Leave Glasgow 27 minutes After leaving the centre of Glasgow via the motorway we are very quickly in the open countryside with Stirling and its surrounding hills soon visible in the distance. We have three places to visit in Stirling. Stirling Castle Stirling Castle is one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland, historically and architecturally. The castle sits high on a volcanic outcrop, guarding the lowest crossing point of the River Forth. There is a lot to be discovered and enjoyed in the castle. The William Wallace Monument Just a 8 minute drive from the Castle, this iconic monument is 220 feet high and sited on top of Abbey Craig hill above the fields, where in 1297, Wallace led his troops to victory at The Battle of Stirling Bridge. There are 276 steps to the top, but its well worth the climb. Old Stirling Bridge A short drive from The Wallace Monument brings us to Stirling Bridge. The present Stirling Bridge was built in the 1400s replacing a succession of timber bridges. In 1297 William Wallace defeated Edward 1's forces at The Battle of Stirling Bridge. Today the bridge is one of the best medieval masonry arch bridges in Scotland. Stirling to Glasgow return route Our trip back is especially scenic with pretty villages, grand views with two excellent stops available if you so chose. Glengoyne Distillery 45 minutes of scenic driving with the Highlands to our right and the Campsie Range of Hills on our left. Glengoyne Distillery has a number of tours available. Your itinerary can be adjusted if you want to take part in a tour, however, even without a tour it is still a great place for a stop, the picturesque buildings, the shop and the yard full of whisky casks provide a wonderful atmosphere. Luss Loch Lomond Luss, a very pretty village situated on the western shore of Loch Lomond is one of Scotland's most popular villages to visit. Walk past the pretty sandstone and slate cottages to the pier for wonderful views up and down Loch Lomond and across the loch to the mountains. From the pier a very short walk to the atmospheric church graveyard which has graves dating back to 600AD / 700AD. There is also a 1000 year old Viking grave to amaze you. Return to Glasgow
