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.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle today is Doune as it was when rebuilt by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany, in the late 14th century and although it’s been a ruin since the 18th century, the castle remains largely intact. As a result a trip to Doune Castle shows you what a medieval castle was really like.

Doune has been used several times as a film set. It has featured twice in films based on Scott’s ‘Ivanhoe’ and more recently has been used as as Winterfell in ‘Game of Thrones’ Castle and in Outlander as the location of Castle Leoch. By far its most famous screen appearance was in ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ (1974) in which it featured, almost by accident, as Camelot.

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 we take a quick detour to Luss on the western bank and take in the panoramic views over the Loch to Ben Lomond on the opposite bank. Standing on the pier gives you a 360 degree panoramic view of the area.

Dumbarton Castle & Rock

The site of Dumbarton Castle has been significant in Scottish history for over 1000 years. Castle Rock, a volcanic plug that of a type that can be found across both coasts of Central Scotland It has been a border stronghold, a Royal Castle and lately a garrison fortress that was still active as recently as World War 2. Mary, Queen of Scots left Scotland for France in 1548 from Dumbarton Castle.
