Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • After landing at Inverness airport, you’ll be met by your tour manager and transferred to your hotel, which looks out over the majestic Ben Wyvis Mountain.

    You’ll have time to get settled in, perhaps grab a drink in the snug lounge, and then have dinner.

  • Breakfast this morning will followed by a full day of sightseeing. The tour will start by travelling along the west shore of the beautiful Loch Ness, where you’ll have a chance to stop and take in the spectacular scenery from the banks of this world-famous fresh-water lake.

    Continuing along the A87, the tour will then head to the Isle of Skye, calling at Eilean Donan Castle on the shores of Loch Doch. Here, you’ll be able to snap a photograph of the castle, which was captured in movies such as the James Bond series.  

    You’ll then cross Skye Bridge to the Isle of Skye, known for its dramatic scenery, peppered with craggy outcrops, ancient castles, and fishing villages. Upon arrival, you can check into your charming accommodation with traditional features, take it easy and have dinner.

  • Fuel up on breakfast as you have another day of sightseeing ahead, allowing you to get better acquainted with the Isle of Skye.

    The tour will kick-off by passing the lofty and often mist-clad Cullin Hills and journeying towards Dunvegan Castle and Gardens. This is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years. You’ll join a tour of the property and its gardens awash with eclectic plants, ornate bridges, and ponds.

    In the afternoon, you’ll travel to the island’s main town, Portree, lined with white and colour-washed buildings set around the harbour. Embrace some time to potter around the pretty port before returning to your hotel for dinner

  • Enjoy breakfast, check out of the hotel and then the tour will make its way to Armadale, where you’ll catch a ferry (weather permitting) to the fishing town of Mallaig.

    From the ferry, you’ll continue driving through the Highlands, and passing by the Glenfinnan Viaduct, the longest concrete railway bridge in Scotland that features in several Harry Potter movies. You’ll also get the opportunity to stop at Fort William, the gateway to Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak, and view the mountain in all its glory.

    Later in the day, you’ll be taken to your next hotel, where you can nurse a whiskey in the loch-facing bar before dinner.

  • Get prepped for a new day of exploration after breakfast, starting with a transfer to Oban, ‘the gateway to the isles. You’ll then catch a ferry to the Isle of Mull and begin a guided sightseeing tour.

    Tobermory, a highlight of the excursion, is the main town on the isle, and sports a colourful strip of buildings strung along its port. You can meander around the shops, cafés, and restaurants all the while taking in the surrounding views of the coastline.

    Later in the day, you’ll return to your hotel to rest up and have dinner.

  • It’s your final day, and following breakfast, you’ll make the most of it by journeying to Trossachs National Park, which was Scotland’s first national park. An expanse of wooded glens, teeming with wildlife, this park is home to the largest lake in the UK, Loch Lomond.

    You’ll take to the waters of this lake with a cruise while keeping your eyes peeled for beavers and otters paddling near the banks, the regal Scottish red deer strolling alongside or some of the 200 species of birds that inhabit the area.

    Towards the end of this nature-filled day, you’ll travel on to another hotel in the greater Glasgow area for your last dinner.

  • Have breakfast, check out, and transfer to the airport to catch your flight home.

Further Information

  • Rules may have changed since you last travelled to European Union countries and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. The following are useful guidelines which will help you prepare for your next adventure. Note that these new rules do NOT apply when travelling within the United Kingdom or to the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or the Republic of Ireland. You do require government issued ID when travelling by air though.

    Passport

    Your passport must meet two requirements to travel to an EU country and to Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. It must be:

    • Less than 10 years old on the day you return home – please check the "date of issue"
    • Valid for at least 3 months after the day you return home – please check the "expiry date"

    These rules do not apply to travel to Ireland where you can continue to use your passport as long as it’s valid for the length of your stay.

    Visa

    If you’re a tourist, you do not need a visa for short trips to most EU countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. You’ll be able to stay for up to 90 days in any rolling 180-day period. Different rules will apply to Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus and Romania; if you visit these countries, visits to other EU countries will not count towards the 90-day total. Travel to Ireland will not change and stays there will not count towards the 90-day total.

    European Travel Information & Authorisation System (ETIAS)

    Towards the end of 2022, it is likely that non EU citizens will be required to apply online for an authorisation to visit most European countries. The current details suggest there will be a charge of €7 per person and the authorisation will be valid for all trips made to the EU in a three year period from issue. We will advise you of confirmed details prior to your tour’s departure.

    Border Control

    At border control, you may need to show proof of your return journey - your travel documentation issued by us will be sufficient for this. You will also need to use separate lanes from EU, EEA and Swiss citizens if manual checks are required.

    Healthcare Cover

    You should always get appropriate travel insurance with healthcare cover before you go abroad which covers pre-existing conditions. You should understand the terms and conditions of your travel insurance and be happy with its cover for healthcare and travel disruption. Newmarket sell a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Ask our travel consultants for more information.

    You should also apply for a UK Global Heath Insurance Card (GHIC) which lets you get urgent state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. Note GHIC is only valid in EU countries and not in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

    Mobile Roaming

    Roaming charges are applied by some UK providers when visiting the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. Prior to travel, please do check with your phone operator for the most up to date information.
