You will then proceed towards one of the most scenic areas in Scotland, the Trossachs and Loch Lomond National Park, also known as ‘the Scottish Highlands in Miniature’, for it offers such a splendid view over myriad gorgeous lochs, untamed mountains and wonderful forests. You will be making several stops at various scenic locations, to ensure that you get to enjoy the absolute best of the beautiful Trossachs.

You will have the pleasure of taking a stroll near Loch Katrine, one of the most beautiful in all of Scotland. Set in the centre of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Loch Katrine is said to of inspired great literary figures, including Sir Walter Scott who wrote his famed poem Lady of the Lake in 1810 after visiting Loch Katrine. One last treat will be a stop at Aberfoyle where you will explore the impressive forest park, complete with stunning waterfall and scenic views over the famous Scottish highlands.
