Combine the two on a small-group day trip from Glasgow, and discover the real taste of Scotland! You’ll see the area’s beautiful scenery, full of lochs and glens, and sample Scotland’s favorite beverage. With a maximum group size of 16 passengers, this special full-day tour allows you to have a memorable and personal experience.

Depart Glasgow at 9am and travel towards Stirling. Your route north is one that has been used for thousands of years by invading armies. As you approach Stirling the magnificent castle dominates your view and itself upon the surrounding land. Known as the ‘Key to Scotland’, for centuries this was the most important castle in Scotland.

To the north is the 220ft high tower of the National Wallace Monument commemorating Scotland’s great hero William Wallace, played by Mel Gibson in the Oscar-winning movie Braveheart. From the top you can look down over the scene of Wallace’s greatest triumph, the battle of Stirling Bridge, where he defeated the English army in 1297.

Then you'll travel onto Crieff, a lively resort town which was once the main centre for the cattle trade in Scotland. The town was burned down for harbouring Bonnie Prince Charlie during his 1745 Jacobite rebellion, and was rebuilt by the local landlord, the Duke of Perth.

You'll continue north over the Highland line, through the beautiful Sma' Glen and onto Aberfeldy. You will notice the immediate change in scenery from rolling farmland to mountain and moor as we cross over the fault line separating Lowland Scotland from the Highlands. Nearby is Dewar’s Whisky distillery, where you can enjoy a 'wee dram'. Known in the Gaelic as Uisge Beatha (or 'water of life') whisky has been produced for centuries in Scotland and the art is now close to perfection.

Later you travel west into the ancient lands of Breadalbane, or the ‘High Country’ surrounding Loch Tay and make your way along the loch towards Killin. The small town is situated beside the River Dochart and has the fantastic Falls of Dochart at its heart. After Killin you take a drive through the stunning Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park where you will stop at the gorgeous conservation village of Luss. From here you return to Glasgow at approx 7pm.
