Optional extension programme*

We have organized a 3-day extension programme to visit Skye, the Highlands, and Loch Ness, using our own private tour bus and guide.

Day 1 - Monday 30th June

Leave Edinburgh in the early morning and make our first stop at the picturesque conservation village of Luss, on the “Bonny, Bonny” banks of Loch Lomond.

Traveling north via Tyndrum, we pass over the atmospheric Rannoch Moor before enjoying time to walk and admire the dramatic Glencoe Valley, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan.

After lunch in the Fort William area, we pause for photos at Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, then stop to admire Glen Garry and the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range.

This day’s journey ends in the charming village of Portree, on the Isle of Skye, where we check into our hotel (where we will be spending two nights).

Day 2 - Tuesday 1st July

After breakfast, we depart Portree for a full day’s touring - options include a visit to Talisker distillery and Dunvegan Castle, or (if the group prefers) a trip to the island of Uig and a stop to visit the unique Black Houses, ancient dwellings of the Scottish Highlanders.

We continue our journey where we can view Duntulum Castle, take photos of Kilt Rock, and perhaps enjoy a walk at the Lealt Falls.

Our day ends with the opportunity to admire the Old Man of Storr, before we return to Portree.

Day 3 - Wednesday 2nd July

We commence our descent via the much-admired Eilean Donan Castle, backdrop for the movie “Highlander” (interior closed in winter), then move on to the pretty loch-side village of Fort Augustus for lunch and views of Loch Ness.

Our journey south continues over Laggan and the Grampian mountains with our last stop, for refreshments, in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, before returning to Edinburgh.

You will need to arrange to spend the night of Wednesday, 2nd July, in Edinburgh (or transfer to Glasgow if preferred).

*If you wish to take up this optional extension programme, please contact Alan Bates GL’02 as soon as possible:

Costs will depend on the number of people, but like to be around £400 per person, including two nights’ hotel accommodation.
