We would be delighted to run this tour as a private, small group tour (up to 8 people)
From Stirling we may drive along the stunning Sheriffmuir route or via historic and beautiful Dunblane
with its Roman camp at Ardoch. From here it is only a short spectacular drive up the country road before we can have a coffee stop at the Auchingarrich Wildlife centre
with great view all around.
You can either visit the exhibition at the Cultybraggan WWII POW camp
and the charming Highland Perthshire village of Comrie.
Alternatively after Braco you may wish to head towards Muthill and the stunning Drummond castle & gardens
- featuring as Versailles in the Outlander series.
Once you are at the old market town of Crieff
you are only a short distance from the Famous Grouse Glenturret distillery
You may either go along the main or the southern back country route and then enter Highland Stirlingshire and the Loch Lomond & Trossachs nationalpark
Rob Roy, the famous clan chief of the local MacGregor clan lies buried in Balquhidder
and then along to the shores Loch Lubnaig
with more walking options – incl. the Falls of Leny
or take a break at the cosy log cabin cafe at the Loch Lubnaig Forestry commission cabines
Callander is the gateway to the Trossachs or go out exploring the Bracklinn falls.
If you are into some more adventure, while others go walking in the Queen Elizabeth forest park
and others relax in Aberfoyle.
The adventure might want to have a go at Go Ape & the zipwires
As this is only a short day tour we might like to point out that spectacular Loch Katrine
is just a short drive away over the spectacular Duke’s pass through the Queen Elizabeth forest park.
At Loch Katrine you might wish to join a cruise on the Sir Walter Scott steamship, which also drops off at the far end of the loch, if you wish to go walking or cycling back along Loch Katrine.
On the way back we pass the Deanston distillery
which also runs guided tours.
Through Doune and past the historic Doune castle
which also featured as “Castle Leoch/home of the MacKenzie clan in the Outlander series” and was used as a historic backdrop to film Monty Python and others.
For your info for another trip of your own, just as an idea, if you wish to visit our great Blair Drummond safari park you would need a minimum of 2 – 3 hours for that, we could drop you off there) and from the safari park corner of the main road every hour you could take bus number 59 back to Stirling
