What To Expect

Spend three days exploring the Scottish Highlands with a local guide at your side and fall in love with its beauty. You'll head north to discover some of the most iconic scenery and sights that Scotland has to offer including the Isle of Skye and even feel like you've gone back in time as you hop on board a Jacobite steam train. Bid Edinburgh farewell and start your journey north, you'll travel through the stunning Scottish countryside and make a couple of stops along the way at Dunkeld and Fort Augustus where you can might spot Nessie if you're lucky. Your home for the night will be on the Isle of Skye in the town of Portree and you'll be ready to spend your second day exploring this scenic island. Bursting with myths and legends, you'll hear all about the tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie's escape from the mainland and more as you discover the beauty of Scotland's most iconic island. You'll see everything from Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock with its cascading waterfall and Dunvegan's impressive castle before having another night on the island to relax and sleep. It's at this point that things change a little depending on the season. In the summer (from mid-April to mid-October), you'll have the chance to explore the castle and gardens of Clan Donald Skye before taking the ferry to the west coast fishing village of Mallaig. It is here, that you will board the iconic Jacobite steam train for an unforgettable journey.
