Very good tour and much less expensive than cruise tours

Easy to find tour guide, a short walk from the ship. Need to pay separately to see inside Stirling Castle, which was most outstanding on the outside and in the gardens. Loch Lomond was disappointingly touristy and covered in litter. Lovely lake, but not really...More

Not a good day

We took this tour as a shore excursion. That means that time is limited - you must get back in time. The drive from the port to Sterling Castle was longer than I expected. In fact all the drives were long. The problem came when...More
