    The tour was actually the Castle and broomstick one dayer but App wouldn’t allow me to select it. We had another wonderful day. Are all your guides as passionate and knowledgeable as the three we had? Can’t wait to get back and travel with you guys again. Thank you.

    Caitlin was fantastic. She told a number of interesting stories on the tour, and gave us just the right amount of time in each location. I kept asking about Highland Cattle, so she made a special stop so we could meet some! It was the highlight of my day. The only (very minor) suggestion I would make is that the music on the bus was sometimes a little loud, as we would have liked to have slept a bit on the way back.

    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.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • 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.
