Glasgow Free Walking Tour
Everyday at 10:30
Do you want to know the real story behind William Wallace and Robert the Bruce? And while you do that, do you also want to see beautiful landscapes and historic buildings? If so, this tour is perfect for you!
On this day trip, you will learn about the events that shaped Scotland to become the country it is today. Discover more about Scottish wars, myths, folklore and, of course, whisky.
Soon after you get on the bus, you will see two enormous sculptures! The Kelpies, two 30-metre high horse-head sculptures. As you will discover in the tour, the Kelpies are part of Scottish myths and acted as a cautionary tale, same as many other folklore stories.
But as mentioned earlier, you will also get to see other historical events and wars that influenced Scotland. What better place than Stirling to learn about the Anglo-Scottish wars and their heroes? Learn all about the true story behind William Wallace and who was the real Braveheart! The stop includes an optional visit to Stirling Castle*.
Along with the Kelpies and Stirling, other great attractions wait for you! Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park features some of the most beautiful landscapes you will ever see!
On the tour, you will also have the option to discover a distillery* since whisky forms an essential part of Scottish history and culture. The ticket for the distillery is optional, and along with the guided visit, you will have the chance to taste some whiskies.
Note: Tickets to Stirling Castle and the Whisky Distillery are not included.

Brilliant day trip - strongly recommend booking! A must if you visit Edinburgh. We wanted to explore outside of edinburgh for the day and this was ideal. Booking was so easy. The pick up point super central. Rich and the team very welcoming. We spent the day visiting the kelpies, Loch Lomond and Stirling castle. Rich did an amazing job with engaging and informative commentary spliced with some tunes! If you have a spare day - book this tour! You won't regret it!
The guide for our tour was very friendly, knowledgeable, and interesting. He told a good mix of history together with pop culture facts and Scottish myths. Stirling castle and the distillery were fascinating and Loch Lomond was beautiful. The guide even had Scottish music and folk songs to go along with the locations. The only complaint I might raise is that I wanted a little more time in each location, but otherwise this tour was great!
The tour was very interesting and funny. Our tour guide Fraser loves his job and that made the difference. Much love from Spain
