  • Day 1: Depart from Glasgow in a top of the range Mercedes mini- coach and travel north till you cross the ancient natural fault line that runs across Scotland. See the shift in landscape from flat lowlands to the majestic highlands surrounded by shimmering lochs, rugged mountain tops and forest-filled glens around you. Drive across to Rannoch Moor into Scotland’s famous valley Glencoe. Stunningly beautiful, with its dramatic cliff faces and steep slopes, Glencoe is infamous as the site of the Glencoe massacre in 1692. You will drive through Fort William before heading towards Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. Travelling west on the Road to the Isles, head through the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail, the mountains guarding the pass on the way to the Isle of Skye. Stop to visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most photographed castles, set at the junction of 3 lochs and almost completely surrounded by water. After crossing over the bridge to Skye, you will drive along the dramatic coastline towards the north to the final stop for the day, Portree (Kyleakin from 01st April 2016). You will be dropped to your accommodation in Portree (Kyleakin from 01st April 2016) where you spend the night in either a bed and breakfast accommodation or a 3-star hotel on twin sharing basis, as per option chosen. Day 2: You have the entire day to explore the Isle of Skye in your mini-coach. Drive to the Trotternish Ridge to see the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the stunning mountain pass of the Quiraing. Next, head westwards to the dramatic sea cliffs of Neist Point or visit Dunvegan Castle, the 13th century home of the Clan Macleod. You will return back to your accommodation in the evening. Day 3: You will make your return jouney to Glasgow as you drive south to the Cuillin Hills and back over to the mainland for spectacular views over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail.
