DAY ONE

We depart from your home with our exclusive door to door pick-up service, join your coach and journey north to Scotland with refreshment stops enroute.  Arrive at your hotel late afternoon, time to relax before dinner.

 

DAY TWO

Our excursion today takes us on one of the most scenic journeys in the UK along the Great Glen to Fort Augustus at the head of Loch Ness. We follow the eastern shoreline to Inverness with superb views down to the waters-edge, free time in the Highland capital before returning down the west side of Loch Ness, stopping at the Clansman Marina for a cruise, disembarking at Urquhart Castle where many sightings of Nessie have been seen. 

 

DAY THREE

After a leisurely breakfast we travel into Fort William with free time before our afternoon excursion exploring the local area.  Neptune’s Staircase – a series of lock gates rising 62 feet from the loch to the Caledonian Canal.  Next, the Commando Monument standing proud as it overlooks the Great Glen where Commandos rigorously trained during WW2. 

 

DAY FOUR

The highlight of your holiday beckons, as we board the train for a fantastic railway journey on the West Highland line to Mallaig, reported to be one of the best rail journeys in Europe through Highland glens and over the 21 arched Glenfinnan Viaduct.  In Mallaig your coach awaits you to join the ferry ‘Over the Sea to Skye’.  Admission to the 20,000 acre Armadale Castle Highland Estate & Museum is included, discover 1,500 years of history, explore the stunning island views and romantic castle ruins and find out about the turbulent and often violent history of the clans.  Later we take our ferry back to Mallaig, stopping at Bonnie Prince Charlie’s monument at Loch Shiel, enjoy wall to wall scenery as we make our way back to our hotel.

 

DAY FIVE

This morning we bid a sad farewell to Scotland and begin our journey home with refreshment stops enroute.
