This day trip from Edinburgh saves you time and money by packing in several great activities, including a nature hike near Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, a visit to Stirling Castle (admission ticket included), and a tour of Glengoyne Distillery with a taste of 12-year-old whisky. Since your rides are taken care of both ways, you won't need to worry about navigation or driving.
Along the drive, pass by Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Your guide might also make a special bonus stop at Doune Castle, which has been used a a filming location for Outlander and Game of Thrones.
Upon arrival at Stirling Castle, you’ll explore the grounds with a guide. Take in the views and the history before reboarding for the ride to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Follow your guide on a short nature hike around the lake.
Next, you'll make your way to Glengoyne distillery, where you'll get a tour and a taste of its famous 12-year-old Scotch malt whisky.
Your adventure ends with a relaxing drive back to Edinburgh.
