A Spectacular Route North...

Cross the brooding expanse of Rannoch Moor and journey through Glen Coe...
Learn the brutal story of the MacDonald Clan massacre and take in the weeping waterfalls that inhabit this incredible glen.
Fort William for lunch and Britain’s tallest mountain...
This highland town marks the end of Scotland’s oldest and most popular long distance walks, The West Highland Way. There is a resting hiker statue looking out over Loch Linnhe. You can also take in views of Ben Nevis, the UK's tallest peak.
Eilean Donan: Scotland's most photographed castle...
As our road nears the coast, it passes Eilean Donan Castle*. Here you have the chance to take photographs and explore the castle that featured in the film Highlander. Then it's time to cross the bridge to Skye.
