Get a flavour of the Highlands of Scotland within a day’s drive. Join your private guide for a very special day out.
The Trossachs are often described as the Highlands in miniature. They are famed for their lovely lochs (lakes), sweeping valleys and majestic hillsides. Keep your eyes open too for Scotland’s characteristic wildlife, including shaggy Highland cattle, eagles, ospreys, red squirrels and stags. You may even be the lucky person who finally gets a verifiable picture of the world-famous Loch Ness Monster!
Our first stop is Stirling, with its imposing castle. Nearby, are the National Wallace Monument and the Battle Bannockburn Visitor Centre which tell the stirring stories of 14th century patriots William ‘Braveheart’ Wallace and Robert The Bruce.
Driving northwards, you enter dramatic scenery and typical highland villages such as Callander which is great place to eat and offers some spectacular walks and cycle pathways along the river.
Continuing on the Duke’s Pass the journey delights with highland cottages, lochs and fantastic scenery, before sweeping down into a town made famous by the writer Sir Walter Scott in ‘Lady of the Lake.’
Stop off and enjoy a detour to the stunning Loch Katrine, where you can enjoy a cruise on board the Sir Walter Scott, or walk or cycle on foot around what is now a source of water for the great city of Glasgow.
