    Our first journey will be along the Kyle Line, travelling between Dingwall and the Kyle of Lochalsh. This excellent route has been featured on Michael Palin’s ‘Great Railway Journeys of the World’ and is surrounded by dramatic scenery. 

    Next, we’ll board the Strathspey Steam Railway and will seemingly step back in time as we experience rail travel in times gone by. This world-famous railway offers up an excellent chance to admire the beautiful countryside and to take a ride on a vintage train. After our journey, we’ll take a scenic drive through the wonderful Cairngorms to see even more splendid scenery. 


    Please note: Departures from the South West and South East region, these holidays include overnight stays on outbound and return journeys.

    Peacefully set in its own grounds with lovely views over the colourful village square which is just steps away, this chateau style hotel's traditional features have been carefully retained to strike just the right Highland note! A warm welcoming feeling comes as much from its friendly staff as from the fine wood panelled public rooms which have been carefully preserved. Strathpeffer is an attractive Highland spa resort with fabulous Victorian architecture. The massive peak of Ben Wyvis is the backdrop to this charming village. It's a perfect base from which to explore Scotland's dramatic Northern Highlands - mountainous countryside, sparkling streams, waterfalls and golden shores.
