INTO THE SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS

 

Finish your morning coffee; store your bags and push the “GO” button on your pre-programmed navigation to leave Edinburgh north over the impressive Forth Road Bridge.

 

Soon you will join the Old Military Road taking you over the seemingly endless scenic roads of the Cairngorms National Park and Scotland's highest mountain pass.

 

Visit your first Scottish Castle nestled between forest inside the Scottish hills before heading towards the summer residence of the royal family at Balmoral.


Scottish Whiskey Trail - the name wakes expectations, but wait until you’ve seen the roads. Enjoy a guided tour at a Scottish Whiskey Distillery before heading towards the capital of the Scottish Highlands.

📍4* Old Drynie House

📅 DAY 3 - DRIVING TOUR 2

LEG 1 OF THE NC500 ROUTE

 

Waking up to another exciting day of driving; you will soon follow the first official leg of the iconic NC500 Route shores of Loch Ness. From the remains of Urghurt Castle you get the chance to look out for the legendary Loch Ness Monster.

 

Further down your scenic route you will soon spot Scotland’s most iconic man made sight - Eilean Donan Castle that graces many postcards.


After we have planned a drive over the famous road to Applecross (also known as Bealach Na Ba Pass) and the visit to an almost tropical garden up here in the rough climate of the Highlands. 

 

The bridge connecting the Highlands with the Isle of Skye will be your gateway to reach your hotel; where you can zip your Whiskey sample from the other day in front of the fireplace. 

📍4* Toravaig House Hotel

➕ OPTIONAL

 

ISLE OF SKYE DRIVING LOOP

Stay a 2nd night at your hotel on the Isle of Skye and loop over the largest and northernmost of the major islands in the Inner Hebrides.

Skye is home to some of Scotland's most iconic landscapes that enchant with mountain ranges, miles of dramatic coastline, waterfalls and a captivating history.

Discover the natural beauty and scenic driving roads during a relaxed day of driving and enjoy a lunch overlooking the cliffs of dramatic coastline including the option for a hike that will leave a lasting travel memory.

📍4* Toravaig House Hotel

➕ OPTIONAL

LEG 2 OF THE NC500 ROUTE

There's nothing quite like the freedom of the long open road. We highly recommend to stay a 2nd night at Inverness towards the end of your tour and get the chance of driving the most scenic part of the spectacular North Coast holiday route.

Never-ending back roads, wide meandering country tracks and beautiful bends through some of Scotland's finest coastal scenery without any distractions.

📍4* Old Drynie House

📅 DAY 4 - DRIVING TOUR 3

GLEN COE DRIVE

 

The scenery of today's drive will speak for itself. There are not many castles or museums to be visited; instead you can expect some of the best roads in an almost unreal and in parts even moonlike landscape. Part of the magnificence of Glen Coe are also the many small natural waterfalls and mountains. Once you past  Ben Navis; Scotland's highest mountain you will get to the iconic Stirling Castle on the way back to Edinburgh.
