Day 2 Stirling

We travel by coach to Stirling with its magnificent castle and preserved ancient town, then to our hotel in the Highlands for a four-night stay.

Breakfast, Dinner



Day 3 Jacobite Steam Railway

Today we enjoy a journey onboard the Jacobite Steam Railway enjoying views of the Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum, and beautiful views of lochs and mountains. Our rail journey takes us over the Glenfinnan viaduct made famous by the Harry Potter films. (Please note that your train journey will either be one-way from Fort William to Mallaig, or one-way from Mallaig to Fort William). During the day, we will call at Neptune’s Staircase – a staircase lock built by Thomas Telford.

Breakfast, Dinner



Day 4 Kyle Line Railway & the Isle of Skye

Join today's included excursion as we head to Inverness by coach, and board the Scotrail service to travel west through mountains and lakes and alongside Loch Carron into the small port of Kyle of Lochalsh from where we travel by coach to Isle of Skye. After some free time, we return to our hotel through glorious Highland panoramas.

Breakfast, Dinner



Day 5 Aviemore Steam Railway & Spey Valley

We travel by coach to Aviemore and take the Strathspey Steam Train for a ride through the spectacular Speyside Mountains to Broomhill station which famously appeared as Glenbogle station in BBC’s ‘Monarch of the Glen’ series. Afterwards, enjoy free time in Grantown on Spey, a traditional town surrounded by ancient woodlands, before returning by coach to our hotel.

Breakfast, Dinner



Day 6 Edinburgh

To Edinburgh for free time. Often referred to as the ‘Athens of the North’ and, because it was built on seven hills, likened to Rome, Edinburgh is indeed a classical city in its own right. Overlooking the Old Town is the massive castle, with its commanding view of the city and surrounding countryside, including the Firth of Forth. The almost chaotic layout of the Old Town is in complete contrast to the northern part of the city built in Georgian times and reflecting the great architectural characteristics of that period. Laid out to a grand design, the New Town has wide streets and elegant squares and is bordered to the south by Princes Street Gardens and to the north by Queen Street Gardens. Highlights include the Royal Mile, the Palace of Holyrood and Sir Walter Scott Monument. We head to our overnight hotel in the Glasgow area.

Breakfast, Dinner



Day 7

To Glasgow for our return flight,
