The route can be enjoyed in both a clockwise and anti-clockwise direction - it's up to you! A suggested itinerary might look something like this:
Day One – Inverness to Torridon
Meet your chauffeur and depart in the morning along one of the most scenic parts of Scotland. Your route includes Loch Ness and the famous Bealach na Bà - with its series of hairpin bends and situated over 2,000 feet above sea level - the views are absolutely stunning. Continue through Applecross and arrive at your hotel in Torridon.
Day Two – Northwards to Lochinver
Leaving Torridon, continue along the spectacular route, through beautiful villages, along the lochs, whilst surrounded by magnificent mountains.
Day Three – Continue North to Durness

Day Four – Heading East to Caithness
Your tour continues along Scotland’s far North-eastern corner and along the North coast towards Thurso. This part of the route is rich in archaeological remnants of a bygone age. The geological features of
the Caithness coastline feature soaring sea stacks, raucous colonies of sea birds, and vertically faced headlands jutting out into the wild waters of the Pentland Firth.
