Day 1 - We Journey North
Departing Glasgow, we make our first stop at the picturesque conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny, Bonny Banks’ of Loch Lomond.
Travelling north via Tyndrum we pass over the desolate Rannoch Moor before enjoying time to walk and admire the dramatic Glencoe valley, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan.
After lunch in the Fort William area, (weather permitting) we stop for photos at Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, then we can admire Glen Garry and the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range.
Our journey takes us to the charming village of Portree, on the Island of Skye, where we check into our accommodation.
After breakfast we depart Portree for a full day’s touring – options can include a visit to Talisker distillery* and Dunvegan Castle*, or a trip to Uig and a stop to visit Flora MacDonald’s grave and the unique Black Houses.
We continue our journey where we can view Duntulum Castle, take photos of Kilt Rock and perhaps enjoy a walk at the Lealt Falls. Our tour ends with the opportunity to admire the Old Man of Storr, before we return to Portree.
We commence our descent via the much-admired Eilean Donan Castle*, backdrop for the movie, ‘Highlander’ and 'Made of Honour'; (interior closed in winter) then move on to the pretty lochside village of Fort Augustus for lunch and views of Loch Ness.
Our journey south continues over Laggan and the Grampian mountains with our last stop in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, before returning to Edinburgh, where the tour terminates. If continuing to Glasgow, your guide will take you to Waverley Station for the 50-minute journey by train, courtesy of us.
