Start the day
You’ll start the day at Glasgow George Square, a great place to marvel at the architecture that defines this city. It’s also home to a number of famous buildings including the striking City Chambers.
From here, you’ll take a short journey to the famous horse statue Glasgow is known for. Sitting high upon Royal Exchange Square, the Duke of Wellington upon a horse was erected in 1844. It has, however, caused some controversy in recent years, as people often adorn it with a traffic cone!
A Glasgow day trip would not be complete without a visit to the most iconic building of all – Glasgow Cathedral. The oldest building in the city (823 years’ old), it spans back to the early 11th century, bringing a taste of gothic influence to the area.
Striking out to Stirling
The less tourist-heavy cobbled streets of Stirling are well worth a visit. Just half-an-hour away by car, gives you enough time to recharge on this second part of your Glasgow day tour.
With the benefit of private chauffer, you’re able to visit what many can’t by foot – the Helix Stirling. Straddling the outskirts of the city, this expansive eco-park spans 360 hectares, as a local beauty spot. It’s also home to one of Scotland’s foremost sculptures – The Kelpies. At 30-metres high, these giant horse heads have become a popular attraction for selfies, filming and TV backdrops!
As you head toward the city, you’ll observe Falkirk Wheels Stirling. This awe-inspiring engineering feat is a rotating boat lift that connects local canals, as part of Stirling’s recent regeneration.
As you enter the city, you’ll see Stirling Castle sitting atop Castle Hill – a stalwart in the skyline since 1490. With its imposing presence and fascinating history, it attracts visitors from far and wide. It’s also one of the most breathtaking castles near Glasgow.
The Final Leg
As your day tour from Glasgow draws to a close, there’s two more highlights to expect. The first is the National Wallace Monument. Resembling something straight out of Game of Thrones, this nimble tower pays homage to one of Scotland’s famous crusaders – Sir William Wallace.
With its foreboding presence, you’ll be back in the car for the final pit stop: a tour of Loch Lomond.
Nestled in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, this stunning backdrop is all things you could hope for when visiting Stirling and indeed Scotland. Be sure to have a fully-charged camera for capturing its flowing rivers, endless fields and unfolding beauty.
As your Scotland tour from Glasgow concludes, our driver will return you to the starting point of George Square.
