Highlights

Leave Scotland’s urban central belt behind and enter the gateway to the Highlands.
Visit sites of great battles, enchanting castles, and important historical monuments. Enjoy one of our most popular tours and take in the stunning countryside within short reach of the capital.



‘The ship that never sailed’
Departing from Edinburgh head to Blackness Castle on the Firth of Forth. This formidable fortress will be familiar to fans of Outlander as it stood in for ‘Fort William.’ Climb the towers for panoramic views out to sea.


Linlithgow Palace.
Follow in the footsteps of royalty who broke up their journey between Edinburgh Castle and Stirling Castle. 

Step inside the ruins of this Renaissance residence of the Stewart kings and the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots.


The Kelpies
Driving along towards Stirling we pass by two 30 metre tall horse head sculptures. Be amazed by this man-made feat of engineering and the largest equine statue in the world.

Storm the gates at Doune Castle

Climb the battlements and admire the views of the River Teith and surrounding hills. Walk in the footsteps of rulers both real and fictional. 

This medieval courtyard castle has featured on screen in Monty Python, Game of Thrones, and Outlander. Take time out at midday to rest and stop for lunch at Bridge of Allan, a former spa town at the foot of the Ochil Hills.

Pay homage to a great Scottish hero.
The Wallace monument overlooks the site of the battlefield where William Wallace had his great victory at Stirling bridge. 

Climb to the top of the spiral staircase to reach ‘the crown’ and admire the jaw-dropping views of the surrounding hills and countryside.

Bannockburn exhibition
3D technology brings this thrilling chapter of Scotland’s story to life. 

Continue on to see the statue of Robert the Bruce and find out more about another Scottish hero.

If there’s time left
Pop into the Deanston distillery on the way back home. The former cotton mill stands by the River Teith. Sample some of the hand-crafted single malt.

Then it’s time to return home.
Our Stirling tour shows you don’t have to travel far to experience the wonders of Scotland. 

Relax as your kilted guide brings you safely back to your doorstep. Tuck into the snacks provided, share highlights with your fellow travellers, or just reflect on a day well spent.
