The Highlands in Miniature

Departing Edinburgh, we travel westwards for our first stop of the day at the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond; one of the prettiest and largest lochs in the whole of Scotland. Here you can enjoy an hour long cruise* taking in spectacular views of the loch's many islands and surrounding mountains. Alternatively, take a stroll through the picturesque loch side village of Luss; with its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across Loch Lomond's western shoreline.

We continue through the Trossachs National Park, also known as 'the Highlands in Miniature' for it's abundance of lochs, mountains and forests. It's also famous for the legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor. We will spend time exploring the area before stopping for lunch in a small village immersed in its beautiful surroundings.

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.
