Your Itinerary

The Battle of Bannockburn Experience

Your first stop is The Battle of Bannockburn Visitor Centre is a state of the art experience where you can totally immerse yourself in a 3D medieval battle. Watch as the horses gallop towards you and try to dodge the arrows as they come rushing through the air before your eyes. The visitor centre is one of Scotland’s top attractions.

Admission Not Included

Stirling Castle

Travel on to the mighty Stirling Castle – the reason why so many battles took place around here was in order to hold the strategic importance of Stirling, which overlooked the lowest bridging point across the River Forth. From the battlements, follow the gaze of King Robert Bruce himself as his statue looks towards Bannockburn, the site of his most famous victory. Savour the imposing Wallace Monument as it stands out against the scenic Ochil Hills.

Admission Not Included

Stirling Bridge

Whilst en-route to The Wallace Monument we travel by Stirling Old Bridge, the present Stirling Old Bridge was built in the 1400s, replacing a succession of timber bridges. Undoubtedly the best-known of these was one that stood nearby in the 1290s, when Sir William Wallace and Sir Andrew Moray defeated Edward I’s forces at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297. The bridge also played a part in the Jacobite Rising of 1745, when an arch was removed to forestall Bonnie Prince Charlie’s forces as they marched south. The bridge today remains one of the best medieval masonry arch bridges in Scotland.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was built around 1400 by Robert Stewart, 1st Duke of Albany, Earl of Menteith and Fife, a magnificent late 14th century courtyard castle Its most striking feature is the 100ft high gatehouse which includes the splendid Lord’s Hall with its musicians’ gallery, double fireplace and carved oak screen and you can hear the stories of the making of Monty Python and the Holy Grail which was also filmed at the castle.

Admission Not Included

National Wallace Monument

The National Wallace Monument is a draw for all Wallace fans and it is no mean feat to reach the top of the 246 steps , but you are rewarded with the most wonderful view. The monument tells the story of Wallace and his importance to Scotland’s national identity. The wooded walk is not for the faint hearted but there is also minibus should you prefer to use it.

Our family spent an amazing day with Brian. He was very knowledgeable and gave us exactly what we wanted in our "William Wallace Day" and then some. It was an awesome day but Brian it made it even better! This is well worth the cost!

Peter wad an unbelievably great tour guide. He tailored our day to what we wanted to see and where we wanted to spend the most time at. He took us through each of the sites we visited and gave us a ton of great information. He was very informative. Peter made this the best tour that we took during our entire time in Scotland!!!

William was great as our guide. Very comfortable. Great knowledge without to much talking all the time

Bettie_B

Brian was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and accommodated what we wanted to see and allowed us to stay as long as we wanted too. Also took us as close as possible to our Airbnb which was not easy as the Royal Mile was still closed to the Queens death.

Our guide and chauffeur William was excellent; he made our experience a lifetime memory for my family and me. He drove us all around historic sites and made the experience enjoyable both personally and professionally as we followed the historic timelines and events over many centuries. Thank you.

Our family had a wonderful day touring Stirling Castle and the William Wallace Monument. Our guide, Brian, was a fabulous host and guide. The private tour allowed us flexibility we would not have in a group tour. We would absolutely recommend!
