Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Edinburgh to meet our Tour Manager. Once on board the coach we head north west from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye. It's a long but beautiful journey, which we'll break in Pitlochry and at famous Eilean Donan Castle on the shores of Loch Duich.

Day Two

After breakfast, today, we'll head past the Cullin Mountains to Dunvegan Castle - stronghold of the chiefs of MacLeod for nearly 800 years, and said to be the oldest continuously occupied 'family home' in Scotland. Discover its fascinating history, and wander the beautiful formal gardens that lie hidden amid the surrounding moorland and mountains.

This afternoon, explore Portree. Admire the dramatic scenery and delightful white and colour-washed buildings around the harbour, browse the shops, and find out about the local environment at the town's exhibition.

Day Three

Travelling via the Trotternish peninsula and the Skye Museum of Island Life (entrance payable locally), today we'll make the ferry crossing from Uig to the Isle of Harris, before continuing by coach to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, where we'll check in to our hotel.

Though a single landmass, Lewis and Harris have their own distinct identities and landscapes, and you'll stay amid the rolling moorland and freshwater lochs of Lewis.

Day Four

Harris is an island split in two - high mountains and rocky coastline to the east; unspoilt Atlantic beaches to the west. See Rodel Church, possibly the grandest medieval building in the Western Isles and explore the little port of Tarbert.

Back on Lewis we'll visit the standing stones of Callanish - 50 ancient stones arranging in rays around a central ring and easily the most mysterious sight in the islands - stop at Carloway Broch, a 2,000-year-old fortified dry-stone tower, and visit the reconstructed Black House at Arnol, inhabited until 1965 - for a fascinating insight into the lives of the islands' past inhabitants.

Day Five

On our final morning we'll head to the Butt of Lewis at the island's northern tip to take in the vast views of the remote landscape before we say our farewells. In the early afternoon, we'll begin the two-hour 45-minute crossing to Ullapool before a wonderfully scenic journey through Wester Ross to our final hotel in Newtonmore.

Day Six

Today we head back to Edinburgh Airport to catch our flight home. Along the way, though, we'll make a final stop in the charming highland town of Pitlochry.

Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Too much time spent on coach or being turned off in rain to find our own way around.

A very enjoyable trip. Excellent tour manager (Nick) But, great pity journey Ullapool to Newtonmore was in darkness. This tour was too late in year. We thought hotels and meals were very good

The holiday to Sottish highlands was lovely, however the standard of the first hotel sadly really let the trip down.(Dunollie Hotel in Skye)It was depressing and quite grubby.
What really spoilt it was my travelling companion was a vegan and Newmarket were fully aware of this.At this particular hotel they had no idea what this entailed and my friend had
to eat of bowl of green salad for her main meal. No one seemed to speak English and it was
very embarrassing for her.
The leader or our holiday seemed unable to sort this.

PETER

Ilminster Couple
First hotel, tired looking, uncomfortable beds, but 2nd hotel excellent and third hotel good. Our tour guide was Billy Connolly without the bad language. He had a good sense of humour. With an excellent knowledge of culture, history and geography, he really put his best into making our trip enjoyable.
Skye surpassed our expectations. Seeing a large pod of dolphins between Stornoway and Ullapool was the icing on the cake.

REAY

Bristol Couple
Our tour of the Hebrides was well planned. Although we were aprehensive about taking a coach trip, it was absolutely the best way for us both to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. Unfortunately travelling in October meant not everywhere was open. The tour was made all the more enjoyable by the good humour of our tour guide.
Although the choice of hotels must be limited in remote areas the Dunollie hotel in Skye failed to produce food that was hot at any meal, the staff struggled to understand English and were not welcoming or hospitable. The Caberfeidh in Stornoway was faultless, with flawless service, great food. The Highlander hotel offered good food and nice large bedrooms and bathrooms to relax before journeying home
