    Itinerary:

    Day 1

    From Edinburgh we travel west to collect our Glasgow passengers and then make our first stop at the picturesque conservation village of Luss, on the Bonnie Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond. Travelling north, via Tyndrum, we pass over the atmospheric Rannoch Moor, through Clan Campbell & MacGregor territory, before enjoying time to walk and admire dramatic Glencoe, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. 

    After lunch in a Highland village, we pause for photos at Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, then stop to admire Loch Garry. From the right angle, the Loch is shaped exactly like Scotland! Afterwards, we pass the stunning Five Sisters of Kintain mountain range. Our journey ends in the charming village of Portree, on the Isle of Skye. You will be dropped off at your accommodation for the evening.


    Day 2

    After breakfast, we depart Portree for a full day's touring - options include a visit to Talisker Distillery, Dunvegan Castle, the magical Fairy Glen, a stop to visit Flora MacDonald's grave, and a trip to the unique Black Houses; historic dwellings of the Scottish Highlanders. We continue our journey where we can view Duntulm Castle, take photos of Kilt Rock and perhaps enjoy a walk at the Lealt Falls.

    Our tour ends with the opportunity to admire the Old Man of Storr rock formation before we return to Portree.


    Day 3

    We commence our return journey via the much-admired Eilean Donan Castle; backdrop for several films including the movie 'Highlander'. We then move on to the pretty loch-side village of Fort Augustus for lunch and views of Loch Ness, and perhaps a chance to see its famous monster.

    Our journey south continues over Laggan and the Grampian mountains with our last stop for refreshments in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, before returning to Edinburgh.


    Optional Extras: Talisker Distillery, Dunvegan Castle, Eilean Donan Castle
