A few ideas of what to do in the area
The Isle of Skye & The Road to Skye
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
The Eilean Donan Castle – perhaps the most photographed and beautiful
castle in Scotland used in the famous Highlander movie. Worth stopping
here en-route to Skye for coffee, cakes and a tour of the castle.
Plockton – a beautiful small fishing village with
little craft shops, pubs and restaurants.
Applecross – take the adventurous road over the
Breachan Pass, a great bikers road that twists and turns over the mountains
with panoramic views over Skye and the Western Isles. Take lunch at the
Applecross Inn – great seafood !
On the Isle of Skye – good places to visit include
Talisker Distillery, take a tour and taste – its
a nice well looked after place with a good Highland Dram !
Dunvegan Castle 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.
Cuillin Mountain Range - a must visit, rugged and wild
Take the road to Armadale and drop into Claire Macdonald’s
Hotel called “Kinloch Lodge” for a beautiful afternoon tea
Take the car ferry across to Mallaig if you fancy driving
the loop and round to Fort William – ferries every hour in peak
Ben Nevis, The Nevis Range and Aanoch Mor are a must
however take a walk or drive down Glen Nevis and have lunch at the rustic
Ben Nevis Inn – great place and good ales !
Gondola Ride up the side of Ben Nevis – there is a cafe and restaurant
at the top and if its a clear day – its simply stunning up there.
Ben Nevis Whisky Distillery in Fort William is far better than it appears
outside & the people are very friendly indeed – worth a visit
From Fort William take the Jacobite Steam Train used
on ‘Harry Potter’ to Mallaig. Book early to avoid disappointment.
Beautiful scenery ands you get 2 hours to potter around Mallaig and grab
some lunch before the return journey – great for kids. The drive
across to Mallaig is very beautiful – stop at Glenfinnan as its
simply stunning and grab a coffee at the cafe there.
If it’s sunny - which happens more than you realise a day
on the Beach can be spent on the Silver sands of Morar -just
before Mallaig branch off to Moray and see some beautiful white beaches
if you fancy a paddle.
Ardnamurchan & Isle of Mull is a stunning day out
and a hidden treasure of the Highlands. Drive across to Kilchoan and leave
your car taking the passenger ferry to Mull. Great fun and lands in Tobermory
which is from the kids programme “Balamory.” Great shops,
pubs, food places, Tobermory Distillery which is the friendliest in Scotland
and also a chocolate shop !
Enjoy the stunning scenery of Ballachulish & Learn to Rock
or Ice Climb in Kinlochleven – great facility !
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.
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 !
