Majestic Isles of Skye, Harris & Lewis

Experience the Outer Hebrides in our new tour exploring the west coast and islands. Marvel at the magnificent scenery of the Isle of Skye before crossing over to the magical islands of Harris & Lewis, steeped in Neolithic history, then weaving our way through the Cairngorms to finish in picture-postcard Pitlochry.

Day 1 Arrival in Fort William
We arrive at our first hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 The Isle of Skye
This morning we set off for the islands passing Eilean Donan Castle on the way, one of the most recognisable castles in Scotland. After crossing the Skye Bridge we make our way up this famous island to Portree and then onto Uig, where we catch the afternoon ferry to Tarbert on Harris. On arrival, we make our way to our second hotel, the Caladh Inn.

Day 3 Harris & Lewis
Today, we visit the Isle of Lewis where we enjoy a scenic tour. The isle is steeped in history and culture, ranging back thousands of years. First we visit the Calanais Visitor Centre and the extraordinary Calanais Standing Stones erected 5,000 years ago, predating the famous Stonehenge monument. Our tour continues with a visit to the Gearrannan Blackhouse Village where we step back in time to experience the way of life in a typical crofting township of the 19th century.

Day 4 Stornoway & travel to Ullapool
We spend some time at leisure relaxing this morning in Stornoway, before heading to the ferry terminal to board our afternoon ferry to Ullapool. On arrival, we make the journey south again via Inverness to our home for the next two nights in Pitlochry. We arrive at our hotel in time for a late dinner.

Day 5 Pitlochry Driver’s Day Off
Relax in your hotel and enjoy exploring the picture-postcard town of Pitlochry. Popular for over 150 years as a holiday destination, the town boasts Queen Victoria as one of its original visitors.
