Famous sights on the way include Loch Lomond, Ben Nevis and Loch Ness, then during the stay excursions involve visiting Loch Maree, Gruinard Bay, the Falls of Shin, Corrieshalloch Gorge and Dunrobin Castle.

Days 3 - 5 Mon - Wed

One day is
free for you to explore the delights of
Strathpeffer. Way back in Victorian times this
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:
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.
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.
