These are spectacular structures to go and visit. Take a walk around by the canal and see how impressive these sculptures are up close. There is free parking close by with short walk. Disabled parking is also available and closer to the shop and structures. The gift shop has reasonably priced souvenirs.

We went on a tour that included Doune Castle, Deanston Distillery, Stirling Castle. It was supposed to go to another distillery, but we opted for Midhope Castle (Lallybroch) instead. David was very accomodating--nice guy. We got driven around to the sites, and were given minimal historical info. As stated, admissions were extra. For two people, plan to spend about 100 pounds on admissions and tour booklets. The time on the tour was very rushed. An hour worked at Deanston, but since he picked us up late we only got half an hour at Doune. Not enough. An hour and a half at Stirling was about half what I wanted. And no time was alloted for lunch--it was included in our time at Stirling. Similar tours state up front they are ten hours long. David should allow more time at the sites and time for lunch.

For the price, this is not what was expected. We had a personal driver who took us to each spot, dropped us off and gave us an hour to site-see. Information that was given was read from a phone that I could have learned from Wikipedia. When visiting the Falkirk Wheel, the driver should have been aware the experience is limited and therefore should have included tickets to the experience or planned our journey accordingly. Because we were only given an hour, that did not allow us to fully experience the Falkirk Wheel. Overall, very disappointed and very surprising TripAdvisor had a trip organized as such

Private Tours Edinburgh runs a wide range of private tours all over Scotland . We are proud of the high standard of service we have supplied to our customers over the last three years . I am sorry if you were disappointed with your experience . This tour was delivered by a local guide as described on Tripadvisor . The customers said they saw the Wheel turn twice so I am not sure why they think the experience was limited . Most customers find an hour is more than enough time to explore each location. The customers made a comment about seeing real horses at the Kelpies, although I am not clear why they thought that .

We booked this tour thinking it would give us a private tour of the castle, photography tips and would include entrance tickets to Dourne. While David was very nice, he dropped us at the parking lot of the castle and said see you in 90 minutes. We used the audio guide instead. I think the description given of what we would receive was misleading and really what we paid for was a driver to and from the castle. Had I known that I would have looked for another option that was less expensive.
