We continue on, past medieval Doune Castle, (2) to the pretty town of Callander, (3) situated on the banks of River Teith in Stirlingshire, where we stop to enjoy some lunch. From here we enter The Trossachs National Park, also known as "The Highlands in Miniature" for its abundance of lochs, mountains and forests, and famous as the homeland of legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor.

We then reach the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond, (4) one of the prettiest and largest lochs in the whole of Scotland. Here you can enjoy an hour long cruise* taking in 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, (5) with its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across the loch’s western shoreline. We then travel back to Edinburgh.

Beautiful Sightings - Lomond and Stirling

We went to Loch Lomond and Stirling castle. Though the weather was very Scottish - drizzling and raining - it was a revitalizing trip. The stories told by the guide gave colours to the trip, and the scenery was both beatiful all those forests - and exciting the loch and the small village of Loss with it´s viking gravestone.
The castle was a beatiful fortress with a poor exhibition and a rather tired military museum. It was well organized and perfectly prepared and served by the guide.
This is good thing to do - in all weather.


Phenomenal experience. We took the tour starting in Edinburgh, driving to Loch Lomand and Stirling Castle. Our guide, Marty, was hilarious, engaging, knowledgeable, and entertaining. He told great stories about Scots, gave us an amazingly detailed and entertaining history about William Wallace, Robert the Bruce, and Rob Roy while we were driving, and then explained context for the places we visited with regards to those great Scots.

The lunch stop was perfect- delicious and affordable options. The stops at Loch Lomand and Stirling Castle were perfectly timed for exploration, tours, and enjoyment without dragging on.

If you want to see the highlands and a gorgeous lake, and enjoy Scotland, this tour is perfect. 10/10. Will recommend to friends.

Some Places We Will Visit

  • Aberfoyle

    The sleepy village of Aberfoyle suddenly bursts into life in the summer with the arrival of hordes of tourists. It lies on the edge of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and, along with Callander to the east, is one of the main tourist centres for the Trossachs.

  • Stirling

    As you'd expect with such a strategically important town, Stirling has a long and fascinating history and is packed with major historical sights.

  • Balmaha

    Balmaha located on the East Shore of Loch Lomond is a great stopping off point at the foot of the Conic Hill. This beautiful place has been slowly transformed into a popular tourist destination on the Loch. Balmaha is an ideal spot for walkers on the West Highland Way. The name Balmaha is said to be originated from the Gaelic from the St Maha’s place giving the village an ancient origin.
