    Tour Itinerary:
    Day One:
    Leaving Edinburgh, past stunning views of the Forth Bridge, we enter the Highlands through Perthshire, a land of forests, rivers and mountains. We visit the quaint village of Dunkeld with its historic cathedral sitting on the banks of the River Tay. It’s then further north into the Highlands before we enter the Great Glen. At Fort Augustus, there is time to explore the shores of Loch Ness and a chance to spot Nessie. The journey continues to the famous Isle of Skye and we get to view Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most famous icons. Our home for the night is the Isle of Skye, the ‘winged isle’. (Overnight: Isle of Skye)

    Day Two:
    You will spend the day exploring the dramatic Isle of Skye with its amazing scenery, myths and legends. Hear tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie’s escape against the backdrop of the jagged Cuillin Mountains. Highlights include the Quiraing with its spectacular cliffs, the mysterious rock formation of the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock with its cascading waterfall and Dunvegan with its historic castle. (Overnight: Isle of Skye)
    Day Three:
    We explore the Castle and Gardens of Clan Donald Skye, before taking the ferry to the west coast fishing village of Mallaig. Then we travel along the Road to the Isles and see the Glenfinnan Viaduct where a monument to Bonnie Prince Charlie’s campaign now stands. We head south through the dramatic scenery of Glencoe, wild Rannoch Moor then the heart of Rob Roy country before arriving back in Edinburgh at approx 8.30pm.
