Romantic Journeys of Scotland

This tour offers the opportunity of seeing Scotland at its best and also includes the railway which is described as “one of the Great Railway Journeys of the World.

Monday to Thursday

During your stay in Newtonmore the following
excursions are included:
Grantown-on-Spey, Aviemore and Newtonmore
– We make our way to Grantown-on-Spey, a
traditional Highland town on the River Spey on
the northern edge of the Cairngorms National
Park, a beautiful charming place with plenty to
see and do. We then make our way to Aviemore
for free time before we return to Newtonmore
where the remainder of the day is yours to
explore. Maybe visit the Highland Folk Museum
which is within walking distance of the hotel.
Kyle of Lochalsh – We travel north into the
Highland capital, Inverness. Here we join the
Scotrail train for one of the Great Railway
Journeys of the World – the line to Kyle of
Lochalsh. The route takes us through some of the
best scenery in the country, skirting lochs and
passing remote villages. After a break in Kyle of
Lochalsh we enjoy the return ride, this time by
road, back to the hotel.
Fort William, Glenfinnan and Mallaig – This
excursion takes us south west along the shore of
Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort
William. Here we have another train journey, this
time on the celebrated West Highland Line to
Mallaig. This spectacular line passes hidden
lochs and inlets, silver sands, and crosses the
magnificent Glenfinnan viaduct on its way west.
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 and rejoin the coach for the ride
back to Newtonmore.
Loch Ness Cruise – Loch Ness is our destination
today. We travel through unspoilt scenery past
Loch Mhor and along Stratherrick to Fort
Augustus. Whilst here we have time to obtain
lunch and we enjoy a cruise, with commentary,
on Loch Ness on board ‘The Royal Scot’. Later we
leave Fort Augustus and head north overlooking
the loch towards Inverness before heading back
to Newtonmore.


We leave Newtonmore and the Highlands
to retrace our steps south towards Northern
England for our overnight stop with dinner, bed
and breakfast.


After breakfast we leave and continue
on our way home.
