Day Tour (dep. Glasgow)
Culture Vultures, First Timers
Once this Loch Lomond tour departs from Glasgow, you travel via the picturesque Campsie Fells, before your first stop at Loch Lomond, also known as one of the prettiest and largest lochs in the whole of Scotland. Here, you can enjoy an hour long cruise* taking in the spectacular views of the loch’s many islands and the surrounding mountains. Alternatively, take a stroll through the picturesque loch-side conservation village of Luss. Admire its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across the loch’s western shoreline.
You then travel on for some lunch in Aberfoyle. This small village is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Trossachs National Park, just below the Highland faultline. After lunch, your Loch Lomond tour continues the journey of exploration through the Trossachs – Scotland’s first national park. The Trossachs is also known as ‘the Highlands in miniature’. It offers an abundance of lochs, mountains and forests. It is as well the homeland of legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor.
In the early afternoon, your last stop of the tour is the magnificent Stirling Castle. The castle, sitting high on volcanic rock, offers wonderful views of the landscape. You will have time to visit the castle and learn of the exploits of key historic figures including William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots. With lots of interesting things to see and do here, the Stirling Castle experience is well worth a visit.
