Full description
Discover Scotland's glorious past on this exciting tour in the hearthland of Highland heroes such as Rob Roy, Robert the Bruce and William Wallace. Marvel at the natural beauty of the forests, lochs and mountains in Loch Lomond National Park. You will depart Glasgow at 9 AM and travel towards Stirling, along a route that has been used for thousands of years by invading armies. It was the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire, and was later used by the English King Edward I as he marched towards Stirling. As you approach Stirling the magnificent castle dominates your view and you make your way up towards the high volcanic rock where it imposes itself upon the surrounding land. To the north is the towering National Wallace Monument commemorating Scotland’s great hero William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the Oscar-winning movie Braveheart. To the South is Bannockburn castle where, in 1314, the great Scottish warrior-king Robert the Bruce defeated the English army of Edward II. From Stirling you will travel into the Highlands to an area known as the Trossachs National Park. Often referred to as "The Highlands in Miniature" it marks the point where the Lowlands meet the Highlands. You will stop here for lunch in the heart of the National Park forest outside Aberfoyle, where you can enjoy the magnificent nature all around you. After lunch you "take the high road" or back-road to Loch Lomond. With 79 islands, it is Scotland’s largest loch,andt takes its name from the mountain Ben Lomond on the eastern shore. Following a walk out along the west highland way you travel onto the picturesque Distillery of Glengoyne, one of the bestselling malt whiskies in Scotland, where you have the option to tour the Distillery or enjoy the refreshments that are on offer at their "Slainte Mhath Shop." From there, it’s just a short drive back to Glasgow at around 6 PM.

Our driver John, was a funny guy who put us all at ease and kept us informed throughout with a story the odd joke and great music to add the the overall enjoyment. The castle was very impressive and Loch Lomond as pretty as the song depicts. The whiskey tour at the end of day put a smile on our faces and warmed us up for the bus ride home. Would recommend Rabbies tours to everyone.

vey nice trip out, top driver/ guide Stevie, he gave us all the information we needed and more.The weather was bright and sunny which was not down to you but made the day. One small thing the entrance tickets for Stirling Castle and the distillery was a big extra, it would be a little difference if it could be added in or at least let the people who would are about to book this tour the full cost. But still a great day outing great driver/guide

Our tour guide Ben was funny and knowledgeable. The Stirling Castle was very interesting to tour and the free tour guide person was a character. He made it fun to hear about the castle. Lunch In the town of Calandar did the job to get a bite to eat. Loch Lomond would have been great to see if it wasn’t pouring down rain.☹️ The little town of Balmaha was cute the pub oak tree was a great place to get a pint. The Glengoyne whisky tour was educational. Now I know how to make whisky....LOL
