What People Are Saying About Stirling Castle
I had read that this tour was expensive considering it did not include the cost of the boat ride on the Loch nor entry to Stirling Castle but I would have to say that it was worth every single pound because of the tour guide / driver Mark Addison. Mark's knowledge and passion for Scotland was exceptional and infectious. His beautiful charming personality and "no question is a silly question" attitude made the trip extra special. The whole drive was amazing, the scenery spectacular and I'm really glad I paid the extra to go on the Loch tour and go into Stirling Castle. I would have loved more time exploring Stirling Castle but understand why this isn't possible on this particular tour - if you don't want to pay the extra to go into the Castle there isn't much to do apart from walking into Stirling, which would be sensational but it isn't for the faint hearted as it is very steep.
Taxi was on time to drive me from my hotel to the meeting point. The bus driver was at the same time a perfect guide with extensive knowledge of Scottish history and sights. To my regret the bus passed its relatively short way through the highlands without a stop for a photo. Participants should not hesitate to ask for a stop at this part of the journey.
Loved the tour of Loch Lomond. Sterling castle and the Trossachs. Bus driver, Graham did an amazing job both driving the bus and describing what we were seeing along the way. Great to be able to see a little of Glasgow as well. The only slight criticism was that Sterling Castle was quite expensive to enter and it didn't seem worth the money to only spend slightly more than an hour there. If you don't go in and see the castle there is not a lot of other things to do in Sterling. All in all though we enjoyed the day and would recommend it.
