Romantic Journeys of Scotland
Scotland is renowned for its breathtaking and diverse landscapes, which encompass everything from rugged mountains and deep lochs (lakes) to rolling hills, coastal cliffs, and pristine islands. The country’s natural beauty has been a source of inspiration for artists, writers, and travelers for centuries

SUNDAY: Depart from your home area in the morning for Scotland, staying at the Highlander Hotel, Newtonmore.
MONDAY – THURSDAY: During your stay in Newtonmore the following excursions are included:
- AVIEMORE & HIGHLAND WILDLIFE – We make for Aviemore where we take a break and time to explore, enjoy the scenery and perhaps have a bite to eat. Later, we head to the Highland Wildlife Park, home to the famous Scottish Wildcats and other interesting animals, including its own safari drive.
- KYLE OF LOCHALSH – We travel north into the Highland capital, Inverness. Here we join the Scotrail train for one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World – the line to Kyle of Lochalsh. The route takes us through some of the best scenery in the country, skirting lochs and passing remote villages. After a break in Kyle of Lochalsh we enjoy the return ride, this time by road, back to the hotel.
- FORT WILLIAM, GLENFINNAN AND MALLAIG – This excursion takes us south west along the shore of Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort William. Here we have another train journey, this time of the celebrated West Highland Line to Mallaig. This spectacular line passes hidden lochs and inlets, silver sands, and crosses the magnificent Glenfinnan viaduct on its way west. Mallaig is a major fishing port and we have time to wander around the harbour and explore before we catch the train for the return journey to Fort William, where we rejoin the coach for the ride back to Newtonmore.
- LOCH NESS CRUISE – Loch Ness is our destination today. We travel through unspoilt scenery past Loch Mhor and along Stratherrick to Fort Augustus. Whilst here we have time to obtain lunch and we enjoy a cruise, with commentary, on Loch Ness on board ‘The Royal Scot’ from the Caledonian Canal. Later we leave Fort Augustus and head north overlooking the loch towards Inverness before heading back to Newtonmore.
FRIDAY: After breakfast we leave and continue our journey home.
