First and foremost, traveling in our spacious executive cars ensures a comfortable and luxurious journey for you and your group. Our vehicles are designed with your comfort in mind, featuring up to 8 passenger seats. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the scenic landscapes as you embark on your Lowlands adventure. -Firstly we'll visit Blackness Castle, a formidable fortress known as the 'Ship that Never Sailed'. -Its then time to visit the ruins of Linlithgow Palace, which was one of the principal residences of the monarchs of Scotland in the 15th and 16th centuries. -Next stop is the Kelpies. These are 100ft tall horse-head sculptures. Built 2013 between Falkirk and Grangemouth. The origins of the kelpie are believed to be rooted in human sacrifices to the water gods however this concept eventually died out and the story of the kelpie was then used to keep children from playing too near the lochs and dangerous rivers. -We'll move on now to the Falkirk Wheel, which is a rotating boat lift in Tamfourhill, Falkirk, in central Scotland, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. -Now its time to explore another Castle. located in Stirling, its one of the largest and most historically and architecturally important castles in Scotland. The castle sits atop an intrusive crag, which forms part of the Stirling Sill geological formation. It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defensive position. Its strategic location, guarding what was, until the 1890s, the farthest downstream crossing of the River Forth, has made it an important fortification in the region from the earliest times. -Wallace Monument is the next stop. The National Wallace Monument is a 67 metre tower on the shoulder of the Abbey Craig, a hilltop overlooking Stirling in Scotland. It commemorates Sir William Wallace, a 13th- and 14th-century Scottish hero. -Then we'll drive to Dunfermline Abbey, an ancient abbey with royal connections. Discover the abbey's rich history, and stroll amidst the ruins. -On our trip home we'll make one last stop at the Queensferry Crossing Bridge for some spectacular photos of the 3 bridges. All tours are customizable to suit your needs.
