Shared Tour: Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond National Park & Whisky Tour
Experience the Highlands’ natural forests, lochs and mountains in Loch Lomond National Park and feel Scotland’s past in the heartland of its great heroes - Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. Visit the medieval stronghold of Stirling Castle and sample single malt whisky at Glengoyne Distillery. This tour is for those who love tales of Rob Roy and Braveheart, Renaissance palaces and a healthy walk in the Loch Lomond National Park, before relaxing with a fine malt whisky. You travel first to Stirling Castle where you can visit this imposing stronghold, the favourite residence of the Stuart kings, where Mary Queen of Scots was crowned. You then continue into the beautiful forest-covered mountains of the Trossachs and stop for lunch in the heart of the National Park. This area, on the southern edge of the Highlands was home to Rob Roy MacGregor, the famous Scottish outlaw.
From here a short drive takes you to the “bonnie, bonnie banks” of Loch Lomond. At Loch Lomond you can visit the National Park Centre or walk along part of the West Highland Way to a hilltop viewpoint with spectacular views of the loch. Afterwards visit the malt whisky distillery of Glengoyne for a tour and dram before your return journey to Glasgow.
