Loch Lomond, Kelpies & Stirling Castle Small-Group Day Tour from Edinburgh

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Edinburgh and travel in a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach to The Kelpies, passing Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots, on the way.

    Stop at The Kelpies monument for an up-close look at the 30-meter high horse heads. The sculptures stand as a testament to the horsepower that drove the industrial development of central Scotland.

    Afterward, take a back road to Loch Lomond, traveling through the protected lands of Scotland’s first national park: Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park. Follow a scenic route along the 22-mile-long (35-km) loch’s eastern shore, which is dominated by the oft-climbed Ben Lomond.

    Then travel to where the Lowlands meet the Highlands, into the Trossachs or ‘The Highlands in Miniature’. Take in a stunning landscape of steep mountains, shimmering lochs, and thick forests on a nature walk with your guide.

    Break for lunch (own expense) in the village of Aberfoyle, located within the National Park, before continuing to the city of Stirling, where you can visit one of Scotland’s most magnificent castles. Opt to take an interior tour independently (own expense) to learn about the castle's history.

    Your small-group day trip concludes with the return drive to Edinburgh.

    Our tour with Pete from Rabbie's was excellent! We had a wonderful drive on the small group Rabbie's bus. Lots of great music, great stories, history and fun! Loch Lomond was beautiful, the Kelpies were awe inspiring, and Stirling Castle was amazing!

    It depends what you mean by "older"! You'd need to be reasonably mobile (able to get on and off the minibus frequently & do the 40 minute walk at Loch Lomond) but otherwise yes.
