Thursday We head north to our overnight hotel in Gretna Green and we arrive in time for you to have a look around the famous sights in this historic town. Our hotel is the 3 star Gretna Hall Hotel.
Friday We pass Glasgow and make a stop at the Loch Lomond Shores, with shops, eating options and walks on the banks of the loch. Great views all the way from here as we travel along the banks of Loch Lomond and then through wonderful Highland scenery, including Ben Nevis, to our base for 3 nights, Fort William.
Saturday We board the Jacobite Steam Train for a 2 hour single journey on what is regarded as one of the World’s greatest rail journeys to Mallaig. This was the route used by the Hogwarts Express and there are views of the mighty Ben Nevis, Loch Morar and over the famous 21-arch Glenfinnan Viaduct. A truly magical experience and we have free time in Mallaig before our return by coach to the hotel.
Sunday To Fort Augustus, a lovely town where the Caledonian Canal meets Loch Ness. Following free time we board our boat for a wonderfully relaxing cruise on Loch Ness with stunning views of Urquhart Castle and possibly Nessie!
Monday More Highland scenery as we head south via the Cairngorms National Park. We make a lunchtime stop in Pitlochry with its clear sparkling air, beautiful scenery and rich clan history. Our overnight hotel is in Gretna Green again.
Tuesday We return home.
