1 Day Glasgow and Loch Lomond Tour

Adults from £45 (age 16+) Children From £43 (age 6+)
Tour Highlights

This tour is for those who enjoy seeing the major cities of the countries they visit, and soak in the nature as well. On this day tour departing from Edinburgh you will experience the modern and dynamic city of Glasgow, the largest city of Scotland, with a scenic panoramic tour and some free time to explore Cathedral and City Centre.

The second half of the tour has a little bit of nature tossed in. This is when you journey through to the Trossachs National Park to enjoy a relaxing cruise on Loch Lomond.

Before heading back to Edinburgh, you’ll stop briefly to admire views of Stirling Castle, and the Kelpies at the Helix Park.

Starting from 13th October the tour route will no longer include the Kelpies. Last stop will be Stirling Old Town instead. Kelpies will only be visible passing by on the return journey to Edinburgh.

These are some of the highlights you will see:

Glasgow

Departing Edinburgh, we travel west to the city of Glasgow. The journey starts with the visit of the Cathedral and then we kick off with a lovely and relaxing panoramic tour of the main landmarks: the High Street, Tolbooth, the Market Cross, Glasgow Green with its beautiful Templeton, People’s Palace and Doulton Fountain; from there we drive along the banks of the River Clyde where you will learn all about the industrial past of the city with sights of the Finnieston Crane and the bridges. We’ll stop at the Armadillo and Scottish Hydro, two marvellous works of art made by the architect Norman Foster.

The tour will then take you to the monument of the Duke of Wellington where you’ll understand why the Glaswegians are most certainly among the quirkiest people in this world. The panoramic tour takes a break in George Square, right in the beating heart of Scotland’s largest city, where you will have the opportunity to do some shopping and grab some lunch. The panoramic tour retakes from here and will drive you to the Kelvingrove Museum and Glasgow University, one of the oldest universities of Scotland.

Balloch on Loch Lomond

We continue to the stunning Trossachs National Park and we stop on the banks of Loch Lomond, in a quaint town named Balloch. Here we can enjoy a walk along the banks of the loch or a cruise on its pristine waters.

Stirling Old Town and Castle

From 13th October 2019

We continue to one of Scotland’s ancient capitals: Stirling. Here you can visit the Castle, sitting high on volcano rock, is one of Scotland’s most historically significant fortresses and offers outstanding views of the valley below hosting the Wallace Monument, dedicated to the national hero William Wallace, known all around the world as Braveheart, for the movie starring Mel Gibson, and Stirling Bridge, the setting of the most famous battle ever fought in Scottish history.

Alternatively you can opt for a leisurely stroll along the Old Town for some sightseeing and shopping.

The Kelpies

We travel eastwards and before we return to Edinburgh, we make one last stop in Stirling. On the way back home you’ll see the Kelpies, the 30 metre high horsehead sculptures designed by sculptor Andy Scott completed in October 2013.

Starting from 13th October the tour route will no longer include the Kelpies. Last stop will be Stirling Old Town instead. Kelpies will only be visible passing by on the return journey to Edinburgh.
