Day 2-5

The following excursions are included:

AVIEMORE & HIGHLAND WILDLIFE PARK - We make our way to 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. Set within 105 hectares, with a large safari section, it is home to the famous Scottish Wildcats and other native Scottish species, as well as rare and endangered animals from around the world.

KYLE OF LOCHALSH - We travel north into the Highland capital, Inverness, to 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 along the shore of Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort William. Here we have a train journey on 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. We then join our coach for a stunning drive back to Newtonmore, where we go over the Glenfinnan Viaduct and stop at the Visitors Centre on the way, so you can see it from outside. This makes for a perfect photo opportunity, before we return to our hotel in time for dinner.

LOCH NESS CRUISE - 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.

Day 6

After breakfast we leave and continue our journey to your local area.
