STIRLING CASTLE, ABERFOYLE AND LOCH LOMOND (8 HOURS)
An hour’s journey from Glasgow sees us arrive in the City of Stirling, where the mighty castle predominates the landscape. Become part of 16th century castle life through the living history demonstrations, tours and exhibitions. Stirling Castle http://www.stirlingcastle.gov.uk/ continues to live and breathe and offers a fantastic family adventure through the annals of time.
During your visit to Stirling Castle, step back into the 16th. century and immerse yourself in the glorious history of Scotland’s renaissance Kings and Queens.
We then make our way to the Scottish Wool Center http://www.visit-lochlomond.com/content/scottish-wool-centre-2 in Aberfoyle. After lunch, we take time to enjoy sheepdog demonstrations and shopping provided by the Scottish Wool Centre. Here we watch the shepherd put his working dog through its paces and get up close and personal with an exciting variety of birds of prey.
On the return journey home we take time to photograph the breathtaking scenery of the “Bonnie Banks” of Loch Lomond http://visit-lochlomond.com/ at either the picturesque village of Balmaha, or at Duck Bay on the west side of the Loch.
