Day 1: Following your home taxi collection, we travel to our overnight hotel making suitable stops en-route.
Day 2: A day of wonderful scenery as we continue our journey to Crianlarich, for our four-night stay.
Day 3: We board the train at Crianlarich station for the scenic journey through the Pass of Brander to Oban – the capital of the West Coast, and Scotland’s favourite West Highland retreat. You’ll have time to wander down winding streets overlooking the picturesque bay, or perhaps take a walk up to McCaig’s Tower, to enjoy spectacular views across Oban Bay. Later, we rejoin our train for the journey back to Crianlarich. (10-minute walk to Crianlarich station from the hotel).
Day 4: We travel along Glen Dochart to the village of Killin, viewing the Falls of Dochart flowing through the village. We continue along Loch Tay to explore the small market town of Aberfeldy. After
lunch, we journey along the Sma’ Glen to the Glenturret Distillery, makers of the Famous Grouse. Here we enjoy a tour and a wee dram.
Day 5: We discover one of the hidden wonders of the Highlands. A power station buried deep under Ben Cruachan – the hollow mountain. At its centre lies a massive cavern, high enough to house the Tower of London. The hollow mountain is unique, an underground world on a spectacular scale, a five-star attraction, not to be missed. From here we head north to Fort William. We have time to explore this popular town before we make our way south alongside Loch Linnhe to Ballachulish and Loch Leven. The Glencoe Visitor Centre is our afternoon break and here you can learn all about the feuding clans and the infamous massacre. We return over rugged and awesome Rannoch Moor to Crianlarich.
Day 6: After breakfast, we make our way to the shores of Loch Lomond. Whilst here you may wish to take the opportunity to enjoy a cruise along the loch (not included). Mid-morning, we bid farewell and make our way to our overnight hotel.
Day 7: We return to Norfolk, where our door to door service will be waiting to return you home.
