Our base for this Highland Safari is the Fishers Hotel Pitlochry, offering a traditional Scottish welcome and superb hospitality. The highlight of our tour is an adventurous (but comfortable!) Land Rover Safari which gives you the opportunity to view some of the rarely seen Highland scenery and wildlife.
The 3 star Fishers Hotel is situated in the heart of the highland town of Pitlochry. The hotel offers excellent comfort and Scottish Hospitality. All the en suite bedrooms are equipped with TV, telephone, hairdryer and tea making facilities. There is a lift.
We travel into the heart of Scotland with a refreshment break in Stirling en route to Pitlochry for 4 nights half board accommodation at the Fishers Hotel.
Trossachs scenery today as we travel via General Wades Bridge and Aberfeldy, through the Sma’ Glen to the pretty market town of Crieff. We continue via Comrie and along the banks of Loch Earn to Callander, the capital of the Trossachs, then onwards into ‘Rob Roy Country’ over Port of Mentith to Aberfoyle returning to our hotel via Glen Ogle and Loch Tay.
Today we include a drive up wonderful Glen Shee and over the Cairngorm Mountains to Braemar, the home of the Highland Gathering where we take time for refreshment. We continue towards Royal Deeside to enjoy magnificent views of Balmoral Castle and stop at Crathie Church home to many Royal wedding ceremonies. We return to Pitlochry for some free time.
Today is one of the highlights of our programme as we embark upon the highland safari into the hills of Perthshire. Our transport is in modern Land Rovers driven by qualified ‘off road’ drivers and are experienced in the terrain that we visit. You may be lucky enough to see majestic red deer, the famous Grouse, the elusive Mountain Hare and the soaring Golden Eagle. Binoculars and telescopes are provided along with wildlife identification sheets and tea, shortbread and a ‘wee dram’. Groups will be split and will each enjoy free time in Aberfeldy.
We depart for home with suitable refreshment stops along the way arriving into our local area late afternoon.
