To the north striking mountains guard the "Queen of all Britains lakes while, to the south, islands span the loch like giant stepping stones! You can get the best views of the "bonnie, bonnie banks by taking an optional one-hour cruise on the loch*. Alternatively you can enjoy a stroll around the picturesque village of Luss and savour the loch-side vistas.

The Trossachsis a wonderful area of lochs and mountains that is rightly known as the "Highlands in Miniature. We will make a stop for lunch in the pretty village of Aberfoyle before continuing our exploration of this picturesque area of Scotland.

Clan leader, cattle trader, cattle thief, blackmailer - Rob Roy MacGregor has provoked powerful emotions for more than three centuries. The beautiful Trossachs was his homeland and during your tour you'll learn of the daring exploits which made him a hero to his own people- and Scotland's most notorious outlaw.

A real highlight is our visit to the medieval city of Stirling. Here there is an opportunity to visit Stirling Castle*. The castle overlooks the ancient city of Stirling and is one of the historic buildings that have come to symbolise the spirit of Scotland. Our extended stop in Stirling will allow a leisurely visit to the Castle or a chance to explore the city itself.

After our time in Stirling we join the motorway for the short journey back to Glasgow.
