National Park. You can even discover the Highland village of Aberfoyle, which was often frequented by Sir Walter Scott and is perfect for some lunch and traditional village shopping.
The afternoon will be spent in the city of Stirling, where you can visit Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s most significant structures, both historically and architecturally. Many Royals have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary Queen of Scots. It is reported that the world’s oldest football was found in her chambers! The beautiful Church of the Holy Rude is also a must-see monument and this church continues to serve the community of Stirling today. As Stirling was central to William Wallace’s fight in the Wars of Independence, this day trip is not to be missed by those who wish to find out more about Scotland’s story.
