5 Day Highland Romp - Departing from Edinburgh

Departs on Tuesdays, returning on Saturdays

Five unforgettable days - and the best value introduction to Scotland's unique scenery, history and culture. The tour leaves from Edinburgh and spends the first two nights on the enchanting and magnificent Isle of Skye and the following two nights in the 'Capital of the Highlands' - Inverness.
Day One

Out on tour Day One: Lochs & Castles: Leaving Edinburgh, we cross the medieval battlefields of Bannockburn and Stirling bridge.



Then north into the breathtaking Highlands, to the territory that was once Rob Roy MacGregor's, stopping at his grave. Down to the shores of Loch Lomond and then across the Rannoch Moor into the unforgettable Glen Coe. Up the west coast to Fort William, through Glen Shiel, stopping at Eilean Donan Castle, before heading over the sea to Skye.

Day Two

Isle of Skye: Steeped in a rich and turbulent history, full of romance and rebellion, the ancient Isle of Skye isn't a place, its an intoxication. Our tour of the island takes you through the overpowering beauty of the Cuillin Mountains, the Quiraing, the Old Man of Storr and the enchanted Faerie Glen. An experience of life affirming proportions is guaranteed.



Day Three

The Northern Wilds: Leaving Skye, we head further north up the west coast.

Through the village of Plockton, into the spectacular wilds of Wester Ross and Torridon. Before heading down into the Black Isle, MacBeth country, and the 'Capital of the Highlands' - Inverness.

Day Four

Monster Spotting: We take a whole day to explore and enjoy the dark and mysterious Loch Ness. Into Fort Augustus and then on to Glen Affric and the last remnants of the ancient, great Forest of Caledon. An optional extra on this day of the tour is an afternoon spent at the Great Glen Water Park, giving you the chance to do a whole range of activities - anything from white water rafting to mountain biking.

Day Five

We head southwards through the Grampian Mountains: Visiting Culloden Battlefield, the 5,000 year old Clava Cairns, over the Drumochter Pass, past the old ruined fort at Ruthven and to the ancient cathedral town of Dunkeld (Fort of the Celts), then arriving back in Edinburgh at the end of the day.

Tours may alter from this itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances such as road works, alternating weather conditions, etc.
