Feast your imagination and fill up your senses on our six day tour of the Scottish Highlands and islands from Edinburgh. Your friendly driver-guide will share their passion for Scotland, presenting our country’s most iconic locations and revealing it

Day 1

After leaving Edinburgh on Monday morning, we call in at Glasgow and then head deep into Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

The lochside village of Luss is our first destination, where tidy cottages decked in rambling roses lead to the water’s edge and a wander along the pier. For a tranquil moment why not visit the 19th century church, beautifully restored with a Scots pine ceiling and Victorian stained-glass windows. Go back in time to the Viking raids of the 13th century with a stroll around the ancient churchyard where a Viking ‘hogback’ grave still stands.

From the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond your luxury mini coach climbs the ‘Arrochar Alps’ to iconic viewpoint the ‘Rest and Be Thankful’. These words, etched in stone, reveal the relief of soldiers who laboured on the original road in 1750.

As your small group weaves along the banks of Loch Fyne, the white outline of Inveraray springs into view. Established in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the powerful Clan Campbell, the town remains as a perfect example of Scottish Georgian architecture. As we stop for lunch you can enjoy its tourist attractions like Inveraray Castle and gardens.

Our next port of call is the vibrant tourist town of Oban, known as ‘The Gateway to the Isles’, where we catch our ferry to the Isle of Mull. We spend the next three nights in Tobermory which is reknowned for the multi-coloured buildings that garland its harbour.

Day 2

Our first full day on Mull begins with a tranquil 10-minute ferry ride to Iona, where St Columba founded the Celtic Christian religion in 563 AD. You can visit Iona Abbey, the small stone building of St Oran’s Chapel and the graveyard Reilig Òdhrain, reputed to be the resting place of 48 ancient Scottish kings including the 11th century king Macbeth.

This small island is easy to navigate by foot. It’s worth a stroll up Torr an Aba, a rocky knoll where St Columba’s writing hut is said to have stood. From Iona’s highest point at Dun I, turquoise waters stretch out to Tiree, Coll and the Treshnish Islands. On a clear day look for the Small Isles of Rhum and Eigg as well as Skye and even the coast of Ireland.

Fingal’s Cave is famous the world over for its bizarre geological shapes and its fantastic acoustics which even inspired Mendelssohn. Its hexagonal rock columns are home to puffins, razorbills, guillemots and gannets. From your perch on top of the island you might spot playful dolphins and porpoises, minke and fin whales or even the rare basking shark.

There’s time to explore Tobermory’s restaurants and traditional Scottish pubs in the evening.

Day 3

The quaint village of Dervaig was laid out in 1799 but nearby standing stones at Kilmore suggest a prehistoric settlement and the remains of a Highland village recall the 18th and 19th century clearances. We’ll stop to admire the wide, white sands of Calgary Bay, one of Scotland’s top beaches.

A landing on the tiny Isle of Ulva offers the chance to walk on untouched shell beaches and breath in the scents of lush woodland. This is a nature-lover’s paradise and you may spot sea eagles, golden eagles and otters. The thatched ‘Sheila’s Cottage’ houses a museum and heritage centre and refreshments are served at the Boathouse café.

Back in Tobermory you might enjoy a trip to the distillery for a dram of single malt whisky.

Day 4

Day four sees us take two short ferry journeys onto the Morvern peninsula and the mainland where your luxury mini coach enters unspoilt Glencoe. Scotland’s most famous glen bore witness to the Glencoe Massacre of 1692 and as you experience its splendid isolation you can almost hear the screams of the MacDonalds as they were slaughtered by the Campbells.

Your small group now meets up with our Skye tour to continue our adventure to Scotland’s most romantic island.

From Fort William on the shores of Loch Linnhe you can choose a one-way trip on the Jacobite Steam Train for the journey to Mallaig. One of the best train journeys on earth, it’s an exciting trip for Harry Potter fans over the Glenfinnan Viaduct which appears in the epic films.

From your carriage be prepared for spectacular views of Glenfinnan and Loch Shiel. This legendary location is where Bonnie Prince Charlie claimed the throne of Great Britain and Ireland for the Stuart kings. Having raised his clansmen to arms, they were decisively defeated at the Battle of Culloden and the Glenfinnan Monument stands proud in their memory today.

As you pass Loch Eilt, Harry Potter fans will recognise its little island as Dumbledore’s final resting place.

We all meet up in Mallaig and catch the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ where we spend the next two nights at Kyleakin.

Please note: Subject to it operating, we take the ferry to the Isle of Skye from Easter to the end of October. Outwith these dates we drive to Glenfinnan to see the viaduct and then drive north to Skye via the Skye Bridge.

Day four sees us take two short ferry journeys onto the Morvern peninsula and the mainland where your luxury mini coach enters unspoilt Glencoe. Scotland’s most famous glen bore witness to the Glencoe Massacre of 1692 and as you experience its splendid isolation you can almost hear the screams of the MacDonalds as they were slaughtered by the Campbells.

Day 6

Bidding farewell to Skye, we continue our travels by road over the controversial Skye Bridge to one of Scotland’s most filmed and photographed castles Eilean Donan. The fortress stars in films such as James Bond epic The World is Not Enough, Highlander and Loch Ness.

We’ll take a route less travelled to reach Glenelg viewpoint for panoramic views of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range and Loch Duich. Our next body of water is Scotland’s most inexplicable, Loch Ness, home to Nessie our rarely-sighted Loch Ness monster. We stop for lunch in Fort Augustus, by the side of the Caledonian Canal and its intriguing locks. For Nessie-hunters there’s an optional loch cruise.

Firmly on dry land again, we drive through the Cairngorms National Park and the rolling green countryside made famous in TV show ‘Monarch of the Glen’. There’s a dram of whisky and some chocolate tasting waiting for us at Dalwhinnie Distillery before we head to Pitlochry for our final stop of the tour.

On the way, the white turrets of Blair Castle to your left are the ancient seat of the Dukes of Atholl and home to the last remaining private army of Europe, the Atholl Highlanders.

Returning to Glasgow via Edinburgh, there are engineering wonders of the last 130 years to behold. As we drive over the Queensferry Crossing, opened in August 2017, the gigantic red cantilevers of the Forth Bridge can be seen rising out of the Firth of Forth. This UNESCO world heritage site is listed alongside the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.
