    5.0 - Excellent

    We traveled to The Isle of Skye and many other Scotland wonders including the wonderful Kelpies. Kirsty is a terrific young lady with vast knowledge of Scotland and its history. Everyday she had a wonderful faerie take for us as well as fabulous music to fill the longer drives. Besides being an excellent and wonderful guide she is also a very good driver. Above all she is a magnificent person who we consider to be a lifelong friend. We can not recommend anyone more highly.

    Can you tell me more about the itinerary of this trip?

    This tour will depart Edinburgh and head west through Scotland's central belt to take in views of the stunning Kelpies, the world's largest equine sculptures. Then it's north to the ‘Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond’ where you will take time at Balmaha to admire views of Ben Lomond. Next explore Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park stopping at the quaint Highland village of Aberfoyle, a beautiful location at the southern edge of the West Highland Fault Line which was often frequented by Sir Walter Scott.

    The afternoon is spent exploring Stirling. Take the chance to discover impressive Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s most important structures both historically and architecturally. Many have been crowned at Stirling Castle, including Mary Queen of Scots, and it was central to William Wallace’s fight in the Wars of Independence. Alternatively explore Stirling, geographically one of the most significant towns in Scottish history. We return to Edinburgh early evening.

What are people saying about TourRadar?

  • Lynette12th April 2018
    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
