WHAT WE’LL DO…

The Forth Bridges
We drive through the town of South Queensferry and stop to take in the views across the River Forth and the three bridges, including the iconic cantilever railway bridge opened in 1890.

Linlithgow Palace
From here we drive the short distance to Linlithgow and Linlithgow Palace, home to the Scottish monarchy in the 15th and 16th century and birthplace of Mary Queen Of Scots. After exploring the ruins we drive towards Stirling

The Pineapple
We’ll call for a short stop at The Pineapple, a unique and quirky mid-Georgian building that formed the centrepiece of one of Scotland’s largest glasshouses.

Stirling Castle
As we arrive at Stirling we see Stirling Castle sitting on an imposing volcanic plug overlooking the Carse Of Stirling. Driving up the cobbled streets to the castle we will understand why the castle and the town held such importance in historic Scotland. The views from the castle ramparts across the Carse of Stirling towards the Wallace Monument are outstanding.

David Stirling Memorial
The Father of the Special Air Service that was formed as an elite tactical unit during World War II, on a good day the memorial affords stunning views over the Trossachs towards Loch Lomond.

Dukes Pass
We drive through the Dukes Pass, a twisting rural road that takes us through the heard of The Trossachs area towards Loch Lomond. If we’re lucky, a lone piper stands at the top of the pass and we stop for photos.

Loch Lomond
Take in the stunning views over the biggest freshwater loch (lake) in the UK, the centrepiece of Loch Lomond at The Trossachs National Park. We’ll call at the picturesque lochside town of Balmaha and take in the views, before having a late lunch at a quaint loch-side inn.

From Loch Lomond it is time to travel back to Edinburgh. Take in the beautiful scenery of highland fault line as we drive east, including The impressive Campsie and Ochil Hills.

You will be able to see the highlights of Edinburgh in a day and it’s excellent way of travelling especially now because of COVID-19. He was very knowledgable and had good sense of humour.
