Travelling north out of Edinburgh, you head into the Central Highlands and make a stop in the historic village of Dunkeld, where you can visit the ruins of the Old Cathedral. Take a walk alongside the Braan River through the forests of the Hermitage. Continuing north, the route passes through the Grampian and Monadhliath Mountains, as we head west for a view of Britain's highest mountain Ben Nevis. Travelling through the splendours of Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel, you cross over the bridge to Skye and head for the island's capital Portree, our base for the next two nights. You will be dropped at your accommodation and are then free to explore the town.
Today is all about Skye. North of Portree is the Trotternish ridge with its spectacular cliffs and rock formations, such as the famous Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the Quiraing, the weather often adding to the atmosphere of this amazing natural scenery. Further west the scenery changes as you might venture towards the 13th century home of the Clan Macleod, Dunvegan Castle, the emerald green valley of Glendale and the dramatic sea-cliffs of Neist Point. Here on the most westerly point on the island, you might be lucky enough to spot some whales or basking sharks. You return to Portree for the evening.
Today you turn your attention to the south of the island. Spend time heading down to Elgol for seascapes and views of the Cuillin, or Talisker and its beautiful Bay or indeed Glenbrittle and its famed waterfall before driving down the Sleat peninsula to Armadale. You will take the ferry over to Mallaig, a busy little harbour on Scotland's west coast. From here it is another breath-taking drive, passing the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct as you head to Fort William, where you will stay for the night.
Returning to Edinburgh today, you will drive along the shore of Loch Linnhe and then take in the majestic and atmospheric Glencoe and cross the wild and remote Rannoch Moor. Following rivers, lochs and forests you will find yourselves back in the Lowlands of Scotland as you pass both Doune and Stirling Castles with maybe time for a final photo stop before reaching Edinburgh at approx 18.30.
