Our first stop is Doune - a well preserved 14th century castle, set amid the lovely Stirlingshire countryside.
Here you can take an audio tour of the Castle* narrated by Monty Python's Terry Jones and hear the exciting history of the medieval castle and it's residents. Doune Castle is the atmospheric stand-in for the fictional Castle Leoch in the TV show Outlander and can also be seen as a film location in Game of Thrones.

We then journey north passing lochs and mountains before stopping at Kilchurn Castle set on the banks of Loch Awe; this is one of the most photographed Castles in Scotland and often seen in Calendars
Our next stop is Inverary, where your driver will give you a tour of the picturesque town and you will have plenty of time to enjoy lunch, and perhaps visit the jail* or castle* (featured in Downtown Abbey)
Leaving Inverary, you can enjoy views of Loch Fyne, famous for its seafood, before heading over the mountains with a brief photograph stop at the top of the Rest & Be Thankful Pass.
We then stop in the village of Luss, located on the banks of Loch Lomond before returning back to Edinburgh via Stirling with views of Stirling Castle.
