LOCH LOMOND, STIRLING CASTLE AND THE TROSSACHS TOUR
Land of Legends and Heroes
Loch Lomond Coach Tour
Join us as we spend the day exploring Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and The Trossachs, Scotland’s true land of legends and heroes.
Your Sixstar Loch Lomond coach tour journey departs from Edinburgh, travelling through the West of the city your guide will share a lifetime of local insights
into Scotland’s World Heritage City Centre. Very soon we pick up speed as we hit the highway and follow the valley of the River Forth, one of
Scotland’s greatest rivers whose story is inextricably intertwined with our destination of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.
Our first stop of the day is at Helix Park, an Eco-park that straddles the Forth and Clyde canal, the country’s very first industrial super highway that links the East and West of Scotland. The horses heads known as the Kelpies tower over the site in testament to the work horses that powered our industrial revolution.
We continue our Loch Lomond Coach Tour journey North West, passing Stirling Castle where we will return later in the day. The landscape changes as we travel towards
The flat agricultural plains give way to a mysterious mountain landscape that was once home to Highland Clans and cattle rustlers.
Very soon you catch a glimpse of Loch Lomond, one of the largest and best-known bodies of freshwater anywhere in the Uk. Poets, writers, artists and outlaws have all drawn inspiration from this unique environment and you have the opportunity to experience your own breath-taking moments as we arrive at the conservation village of Luss or “Dark Village”. There has been a settlement here before since the sixth century and today Luss is one of Loch Lomond’s most popular destinations.
From the pier you have the option to join a boat cruise that takes in many of the island’s that are scattered around the Loch. If you prefer to stay on dry land you can explore this historic village, skim stones from the beach or for the young at heart join the Woodland Faerie Trail.
Our Loch Lomond Coach Tour journey continues to Aberfoyle in the heart of the Trossachs, sitting on the banks of the River Forth. Aberfoyle has it’s own enchanting connection with Faeries through Reverend Robert Kirk who compiled a collection of stories of local folklore and faerie folks. After stopping for lunch, we begin the climb through the Dukes pass, a mountainous route through the heart of the Trossachs.
This track through the mountains was opened in 1885 by the Duke of Montrose to connect the roads of the estate, some of the grandest views in the whole of the Highlands are waiting for you around every corner. From here we will continue to Stirling Castle, Scotland’s ancient Royal Palace and military stronghold. Sitting on top of a volcanic crag in the Forth valley. Stirling Castle has witnessed battles for the survival of Scotland, royal births, dark deeds and its own feathered birdman.
Immerse yourself in centuries of history as you wander through the Great Hall and Royal Palace. See for yourself the mighty defences that made
Stirling Castle such a formidable and prized fortress that continues to captivate visitors to this day.
After this full day out in the magical landscapes of Loch Lomond, the Trossachs and Stirling, we return to Edinburgh in the Early evening.

Places we visit
Each night when darkness appears and the sun goes down the Kelpies light up in all different colours. You will learn of the eerie tale about
Kelpies the shapeshifters from your guide.
The national park landscape is known as the Highlands in miniature and was the first area of the Highlands to open up to intrepid 19th Century visitors. These early Travellers endured much discomfort as they were hauled along unpaved tracks on an open pony and trap. Today the track might have been upgraded but the rugged scenic grandeur that takes your breath away remains!
You can follow in the footsteps of wanderers, clans folks and ancient armies.
To the South of the village is Luss Church built in 1875 and steeped in history.
It is a beautiful little church with a fascinating graveyard and the church interior is definitely worth exploring, in fact each year more than 100 couples from around the world get married here.
