Your Tour Itinerary…

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 – 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. Please note: This section of the tour is subject to weather conditions.
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).
