Tour Route Details:
After setting off from Waterloo Place in one of Rabbies' luxury Mercedes mini-coaches you'll travel towards the mountainous fortifications of Stirling Castle. Along the way you and your fellow travellers (16 max) will get a friendly introduction to your guide and the exciting itinerary ahead.
After visiting Stirling Castle and the nearby Wallace Monument the coach turns towards its next highlight location, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park. Your guide will recant thrilling stories associated with area, and at your first stop in the Trossachs you'll get to have lunch in the scenic village of Aberfoyle. The Trossachs are sometimes called 'The Highlands in Miniature', as its rugged and lovingly preserved landscape straddles the Highland fault line that separates the cultural and geographical North from the lowlands.
After lunch in Aberfoyle you'll be taken to the 'bonnie banks' of Loch Lomond for a leisurely nature trail walk along the eastern shores. At one point you and group will stop by at a local inn for drinks and a reflection on the whole experience. From Loch Lomond you will return to Edinburgh in the late afternoon.
