Day 1

Travel to the Priory Hotel, Beauly for a 4 night stay.

Day 2

Enjoy a memorable trip on one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys on the Kyle Line, the ‘Great Highland Railway Journey’. The train weaves its way through the Highlands and down to the Kyle of Lochalsh, close to the Isle of Skye. Crystal clear lochs mirror the forests and mountains on this wonderful journey. The views from the carriage windows are worth the fare alone, but the experience is thankfully repeated on the return to Beauly by coach.

Day 3

Head north over the awe-inspiring Cromarty and Dornoch Firths to Dornoch, with its 13th century cathedral, before continuing to the spectacular coastal setting at Dunrobin Castle with its fairytale spires and turrets, and which is one of Britain’s oldest continuously inhabited houses.

Day 4

Experience an unforgettable boat cruise on the Moray Firth to see the world’s most northerly population of bottlenose dolphins, along with other marine wildlife including seals and otters. Visit Inverness, the ‘Capital of the Highlands’, a thriving city with its historic Old Town, bustling centre and riverside setting.

Day 5

Reluctantly, it’s time for home.
