Tuesday-Friday

• AVIEMORE & HIGHLAND WILDLIFE - We head for Aviemore with time to explore, enjoy the scenery and perhaps have a bite to eat. Later, we head to the Highland Wildlife Park, home to the famous Scottish Wildcats and other interesting animals, including its own safari drive.
• KYLE OF LOCHALSH - We head to Kyle of Lochalsh for a morning break before joining the Scotrail train for one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World - the Kyle line. The route takes us through some of the best scenery in the country.
• FORT WILLIAM AND MALLAIG - We journey along the shore of Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort William where we have another train journey, along the celebrated West Highland Line to Mallaig. Mallaig is a major fishing port and we have time to wander around the harbour and explore before we catch the train for the return journey to Fort William, where we rejoin the coach for the ride back to Kingussie.

The line takes us through spectacular scenery over the line’s summit at Slochd before descending into the Highland Capital, Inverness.
