Enjoy all the fun of the festive season and stay at the award winning Winnock Hotel set in the centre of Drymen village, just a short distance from Loch Lomond. The hotel is a former 18th century coaching inn and offers traditional Scottish hospitality and freshly prepared local food.
You will discover the awe-inspiring beauty of Scotland on our tour, where we experience the spellbinding splendour of its mysterious lochs. We enjoy a captivating cruise on stunning Loch Katrine situated in the idyllic Trossachs National Park. We combine this lovely scenery with a man-made engineering masterpiece, the Kelpies. Standing at 100ft tall, these equine structures have become an iconic part of the landscape.
Day 1: Following your home taxi collection we make our way north to our hotel in the Trossachs National Park for four nights. There will be a welcome drinks reception upon arrival whilst your bags are taken to your rooms.
Day 2: Today we visit The Kelpies, the world’s largest equine sculptures and a true masterpiece of engineering, designed by Andy Scott. The story of the Kelpies is brought to life on our walking tour, which allows us to see a Kelpie from the inside for an exclusive look at their ingenuity. After the tour you will be treated to a free hot drink. From here we head to Stirling, a city steeped in history, and enjoy some time at leisure.
Day 3: After breakfast we make our way to the east side of the Trossachs National Park and to the village of Callander. This thriving town set beneath high, wooded crags is situated on the River Teith and is often described as the gateway to the Highlands. During our time at leisure we can explore the tearooms and unique shops or enjoy a peaceful stroll in the central Ancaster Square, dominated by the former St Kessog’s Church. From here we make a short journey to Kilmahog and the woollen mill. Tonights evening meal will be a traditional Christmas dinner, with a gift for everyone.
Day 4: We head to Loch Katrine, a 13km-long freshwater loch and the gateway to the magnificent Trossachs National Park. Here we enjoy a leisurely 90 minute cruise with live carol singers, mince pies and mulled wine. These vessels honour the legacy of Sir Walter Scott, the Scottish poet who immortalised the lake’s beauty in his poem The Lady of the Lake, and offer a unique way to experience this stunning loch and the picturesque surrounding scenery. Following our cruise we head to Aberfoyle Trossachs Discovery Centre for free time, before heading back to the hotel.
Day 5: After breakfast we make our way back to Norfolk making suitable stops en-route. Upon arrival our door to door taxi service will be waiting to take you home.
