Scotland's Western Wanderer Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Edinburgh

Get lost in the tangled laneways of Scotland's capital. From dramatic castles to medieval streetscapes, Edinburgh is a city with a big history. Nicknamed the 'Athens of the North', explore the city's modern art galleries, ancient classical architecture and exciting nightlife.

Days 2-3 Oban

Visit Stirling Castle, then pass through the highland village of Crianlarich en route to Oban. Feel the sea breeze on a ferry trip up the Sound of Mull and take a coastal tour around the islands of Iona and Staffa.

Day 4 Glencoe

Bordered by the highest mountain range in the British Isles, journey north to Glen Nevis. Take in the stunning scenery of the region on a nature walk before travelling to Glencoe for the night.

Day 5 Isle of Skye

Take one of the most spectacular train journeys in the world aboard the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig. Used in three Harry Potter films, this experience will delight film buffs while providing some incredibly scenic views for photographers and those who just want to relax. Later, take a ferry to Skye.

Day 6 Loch Ness

Visit the dramatic Dunvegan Castle, which has been home to the chiefs of Clan Macleod for the last 800 years. Then continue onto the home of the elusive Loch Ness Monster - a picturesque deep freshwater loch situated in the scenic Scottish Highlands. Go on an afternoon visit of Glen Ord distillery.

Days 7-8 Glasgow

Take a river boat cruise on Loch Ness and visit Urquhart Castle before taking in the dramatic highland scenery of Trossachs National Park. Arrive in Glasgow for the evening and perhaps dine on traditional haggis, neeps and tatties for a true Scottish dining experience.
