On this 4-day small-group tour, you will learn about epic battles, the majesty of Glencoe and fall in love with quaint harbour towns.  See the pristine Inveraray castle on the shores of Loch Fyne and look down a cascading valley at the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ viewpoint and all in the company of no more than 16 fellow participants. 

Day 1: Depart Edinburgh

This morning you'll join your fellow travellers and leave Edinburgh to travel past Stirling Castle to the small bustling town of Callander. From here, your tour continues through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park and bristling terrain of the Trossachs, before reaching the wide and remote expanse of Rannoch Moor. Your drive north brings you to Glencoe, scene of the infamous massacre of Clan MacDonald in 1692 and, after a short ferry ride across Loch Linnhe, you'll meander through the impressive mountains of Morven to Lochaline, where we take another ferry to the Hebridean island of Mull to arrive in Tobermory, the island’s capital, for our three-night stay. Tobermory, meaning ‘Well of Mary’, has brightly coloured houses looking over the sea and is often referred to as one of the prettiest harbour towns in Scotland.

Day 2: Iona

Today's tour sees you heading south to Fionnphort, where you take a passenger ferry to the small island of Iona, an island of quiet charm and also the cradle of Celtic Christianity. You'll have time to explore the island’s Abbey and museum of history and Celtic heritage. There are magnificent Celtic crosses and headstones to see, or, alternatively, you can enjoy a stroll along the peaceful sandy beaches. In the afternoon, you'll have the opportunity to take a small boat (optional) to the island of Staffa, where nature enthusiasts can seek out abundant marine life. Staffa is home to Fingal’s Cave, which is one of the most amazing geological sites, and is known as ‘Nature’s cathedral’. After a day in the great outdoors, we return to Tobermory for the night. (B)

Day 3: Mull

Today's drive takes you to the remote areas of Mull island and visits the pretty settlement of Dervaig. From here, you'll venture to the wild thrashing sandy shores of Calgary Bay and, if you’re lucky, you may see the huge white-tailed eagles, which live in this area. An early afternoon return to Tobermory, allows you to soak up the atmosphere of this pretty town and to give you the chance to peruse the small shops and perhaps the local Tobermory whisky distillery. (B)

Day 4 Inveraray | Edinburgh

Departing Tobermory, we head south to Craignure for a short crossing to Oban, Argyll's largest town. Continuing west, you'll arrive in the whitewashed 18th Century town of Inveraray, located on the shores of Loch Fyne. Inveraray Castle is a mixture of Scots Baronial and Neo-Gothic architecture and is the seat of Clan Campbell. After leaving the town, you arrive in the National Park of Loch Lomond and travel up more than 800 feet to the ‘Rest and be Thankful’ view. You continue to drive east towards Stirling, with opportunities for photos of the castle, before we return to Edinburgh in the early evening. (B)
