Sunday 26th August from 14.00 to 18.00: Stirling Castle and Scotland’s Iconic Kelpies

Stirling Castle sits upon volcanic rock above the river Forth at the meeting points between the Lowlands and Highlands. A powerful stronghold, royal residence and the childhood home of Mary Queen of Scots.  It is one of Scotland’s must-see visitor attractions.

A coach will take you directly to the castle with your own guide to give you all the inside information.  Don’t forget your camera!

On the return journey you will detour to visit one of Scotland’s newest attractions, the majestic Kelpies, the largest equine sculptures in the world. You can wander around and if you want have a coffee or tea in one of the cafes in the Helix park where the Kelpies live.

What is a Kelpie?  It is a shape-changing aquatic spirit, sometimes malevolent, said to haunt rivers or streams, usually in the shape of a horse.

The cost for this trip is £45 based on a minimum of 25 participants. Maximum 40 places
