I'm wondering about public transportation from Stirling to the Trossachs. I see that there's a shuttle around different parts of the Trossachs, which I'm sure I'll make use of, but what's the easiest place to stay in if I plan on arriving by train or bus from Stirling?
My plans are to rent a car in Glasgow, drive to the Isle of Skye and spend a few days there, return the car in Glasgow, then take a train/bus to Stirling and somehow get to the Trossachs for a couple of days before I travel by train/bus to Edinburgh for my last few days in Scotland. Is this realistic? Is there adequate public transport that I won't end up a lot of time waiting for different trains and buses? Would it be a better idea to keep the car for 2 extra days and drive to the Trossachs, then drive back to Glasgow and take a train from there to Edinburgh? I'd rather use as much public transport as possible, but if I'm going to spend all my time on different forms of transportation, I'll reconsider how long I keep the car.
