Full description
Departing Edinburgh, your adventure takes you past the stunning Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Scottish royalty, before you make your first stop at the majestic Kelpies. These towering statues, situated at the heart of Helix Park, are the largest statues of horses anywhere in the world, and are a symbol of Scottish legend and mythology recognized the world over.

You will venture next to Stirling, the magnificent castle in the heart of Scotland, where you will see and hear tales of Scotland's greatest heroes, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. These legends both fought epic battles for independence beneath the very walls of this spectacular Medieval structure. You will see the Wallace Monument, walk over Stirling Bridge itself, explore the castle, and bask in the history and legend of this incredible ancient land which unfolds before you from the towering battlements.

You will then journey on through the stunning Trossachs National Park, known as "The Highlands in miniature" for its incredible scenery, towards "The Queen of the Lochs" at Loch Lomond. This is a scene which has inspired songs, stories, myths, and legends. Here, you will be free to enjoy a picnic lunch beside the shimmering Loch, or enjoy an unforgettable Loch Lomond boat cruise.
