Callander

Callander is a busy tourist town with quant old style shops on both side of the street, situated on the banks of the River Teith, close to Stirling, and is often described as the gateway to the Highlands.

The pretty town of Callander is historically a meeting point between the Highlands and the Lowlands.

This holiday town is a popular base for tourists exploring the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and ‘Rob Roy Country’, or stopping off on their way up into the Highlands.

Stirling

Stirling Castle is one of Scotland’s most historically sites with great views over Stirling. The Castle was once a favoured residence of the Stewart Clan, kings and queens who held grand celebrations there.

Knights, nobles and foreign ambassadors once flocked to Stirling Castle to revel in its grandeur with its superb sculptures and beautiful gardens.

Stirling Castle has a 5 star rating from the Scottish Tourist Board and has an entry fee of £9.00 per person.

After our stop in Stirling we will make our way back to Greenock and your ship. Hopefully with your camera full of great pictures and you having great memories of your visit on The Loch Lomond Tour.
