Trossachs and Stirling Castle are well worth this day long tour
Sep 2019
Our tour guide Robert (Rob) had a lot of great stories to tell; very knowledgeable about the history of the places we visited. He made sure there were regular stops on the way and there is plenty of time to take a boat tour on Loch Lomond. The Trossach National Park is a sight to behold and I very much enjoyed being able to visit Stirling Castle and learn about it’s extensive history.

An interesting day
Aug 2019
This was the last tour of my visit, and it was a good note to end on. A bit more laid back to the other trips i'd done, with maybe less stops but more time to enjoy them, such as the ride along Loch Lomond. It was an overcast day and though it was chilly, the view was still breathtaking. Our driver guide Graham is a great storyteller making the moments in the bus just as interesting as the rest of the tour. All in all, a superb day.

A successful shore excursion for our family
Jul 2019 • Family
We took this tour on July 3. Our driver, Eric(I believe that's his name), was very knowledgeable of the history aspect of our tour attractions. He was also very organize on his presentation of the tour; he came prepare for our trip! We visited Stirling Castle, a memorable place to see, and talked to local volunteers of any historical events. I even spent 23 GBP for the family clan information for my father-in-law which he loved so much. Eric also helped my husband on the preliminary family-clan search. These information became very dear to my father-in-law. Our visit to the Stirling Castle was of intellectual, soul-searching, and fun-experiencing event.

Eric drove us through the beautiful country scenery all the way to Loch Lomond. We visited the most beautiful "Highland Cows!" They were so beautiful you have to see them yourself in your lifetime!

I want to thank Eric for a wonderful shore excursion. I really appreciate your presentation of the trip.

excellent legit tour company, well organized
Jun 2019 • Family
this was the second of 2 tours we booked during our visit. Robert was the tour guide and very personable and knowledgable. he kept us on schedule and made plenty of stops along the way to stretch our feet, use restrooms, get a quick bite, and take pictures. Stirling castle was amazing and he allowed us about 1 hour 40 minutes to explore. We purchased tickets from Robert to enter the castle.
we drove roughly 45 minutes to 1.5 hours between stops. my 8 year old son was on the tour and he did fine with an ipad to keep busy between stops.
As an aside, at the end of the tour, i realized most definitely that i dropped my phone in the van as i was gathering my belongings. i quickly called timberbush within 5 minutes, they coordinated with Robert, and another driver named Andy, to deliver my phone to the original pick up location the following morning. without my phone, my vacation would have been partially ruined as i saved several vacation related documents and logistics on my phone.
i would certainly use timberbush again for future visits/trips.

Laura was amazing!!!
Laura our tour guide( who I believe typically does the tours out of Edinburgh and whose father also works with timberbush) was unbelievable! She is an amazing story teller who has you listening to every word. We covered a ton of ground all the way to Inverness and on the way back we stopped at Pitlochry, an adorable little town. The bartender introduced us to Edradour the best single malt whiskey ever! The best tour ever seriously! Perfect amount of bathroom stops( I’ve been on some tours that get this really wrong and it’s miserable!) paired with an impressive amount of ground covered that never felt rushed.

Excellent day tour
Oct 2018 • Solo
I really enjoyed this day tour with Timberbush. Jenny is an excellent tour guide who gives memorable and interesting information without overload. She speaks clearly and plays the right amount of scottish music. Not too little or too much. The tour has a good number of stops for toilet/photos, etc. I absolutely loved the 1 hr cruise on Lake Lomond. The scenery in the Trossachs was beautiful with the autumn colors! The whole tour is a wonderful day out and I highly recommend it.

"Sweet As"
Oct 2018 • Solo
The tour was sweet and enjoyable. James is a jolly fellow with a good sense of humour who wore tartan pants that matched my tartan skirt. There is also a pleasant cruise trip with a fee of around 10qid if you choose to take part in also there is a fee under 15qid when entering Stirling castle, but with a discount being part of Timberbush Tours. I thoroughly had a good overall experience, many thanks to the lovely James :)

Very good tour and much less expensive than cruise tours
Aug 2018 • Family
Easy to find tour guide, a short walk from the ship. Need to pay separately to see inside Stirling Castle, which was most outstanding on the outside and in the gardens. Loch Lomond was disappointingly touristy and covered in litter. Lovely lake, but not really worth the time on the tour. Aberfoyle town, in the Trossachs, was quaint and we were able to find everything we needed to eat, which is challenging due to our food restrictions. The best part of the tour was the guide, David, who took care to check in with people, let us know where the facilities were, give us hints about efficient ways to see the sights, and history about the locations, all in a lovely, quiet voice. A genuinely nice man.

Great shore excursion from Glasglow
We decided to take this shore excursion from Glasgow and found it to be a less expensive option than booking via the cruise ship. We were picked up outside of the cruise terminal and immediately started our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a good background of all the places we visited. We were given enough time to look around the places we visited and then taken back to the ship with lots of time to spare. We definitely recommend this tour to people coming to Glasgow via cruise ships.
