Day Trip: Glasgow to Stirling (and Beyond)

Wondering about the practicality, and possibly some advise, on doing a day trip from Glasgow to Stirling, by train (or bus) to visit the Castle and Wallace Monument, and also trying to squeeze in a side trip to visit the Doune Castle and a sampling stop at the Deanston Distillery.
Is a trip like this doable in the course of a day without being too rushed? Also, is transportation readily available from the Stirling train station out to the distillery, Doune Castle and back?
Thanks in advance.

    As far as I am aware, there are no trains to Doune from Stirling, in fact I don't think that Doune has a train station. Besides, Stirling Castle and Wallace Monument are together a full day. Stirling castle is huge and is full of information. It is certainly do-able if you are not interested in the History of both sites and do not wish to read anything and just run round the castle.
    Instead of Doune Castle what about visiting Bannock Burn in Stirling, that is amazing experience.
    Best regards
