Edinburgh and Beyond Accessible Driving Tour

This full-day Edinburgh and Beyond accessible driving tour is a perfect way to experience some of the most memorable places of Scotland in one single day. While this is an accessible driving tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities for you to get out of your accessible van and experience the sites firsthand, including a visit to Stirling Castle. You won’t just be snapping pictures and admiring sights from your van!

Your accessible Edinburgh driving tour will begin when your guide and driver pick you up at your accessible Edinburgh hotel. From there, your exciting Scottish adventure awaits! On this 8 hour tour, you will enjoy beautiful, unique sightseeing as your professional guide sharing and explaining the significance and history of each site.

On this tour, you will get a close-up view of The Kelpies, 30-meter-high, fascinating horse-head sculptures. They are a monument to the horse-powered heritage across Scotland and are a huge visitor attraction. These incredible sculptures are standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and near the picturesque River Carron. You will also make a stop by the popular Falkirk Wheel, a rotating boat lift in central Scotland, connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. It has to be seen to be believed. You will get very good views and photo-opportunities at the wheel so have your camera ready!

Next on your private accessible Edinburgh driving tour, you will continue with an interior visit to the glorious Stirling Castle which is one of Scotland’s grandest castles, due to its imposing position, it’s dramatic history and it’s impressive architecture. The surrounding Scenery and views will take your breath away. Enjoy lively commentary by your tour guide as you unveil the history and beauty of the site firsthand. Following your visit here, you will have some free time to enjoy a lunch on your own at an accessible restaurant. 

For the second part of your tour, you will have two different options to choose from (note, your choice must be made at the time of booking):

OPTION 1: Continue on with a picturesque drive through the highlands along the banks of Loch Lubnaig, up past Loch Earn, then driving west through Inverarnan and down the west side of the beautiful Loch Lomond. The tour then takes you to Balloch, where you will visit Loch Lomond Shores for tea and nice views of the majestic Loch.

OPTION 2: Continue on with a memorable visit to the famous Scone Palace, a place steeped in history. This was originally the site of an early Christian church and later an Augustinian priory in the 12th century when the Abbot’s palace was constructed. This is one of Scotland’s most popular attractions! Should the Palace be closed on the day of your tour, you will instead experience the popular Black Watch Museum, a five star museum that tells the story of the iconic Black Watch Regiment from 1725. Following this, you will drive through the lovely city of Dundee and over the striking Tay Road Bridge. You will also see the famous “home of golf” and drive by the famous 18th tee and clubhouse. See the splendid St. Andrew’s Cathedral from outside and the University of St. Andrews where Prince William met his wife. 

Your Edinburgh and Beyond accessible tour concludes with a relaxing drive back to Edinburgh.
