The Splendid Highland Tour Itinerary
You will be collected from your local departure point by our coach and stop on route to Scotland for comfort breaks, before arriving at the Muthu Ben Doran Hotel in time for dinner.
Day Two – Callander & Stirling
After breakfast we depart for the historic city of Stirling. We travel to Callander through magnificent Highland scenery, before emerging into central Scotland with Stirling Castle coming into view. Take time to explore this delightful city and perhaps visit the magnificent mediaeval castle, which houses the Museum of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. We return to the Muthu Ben Doran hotel for a second night.
Day Three – Oban and Lorne
We say a fond farewell to the Muthu Ben Doran Hotel and head west though Glen Lochy and past Loch Awe and Loch Etive to arrive in the coastal town of Oban. You will have time to explore the town and have lunch before we leave for Fort William in the afternoon. A leisurely drive will take you over the Connel Bridge at the Falls of Lora and follow the west coast up to Fort William. Here, you will be welcomed for your three-night stay at the Muthu Fort William Hotel.
Day Four – Day at Leisure in Fort William
A chance to relax at the hotel or explore the town and its environs at your own pace.
Day Five – Fort Augustus and Loch Ness
Today we head north following the Great Glen, crossing the Caledonian Canal several times before reaching Fort Augustus on the shores of Loch Ness. Here you will have the opportunity to take a cruise and find out more about this famous and mysterious loch. After lunch, we head back and if lucky, there will be views of Ben Nevis from the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge.
After breakfast we begin our journey home passing through Glen Coe and over Rannoch Moor – surely one of the most scenic routes in Scotland, and a fitting way to end any visit to the Highlands.
