After pickup from central Edinburgh, set out on the around 1-hour drive to Stirling, traveling by air-conditioned minivan. On arrival, explore the historic town, where highlights include the Wallace Monument—dedicated to the real-life ‘Braveheart’, William Wallace—and the royal fortress of Stirling Castle, which you will have time to visit if you wish (entrance fees not included).

Continue along the dramatic Duke’s Pass into the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, and stop to take photos of Loch Lomond, Scotland’s largest lake. After admiring the stunning scenery of the national park, make a final stop at the Glengoyne whisky distillery where you can tour the distillery and sample a dram of whisky (own expense).

Your tour ends back in central Edinburgh.

We drove past them, rather than stopping to look at them, or visit properly. If the kelpies are on your to do list, I would say plan a separate visit.
