From big cities to small towns and a wonderful experience in the Highlands, there's so much to see! This tour is a lovely way to experience Scotland!
  • Hassle-free transportation between several must-see Scottish sites
  • Learn about Scotland's biggest city on a walking tour
  • Visit several villages as well as such natural wonders as Loch Lomond
  • Get a deeper understanding of the region's culture and history
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Edinburgh hotel. Head to Glasgow, where you’ll learn how this one-time industrial heartland transformed itself into a cultural hub. Then visit Loch Lomond, whose shoreline is immortalized in song as "bonnie, bonnie banks." At the village of Balloch, opt for a scenic cruise on the lake (own expense).
Next, visit the charming village of Aberfoyle. With its lakes, valleys, and mountains, this area is often described as “Highlands in miniature." Enjoy lunch (own expense), browse the shops, and wander through its streets.
Your final stop is the 14th-century Doune Castle, a filming location for movies including “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” and shows such as "Game of Thrones" and "Outlander." Take an audio tour (own expense) of the castle narrated by Monty Python's Terry Jones.
Your tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

Put on some warm clothes if you want to sail Loch Lomond, if it is a misty day you won't probably see a lot from the lake. I'm sure Scotland is beautiful in Winter, it might rain yes, but it rains during the Summer too so... More
