Places you'll explore


Loch Maree - Thousands of years ago, druids believed this beautiful Loch had the power to cure lunacy.

Torridon - Enter this village and be amazed at the mountainous splendour on the community’s doorstep.

Shieldaig - A serious contender for the award of Scotland’s most outrageously picturesque village.

Applecross - Tight hairpin bend, and winding mountain trails. The roads may seem a little mad but the views are completely worth it.

Eilean Donan Castle - An iconic and gorgeous 13th century castle that once warded off Viking invasions.

Loch Ness - This loch holds more fresh water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined. But does it hide the Loch Ness monster?

Itinerary

An early start takes you westwards towards Kinlochewe and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. The imposing Beinn Eighe Ridge gives way to the world famous Loch Maree, home to the majestic Golden Eagle. As we head down through Torridon towards Shieldaig, we pass some of Europe’s most ancient geology and wild scenery.

We travel on up the renowned Bealach Na Ba (pass of the cattle) and onto the isolated village of Applecross for lunch. You’ll enjoy incredible views towards Skye and the Hebrides as we make our way towards Eilean Donan castle. This picture-perfect castle is perched on a junction of three gorgeous lochs.

Following a visit to the castle we make our way along the shores of Loch Ness, returning to Inverness in the early evening.
