Tour Highlights

Day 1: Inverness

Our tour begins in Inverness at the Palace Hotel & Spa, which overlooks the River Ness in the centre of the city. Perhaps familiarise yourself with the city on a riverside stroll before meeting for this evening's meal. This delightful city is considered to be the capital of the Highlands, and it is crowned by the stunning Inverness Castle.

Day 2: Jacobite Steam Train

Today we transfer to Fort William, where we join the Jacobite Steam Train* for the return journey to Mallaig, travelling on the magnificent West Highland Line, which is arguably the most scenic railway journey in the UK. During the journey, the train steams past Ben Nevis, then climbs into the mountains surrounding Glenfinnan, where we cross the 21 arches of the Glenfinnan Viaduct.

Day 3: The Kyle Line & Eilean Donan Castle

We spend the day discovering Scotland's treasures, with an excursion to the beautiful Eilean Donan Castle on the tiny island in Loch Duich.

Day 4: Strathspey Steam Railway & Cairngorm Mountain Railway

Our excursion today is on the tracks of the historic Highland Railway. Travelling to Aviemore by rail, we join the nostalgic Strathspey Steam Railway. From Aviemore through to Broomhill, the train passes moorlands, woods and by the River Spey. Through the large windows of the excellently restored carriages, take in the stunning sights of the Cairngorm National Park.

Day 5: Farewell from the Highlands

Your Tour Manager bids you farewell from Inverness and you are free to travel home independently.
