See a bit of everything on this 8-hour private tour. Start with a short stop in the Georgian city center of Glasgow before heading to Stirling Castle, Bannockburn battlefield, the Trossachs National Park, and Loch Lomond. Hear tales of Scotland's turbulent history along the way from your driver-guide and even perhaps meet some Highland cows.

In the early morning, meet your driver-guide at the dockside. Together with your travel companions (maximum eight people), hop aboard the air-conditioned minivan and get ready for your 8-hour private shore excursion.

Start your tour with a 30-minute stop in Glasgow's Georgian city center, George Square. At one point Glasgow was the second most important city of the British Empire and remains an industrial capital of Scotland to this day. Leaving the city behind, head northeast toward Stirling and “Braveheart country.” Visit the battlefield of Bannockburn, where on the 23rd and 24th of June 1314 King Robert I “the Bruce”, defeated the armies of Edward II of England. Jump back on to the minivan and head up to Stirling Castle. Sitting high on its volcanic plug of rock, Stirling Castle was strategically the most important in the whole of the Kingdom of Scotland. After a photo stop head over the plains of Stirling and to the village of Doune for a visit to Doune Castle. Built in the 14th century, Doune Castle was home to Robert, Duke of Albany, the great grandson of Robert the Bruce. More recently the castle has been the location for Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Macbeth, Outlander, and Game of Thrones.

Continuing on, head toward the village of Callander, noted for the Romans, Rob “Roy” MacGregor, civil war, and its two resident celebrities, the Highland cows Hamish Dubh and Honey. Then it’s into Scotland's first national park, the Trossachs. A virtually unchanged landscape for nearly 300 years and made famous by the writings of Sir Walter Scott, the area is often described as the Highlands in miniature. Up and over the Duke's Pass, head down to the Victorian village of Aberfoyle for some lunch (own expense) and perhaps a little shopping.

Next, head toward the village of Balloch and the bonnie, or pretty, banks of Loch Lomond. If the weather permits, take the opportunity to enjoy a 1-hour sightseeing trip on the loch (extra cost). Leaving Balloch, through the town of Dumbarton, where Robert the Bruce died in 1329 and Mary, Queen of Scots left Scotland for France in 1547 at the age of five. Head over the river Clyde and arrive back at port eight hours later with a hundred memories and a camera full of photographs.

Spend the morning discovering the 2nd, and largest city in Scotland, Glasgow. After your panoramic tour you will have around 2 hours free time to take in the sights on foot. After lunch, it's off to the Auchentoshan distillery for your guided visit and a wee dram, then you take the short trip down to the banks of Loch Lomond and the beautiful Victorian village of Luss before heading back to your ship at Greenock

This allows you the opportunity to see a bit of everything. We start with a Glasgow tour where you will see amongst many other things, Glasgow University, the fourth oldest university in the English-speaking world and one of Scotland's four ancient universities, founded in 1451, the Kelvingrove gallery built in a Spanish Baroque style using red brick sandstone and dating from 1901.We stop for a visit to Glasgow Cathedral, the only medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland to have survived the Protestant Reformation of 1560 virtually intact.Over the road you step back in time and discover Glasgow’s unique history with a visit to the oldest house in the city Provand's Lordship, built in 1471, and one of only four medieval buildings to survive in Glasgow. Then it's down to the Georgian city centre, George Square and free time for lunch or just a walk around. At one point Glasgow was the second most important city of the British Empire, and still remains the “Industrial Capital” of Scotland today. Leaving the city behind us, we then head northwest towards  your visit to the Auchentoshan distillery. The distillery is also known as "Glasgow's Malt Whisky" due to its close proximity to Glasgow and "the breakfast whisky" due to its sweet and delicate nature. After your visit it's back on your vehicle as we head down to the banks of Loch Lomond and the village of Luss,

A settlement has stood on this site since medieval times although much of the current village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries, having been developed to house workers from nearby slate quarries.With its prim, identical sandstone and slate cottages garlanded in rambling roses, and its narrow sandy, pebbly strand, the village became a popular holiday destination during Victorian times. The 19th century parish church offers a haven of peace and has a lovely ceiling made from Scots pine rafters and some beautiful Victorian stained-glass windows. A number of early medieval and medieval monuments survive in the present churchyard, including simple cross-slabs which may date to as early as the 7th century AD, and a hogback grave-cover of the 11th century. After your visit we leave Luss behind us and it's along the banks of the river Clyde and back to your ship at Greenock

Enjoy a packed 12-hour private shore excursion that takes in Edinburgh, Rosslyn Chapel, and the famed Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Enjoy undivided attention from your driver-guide as you travel via VIP Class Mercedes minibus through the streets of Edinburgh's Old Town and New Town. Drive outside of the city to the mysterious medieval chapel, before returning to the capital for a local pub dinner and reserved seating for a stirring display of music and dance against the enchanting backdrop of Edinburgh Castle.

At midday, meet your driver-guide at the cruise terminal. Together with your travel companions (maximum 15 people), climb aboard your private air-conditioned minivan and prepare for a remarkable experience on this 12-hour private shore excursion that takes in the Scottish capital, Rosslyn Chapel, and the famed Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Starting on the Royal Mile, which joins Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse, wind through the twisting streets of Edinburgh's medieval Old Town and up the hills to sites of executions, cloned sheep, and the birthplace of Harry Potter. Hear your local guide's stories about the area's notorious denizens, including body-snatchers, witch hunters, firebrand priests, and philosophers. Learn about the hangings that took place in the Grassmarket as you marvel at the impenetrable Castle Rock above. Head into the New Town and compare its Georgian buildings and neat squares to the Old Town where families once lived in cramped conditions and trash was thrown out of the windows.

Drive just outside of the city for your visit to Rosslyn Chapel, founded in the 15th-century by William Sinclair, 1st Earl of Caithness of the Scoto-Norman Sinclair family. Since the late 1980s, the chapel has also featured in speculative theories concerning a connection to Freemasonry, the Knights Templar, and the Holy Grail. It was prominently featured in the 2003 bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code and its 2006 film adaptation. Take some time to explore the chapel's and its mysterious carvings before heading back into Edinburgh for dinner at a traditional Scottish pub.

Then it's up to Edinburgh castle and into your reserved seating for quite simply, one of the most spectacular shows you will ever see, the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. With the world-famous Edinburgh Castle as their backdrop, participants from the four corners of the globe meet and perform to 220,000 visitors over a 3-week period. In an unforgettable evening of music, ceremony, theatre, and dance, the Tattoo brings together musicians and performers from every part of the world for a fabulous display of international culture.

After the performance, meet your driver and return to your cruise ship roughly 12 hours after you set out.
