As you drive north-east out of Edinburgh you can marvel at the engineering feat that are The Kelpies, two 30-meetre-high horse-head sculptures. Then, as you travel through Stirlingshire, our guide will bring to life the turbulent times of William Wallace – dramatised in the film Braveheart – and explain his link to the countryside you're passing through. We'll stop at the beautfiul city of Stirling for about two hours. This gives you ample time to explore the stunning castle (at own expense) or stroll through the beautiful and ancient streets that surround it.
Our route then takes you over the Duke's Pass where you will experience dramatic views of the Trossachs National Park and it's lochs, home of the Highland rogue Rob Roy. We then make our way to Aberfoyle, a small holiday village at the southern edge of the West highland Fault and the heart of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park for lunch. Finishing off our time in Loch Lomond, we visit the beautiful loch side village of Balmaha where you can take a short but steep hill up to Craigie Fort to enjoy stunning views of the Loch, or you can enjoy the bonnie banks on flat ground.
Our final stop is one of Scotland's prettiest distillieries, Glengoyne*(own expense). Here you can learn the process of how they create the perfect dram, and you can taste a couple too! If you arent interested in whisky you can walk to the nearby Dumgoyne Hill and take in the stunning waterfall and tranquil glen that sits behind the distillery, before we head back to Edinburgh.
