Highland Glens, Castles and Whisky
Experience a real taste of the Highlands on this relaxing tour from Glasgow. Take time to visit a working whisky distillery, enjoy the scenic beauty of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, discover historic Stirling plus much, much more!
Departing from Glasgow we skirt the Campsie Fells and make our way to the picturesque village of Aberfoyle, gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, where we make a stop for refreshments. Soon we are travelling through the Trossachs which provides a wonderful vista of sparkling lochs and mountain glens. We make a stop to enjoy the views of Loch Achray before making our way through the Pass of Leny to reach Loch Earn and the Strathearn Valley.
The attractive spa town of Crieff sits in the foothills of the Grampian Mountains and is home to The Glenturret Malt Whisky Distillery (optional), the home of the Famous Grouse. After a tour of the distillery there's an opportunity for a tasting and visit to the shop, a must for any whisky connoisseur! There are a number of trails if you’d like to enjoy a walk in the extensive distillery grounds.
Our tour ends with a stop at imposing Stirling Castle (photo-opportunity), once the great Royal residence of the Kings and Queens of Scotland. The Castle has played an important role in Scottish history and is connected with many of Scotland’s most famous historical figures including Mary Queen of Scots, Robert the Bruce and William Wallace, the real "Braveheart”!
After our relaxing visit to Stirling we join the motorway for the short drive back to Glasgow.
