πŸ“‹ Itinerary

After collection from hotel we head north up M9 stopping at the magnificent Kelpies for a brief photo opp.

We then head further north and stop at Stirling. PossiblyΒ Scotland’s most historical region. A brief tour of the city then up to the castle for a visit and guided tour.

We then head north again and stop at Doune castle. A very popular location for filming and is a must for Outlander, Game of Thrones and Monty Python fans.

Next to Doune is Deanston Distillery. This can be incorporated into the tour if need be and timings can be altered elsewhere.

We then head north again and stop at the lovely town of Callendar for lunch. This is a very picturesque town and is very popular for walkers and folk out for a nice drive.

After here we head towards the stunning village of Killin. Famous for the Falls of Dochart which is a magnificent waterfall running into Loch Tay. We stop here for a short walk and a photo opportunity is an absolute must.

Heading on from here we drive to the other end of the village to Finlarig Castle. This is a very eerie ruinous castle, once home to the evil Black Campbell of Glenlyon. A ruthless, blood thirsty clan chief from the Middle Ages. Here you will see his stunning castle, complete with a beheading pit.

From the castle we will take the stunning drive towards Pitlochry via Loch Tay. Here we will stop for a walk about and a chance to soak up the ambience of a delightful highland town. If there is time we might be able to visit either the Queens view a stunning vista over Loch Tummel.

Or you may choose to visit the Hermitage. This is a remarkable woodland with lovely walks and a little house at the top which is home to a stunning view of a waterfall.

After here we will head back down the A9 back to Edinburgh and you will be dropped off at a place of your choice.
