Description

Day 1 – Our wide-ranging tour starts by heading west through the beautiful scenery of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to Kilmartin Glen. Here you’ll explore Scotland’s ancient past. With over 5,000 years of history laid out before you, you’ll be able to walk in the footsteps of the first Scots at Dunadd Hill Fort and the Temple Wood Stone Circle. Then it’s on the picturesque seaside town of Oban, home to Scotland’s best seafood! Overnight: Oban

Day 2 – Day two takes you over the Connel Bridge through Appin to the haunting landscape of Glen Coe (scene of the terrible massacre of the MacDonald Clan). We’ll stop in Fort William; a town dominated by Ben Nevis—the UK’s tallest peak, then jump aboard the Jacobite Steam Train. It’s one of the world’s greatest train journeys and will take you over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, made famous by the Harry Potter films. We’ll continue to the end of the line, Mallaig, a pretty fishing port, bustling but remote. You will have the opportunity to have an early dinner and enjoy some excellent seafood before taking a short ferry ride over the sea to Skye, where you’ll spend your second night. Overnight: Skye

Day 3 – You’ll have the whole of the third day to explore Skye’s mysteries and landscape. Here the mountains and beaches beckon, so lose yourself amongst the Cuillin Mountains, visit the black houses, takein the spectacular scenery of the Kilt Rock waterfall, The Old Man of Storr and the Trotternish Peninsula, including a visit to the capital of the island, Portree. Overnight: Skye

Day 4 – We’ll leave Skye and head straight to one of Scotland’s most photographed castle, Eilean Donan* which you’ll have ample time to explore. We’ll continue further north through Glen Carron and past Loch Carron towards Achnasheen. You’ll also experience the dramatic Glen Docherty which looks down towards Loch Maree, once visited by Queen Victoria and home to its very own “Nessie”:Muc-sheilche. Our lunch stop will be at Inverewe Garden*, well-knownfor its sub-tropical plants. You’ll also get to take in the incredible Gruinard Bay and the breath-taking Corrieshalloch Gorge and Rogie Falls, then on to your overnight stop by Loch Ness, where you can do an evening boat cruise*.
Overnight: Fort Augustus

Day 5 – Today you’ll have plenty of time to explore Loch Ness. Why not take a boat tour* over to Urquhart Castle or just monster hunt from the shore? You’ll then head to visit the battlefield of Culloden* the site of the defeat of the Jacobite forces. On your way south enjoy a wee dram at a local distillery*. Then you’ll pass the stunning Cairngorm Mountains and be able to explore the picturesque town of Pitlochry before arriving back in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
