1. From Inverness: Torridon, Applecross, & Eilean Donan Castle

Depart Inverness at 08:30 and travel west towards Kinlochewe and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. Marvel at the imposing form of Beinn Eighe Ridge as it gives way to the world-famous Loch Maree, home to the majestic Golden Eagle. Next, head down through Torridon towards Shieldaig, passing some of Europe’s most ancient geology and wild scenery along the way. Continue up the renowned Bealach Na Ba ("Pass of the Cattle") and onwards to the isolated village of Applecross, where you will stop for lunch. Get incredible views towards the Isle of Skye and the Hebrides as you make your way towards Eilean Donan Castle, a picture-perfect edifice perched on a junction of 3 gorgeous lakes. After your visit to the castle, travel along the shores of Loch Ness en route to Inverness, where you will be dropped off by approximately 19:30.

Was a great tour! Incredible value for money and Kevin was a great tour guide. Lots of lovely stops at viewpoints and due to Covid and being relatively off-season it was a small group too so no rushing.

Most enjoyable journey and we both loved the places we visited the views were fantastic and Willie our guide was very knowledgable and told us some amazing stories
