If your time is limited then don’t worry you can still see a lot of beautiful sights and visit some amazing places on one of our private one day tours of Scotland. We can create an unforgettable experience for you which will allow you to get the most out of the time you have available. Below are some of our one day tours of Scotland which we can take you on for an authentic and memorable Scottish experience.
Visit stunning Stirling Castle and the Trossachs.
One of our most popular one day tours of Scotland. This tour takes in the town of Aberfoyle at the eastern edge of the Loch Lomond national park. From there we take the road over the Dukes Pass toward Loch Katrine. Renowned as one of Britain’s best drives this scenic route takes you through some of the most remarkable landscapes of the Trossachs. Named after the Duke of Montrose, this road was originally built as an access route to the Duke’s land. It was later improved to accommodate the tourists who were drawn to the area during Victorian times following the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem ‘The Lady of the Lake’.
Heading east from Loch Katrine we pass through Callander and then make our way to Stirling Castle. Stirling Castle is a great symbol of the Scottish wars of independence and a source of national pride. The Castle’s long, turbulent history is associated with great figures from Scotland’s past such as William Wallace and Mary Queen of Scots. The renaissance palace within the castle itself was built for King James V and his second queen, Mary of Guise. It is one of the most remarkable and complete Renaissance buildings in Britain. As well as a regimental museum and palace gardens there is a huge collection of renaissance artefacts, as well as palace rooms and halls which have played host to royalty and nobility down through the centuries.
Visit some of Scotland’s famous Scotch Malt Whisky Distilleries.
Departing from pickup point of your choice we head to the award winning Glenturret Distillery in Crieff, home of the Famous Grouse brand, Scotland’s favourite whisky. Enjoy a guided tour of the oldest working distillery in Scotland and see how The Glenturret Highland Single Malt is produced, still using the traditional methods and equipment. The tour includes a BAFTA award-winning interactive show as well as the chance to sample two whisky tastes – one of the Glenturret single malt and one other taste from The Famous Grouse range of The Black Grouse, The Snow Grouse or The Naked Grouse
From Glenturret we head along through St Fillans and Comrie and past the shores of Loch Earn. We recommend a lunch stop in at Loch Venachar before heading over the Dukes Pass to Aberfoyle. Renowned as one of Britain’s best drives this scenic route takes you through some of the most remarkable landscape of the Trossachs. Named after the Duke of Montrose, this road was originally built as an access route to the Duke’s land. It was later improved to accomodate the tourists who were drawn to the area during Victorian times following the publication of Sir Walter Scott’s epic poem ‘The Lady of the Lake’.
A short ride out of Aberfoyle and we arrive at the Glengoyne Distillery. Glengoyne is a beautiful distillery like no other, nestling into the bottom of Dumgoyne Hill, the famous volcanic plug that situated at the end of the Campsie Fells range of hills near Glasgow. Enjoy a dram of 12 Year Old and all the fun of the Glengoyne tour, followed by an in depth tutored tasting of three of our finest Highland Single Malts – 15 Year Old, 18 Year Old, and the distillery exclusive, Glengoyne Teapot Dram, recently named one of “World’s 100 Whiskies to Try Before You Die”
