About the tour
Our first stop is the charming village of Luss in the Loch Lomond National Park. Here you will have a chance to see Loch Lomond: the largest in land stretch of water in Great Britain. At 10.00am, we will go on a cruise (included in tickets)! We will sail from Luss Pier through Loch Lomond’s island jewels and visit the beautiful Inchcailloch –‘Isle of the Cowled Woman’. On this cruise, you can explore the special habitats of this National Nature Reserve. The island supports wildlife including otter and fallow deer, as well as native and migrant birds including woodpecker, siskin, gold crest, crossbill, osprey and even capercaillie, to name but a few.

After 2.00pm, we will drop by Stirling, a city of splendour and nationhood. Thanks to its remarkable castle several wars of Independence were won and monarchs reigned there for 300 years. You may visit the castle (not included in tickets) and take a walk in peaceful Queen Anne Gardens or explore this vibrant city. Have a look at the William (Braveheart) Wallace Monument. Enjoy your day in one of Scottish independence landmarks.

Remember to bring some snacks/light meals along!
