These massive steel horse heads are fantastic to photograph and intriguingly engineered. Your guide will keep you entertained and let you have the chance to see an ancient Scottish castle. For lunch, you refuel with some local food in either of the small towns of Killin or Callander. After ambling along and enjoying beautiful views of rivers, lochs, and forests, you cross the wild and remote Rannoch Moor. This is a favorite location for photographers and nature lovers, so make sure you’ve charged your camera. You then head to the majestic and historic Glencoe. Here, you can learn about one of the most tragic tales in Scottish history. We then drive along the shore of Loch Linnhe before reaching our base for the night in Fort William.

Day 03: Touring

You go on a breath-taking drive from Fort William and pass the famous Glenfinnan Viaduct. This is one of the most beautiful railway bends in Britain and featured in the Harry Potter movies. There’s also an iconic monument that commemorates the Jacobites who fought for Scottish independence. After arriving in Mallaig, you take the ferry ‘over the sea to Skye’; to the southern area of the island.* Your afternoon will be spent exploring the incredible landscapes of the Sleat Peninsula. Your guide may take you to the famed waterfalls of Glenbrittle or to the Cuillin Mountains in Elgol, where you can revel in the stunning views. After all these sublime sights, you head to your overnight base in the Lochalsh and Skye area for the next two nights. *During the winter months (October till the end of March) you take a scenic route through Kyle of Lochalsh and drive over the Skye Bridge.

Day 04: Touring

Today is your opportunity to see at close hand some of the wonders of Skye. Your guide will choose the best itinerary to suit the weather and local conditions to give you a chance to get off the beaten track and slowly discover the best spots for photo opportunities or where to spot some whales or basking sharks. In the late afternoon you return to our overnight base for the evening.

Day 05: Touring - Edinburgh

Today, travel south through Glen Shiel and past magnificent Loch Cluanie as we head east for a view of Britain's highest mountain Ben Nevis.

Travelling south from here we return to the Lowlands and back into Edinburgh with views over the Forth estuary and the world famous Forth Rail Bridge.
