Coach Trips: The Trossachs
Student Tours Scotland thinks that the Trossachs and Breadalbane are two of the nicest parts of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. We take you to Killin and it's beautiful setting to see the Falls of Dochart rush by. You can enjoy the tranquility of Loch Tay at it's only sandy beach before roaming around the village itself. After lunch in the pretty little town of Callander we'll take you to the magical Bracklinn Falls behind the town - a waterfall that is in a great setting of woodland. Student Tours Scotland will provide stories and tales as we go.

Student Tours Scotland absolutely love Killin. It is a small village with two big secrets: the Falls of Dochart rush through the village as you enter and Loch Tay is home to a small sandy beach nearby. We'll take you to the beach area and a walk around the edges of Loch Tay before heading back into the village over some old railways lines - closed since the 1960's. The falls themselves will distract your attention for a good while so we'll stop here for longer than just a coffee break.
Callander is another fantastic wee village in Scotland. It's another favourite of Student Tours Scotland. We'll break here for lunch and take in a river walk as well as some sights in the village. Afterwards Student Tours Scotland will take you on a woodland walk up through the hill to Bracklinn Falls - a grand waterfall. This is another place you need to bring your camera!
The golden rule with every Student Tours Scotland trip is to have fun. No exceptions. To do this you will need to take some information into account. Remember that Scotland has ‘interesting’ weather. It can be beautifully sunny one minute and then raining the next. It can be cold in the morning but warm in the afternoon. Every day is different. You need to be prepared. Always dress for the rain and the cold. Wear good shoes or at least a pair you are comfortable in. You can always leave things on the coach if the weather allows.
Remember your camera. The scenery in Scotland is among the most beautiful in the world. You won’t want to miss out on those precious memories.
If you have a smartphone or device with internet access remember to bring it with you. There will be social media competitions along the way.
Most importantly stay safe. Listen to your guide. You are responsible for keeping yourself safe when out and about. If you follow the advice and signs then you will be sure to have fun.
