Stirling Castle and Whisky Small Group Day Tour from Edinburgh
From US$59,63
Overview

This day trip from Edinburgh saves you time and money by packing in several great activities, including a nature hike near Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, a visit to Stirling Castle (admission ticket included), and a tour of Glengoyne Distillery with a taste of 12-year-old whisky. Since your rides are taken care of both ways, you won't need to worry about navigation or driving. 

What to Expect
Start with pickup in Edinburgh by an air-conditioned Mercedes mini-coach. Once you meet your guide, sit back and relax as your coach makes it way through the city to the countryside.

Along the drive, pass by Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Your guide might also make a special bonus stop at Doune Castle, which has been used a a filming location for Outlander and Game of Thrones.

Upon arrival at Stirling Castle, you’ll explore the grounds with a guide. Take in the views and the history before reboarding for the ride to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Follow your guide on a short nature hike around the lake. 

Next, you'll make your way to Glengoyne distillery, where you'll get a tour and a taste of its famous 12-year-old Scotch malt whisky.

Your adventure ends with a relaxing drive back to Edinburgh.

Nice Day Trip

This was a nice excursion. The driver was knowledgeable, the places we stopped were pleasant to visit and the lunch recommendation was perfect. The small group experience really enhanced the tour. I enjoyed it so much I booked another small group tour with this operator.

Should be fine to buy it there. I believe we got a discount as part of the tour group too, so may even be better to wait.
