Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and Whisky Trail Small Group Day Tour from Glasgow

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Leave behind the city and get a taste of Scotland off-the-beaten-path! Your full-day trip through the wild Scottish Highlands starts in central Glasgow. In the morning, gather with your small group and board a top-of-the-range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the first short leg of your trip to Stirling. 

    Disembark at Stirling Castle, a critical medieval stronghold that has perched atop its rocky summit since 1000 BC. The former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots, the castle showcases fine architecture and furnishings, which you’re welcome to view with an optional tour (own expense). 

    Afterwards, head into the wild country, passing Doune Castle and Callander en route to Trossachs National Park. As your coach travels through rolling hills and green pastures, your expert guide shares fascinating true and fictitious tales about local figures like William Wallace, Rob Roy MacGregor, and the illustrious Robin Hood. 

    Then head to Loch Lomond, the last stop on your trip. Stroll on the banks of this tranquil lake and pop into the rustic Glengoyne whisky distillery. Buy yourself a tour and nip of local whisky, or just visit the shop. 

    Your full-day trip concludes with evening drop-off at the departure point in Glasgow.

    REALLY enjoyed this tour. I usually love traveling alone—going at my own pace, finding out-of-the-way travel delights—and I was worried that I would feel rushed or wouldn't be able to enjoy a group tour. But I was also exhausted toward the end of my trip,...More

    Arrived well before the large tour buses which meant there was no issue with them being sold out. Had a wonderful time and explored all the nooks and crannies of this marvelous castle.
