Your tour then heads for the Trossachs, known as the "Highlands in miniature," for its bounty of woodland, lochs, and mountains. After a lunch break in the quaint village of Aberfoyle (own expense), continue your tour with visits to sites related to Scottish folk hero, Rob Roy.

I love the stone in Scotland. It is used in buildings from houses to castles, streets and sidewalks are usually paved with stone, either large slabs of flagstone or small long rectangular stones buried, except for the top face, in the ground. Luss was a delightful little

Robert was an incredible tour guide and knew a whole lot of information for all of us on the bus. The views were absolutely stunning and he even bought us carrots to feed the hairy coos! It could not have been a better day! Worth every second!
