We had a wonderful time on this Full Day tour. Our guide was awesome! Stirling Castle, Trossachs National Park and finally Glengoyne Distillery were just brilliant! My Husband really enjoyed the nature walk too. We highly recommend this tour! When we return to Scotland; we will be using Viator again!

Our driver Iain was delightful, enthusiasitic and full of little anecdotes as well as history to keep the day fully entertaining. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. It was nice being such a small group that allowed for some leisurely time to explore and take photos. The bGlencoyne distillery was a great, informative tour and we especially loved the breathtaking scenery at Stirling.

This was a great tour! It was a very cold day so we took a slightly different route than normal but the sun was out all day and we got wonderful clear skies. Stirling castle was not the most stunning but it had a very interesting history and there was a wonderful tour guide there who showed us around. In addition there were very interesting exhibits there and wonderful views of the countryside. The town where we had lunch was very small and there weren't too many options for vegetarians but I was able to find something at a coffee shop. In addition there is a grocery store with sandwiches, etc. The visit to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs was the highlight of the tour for me, with majestic views and a nice, if short, walk. The tour of Glengoyne Distillery was lovely, a great way to end the day. If you are interested in seeing the highlands or getting more time outdoors this is not the best tour, but it was a good way to see a little bit of everything for those who don't have more than a day to spare.

Gorgeous castle. Lucked out and was there on a clear and sunny day. Everywhere you look is a postcard. Could spend hours just taking pictures on the outside from the Castle. The extra stops were nice as well. Very scenic. The Whisky portion of the tour was nice too. Very good Whisky. Very informative. Please note this tour goes through the highlands lots of hills, valleys and winding turns. If you get motion sickness pretty easily, don't go on this tour. It is very disrupting to everyone else, when we have to constantly stop so you can throw up.

We enjoy visiting the castle and especially the Glencoyne Whisky distillery. We learned a lot about whisky making and it was enlightening. Great tour!

We had a wonderful tour! James was very knowledgeable and his love for Scotland and its history was obvious. The tour of the Glengoyne Distillery was a perfect way to close out the tour. I’d recommend this tour to anyone visiting Edinburgh.
