    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at a central location in Inverness, then board a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the trip to Kinlochewe and the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve, the oldest national nature reserve in Britain.

    Upon arrival, take in the stark line of Beinn Eighe Ridge, then continue to Loch Maree, an island-dotted freshwater loch that’s home to a population of golden eagles. Follow a dramatic route to the villages of Torridon and Shieldaig, with spectacular views from the coach.

    Take a break for lunch in Applecross—this tour doesn’t include meals, but the guide can help you find the perfect place to eat. Following your lunch break, meet back up with the guide for the trip to Eilean Donan Castle, passing views of the Isle of Skye and the Inner Hebrides. Enjoy ample time to explore the picturesque castle, whose dramatic history includes clan fighting, executions, and a series of Jacobite Risings (castle entrance fees own expense, roughly £7.50).

    This full-day tour concludes with the return trip to Inverness, and drop-off at the original departure point.
