''You Take The High Road and I'll Take The Low Road....''
Loch Lomond Tour From Glasgow
The Loch Lomond tour is a circular trip around the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. It begins at Balloch where you have the option of taking an hour long cruise on the loch. We then travel North, through Clan Colquhoun lands, along the 'Bonnie Banks' to the picturesque conservation village of Luss before driving on to the 18th century Drovers Inn for a refreshment.
From here we leave the Loch, ascending into the Highlands amid the Munros (mountain peaks over 3000 feet) such as Ben Lomond and Ben More and a visit to the Falls of Falloch, a picturesque waterfall in Glen Falloch. Turning East along Glen Dochart we stop to admire the Falls of Dochart in the village of Killin. Moving South through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and into Clan MacGregor territory, where you can visit the grave of famous Scottish outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor in Balquhidder.
Further south takes you into the Trossachs area of the national park, known as the Highlands in miniature, around several lochs, including the fantastically named Loch Drunkie, and over the Dukes Pass to the village of Aberfoyle. Leaving the Highlands and heading back into the Lowlands you will pass the Lake of Menteith, Scotland's only lake, home to the ancient priory of Inchmahome, a 16th century refuge for Mary Queen of Scots, before driving past the Campsie Hills and the iconic volcanic lump of Dumgoyne, at the foot of which you will find the Glengoyne Whisky Distillery - feel free to stop for a wee dram or two before returning to Glasgow!
A whisky distillery tour at either Deanston Distillery or Glengoyne Distillery can be included in this itinerary if you wish - just let me know when booking which distillery you wish to visit.
