Highland bus tour with Stirling Castle?

Hello - I'm planning a solo trip to Scotland and England in early September, 2021. I'd like to do a 2-day bus tour of the highlands, but I'm not seeing any that include Stirling Castle. The castle seems to only be included in day trips. Anyone know of a 2-day trip that includes Stirling castle?

Dan, it is quite easy to access Stirling Castle by public transport. That may be why you don't see a great number of tours. It is a walk uphill from the train station or a short taxi ride. (we rode up, walked down). Stirling Castle has guides that bring groups through the castle and you just show up at the meeting point at the correct time (at least pre-covid). I much preferred it to the castle in Edinburgh.

Another interesting place nearby is the Falkirk Wheel.
