Join this tour and explore the beautiful and varied landscapes of the Highlands.
Depart from Inverness and head north over the Beauly Firth towards the dramatic landscapes of the northern Highlands. There will be many opportunities to take photos before arriving at the exceptionally beautiful viewpoint of Loch Maree.
Head down towards the Loch to the Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve Visitor Centre for a short break and from here, you'll take a single-track road through one of Scotland’s National Nature Reserves. Your driver-guide will tell you all about the woodland regeneration in the area and may give you a chance to enjoy a close look at the native pine trees.
You'll then travel through the dramatic landscapes of the Torridon mountains. As you reach the west coast, you'll see incredible views across the Torridon Range, down over the Loch, and out to sea.
Then, you'll stop for refreshments in the scenically situated town of Sheildaig, before taking on one of the most beautifully twisting roads in Scotland. This road may be the most photographed road on the famous North Coast 500 route.
There will be a relaxing lunch break in Applecross, where there will be a space reserved for you at a local pub for lunch. From here, the tour will continue to Loch Duich, where you find Eilean Donan Castle; situated on a small island accessed by a bridge. You can visit the castle or simply enjoy the view from the visitor center, which has a café, shop, and toilets.
The journey back to Inverness passes the Five Sisters of Kintail Mountain range, historic Glenshiel, Loch Ness, and the Great Glen.
