Holiday Itinerary

Itinerary

WEDNESDAY We travel north over the border into Scotland for our overnight stay at the Tinto House Hotel, Biggar.

THURSDAY Our journey north continues to the Highlands where we reach Aviemore and enjoy a ride on the nostalgic Strathspey Railway to Broomhill. On then to Inverness, for time at leisure, before proceeding to the Priory Hotel, Beauly for our three nights stay. Tea/coffee will be served on arrival, and porterage is included at this hotel.

FRIDAY An early start today for the scenic journey to the remote Georgian town of Thurso. Following time at leisure, enjoy today's rail journey on the Far North Line, the northern most railway in the United Kingdom. Experience the wilderness of the moors, before the dramatic scenery of the eastern coastline unfolds before you.

SATURDAY The highlight for most will be today's journey on one of the world's finest coast-to-coast railway journeys to the Kyle of Lochalsh, overlooking the Isle of Skye. This spectacular train ride is undoubtedly one of the most scenic rail journeys in the United Kingdom. Rejoin the coach for an equally interesting return drive via Loch Ness.

SUNDAY We begin our journey south with a break in Pitlochry, one of the most beautiful and vibrant places to visit in the heart of Scotland. From here we continue to the Tinto Hotel for our final night's stay.

MONDAY We bid farewell to Scotland and commence our homeward journey, with suitable stops en route.
