What you'll do

Enjoy a private tour of the Southern Highlands that takes in beautiful Highland scenery, fascinating clan stories and world-famous whisky as you get the local insight into this stunning corner of Scotland.

Get picked up from anywhere in Stirling for a private tour that’ll give you real insight to the culture and history of the Southern Highlands. You’ll be using a private minivan to get around for the day, your first stop being the impressive Doune Castle.

A medieval keep that has had a breath of new life thanks to its appearances in the Outlander TV show and the somewhat famous Game of Thrones, you’ll enjoy a unique experience here before heading just upriver to Deanston.

Once a purpose-built mill village, it’s now home to a one-of-a-kind distillery, where you’ll sample some real Highland whisky and learn about the processes involved in making it. The tour of the distillery is not included in the price as there are many different tours to choose from, so we let you decide when you arrive which one you’d like to do.

And if you’re into unique gifts or quirky souvenirs, we can make a stop at an old-school antique and art centre.

Stop for a lunch of fresh, local Scottish produce in the idyllic town of Callander, before we head into the Highlands proper. In Balquhidder enjoy an easy hike that offers stunning views of Loch Voil and learn about Scottish folklore and clan history at the grave of the infamous Rob Roy MacGregor.

Relax on the picturesque banks of Loch Earn and take a scenic drive through the Perthshire Hills, before you are dropped back off in Stirling after a full day of adventure in the Highlands.
