Stirling Castle,Trossachs National and Loch Lomond Day Tour from Edinburgh
USD 54.53
Overview
Explore Stirling Castle, the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond on this adventurous day tour from Edinburgh. Take a glimpse into Glasgow’s industrial past on route to beautiful Loch Lomond, and admire fine views over rugged Ben Lomond. Travel into the Trossachs National Park with a guide and visit the pretty Highland village of Aberfoyle, where life ticks by at a wonderfully relaxing pace. Explore the ancient streets of Stirling and discover top attractions such as the mighty Stirling Castle — widely considered among Scotland’s most important fortresses.
What to Expect

Departing Edinburgh, head west through Scotland’s central belt toward the ‘Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond’ – stopping at Balmaha to soak up the breathtaking, solitary peak of Scotland’s most southerly Munro, Ben Lomond. Stretch your legs on woodland walks, with views of the biggest loch on the British Isles. You can also spot some of the 22 islands within the loch – which are home to an array of creatures including a colony of wallabies!

The afternoon takes you to one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland, both architecturally and historically. Stirling Castle sits atop Castle Hill and has seen several Scottish Kings and Queens crowned here, including Mary Queen of Scots in 1542. It was also central to William Wallace and Robert the Bruce’s Wars of Independence. Stirling town itself is geographically one of the most significant towns in Scottish history.

On the way home, you’ll have the chance to see the world’s largest equine sculptures, the Kelpies. Each 30-metre high horse head sculpture is made from 300 tons of structural steel and designed by Scottish sculptor, Andy Scott.

Optional Activity - Stirling Castle
Stirling Castle is arguably the most impressive and historically important castle in Scotland. Seen from miles around, its imposing position has played a hugely strategic role throughout the centuries. Once home to the Scottish Royals, the building has been subject to many bloody sieges and much political intrigue. Make sure to purchase your ticket at check-in to avoid disappointment.
