Itinerary

DAY 1: Arrive into Edinburgh and overnight.

DAY 2: Edinburgh to Portree

Leaving the capital in the morning, we travel past the stunning Stirling Castle sitting dramatically atop a steep rock. We travel through the wild landscapes of Rannoch Moor before stopping at one of Scotland's most iconic landmarks, Glen Coe. Continuing to Fort William, we get the chance to embark on a magical 2-hour ride on the Jacobite Steam Train*. Our afternoon continues with a scenic ferry ride* from Mallaig to the famous Isle of Skye, where we arrive at the capital town of Portree with its colourful harbour. (Overnight: Portree)

DAY 2: Isle of Skye

We spend the day exploring the dramatic Isle of Skye with its amazing scenery, myths and legends. Hear tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie's escape from the mainland against the backdrop of the jagged Cuillin Mountains. Highlights include the mysterious rock formation of the Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock with its cascading waterfall. In the afternoon you have time to explore Dunvegan Castle*, stronghold and ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for the past 800 years. (Overnight: Portree)

DAY 3: Portree to Edinburgh

We bid farewell to the Isle of Skye as we depart the island via the Skye Bridge. On our way east, castle enthusiasts will fall in love with Eilean Donan Castle, arguably one of Scotland's most romantic photo spots. Our journey leads us to the Dundreggan Rewilding Centre, nestled within the heart of the Highlands. Here, we delve into the admirable work of Trees for Life, a charity committed to the revival of Scotland's ancient Caledonian Pine Forest. It's time to go monster spotting! Our destination is Loch Ness, where we take a break and attempt to catch a glimpse of the legendary Nessie while enjoying the shores of Fort Augustus. Next, we make a stop at the Commando Memorial, offering stunning views of Ben Nevis, the tallest peak in Britain. Heading further north, we explore the charming village of Dunkeld and its historic cathedral on the banks of the River Tay.

As we journey back to Edinburgh, we're treated to one final awe-inspiring sight: the historic Forth Rail Bridge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We arrive in the capital in the early evening. Overnight in Edinburgh.
