As hush falls and darkness deepens, the great oak gates of the Castle sweep open and the swell of the pipes and drums cracks through the night sky. Your coach awaits to transfer you back to your hotel late evening.

The first stop of the day on your included excursion will be the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond; one of the prettiest and largest lochs in the whole of Scotland.

Alternatively, take a stroll through one of the picturesque loch side villages with its quaint houses, cafes and stunning views across Loch Lomond's shoreline.  We continue through the Trossachs National Park, also known as 'the Highlands in Miniature' for it's abundance of lochs, mountains and forests. It's also famous for the legendary outlaw, Rob Roy MacGregor.  Dinner, bed & breakfast
