Our one day Loch Lomond tour from Glasgow, 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. Enjoy a cruise across Loch Lomond and end the day with a memorable visit to Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s most historically important castles.

See the Highlands in Miniature

Once our Loch Lomond tour departs from Glasgow we travel via the picturesque Campsie Fells, before making our first stop at 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 the surrounding mountains. Alternatively, take a stroll through the picturesque loch-side conservation village of Luss, with its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across the loch's western shoreline.

We then travel on for some lunch in the small village of Aberfoyle, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Trossachs National Park, just below the Highland faultline. After lunch our Loch Lomond tour from Glasgow shall continue the journey of exploration through the Trossachs - Scotland’s first national park, known as ‘the Highlands in miniature’ for its abundance of lochs, mountains and forests and the homeland of legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor.

We depart for Stirling early afternoon and our last stop is the magnificent Stirling Castle, sitting high on volcanic rock, offering wonderful views of the landscape. You will have time to visit the castle and learn of the exploits of key historic 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 well worth a visit. We then make our way back to Glasgow where your Loch Lomond tour will finish.
