Wonderful scenery unfolds today, with high mountain tops and sweeping terrain as far as the eye can see. We make a stop in Fort William, one of the major resorts of the Highlands, set on the shore of Loch Linnhe and in the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis. We then head north passing the impressive 13th century Eilean Donan Castle, the second most photographed castle in Scotland. The iconic castle is situated on its own little island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, overlooking the Isle of Skye. We continue to our overnight hotel on or near the Isle of Skye.
Enjoy a magnificent drive across Skye to catch the morning sailing to North Uist, located in the centre of a group of islands known as the Outer Hebrides. In the afternoon, we enjoy a scenic coastal tour of the Uists, passing numerous tiny lochs and sandy beaches, before checking into the Dark Island Hotel for an overnight stay. Located in the heart of the Hebrides on Benbecula Island, the hotel is ideally placed for our visit to the Isle of Harris.
We head north for the sailing to the largest of the Hebridean Islands, Harris, a rugged landscape of moorland, deep-sea lochs and mountains. On the west coast are some of the most spectacular beaches in Britain, whilst the east of the island has a more rugged terrain. We travel to the north end of Lewis and to the capital Stornoway where we stay for two nights.
Full-day tour of Lewis with an experienced island guide. We see the impressive 5,000 year-old standing stones of Callanish (Scotland’s Stonehenge); ancient thatched 'black houses', typical of crofting settlements, with entrance included; the imposing Carloway Broch, a fortified tower dating back over 2,000 years; and finish with a visit to a tweed mill, where we learn about the history of the famous Harris Tweed.
Depart on the morning sailing to Ullapool and head to Inverness, the 'Capital of the Highlands'. Spend free time exploring the city with its historic buildings, Victorian market and imposing castle, which enjoys a beautiful cliff-top setting above the banks of the River Ness. We then continue our journey south, through picturesque Spey Valley and into Perthshire for our overnight stay.
To Edinburgh where you can enjoy time at leisure. Take a stroll around this bustling and vibrant city, steeped in history, and home to winding alleyways and stylish boutiques, the colourful Grassmarket area and the ancient Royal Mile. We then continue to our overnight hotel near Glasgow airport.
We believe that our holidays may not be suitable for children under 8 years old (except for Disneyland Paris bookings) however, we will
consider individual requests on application. Customers aged 18 and under at the time of travel must be accompanied by an adult, parent or
guardian aged over 18 years old.
You will stay for one-night at the 2-star Kings Arms hotel in Skye, one-night at the 3-star Dark Island hotel in Benbecula, two-nights at the 2-star Caladh Inn in Stornoway and the 3-star Royal Hotel in Dunkeld. Overnight stays will be in the Glasgow area.
We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not
generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
We will of course endeavour to arrange for a vegetarian meal at the hotel. We do however suggest that you advise us of your dietary requests
at the time of booking and recommend that you speak to the receptionist on arrival with regard to your request.
