On this tour we visit Stirling and head to the most famous battle in Scottish history Bannockburn. In 1314 Robert The Bruce defeated the might of the English army to regain Scotland’s independence. A monument stands where The Bruce had his command post and orchestrated what was to be, one of the greatest victory on Scottish soil.
Not too far away stands another monument to a Scottish hero – The Wallace Monument commemorating William Wallace (Braveheart!). Overlooking Stirling bridge, this monument marks the site of William Wallace’s famous victory over the might of the English army in 1297.
Stirling Castle is our next stop. This landmark towering over the city is very similar to Edinburgh Castle in appearance. Most of what you see today was built by the Stewart monarchy in the early 14-1500s.
Finally we head to the Highland boundary fault line in the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. We take the scenic route around Loch Venachar, Loch Achray and Loch Drunkie on the spectacular Dukes Pass. This tour gives you a little taste of the Highlands without the lengthy drive involved in a typical highland tour from Edinburgh.
