Excursion 1—Board the train in Inverness, the Highland Capital for “one of the most beautiful rail journeys in Europe” - Michael Palin. In Kyle your coach collects you for the short journey to the Isle of Skye with time for sightseeing. Returning to your hotel by coach through wonderful Highland splendour.
Excursion 2—Time free in Aviemore, before boarding the steam train for the 45 minute journey through spectacular Speyside mountains scenery. Time free in Grantown on Spey Centre, Dulnain Bridge, a new visitor experience about Cairngorms National Park, it’s myths, legends folklore and the history of whisky and heathers.
Excursion 3—Join the Jacobite Steam Train in Fort William on the two hour journey to Mallaig—made world famous in the Harry Potter movies, absorbing beautiful views of lochs, mountains, Glenfinnan Viaduct and the small Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum. In Mallaig free time to look round this Highland Fishing town and have lunch. The road journey back in your coach is very different to the rail journey with a stop off in Glenfinnan to see Bonnie Prince Charlie’s monument, the massive viaduct & Loch Shiel, and finally Banavie neptune's Staircase, a series of 8 lock gates on the Caledonian Canal.
