Lochcarron, Shieldaig, Applecross and Torridon


Your tour starts at 9am from Invergordon or Inverness travelling through the Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer with the landscape gradually getting wilder the further west we go.

At Achnasheen we head down through Glen Carron to the village of Lochcarron on the west coast.

We the travel to the village of Applecross over the Bealach na Ba, the Pass of the Cattle - climbing from sea level to 2, 053 feet with dramatic views across the Inner Sound to the Isle of Raasay and the Cuillins on the Isle of Skye.

We continue north around the coast to Shieldaig with magnificent views across to the islands of Raasay, Rona and Skye. After rounding the northern tip of the peninsula, the views change and we can now see the superb mountain scenery of the Torridon hills.

We now head inland back to our departure point through the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve and Glen Docherty.

Tour takes seven hours and can be amended to suit your requirements.
