Full description

See the highlights of Scotland including a historic castle, the Highland Whisky Distillery, and the Scottish Highlands. Learn all about the history of the area from your local guide.

After departing Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city and one that’s full of character, a great music scene, and plenty of wonderful restaurants, your guide will take you north to the historic city of Stirling.

This is your chance to visit Stirling Castle, a notably prominent feature on the skyline steeped in some of the most magnificent history in the country. It’s believed to have been besieged at least 16 times and changed hands many times during the Wars of Independence.

Enjoy free time to explore the castle and even join one of their scheduled tours led by the expert Castle guides. Next, your guide will whisk you over to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to experience the magnificent Scottish Highlands. Witness the Highland boundary fault line, the area of Scotland where the Scottish Lowlands and Highlands crashed together millions of years ago.

Go for a short walk and truly experience the breathtaking Highland landscape in all its glory. Your guide will regale you with some of the wonderful histories of the area, and introduce you to the wildlife and what makes Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park such a special place. Next, it's time for the tasty part of the tour, a deliciously smooth Highland Whisky Distillery. Your guide will take you over to Glengoyne Distillery where you will want to take a tour and learn all about “uisge beatha” Gaelic for “water of life”.

Hear about the entire whisky-making process and even get to delight your taste buds with a wee dram or two, and you might even want to take home a bottle for a nightcap occasionally. So, after having a wonderful day tour and experiencing a diverse range of what Scotland has to offer, your guide will wish you farewell and take you back to Glasgow for you to continue your Great Scottish Adventure. The Stirling Castle, Whisky Distillery, and Loch Lomond guided day tour may be explored in reverse.
