Driver Guided Tours

A GRAND TOUR OF SCOTLAND - 6 DAY TOUR

 

This 6-day driver guided tour will take you to what we consider to be many of Scotland’s highlights including some real hidden gems. It covers many of the most spectacular parts of Scotland including the dramatic and varying landscapes of the Central and North West Highlands, the magical Isle of Skye, Inverness-shire and the Cairngorm Mountains, Royal Deeside and then down to the lowlands and picturesque rolling agricultural landscapes of rural Perthshire and Fife. The trip also includes a train journey on the world famous “Jacobite Steam Train” as featured in the Harry Potter film.

Your accommodation includes a night in a beautifully secluded west coast family run hotel near the village of Appin, with an award winning seafood restaurant. You will then have two nights in an award winning 19th Century Inn on the Isle of Skye with stunning sea views back towards the mainland. In Inverness, you will have a night at a very comfortable bed and breakfast well located in the centre of Inverness by the River Ness, overlooking Inverness Castle. Your final night will be in a magnificent 4-star country house hotel in rural Perthshire.
