Fort William & The Highlands 4 Days - Croit Anna
Fort William, the “Outdoor Capital of the UK”, is not only an important tourist centre but also a splendid location from which to explore the magnificent Western Highlands. It is situated at the southern end of the Great Glen, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, beneath towering Ben Nevis, Britain's highest mountain. For those who do not feel quite up to the ascent of Ben Nevis, nearby Aonach Mor offers Britain's only alpine cable car, rising over 2000 feet to the Snowgoose restaurant, from where there are spectacular views of the Great Glen. The surrounding countryside has some of Britain’s most spectacular and romantic scenery and its torrid history has produced over 30 battlefields in the Lochaber area alone. As a touring centre, Fort William is unrivalled and our splendid excursion programme makes the best of this with coverage of many of the area's most interesting places.

Day 2 - Road to the Isles to Mallaig
We travel from Fort William to Mallaig on the A830, one of the most scenic roads in the world and known as the Road to the Isles. We stop at Glenfinnan, where we hope to see the famous Jacobite Steam train travel across the Glenfinnan Viaduct, as seen in the Harry Potter films. Our journey continues through several small villages, including Arsaig. We follow the shorelines of Loch Eil and Loch Eilt and pass through a series of glens, before taking in the silver sands of Morar and Loch Sheil. Our destination is Mallaig, a port in Lochabar, where you can watch the ferries going to and from the Scottish islands, enjoy some freshly caught seafood, or browse the craft shops, before returning and relaxing whilst enjoying the spectacular scenery on the famous A830 taking in the Silver Sands of Morar and then Loch Shiel./n
Day 3 - Half Day Fort Augustus
Enjoy a trip through some of the Highland's most spectacular scenery as we make our way along the banks of Loch Lochy and Loch Oich to reach Fort Augustus.
