Loch Lomand & Stirling day trip

We will be staying in Edinburgh in Sept. and would like to see

Loch Lomand and Stirling. We don't want to rent a car. The tours all look interesting but we would like to spend more time in Stirling

than any of the tours allow. Are there any trains or buses from Edinburgh that we could take and see both in one day?

It is very easy to get to Stirling by train from Edinburgh and does not take long.

Www.Thetrainline.com gives a timetable - use Waverley or Haymarket station in Edinburgh depending on where you are

If you wanted to link to loch lomond you could get a train from Stirling to Glasgow and then up to Loch Lomondside - but it would be a lot of changes in 1 day. I might look at a tour for loch loomed for convenience and the train for Stirling

I know Rabbies does a day trip via Stirling to Inversnaid, which is a particularly scenic route. There are several other companies doing Stirling and Loch Lomond, but I suspect they mostly go to the south of the Loch:

Sorry, I didn't read your post closely. You could choose a tour that goes to Stirling as the last stop and tell the driver you'll make your own way back by train or bus.
