Your Tour Itinerary…
We will collect you from your overnight accommodation at 8.30am.
Prepare to travel through the wild, remote, breathtaking Highlands, and every mile is beautiful. Sandy beaches, blue Lochs, Heilan’ Coos, castles, mountains and glens…
Loch Maree – stand at one of Scotland’s most famous viewpoints, taking in the winding road which leads to this famous Loch.
Torridon – As our video below shows, Torridon is famous for its spectacular mountains and Highland vistas…
Shieldag – Enjoy a visit to this picturesque Highland village, nestled on the banks of Loch Shieldag.
Applecross – One of the most beautiful drives through Scotland, including the famous hairpin bends of the Applecross Pass, or by its real name Bealach na Bà – Pass of the Cattle. First opened in 1822, this road is a lifeline to the local community. It has the steepest ascent of any road climb in the UK, and is the third highest road in Scotland.
- This section of the tour is subject to weather conditions. Bealach na Bà will be closed to traffic from April for at least six weeks, possibly into June 2018. So please check with us for availability of this part of the tour.
Eilean Donan Castle – This iconic castle has to be one of the most famous in Scotland. Used as a filming location for many movies: ‘Highlander’, ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’, ‘The Master of Ballantrae’, ‘The New Avengers’, ‘Loch Ness’ and ‘James Bond – The World is Not Enough’… its famous bridge and romantic turrets draw sightseers from all over the world. A visit here is a truly unforgettable experience. There is a £7.50 admission fee if you wish to tour inside the castle. (Closed through January).
One of our favourite viewpoints in Scotland… on our way back to Inverness, we’ll take a short detour to enjoy another breathtaking vista…
Loch Ness… as a finale to this spectacular day, we’ll take you through the Great Glen along Loch Ness on our way back to Inverness…
You’ll arrive back in Inverness at approximately 6.00pm.
