(Drop off option for anyone who wishes to “Go Ape” on the forest zipwire above the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park in Aberfoyle – you need 2-3 hours to properly do this – and to take the bus back from down in Aberfoyle to Stirling, that can be arranged – we just need to discuss and maximise our route before your “Go Ape” drop off http://goape.co.uk/days-out/aberfoyle)

Quickest way to Loch Lomond on the main roads are 50 minutes to Balmaha and 1 hour 20 minutes to Luss, as the 2 most scenic places (Balloch is a lot busier and it takes just over an hour to get there).

Instead of taking you on the rather boring busy main road, we love to take you on the scenic road to Loch Lomond (about 20 minutes longer) and then on the scenic route through the Trossachs back (about 1.5 hours longer or more depending on the number of stops and exact route).

We also  recommend the boat trip between the 2 most nicest places Luss and Balmaha through the islands.

Unicorn Tours would be happy to drop you off at Luss and pick you up at Balmaha, if you so wish.

If you are into walking we can drop you off at Balmaha and pick you up at Milarrochy bay, so you can wander along beaches opposite some stunning islands.

Sample route out to Loch Lomond (instead of driving on the boring main road) – this is Unicorn Tours’ preferred fast route out to Loch Lomond

•through Thornhill
•up through the Campsies with some spectacular views, wild scenery
•Balmaha, east side of Loch Lomond,

Possible route coming back, if you wish to have a real thorough spectactular journey and see the best that the Trossachs and Loch Lomond nationalpark has to offer, we very much recommend this route to you – this is our preferred stunning route to bring you back to Stirling
