Itinerary

Day 1Edinburgh - Fort William

You leave Edinburgh and travel north west. On this route, you see one of Scotland’s most amazing modern marvels, The Kelpies. These massive steel horse heads are fantastic to photograph and intriguingly engineered.

Your guide will keep you entertained and let you have the chance to see an ancient Scottish castle.

For lunch, you refuel with some local food in either of the small towns of Killin or Callander.

After ambling along and enjoying beautiful views of rivers, lochs, and forests, you cross the wild and remote Rannoch Moor. This is a favourite location for photographers and nature lovers, so make sure you’ve charged your camera. You then head to the majestic and historic Glencoe. Here, you can learn about one of the most tragic tales in Scottish history.

We then drive along the shore of Loch Linnhe before reaching our base for the night in Fort William.

Day 2Fort William - Plockton

You go on a breath-taking drive from Fort William and pass the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct. This is one of the most beautiful railway bends in Britain and featured in the Harry Potter movies. There’s also an iconic monument that commemorates the Jacobites who fought for Scottish independence.

After arriving in Mallaig, you take the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’ to the southern area of the island.*

Your afternoon will be spent exploring the incredible landscapes of the Sleat Peninsula. Your guide may take you to the famed waterfalls of Glenbrittle or to the Cuillin Mountains in Elgol, where you can revel in the stunning views.

After all these sublime sights, you head to your overnight base in the Lochalsh and Skye area.** (B)

In the late afternoon, you return to your overnight base. (B)
