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.

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your first hotel is approximately five hours. The transfer time from your hotel to the airport on the last day is approximately three hours.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. 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.

Please note that the Broch is a short walk over fairly rough ground from the road.

Please note that most local businesses in the Outer Hebrides will be closed on Sundays.

Taunton Couple
We had a good holiday, and very good sea-crossings, but I have two comments :

i) Far too much time was spent at Edinburgh airport, waiting for flights from

different "home" airports.

ii) On a trip with so much "coach-time", fixed seat-allocations are unacceptable.

bristol Couple
Too early /late flight times - Bristol 6.30 am/Edinburgh 9.30 pm. Too long sat on coach for visit to a place e.g church Saturday pm. No looking/shopping time in Tarbert/Stornoway. Up & down same long road on Lewis & Harris. No chance to visit/walk on white sandy beaches.

Even when start of tour delayed by incoming flights (We waited over 3 hours at Edinburgh on first morning.) tour manager, Nick Clark, absolutely excellent throughout.

Bridgwater, Somerset Couple
The main downside was being in Stornaway on the Sunday. The place was shut and a coach trip back to Tarbert as an option showed a lack of imagination.

It would have been useful to know before the holiday that we were likely to spend a few hours in Edinburgh airport whilst waiting for the other passengers to arrive so we could have had a leisurely breakfast instead of a rushed one at Bristol. Also if we had known that we were going to spend a few hours in Edinburgh City prior to the flight home, we could have researched the best way to spend our time.

Wiltshire Couple
A very interesting and enjoyable holiday. There was one downside which was the first hotel in Skye. It was very tired. The food was poor and the rooms neglected and not very clean. The last hotel in Newtonmore was cancelled and we were sent elsewhere. Everyone was worried that the new hotel would be like the first one. Fortunately it was excellent. Had it not been for the first hotel in Skye, the points for the hotels and meals would have been higher. I would not go on this holiday again if the Skye hotel was still included. I feel Newmarket would be better served if it dropped this hotel from its itinery.

HOLYWOOD Couple
My husband and I enjoyed this holiday very much. We were particularly impressed with the tour manager and coach driver. The only minor complaint was our first hotel in Broadford which was not of the same standard of the other hotels. Having said that it did not sertously detract from the tour as a whole.
