Highlands & Coast Tour

Highlands & Coast Tour

All tours by appointment

 (Individual tours by appointment)

A trip  to Scotland starts generally in Edinburgh. Within easy reach you find lots of castles, distilleries, small villages and much more sights.
But there is a feeling that the real Scotland begins in the very Northwest beyond the Caledonian Canal and Inverness. Here you find lonely and empty roads, fantastic landscapes and the breathtaking coastline of the Atlantic on single track roads. It‘s touring on the edge to discover the wild and unknown you won’t find somewhere else.

The Highlands & Coast Tour gives you this unique experience. Starting at the Fonab Castle Hotel in Pitlochry the tour follows challenging roads until you reach Durness in the very North. It then winds alongside the coast down to the Isle of Skye. From here the tour leads back to Edinburgh, passing the gorgeous Glencoe. Be curious and ready for lots of surprises!
