    Itinerary

    Day 1
    Through the Trossachs to Oban…


    This wide-ranging tour starts by heading west through the beautiful scenery of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park to Kilmartin Glen. Here you’ll explore Scotland’s ancient past. With over 5,000 years of history laid out before you, you’ll be able to walk in the footsteps of the first Scots at Dunadd Hill Fort and the Temple Wood Stone Circle. Then it’s on to the picturesque seaside town of Oban.
    Overnight  Oban

    Day 2
    A day of high hills and history…

    Day two takes you through the haunting landscape of Glen Coe (scene of the terrible massacre of the MacDonald Clan) past Ben Nevis (Britain’s tallest peak) and on, over the sea, to the magical Isle of Skye.
    Overnight Kyleakin

    Day 3
    A Whole Day to explore Skye...


    You'll have the whole of the third day to explore Skye's mysteries and landscape. Here the mountains and beaches beckon, so lose yourself amongst the spectacular scenery of the Cuillin Mountains, the slanting hills of Quiraing and the incredible Trotternish Peninsula.
    Overnight Kyleakin

    Day 4
    Castles, mountains and on to Loch Ness…


    Once you leave Skye the first stop is a visit to the stunningly beautiful Eilean Donan Castle.* You then drive past the spectacular Torridon Mountains and through the stunning scenery of Glen Affric. Here you can stroll up to a beautiful waterfall, surrounded by ancient Caledonian forest. Then it’s on to your bed, near the fabled shores of Loch Ness.

    Day 5
    Monster hunting, historic battlefields and home...


    Today you’ll have plenty of time to explore Loch Ness. Why not take a boat tour over to Urquhart Castle*, visit the Loch Ness 2000 Exhibition*, or just monster hunt from the shore? You’ll then head south and have the chance to visit the battlefield of Culloden*, the site of the defeat of the Jacobite forces.
