Holiday Overview

Join us as we embark upon a true Scottish adventure, travelling via road, sea and rail. We begin in the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Lewis, renowned worldwide for its stunning landscape of sandy beaches and sparkling blue waters. We then move onto the Isle of Skye, here you will discover some of the finest scenery in the world including the Cuillin Mountains, breath-taking cliff lines and views that you will treasure forever. Not only will your guide bring to life some of the history and culture of the area, but you will also hear of a land that is steeped in myth and legend. We include entry to the magical Dunvegan Castle, take a 'wildlife' trip on a glass bottom boat and experience a rail journey on the original 'Great Railway Journey of the World' taking us from Kyle of Lochalsh to Inverness.
