Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your trip begins early in central Edinburgh, where you embark en coach for scenic drive to the ancient capital of Stirling. Enjoy spectacular morning views as the sun lights up Stirling Castle, former residence of Scottish royals including Mary, Queen of Scots. Snap some photos and learn about the site’s colorful history riddled with battles such as the Battle of Stirling Bridge, led by William Wallace. Then stop at the William Wallace monument to learn more about the rebel warrior.  

As your coach travels through the Highlands, admire the natural and cultural sights, from ‘wee hairy coos’ (cattle) roaming free, to geological wonders like Loch Earn and Loch Lomond. Your expert guide narrates the journey through Trossachs National Park, giving historical context to the present-day surroundings.

Stop next at the famous Glenturret whisky distillery. Enjoy lunch, take an optional distillery tour and sample a dram of whisky straight from the cask (own expense)! As you view the space, learn about the traditional methods used to produce Glenturret Highland single malt. If you choose not to tour, this is a great time to relax and independently explore. 

Your trip continues to the Hermitage, a whimsical natural wonderland where you’ll stroll through fir-lined paths along the Braan River to Ossian’s Hall and the majestic Black Linn Falls. After your nature walk, head to the charming village of Dunkeld to visit the stunning Dunkeld Cathedral along the Tay River and learn about the town famously mentioned in Macbeth. Then relax for the return ride to Edinburgh, where your full-day trip ends back at the starting point by early evening.

The tour of the distillery was excellent! As well as being educational the staff was friendly and fun. The rest of the trip was somewhat disappointing. A lot of driving and it should be one river/waterfall not plural. That gives the idea that you will see multiple locations. The tour guide was informative but played too much music.

Waterfall. Not waterfalls. There was only one. Spent around 30 mins there, not more. Had more free time in the various gifts shops than at the waterfall. Free whiskey was appreciated and so as the stop to pet and feed the hairy cows.

This was a great trip. The guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. The tour of the distillery is very educational. The best presentation of how they make whiskey that I had in Scotland. At each stop we were given a good mix of information and time on our own to walk around and look at things. Good trip for kids too.
