Day 1
Edinburgh - Loch Lomond - Oban

Take you past Stirling Castle north and then west to Loch Lomond, Scotland’s first national park, and the bonny banks. You will travel through the impressive West Highlands mountains through Inveraray’s magnificent white-washed 18th-century town, home to the Campbell Clan and Argyll’s Duke. The afternoon will be spent in the heart of Argyll exploring the area near the ancient Kingdom of Dalriada before arriving for your 2 night stay in the busy town of Oban, the gateway to the islands.

Day 2
Oban - Iona - Staffa - Mull - Oban

Is an early start crossing the ferry to Mull and enjoying an island adventure exploring its dramatic coastlines and wild beauty, before taking the small ferry to the peace and tranquility of Iona-birthplace of Celtic Christianity and ancient burial ground of Scottish Kings. You can visit the historic abbey in the churchyard with its intricate carved crosses or explore this island gem’s rocky headlands and sandy coves. There is also a chance to take a small boat to Staffa Island (except for Saturday departures in September) and see the dramatic basalt columns immortalized by Mendelssohn in his “Fingal’s Cave” Hebridean Overture. You then return on the ferry to Oban for your second night.

Day 3
Oban - Castle Stalker - Plockton

Take you north along the west coast around Appin, past the impregnable Stalker Castle, and Glencoe, the scene of the 1692 Clan Macdonald’s infamous massacre. You then pass through the nestling of Fort William in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles at 1344 meters. We continue a natural fault in the earth’s crust running through Scotland and on through Ireland through the Great Glen. From here you go north to Plockton’s picturesque fishing village. At your accommodation, you’re dropped off at around 7:00pm.

Day 4
Plockton - Dunvegan Castle - Neist Point - Plockton

Flexible day on Skye. Depending on the weather, there are many possibilities and your driver / guide will use his / her local knowledge to determine the group’s best day out. For example: heading west to Clan Macleod’s home in the 13th century-Dunvegan Castle, Glendale’s emerald green valley or Neist

Point’s dramatic sea-cliffs and lonely lighthouse. The tour may focus on the south of the island in the afternoon. For seascapes and views of the Cuillin or Talisker and its beautiful bay or even Glenbrittle and its famous waterfalls, spend time heading down to Elgol. In the late afternoon we will bring you back to your accommodation in Plockton to enjoy a free evening in the village.

Day 5
Plockton - Loch Ness - Edinburgh

You will be collected from your accommodation and east travel where you will enjoy the amazing views of Loch Duich and Kintail’s 5 Sisters. Continue for lunch to Loch Ness and you can spot Nessie. Heading south now across the Grampian Mountains along Loch Laggan, made famous as the Glen Country Monarch before passing Dalwhinnie, home to Scotland’s highest whisky distillery, and heading back to Highland Perthshire before heading back over the Forth Road Bridge to Edinburgh. Arriving around 7:00pm at 6 Waterloo Place.
