Moors and Mountains
Departing from Edinburgh we make our way to lonely Rannoch Moor and then into Glen Coe, Scotland’s most famous glen and the scene of the terrible massacre in 1692. We will make a stop in the midst of this awe-inspiring scenery so you can enjoy the magic of this special place.
The stay in Inverness is unescorted.
Today we enjoy a full day excursion to the beautiful island of Skye. From Inverness we travel to Achnasheen then on through pretty Glen Carron to Kyle of Lochalsh. Soon we cross “over the sea to Skye” and make our way to Sleat, the Garden of Skye. The gentle scenery that we see in this part of the island contrasts with the rugged beauty of the Cuillin Hills that we will discover later on our tour. The Clan Donald Centre celebrates the history of the Gaels. We will make a stop here so you can discover more about this powerful clan that once boasted the title “Lord of the Isles”. The grounds contain the ruins of Armadale Castle as well as a delightful garden.
The Magical Isle
Later there will be scenic drive where the views of the Cullin Hills are simply breathtaking. If the weather is kind to us we will be able to see Rum, Canna and Eigg in the Small Isles. There will be time for some beach-combing before we return to the mainland.
A real highlight is our stop at Eilean Donan Castle, perched on its island at the head of Loch Duich. Here you have the option of visiting this most picturesque of castles. Our return to Inverness will take us through Glen Shiel where we will see the "Five Sisters" mountain range.
Beauly and the Spey Valley
This morning there is an excursion through the Black Isle to the picturesque village of Cromarty. Later there is free time in Inverness for individual sightseeing or shopping before we join our motorcoach for a spectacular drive south through the Highlands. From the Spey Valley and the Cairngorm Mountains we travel through Glen Garry to enjoy scenic views of picturesque Blair Castle. After a break we’ll make our way through the gentle rolling countryside towards Perth then onwards to Edinburgh.
