Take in the best of the history and beauty of the Scottish Highlands with visits to lovely Loch Maree and the fishing village of Ullapool whilst staying in the tourist hub of Gairloch. A highlight will be our day at Inverewe Estate & Gardens – a lush and colourful oasis perched on a peninsula on the shores of Loch Ewe. You’ll be staying at the Gairloch Hotel where many of you will be familiar with its new manager, Tommy Sutherland – formerly the popular manager at the Regent Hotel in Oban. With Tommy at the helm, you can be sure of great entertainment along with friendly hospitality.
Your Holiday Itinerary
Day One. From local joining points we make our way to Gairloch and check into our hotel.
Day Two. Look forward to a visit to Inverewe Estate, one of the most beautiful places in Scotland and an oasis of rare plants, vibrant colour and intriguing history. Dating from the mid-nineteenth century, these gardens have been carefully sculpted over time and the exotic plants are nurtured by warm currents from the Gulf Stream. The National Trust’s Inverewe House stands proudly at the heart of the gardens with each room offering a journey through time telling the inspiring story behind Inverewe.
Day Three. We enjoy a scenic outing to Loch Maree, the fourth largest freshwater loch in Scotland and home to over forty scattered islands. We also visit Plockton, the location for BBC TV's Hamish MacBeth.
Day Four. A morning visit to the picturesque fishing village of Ullapool on the shores of Loch Broom. The original section of the village is part of Thomas Telford’s design and you’ll find buildings dating back hundreds of years, cottages from its fishing heritage and quaint old churches.
Day Five. We head home after breakfast.Back to top
