We collect you from your hotel in our luxury vehicle at 8.30am. Our Stirling and three lochs tour offers a great blend of historic sites and beautiful scenery. On this tour we visit Stirling and head to the most famous battle in Scottish history, Bannockburn. In 1314 Robert The Bruce defeated the might of the English army to regain Scotland’s independence. A monument stands where The Bruce had his command post and orchestrated what was to be, one of the greatest victories on Scottish soil.
Stirling Castle is our next stop. This landmark towering over the city is very similar to Edinburgh Castle in appearance. Most of what you will see and fully explore today was built by the Stewart monarchy in the late 14oo’s to mid 1500s.
Not too far away stands another dedication to a Scottish hero – The Wallace Monument commemorating William Wallace (Braveheart!). Overlooking Stirling bridge, this monument marks the site where William Wallace commanded a famous victory over the might of the English army in 1297. We usually make this a photo stop, however, if we are doing very well for time and you can handle the 246 steps on the narrow, spiral staircase, we can possibly include a visit.
Finally we head to the Highland boundary fault line in the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. We take the scenic route around Loch Venachar, Loch Achray and Loch Drunkie on the spectacular Dukes Pass. This tour gives you a little taste of the Highlands without the lengthy drive involved in a typical highland tour from Edinburgh.
