This is perhaps the most beautiful road that you will ever travel on in Scotland, winding its way through the great mountain passes of the western highlands, past the Five Sisters of Kintail with tremendous views towards the Cuillin Mountains of Skye. Stop 5 miles outside of Invergarry at the viewpoint to see Loch Garry – famously nicknamed the “map of Scotland.” - this is the main picture at the top of our website page.

Which is definitely worth walking round and looking through the gardens – more rustic than Eileen Donan and gives you a feel of how life was.

A drive along Loch Ness & a walk in Glen Affric – perhaps the most beautiful Glen in Scotland and a hidden gem known by few. Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness is great and a must visit, though beware as it gets very busy with tourists.

 

Spean Bridge & Newtonmore

Take a drive to Spean Bridge, hang a left and across to Newtonmore – lovely drive and passes the Estate used in the Monarch of the Glen TV programme. If you go onto Aviemore have lunch in the Mountain Café – the pancake stack is to die for and the milkshakes are heaven!
