Skye & The Highlands
June 21st-July 1st, 2018 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open
Few visitors travel to Skye without leaving part of their heart in the Highlands. The breathtaking landscapes, the romance of the tales and legends, and the drama of noble and fiercely independent inhabitants, all combine to leave a lasting impression. Starting in Edinburgh “the Athens of the North”; we will travel on to Inverness- “the capital of the Highlands” with a day trip excursion on Loch Ness; Skye- home of Dunvegan Castle and Talisker Whisky Distillery; Mull where we will go to the holy island of Iona where Christianity in Scotland started; and Stirling- the gateway between the highlands and the lowlands. With plenty of time to enjoy a wee dram in a pub or two, join us this summer for this unforgettable northern journey into Scottish culture, history and stunning scenery.
Highlands by Rail: A Great Railway Journey to the isle of skye
September 14th-22nd, 2018 | Maximum Group Size: 15 Participants | Availability: Open
Few visitors travel over the sea to Skye without leaving at least a part of their heart behind in the Highlands. The breathtaking landscapes, the romance of the tales and legends, and the drama of noble and fiercely independent inhabitants all combine to leave a lasting impression. We’ll begin in the capital, Edinburgh, exploring its intriguing Old Town, an area of winding streets steeped in atmosphere and history. The backbone of the Old Town, the Royal Mile, leads from Edinburgh Castle down to the Palace of Holyrood House. Then its north to Inverness, the “Capital of the Highlands,” and across to Skye. We’ll have two nights and a day to explore the Isle of Skye, soaking up tales of the Lords of the Sea Kingdom. We’ll travel between cities in comfort by train (first class where available) – a wonderful to sit and watch the magnificent landscapes roll past. The ride from Inverness across to the Kyle of Lochalsh is known as one of the “Great Railway Journeys of the World.” Along the way there will be unexpected visits, plenty of time for a wee dram in the local pub, and to appreciate the best of Scotland’s Highland scenery.
