Tour Description

Day 1

Small Group Tour *16 Passengers Maximum*

Mountains, massacres and monsters...

This spectacular Highlands and Islands tour starts by heading west through the beautiful scenery of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The route then takes you through the haunting landscape of Glen Coe (scene of the terrible massacre of the MacDonald Clan) and on through Fort William and the great Glen to arrive at the fabled shores of Loch Ness, where you can do an evening boat cruise*.

Overnight:  Loch Ness

Day 2

North to Lewis and Harris...

Day two takes you further north, first to Inverness to meet the rest of your group, the capital of the Highlands, then to Dunrobin Castle* the most northerly of Scotland's great houses and home of the Earls and Dukes of Sutherland.  Here you can also enjoy a falconry display (when available) and a walk in its beautiful gardens.  

Then you will discover Knockan Crag Nature National Reserve and learn about one of the oldest landscapes in Europe. Your journey through the Sutherland area will then take you on to the beautiful seaside town of Ullapool, where you catch the ferry to the Isle of Lewis and Harris. 

Overnight:  Stornoway

Day 3

Ancient history and traditional tweed...

Stornoway is the largest settlement in the Western Isles and your base for exploring the Isle of Lewis and Harris. On your first day on the  island you will visit Arnol Black Houses, a traditional tweed weaver to find out more about Harris Tweed cloth. You'll then be able to explore Carloway Broch, an exceptionally well-preserved Iron Age structure located above Loch  an Duin. The day also features visits to the ancient Callanish Standing Stones, one of the most iconic places on the island where we'll enjoy lunch. 

In the afternoon you can stroll along what is arguably Harris' most beautiful beach, Lusekentyre, we'll then continue down to the most southerly point of the island and Rodel Church, the ancient burial ground of the MacLeod family. Then it's time for an exciting trip around the Golden Road before returning to Stornoway.


Overnight: Stornoway

Day 4

Castaways and coastal splendour...

On your second day on the island, you'll head to the far north of the island to visit the Butt of Lewis lighthouse (the windiest place in the UK) before returning to Stornoway for lunch and to wave goodbye to the island and take the ferry back to the mainland.

Overnight: Inverness

Day 5

Historic battlefields and home...

As you head home from Inverness, you'll be able to visit the battlefield of Culloden, the site of the defeat of the Jacobite forces.  Enjoy a wee dram at a local distillery*.  You'll also pass the stunning Cairngorm mountains and explore the picturesque town of Pitlochry.
