After an amazing night of exploring Edinburgh’s best pubs, we decided to spend our last full day in Scotland taking a tour outside of the city center. We bought tickets through a company called ‘Haggis Adventures’ where by small coach bus we were taken to Stirling Castle, the Loch Lomond and then a whiskey distillery!
Our First stop was at Stirling Castle, where I pretending to be William Wallace from Braveheart and clumsily climbed a “mountain” yelling “They may take our land-but they will never take-our freeedoom-ahhhhhh!”
After I got that out of my system, we continued to tour the outside of the castle, which has breath-taking views.
I also learned a little history that Sterling Castle has been taken over time and time again over the centuries.
From a distance we were able to see the William Wallace Monument, but unfortunately, it was too far away for us to trek to.
Overall, it was a beautiful Castle and the views alone were worth the trip.
Our next stop on the tour was Loch Lomond
I tried to keep an eye out for Nessy, the Loch-Ness Monster, but he was nowhere to be found.
Last on our tour today was the Whiskey Distillery in Glengoyne!
Not only was the whiskey delish (and I am not a whiskey fan!) if you paid an extra fee, you can cork your own bottle of whiskey, which my friend Jeff did!
COOLEST thing about this distillery? If you’re brave enough to run in the middle of the road between the parking lot and the distillery, you’re standing in the high lands AND the low lands. You’re in two places at once!
