Oh ye'll tak' the high road an I'll tak' the low road

And I'll get to Scotland afore ye;

But me and my true love will never meet again

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond

The famous Scottish song, "The Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond" speaks about two Scottish soldiers stuck in a foreign prison. One of the soldiers has been released, but the one singing the song has been sentenced to death. The lines, "You take the high road and I'll take the low road" refer to a popular celtic belief, where the low road is the path to the underworld. Once the soldier has died, a fairy will safely guide his spirit back to his homeland, Scotland.

Loch Lomond, The Trossachs & Stirling Castle

Our one day tour from Edinburgh takes you sightseeing to Loch Lomond, the Trossachs National Park and Stirling Castle, and introduces you to the land and legends of Scottish heroes William Wallace and Rob Roy. Begin with a memorable visit to Stirling Castle, explore the pretty villages of Callander & Luss, and finish off with a spectacular cruise across Loch Lomond.

Departing Edinburgh, we travel north-west for our first stop of the day at magnificent Stirling Castle, one of Scotland's most historically significant castles, sitting high on volcanic rock and offering wonderful views of the surrounding landscape. You will have time to visit the castle and learn of the exploits of key historical figures including William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and Mary Queen of Scots. With lots of interesting things to see and do here, the Stirling Castle experience is a must for any visitor to Scotland.
