Highlights on this tour include a scenic rail journey from Glasgow to Fort William on the Jacobite steam train, a cruise on Loch Ness and visits to the castles of Duart, Eilean Donan and Urquhart. We also visit Tobermory and cruise on Loch Linnhe.

The Highlands and Islands of Scotland provide such a wealth of scenic journeys that it can be a daunting prospect to work out how best to take them all in. This tour aims to provide the answer to this Caledonian conundrum with an itinerary that ticks off a whole host of visual gems while at the same time providing a series of relaxing, undemanding journeys by train, coach and boat. Our tour begins with one of the most visually stunning rail journeys in Scotland, the West Highland Line to Fort William, with views of Loch Lomond and the wild, open expanse of Rannoch Moor. This is followed by an excursion to the Isle of Mull, with three different ferry crossings involved. We then enjoy a cruise on Loch Linnhe, a drive through the haunting glacial valley of Glen Coe and a round trip on the Jacobite steam train, over the final section of the West Highland Line. Heading north to Inverness, we enjoy possibly the most scenic of all the Scottish railway routes to Kyle of Lochalsh and a visit to iconic Eilean Donan Castle. Finally we take the funicular railway (subject to it re-opening) to the top of the magnificent Cairngorms and then it’s ‘downhill all the way’ as we ride the Highland Railway from Aviemore to Glasgow. Please note this tour begins and ends in Glasgow. Departure time will be approximately 12.30 and return time will be approximately 16.30. The tour includes all local travel, accommodation throughout, six breakfasts and six dinners.
