Days 3 - 5 Tue - Thu

One day is free for you to explore the delights of
Strathpeffer. Way back in Victorian times this spa town was one of Europe’s most
important spas, so much so that it had a direct train service from London. Sadly the
trains are gone, but the renovated station buildings house a visitor centre, Museum of
Childhood and Craft Workshops. Then during your stay in Strathpeffer the following 2
excursions are included:
GAIRLOCH AND LOCH MAREE. A tour through some of the best Highland scenery.
We head west along Strath Bran to Kinlochewe where we follow the shores of
beautiful Loch Maree to Gairloch, on the west coast. From here we head via Poolewe
to Aultbea, Gruinard Bay and Little Loch Broom. We stop at the magnificent awe
inspiring Corrieshalloch Gorge. The views from the suspension bridge across the gorge
are stunning and not to be missed. From here we make our way back past Loch
Glascarnoch to Garve and Strathpeffer.
DUNROBIN CASTLE AND THE FALLS OF SHIN. We head north along the shore of
the Cromarty Firth to Bonar Bridge and the Falls of Shin Visitor Centre, where we take
a break. From here we make our way to stunning Dunrobin Castle and Gardens. In the
castle move through centuries of habitation by Dukes and Earls of Sutherland and
enjoy the period treasures in the many magnificent rooms. Dramatically set between
castle and sea, Dunrobin’s great walled gardens are a delight. To finish the day we
rejoin the coach for the ride back to the hotel.
