  • Glasgow

    Take to the bustling M8 and head for the heart of Scotland’s largest city – Glasgow. Jam-packed with internationally-acclaimed museums and galleries, stunning architecture, vibrant nightlife, fantastic shopping and a range of renowned restaurants and bars ranging, it’s a city that crackles and fizzes with atmosphere from dawn till dusk. Take it all in.
  • Loch Lomond

    After the sensory overload of Glasgow, it’s time to get out of the city and head for the bonny banks of Loch Lomond. Take the Erskine Bridge, admiring the views of the River Clyde en route, and head North West on the A82.
    Scotland’s first National Park is packed with packed with things to see and do - breathtakingly beautiful scenery, incredible experiences on and off the water, and fantastic food and drink await!
  • Perth

    Leaving the lovely shores of Lomond behind, take the A811 and A9 north towards Scotland’s ancient capital – picturesque Perth.
    Set on the banks of Scotland’s longest River, the Tay, Perth has a rich history stretching back over 800 years and has the architecture (and palace – beautiful Scone) to prove it.
    Now known for its culinary royalty rather than the traditional kind, the city is one of Scotland's premier culinary centres with an array of restaurants serving up locally-sourced cuisine fit for a king.
  • St Andrews

    Head for the A90, passing Dundee and over the Tay Road Bridge en route, as you make your way for historic Kingdom of Fife and the unforgettable medieval streets of St Andrews.
    Known worldwide as The Home of Golf, this beautiful coastal town also boasts Scotland's oldest university, spectacular beaches, and even one of the nation’s 13 Michelin-starred restaurants – the world-renowned Peat Inn.
    Whether you’re driving for the fairway, the food, or the history, it’s a journey you won’t regret.
  • Stirling

    Leave the many appeals of St Andrews behind and head south west on the A91 to follow in the footsteps of the likes of William Wallace and Robert the Bruce as you make your way to the castle walls of historic Stirling.
    Stirling is Scotland's heritage capital, where the Wars of Independence were fought and won, where for three centuries monarchs ruled in regal splendour and where merchants and craftsmen plied their trade below the castle rock.
    Relive Scotland’s history in the castle that dominates the town’s skyline or pay your respects at the National Wallace Monument, where you can climb its 246 steps for incredible views stretching from the Forth bridges to Loch Lomond.
  • Falkirk

    Make your way onto the nearby M9 and head south to Falkirk, where a unique fusion of modern wonders and historic treasures await.
    From the Antonine Wall – the remains of the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire (step aside Hadrian!) – to The Falkirk Wheel – the world’s only rotating boat lift – and The Kelpies – the largest pair of equine sculptures on the planet – Falkirk is filled to the brim with unique, unforgettable experiences.
  • Edinburgh

    Jump back on the M9 and head east to the final stop of your epic central belt adventure – Edinburgh.
    With a skyline dominated by its eponymous, iconic castle, Scotland’s capital is a city of sweeping elegance, unique character, and world-class visitor attractions.
    It’s one of the most intoxicating, vibrant, and beautiful cities on the planet – a place where you can climb an extinct volcano; glimpse (and sample) the world’s largest collection of whisky; dance the night away in one of its many bars and clubs; or simply sit back, relax and watch the world pass by from one of its many excellent pubs and cafes.
    Whatever you’re looking for, Edinburgh never disappoints.

Don’t Miss

See the world’s largest equine sculptures, the colossal, 30-metre-tall Kelpies up close. Clad in shimmering steel and designed by Scottish sculptor Andy Scott, the sculptures form the gateway to the historic Forth & Clyde Canal in Grangemouth near Falkirk and serve as monumental tributes to the horse-powered heritage that was vital to the early industries of central Scotland. Visit at night to see the sculptures’ light show – it’ll take your breath away!

See & Do

No road trip around the central belt would be complete without a visit to Edinburgh Castle. Scotland’s most famous castle is known the world over and played a pivotal role in the history of the nation – it’s no surprise there’s no shortage of things to see and do. Explore the stories of the kings enthroned upon the Stone of Destiny; hear your footsteps echo in the city’s oldest building, St Margaret’s Chapel; or cover your ears as the iconic one o’clock gun blasts over the city.

Eat & Drink

Built in 1705, The Drover’s Inn still looks and feels as if Rob Roy himself could walk in through its low-slung doorways at any minute. With stuffed animals on the walls, roaring fires in the rooms, a menu plucked straight from your mammy’s cookbook, and plenty of nooks and crannies – and single malts – to get lost in, a night at the Drover’s is something you won’t forget. Grab a seat, settle in, and experience one of Loch Lomond’s best-loved pubs.
