The largest lake in Scotland and Britain, Loch Lomond forms part of Scotland’s first national park, and is arguably the best spot in the country for hiking, hillwalking, and cycling. Get your bearings and enjoy the view from Loch Lomond Shores before taking in the sights at Balloch Castle Country Park. Luss Village is worth a visit in itself for the picturesque town alone, if not for the golden beach and four walking trails that begin there.
This stunning medieval city is the jewel in Scotland’s crown, and ever popular with visitors. Edinburgh Castle sits right in the centre on top of a craggy hill overlooking everything below, with Greyfriars Kirkyard and Mary King’s Close providing plenty more insights into this city’s spooky, creepy history. The Edinburgh arts festival in August is one of the best in the world and not to be missed.
On arrival in Edinburgh/Glasgow Airport, pick up self-drive car and start your journey. You will drive through the area known as the Trossachs in the heart of Scotland. Make a stop at Stirling Castle – Stirling has many reminders of the famous William Wallace, star of the film “Braveheart”. Continue around the scenic Loch Lomond and through the Argyll Forest one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland. Make a stop at Inveraray on the banks of Loch Fyne where you can visit Inveraray which tells the tale of prison life in the 18th & 19th centuries. Continue north to the Oban area for overnight.
After breakfast explore Oban making a visit to McCaigs Tower from where you can see the island of Mull and beyond on a clear day. Departing Oban journey north to Fort William via Appin passing on your way Castle Stuart set on its own island. Fort William nestles at the foot of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland. Take a trip on the Anoch Mor Gondola and enjoy some magnificent views across to the West and East coasts of Scotland. From Fort William travel northeast through the Great Glen towards Inverness. En-route you will travel along the Caledonian Canal which links Fort William and Inverness and of which Loch Ness forms a part. Travel along the banks of this famous loch keeping an eye open for the famous monster “Nessie”. Overnight in the Inverness area
One of Scotland’s most historic cities, Stirling was at one time the only link to the Highlands and was the battleground for many wars over independence. Its looming castle is one of the premier royal residences from centuries past and once of the best preserved in the country. The Old Bridge and Bannockburn are other highly significant battle sites, while the Old Town Jail and Wallace Monument are also worth checking out.
Picture yourself soaking up the atmosphere of this 18th century Inn near Loch Lomond, sitting beside the roaring log fire whilst planning your day’s exploration of the surrounding beautiful Trossachs countryside with many castles, gardens and city attractions within easy reach. After a full day’s excitement, return to your tasteful Elegance or Heritage bedroom, many with Balconies or Four Poster beds, to prepare for a night to remember; good food, fine wine and friendly service.

When Scottish tennis superstar Andy Murray acquired Cromlix, close to his hometown of Dunblane, it signalled not only a return to his roots but the chance to reinvent the glorious era of grand country house living.
Following extensive refurbishment, the US Open, Olympic and Wimbledon champion has transformed the elegant Victorian Perthshire mansion into a luxury 15-bedroom and Gate Lodge, five-star destination, ahead of the 2014 Ryder Cup, which is being staged a short drive away at Gleneagles
The hotel, which opened in Spring 2014, offers guests the chance to experience the sort of decadent lifestyle once enjoyed by the Lairds of Cromlix, redefined for the 21st century by sumptuous surroundings and impeccable yet discreet service.
Situated in beautiful countryside, just three miles from Dunblane, Cromlix is set in 34 acres of secluded woodlands and garden grounds, with its own chapel and house loch. The hotel boasts a Chez Roux restaurant, offering reasonable priced menus that focus on using seasonal locally sourced produce wherever possible, five suites and ten bedrooms, gate lodge accommodation, reception hall, two drawing rooms, conservatory, dining room, snooker and meeting rooms.
Elegantly re-designed to showcase much of the house’s original heritage, Cromlix has been furnished with specially-sourced Scottish antique furniture.
