The drive to the West Coast takes us down almost the entire length of Loch Ness and through some incredible countryside. Arriving in the vicinity of Eilean Donan Castle we will then go offroad with a scenic walk along the opposite side of the bay to enable us to see the castle and Skye bridge from a more unusual perspective.
Then from here we travel to Glen Elg with it's ancient Broughs and absolutely stunning scenery and onto a remote old town at the Loch which allows you to visualise what life was like for the villagers one hundred years ago. The village is wonderfully peaceful and has regular visits from wild deer, that you can feed by hand.
On the route back we will be stopping at Eilean Donan Castle to investigate inside more fully. We will then return back to Moray through yet another absolutely beautiful valley.
N.B. This tour can be combined with the "West Coast 1" tour to make a two day trip. There is accommodation available for all levels of comfort, from camping or dormitories to a hotel room.
