Experience the majestic scenery of the Trossachs National Park on a full-day shore excursion from Greenock Port. Learn the history behind some of Scotland’s heroes, such as Rob Roy MacGregor. Visit Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and much more.
What to Expect
Explore the majestic scenery of the Trossachs National Park and discover where the Scottish Highlands meet the Lowlands. Learn more about some of the nation's heroes at historic castles and monuments.

Following a pick-up from Greenock Port, travel northeast into the Trossachs, known as “Scotland in Miniature” for the craggy hills and sparkling lochs. Discover where writers such as Sir Walter Scott found their inspiration. Continue into “Braveheart” country to see the magnificent landscapes of Stirlingshire and Stirling Castle, the latter arguably one of the most important castles in Scotland.

The Old Town of Stirling is still surrounded by its 16th-century walls, built to protect Mary Queen of Scots from Henry VIII. Enjoy some free time to tour the castle and learn about the exploits of Robert the Bruce. Then enjoy some refreshments at the café, before driving into the heart of the Trossachs and the home of the folk hero Rob Roy MacGregor and his “Children of the Mist.”

Go to Kilmahog to get up-close to Highland cattle. Then journey to the village of Aberfoyle just below the Highland fault line. Stop for a bite to eat before traveling through Trossachs National Park to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. Marvel at one of the largest lochs in Scotland and see many of its islands. Enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding mountains before the return journey through Campsie Fells to Greenock Port and your drop off.
