Highland Explorer Tour inc. Eilean Donan Castle
A stunning Highland tour from Inverness that includes Eilean Donan Castle along with the amazing scenery of the Torridon mountains and Beinn Eighe. Take a tour off the beaten track into the Scottish Highlands!
Our Highland Explorer tour begins at Inverness where we journey south-west along the banks of Loch Ness before before turning west through Glen Moriston on the way to explore the beautiful Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel. Continuing on towards Loch Duich at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains - one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the Scottish Highlands - we take a detour up Mam Ratagan for a breath-taking view of the Highlands!
At Eilean Donan Castle, the ancestral home of the Clan Macrae, we explore the castle’s ancient and historic past - with time for a visit into the castle to discover its secrets - as well as savouring the wonderful Highland views around the castle.
The afternoon takes on a wonderful country drive through Lochcarron, Kishorn and Shieldaig towards the spectacular Torridon mountains and the Beinn Eighe Nature reserve, home to some truly breath-taking scenery. Arriving in Kinlochewe, we stop at the stunning viewpoint of Glen Docherty looking down on Loch Maree before our return journey to Inverness.
This tour is just a wonderful sight-seeing tour through stunning Highland landscapes exploring the less travelled countryside of Wester Ross. It’s a great way to see the best of the Highlands on a relaxed one day tour. There are photo and viewpoint stops and time out of the vehicle enjoying the scenery.
