Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & Stirling Castle Shore Excursion

Sit back, relax and admire the beauty and tranquillity of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park. Stunningly beautiful with picture postcard views at every corner, it’s forest covered mountains and shimmering highland lochs will take your breath away. You will also have time to wander around the picturesque highland village of Luss.

Stirling Castle is historically and without doubt one of the most important castles in Scotland. Home of the Stuart Kings and Mary Queen of Scots, you too can explore this grand castle where Knights, nobles and foreign ambassadors once flocked to the Royal Court at Stirling Castle to revel in the castle’s grandeur.

Departing from Greenock Ocean Terminal, we make our way to the picturesque highland village of Luss for our first stop of the day.

Highland Village of Luss
Chapel

There has been a settlement here for over a thousand years at least and it is known that the Vikings passed through Luss in 1263 plundering the nearby communities. You can stroll along the bonny banks of Loch Lomond or just wander around the village. Mackessogs Church is a fascinating place to visit with items of historical interest both inside and outside the church. Of particular interest is the “hog back” Viking grave dating from around the 11th century.

Dukes Pass
Loch Drunkie

From Luss our journey takes us through the dramatic Dukes Pass into the Trossachs, described as the Highlands in miniature due to its outstanding beauty. The name “Trossachs” comes from the Gaelic meaning “A Bristly Place”.

The Trossachs was home to one of Scotland’s most notorious outlaws Rob Roy MacGregor and was the inspiration behind Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem “Lady of the Lake” after he spent time in this wild but romantic landscape.

We will make a stop for lunch in the bustling tourist town of Callander. Crammed with teashops Callander is often described as gateway to the Highlands.

Stirling castle

Stirling Castle, home to the Stuart Kings is one of Scotland’s most important castles and is associated with many great and historical figures such as Mary Queen of Scots, William Wallace (Braveheart), Robert the Bruce and Bonnie Prince Charlie.

You will have enough time for a leisurely visit to the castle where you can learn about the key moments of Scotland’s long, violent and bloody history and the battles of Scotland’s past, including Stirling Bridge where William Wallace (Braveheart) defeated a much larger English army in 1297 and Bannockburn where Robert the Bruce did the same in 1314.

Leaving Stirling Castle and time permitting we will make a quick stop in Glasgow’s George Sq just to soak up the atmosphere of this vibrant and wonderful city before dropping you off at Port where your excursion ends.
