Some Places We Will Visit

  • Killin

    Killin is a picturesque village lying in the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the ancient district of Breadalbane.

  • Fort William

    Fort William is the gateway to the Western Highlands and one of the country's main tourist centres. It stands at the head of Loch Linnhe, with the snow-topped mass of Ben Nevis towering behind.

  • Loch Ness

    Loch Ness is world famous for the wrong reasons: the mythical watery monster than has been subject to repeated scientific investigations without success. Its fame ignores the real attractions of this huge lake framed by mountains and castles that cuts the highlands in two. 

  • Pitlochry

    Small Highland tour that is a frequent stopping place for coaches travelling along the A9. Somewhat a one road town of shops and cafes.
