Explore the wild and majestic Wester Ross and Loch Alsh and visit two historical and romantic castles.


The tour will allow me to take you on a journey through beautiful Ross shire to the rugged west coast of the Highlands. It's a land of loch's mountains's and glen's where the Red Deer wander freely in the hills and new vistas are around every corner.
We will travel to Loch carron following the west coast railway as it snakes it's way to the gateway to Skye. We will visit romantic Eilean Donan castle, one of the most beautiful and photographed castles in Scotland.
We will then make our way through beautiful Kintail towards Loch Ness where we will visit the 13th century Urquhart Castle where you can explore and climb the Grant tower and try to get a glimpse of "Nessie" the legendary monster.
We will then make our way to Inverness the capital of the Highlands and make a short tour of the city before heading back to your ship or accommodation.
We will, depending on numbers, travel in a modern comfortable SUV OR 8 seat vehicle.
