Leaving Edinburgh we travel west where our first stop is the Wallace Monument* in Stirling; a towering stone testimonial to the Scottish legend William Wallace. Inside you will find fascinating exhibits leading you through the life of the real Braveheart, and most impressive of all, Wallace’s legendary 5ft 6in (1.7m) tall broadsword.

Travel north to Gleneagles Hotel Estate, home to three of Scotland’s world class golf courses and the site of the 2014 Ryder Cup. Enjoy a photo opportunity here and see where the international legends of golf play.
Continue your journey through the pretty countryside of Perthshire to our next stop in Crieff, where we visit The Famous Grouse Experience at Glenturret Distillery. Learn about the traditional whisky-making process. See how you measure up to the world’s largest bottle of whisky and sample some of ‘The Water of Life’ itself at the fantastic Taste Experience bar. Timberbush Tours customers can also enjoy an exclusive tasting of the Black Grouse Alpha Edition; a rich, smoky blend offered only at Glenturret Distillery. Enjoy a range of delicious lunch options in the Glenturret Café or take a stroll in the distillery grounds.

After lunch, we move on through the picturesque scenery of the “Sma’ Glen” until we reach the beautiful Hermitage for a short woodland walk (time permitting). Afterwards, we continue on to the town of Dunkeld, where we break for refreshments and a visit to ancient Dunkeld Cathedral. We then leave Perthshire and journey to the charming town of South Queensferry, where we make a brief stop to admire magnificent views of the Forth Bridges before returning to Edinburgh.
