Heart of Scotland tour
Spectacular views and whisky!

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs
Set off from Stirling and journey into the heart of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. You’ll stop at Loch Katrine for a cruise on the SS Sir Walter Scott steamship, before taking the winding Duke’s Pass into Aberfoyle for some lunch.
Next, you’ll head for Luss and continue to An Ceann Mòr, or the Pyramid Viewpoint. The Falls of Falloch follows, a 30-foot waterfall also known as ‘Rob Roy’s bath’.
Make your way through Crianlarich and Glen Dochart to see the Falls of Dochart, one of the most photographed waterfalls in Scotland. The tour wraps up at Doune.

Stirling Castle and Bannockburn
and local history
Travel through time with a flexible itinerary covering Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument, before immersing yourself in the bloody battle of Bannockburn.
From here, it’s just 10 minutes to the Wallace Monument, which towers over the famous site of the Battle of Stirling Bridge like a giant chess piece.
Finally, at Bannockburn, you can dive into the grisly world of medieval warfare with a digitally recreated battle and uncover the ancient war strategies of Robert the Bruce.
Loch Lomond National Park
Loch Lomond is the largest loch in Scotland and the most famous after Loch Ness.
At the southern end, you’ll find Loch Lomond Shores, which includes a visitor centre, an aquarium, shops and restaurants. Driving north, the scenery soon becomes more mountainous, eventually leading to the West Highland Way, ideal for walkers seeking a challenge.
To the north-east lie the Trossachs and Loch Katrine, where visitors can sail on the historic steamship SS Sir Walter Scott, while cruises on Loch Lomond can be taken from Tarbet, Argyll and Bute, and Balloch. There’s also an extensive water taxi service between most loch-side communities.
