Head to the Highlands on this eight-day adventure through Scotland’s most picturesque spots. Start your Premium journey at a whisky distillery and warm your heart (and belly), ready for the brisk beauty of the rolling hills, expansive lochs and high peaks of the Scottish Highlands. Drive through scenic landscapes, try to spot the famed monster on a cruise on Loch Ness, explore castles, meet local characters, visit a wildlife reserve, wander through the quiet of islands Seil and Easdale and stay in an amazing historic mansion for your Feature Stay, where you can spend an afternoon exploring the lush private grounds. End it all in Edinburgh, the birthplace of Harry Potter and many other literature acclaims, and explore the Old Town, overlooked by the medieval castle perched high on the hill.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Discover a hidden folly in the forest of the Scottish Highlands, overlooking a cascading waterfall. Then, visit a wildlife reserve known for its nesting ospreys.
  • Spend an afternoon in Cairngorms National Park in an outdoor folk museum scattered with traditional buildings.
  • Take a cruise on Loch Ness and look for the elusive beast as you sail on the famous, quiet waters of the still loch and marvel at the gorgeous scenery all around you.
  • Spend a day skipping stones and wandering through the quiet landscape of the islands Seil and Easdale – with tiny populations, these islands are a great setting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • Spend two nights at your Feature Stay mansion house on the outskirts of Edinburgh. Set amid 40 acres of gardens and dating back to the 1400’s, this classic Scottish estate will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Eden Reforestation Projects. Donations help them provide local employment opportunities and tackle climate change one tree at a time as they restore forests across 10 different countries.

Is this trip right for you?
  • On most days you’ll be exploring on your feet, whether that is enjoying a forest walk, exploring tiny islands on the west coast, or discovering the history around each corner in Edinburgh’s Old Town. Therefore, you will need a basic level of fitness and should expect to be walking and active for at least a couple of hours each day. However, this is not a hiking tour.
