Day 1 - East Coast of Scotland
On day 1 we travel from St Andrews on the east coast of Scotland to Ullapool on the north-west coast. On our travels, we will visit the ancient Cathedral village of Dunkeld, Aviemore in the Cairngorms, and the very deep and very impressive Corrieshalloch Gorge.
Days 2 & 3 - Islands - Lewis & Harris
We will travel to the far north of Lewis to view the lighthouse and cliffs at the Butt of Lewis and then head south to take in Dalmore beach and Dun Carloway Broch. En route, we may stop to meet one of the many cottage weavers of Harris Tweed where there is the chance to buy this world-renowned fabric literally right off the loom. Overnight will be in Stornoway, the bustling capital of Lewis.
Our first stop on day 3 is the Callanish Standing Stones – dating from 2900 BC and reckoned by many to be the most beautiful in the British Isles. We then visit the Iron Age settlement and beach at Bosta and Abhainn Dearg Whisky Distillery – one of Scotland’s newest. Our route then takes us over the Clisham Mountains to Tarbert in Harris where we will spend the night.
Day 4 - Isle of Skye
On Skye, we will investigate the Trotternish peninsula highlights of the Quiraing, Kilt Rock and the Old Man of Storr before reaching Portree for our final overnight stay.
