Take the “Road to the Isles” on this short small-coach tour exploring Scotland's moors, glens & bens!

Day 1: The Road to the Isles

Departing the City of Glasgow we travel north, crossing the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland, and into the majestic Highlands where the scenery changes quickly and dramatically - the flat fertile plains of the Lowlands give way to shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens. It’s easy to forget that this was once thought of as a dangerous frontier fought over by the fiercely territorial Highland clans such as the MacGregors, made famous by the Highland folk hero, Rob Roy MacGregor. Next, we venture north through the splendid scenery of Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park up to the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor, and then continue through the spectacular mountain pass of Glencoe, the scene of the great massacre of the Clan Macdonald in 1692. After lunch, we pass Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis. On the “Road to the Isles” now through the splendour of the Five Sisters of Kintail, the mountains guarding the pass on the way to the Isle of Skye. We then stop to visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most photographed castles and used in the film “Highlander”. Crossing over the bridge to Skye, we follow the dramatic coastline, towards the island’s capital, Portree. And after all this breathtaking beauty, you’re dropped off at your accommodation in the early evening with enough time to go out and explore the town. 

Day 2: Isle of Skye

A very flexible day on Skye. There are many possibilities depending on the weather and your driver/guide’s knowledge will come to the fore in developing the best day out. You could travel north to explore the Trotternish peninsula with its stunning Quiraing mountain pass and some of Skye’s extraordinary geological scenery, including Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. Kilt Rock is composed of basalt columns (reminiscent of the pleats in a kilt) with a waterfall cascading over the cliffs and down into the sea below. There will be a short break for lunch before continuing to enjoy this most dramatic of islands. Or your guide may take you back in time and teach you about the legends and clan culture surrounding the 13th-century home of the Clan MacLeod, Dunvegan Castle. Return to Portree in the early evening. (B)

Day 3: Loch Ness

This morning you will be collected from your accommodation and travel south through the Cuillin Hills and back over to the mainland for stunning views over Loch Duich and the 5 Sisters of Kintail. Onto Loch Ness where you'll have time for lunch and the possibility of spotting “Nessie” with an optional Loch Ness boat cruise (weather permitting)! In the afternoon we head south through the Grampian mountains along Loch Laggan, famous now as “Monarch of the Glen Country”, then continue past Dalwhinnie, home to Scotland’s highest whisky Distillery, and onward past Blair Castle, stopping for refreshments before heading back to Glasgow, arriving at approximately 7:30 pm.
