Itinerary

Day 1Glasgow - Glencoe - Eilean Donan Castle - Broadford

  • Admire the mountainous splendour of the Five Sisters of Kintail
  • Take an epic photo of the gorgeous Eilean Donan Castle

Departing Glasgow you travel north, crossing the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland. We travel into the majestic Highlands where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically – the flat fertile plains of the Lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens.

Next, we venture north through the splendid scenery of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park up to the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor.

You continue through the spectacular mountain pass of Glencoe, scene of the great massacre of the Clan Macdonald in 1692. And after lunch we pass Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and head into the Great Glen. Travelling west you head past the Five Sisters of Kintail.

You then stop to visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most photographed castles. Crossing over the bridge to Skye, you follow the dramatic coastline, towards Broadford. And after all this breath-taking beauty, you’re dropped off at your accommodation in the early evening with enough time to go out and explore the village.

Day 2Broadford - Old Man of Storr - Quiraing - Broadford

  • Stand at the most southerly point of Scotland at the unspoiled Mull of Galloway
  • Reconnect with untouched nature at the Galloway Forest Park

Your driver-guide picks you up in the morning and you head to the Rhins of Galloway. This wild peninsula offers splendid sea views, wonderful wildlife and boasts Scotland’s southernmost point, Mull of Galloway. Enjoy a walk along dramatic cliffs, admire the beautiful lighthouse and keep your eyes peeled for porpoises and sea birds.

Then, you ramble up the unspoiled coast to the Port Logan Fishpond. This quirky place started as a fish larder for the local laird and today acts as a natural ‘aquarium’ full of diverse sea fish.

All this sea air must have whetted your appetite, so you head to the pretty village of Portpatrick for lunch.

Next, you travel to the Galloway Forest Park; a region full of ancient woodlands and mountain vistas, which is also part of the Galloway & Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere. Soak up the tranquil loch views and breathe in the crisp air as you explore this untouched wilderness.

From here, you start your return journey to Glasgow and arrive back to the city in the evening. (B)

Day 3Broadford - Cuillin Hills - Five Sisters of Kintail - Loch Ness - Glasgow

  • Will you find the Loch Ness Monster?
  • Journey through the pine-clad region of Perthshire

You travel south through the Cuillin Hills and back over to the mainland for stunning views over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail.

You visit Loch Ness for lunch… but will you spot ‘Nessie’? Heading south through the Grampian mountains along Loch Laggan, famous now as “Monarch of the Glen Country” before passing Dalwhinnie and onwards past Blair Castle, stopping for refreshments before heading back to Glasgow.
