Leaving Glasgow, you'll travel north-east to Stirling, where your first stop is the Wallace Monument; a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace. Inside, you will find fascinating exhibits leading you through the life of the real Braveheart and most impressive of all, Wallace’s legendary 5-foot, 6-inch, or 1.7- meter, broadsword.

You'll then travel further north to Gleneagles Hotel Estate - one of Scotland’s world-class golf resorts and site of the 2014 Ryder Cup. Enjoy a photo opportunity here, and see where the international legends of golf play.

You'll continue your journey through the pretty countryside of Perthshire to your next stop in Crieff, where you'll visit The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery. Learn about the traditional whiskey-making process, see how you measure up to the world’s largest bottle of whiskey, and sample some of ‘The Water of Life’ itself at the fantastic Taste Experience bar. You can also enjoy an exclusive tasting of the Black Grouse Alpha Edition; a rich, smoky blend available only at Glenturret Distillery.  Enjoy a range of tasty lunch options in the Glenturret Cafe or take a stroll in the distillery grounds.

In the afternoon you'll travel west past beautiful Loch Earn and down through Strathyre to Kilmahog Woollen Mill for the chance to meet Highland Cows. You'll then continue on through the Trossachs - Scotland’s first national park, known as ‘the Highlands in miniature’ for its abundance of lochs, mountains, and forests, where you’ll discover the lands of legendary outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. You'll then make a brief refreshment stop in the pretty town of Aberfoyle before returning to Glasgow.
