We leave Edinburgh behind and make our way past Linlithgow, with its Palace ruins overlooking a lovely loch. King James V and his daughter, the ill-fated Mary Queen of Scots, were both born here.
 
Look out for The Kelpies, two 30 metre high horse head statues that were built to celebrate the role that horse power played in the daily life of the nearby Forth and Clyde Canal.
 
Loch Lomond is the largest expanse of fresh water in mainland Britain. Its known as the Queen of Scotlands lakes for very good reason as you will discover! Well make a stop at Balloch where a cruiser* awaits to show you the very best views of the "bonnie, bonnie banks. If sailing is not your thing the coach will continue to the Viking village of Luss where there is free time to explore this picturesque community and enjoy the views over the loch to Ben Lomond.
 
Well make a stop for lunch in Aberfoyle and afterwards enjoy a wonderful scenic drive through the heart of The Trossachs. This will give you a real taste of the Highlands! 
 
The Trossachs is a haven of lovely woodlands, quiet glens and sparkling lochs all sat amongst impressive mountains, famed in paintings and romantic literature. The area has been attracting visitors for generations  
 
We commence our drive through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park then start our ascent of the Dukes Pass. This is Rob Roy MacGregor country and the road we are travelling on was built by his arch-rival, the Duke of Montrose, to access his estate. Well stop to admire the view over Loch Achray then continue along the banks of Loch Venachar as we travel towards Callander. 
 
Stirlings charming old town with its cobbled streets and medieval buildings is sure to impress. Youll have a chance to visit imposing Stirling Castle*. It stands on a sheer crag looking down towards Stirling Bridge and Bannockburn, both decisive battles in Scotlands Wars of Independence. King James V turned the castle into one of Scotlands most sumptuous palaces. The magnificently restored Royal Palace was the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots who was crowned here aged just 9 months. It will take little imagination to visualise the scene when you visit the impressive Chapel Royal.
