Muthu Fort William Hotel - 6 Days, 5 Nights

Our newly acquired Muthu Fort William Hotel has made this exciting new tour possible.  We reach the west coast’s ‘sea-food capital’ town of Oban on the first day, but it is our next excursion to the Isle of Skye that is the real highlight of this tour.  The route through some of the finest Highland scenery to get to Skye is rewarding enough, but the Cuillin Mountains on the island are the real prize.  We view them from many directions as we head to the picturesque harbour town of Portree.  Next, we have a day at leisure in Fort William, followed by a day trip to Inverness and an included cruise on Loch Ness.  A truly memorable Highland experience.

Oban

After breakfast we follow the shores of Loch Linnhe along the coast road to Oban.  There are fine views along the way of distant hills and nearby islands, including striking views of Castle Stalker, built by the Stewart Clan in the 15th century.  We arrive in Oban with plenty of time for refreshment and to explore this bustling harbour town.  In the afternoon we return via Tyndrum and Glen Coe to complete a memorable day out.

Isle of Skye

The Isle of Skye is a wonderfully scenic destination, but we pass equally breath-taking scenery on the way.  Heading up from Glen Garry there are wonderful vistas to behold, and further delights along Loch Cluanie and down Glen Shiel, site of the last battle against foreign troops on British soil, in 1719.  We pass Eilean Donan castle and stop at the Kyle of Lochalsh before taking the road bridge over to Skye.  We view the Cuillin mountains and have time to explore in Tobermory before making the return trip.

At Leisure in Fort William

Today we have the chance to explore Fort William and surroundings, or just take time to relax at the hotel.

Loch Ness Cruise & Inverness (Cruise included)

Following the route of the Caledonian Canal today brings us along the Great Glen to Fort Augustus at the southern end of Loch Ness.  There is an included cruise, on a modern, well-equipped vessel with all necessary amenities and excellent commentary.  Then we follow the shores of Loch Ness to spend time exploring Inverness, capital of the Highlands with its Victorian Market, castle and cathedral; this city really packs a lot into a small space!
