The Romance and Splendour of the Highlands

Touring the Highlands of Scotland is not a journey, it is an experience. Our tours guide you through some of the most awesome scenery imaginable with views so dramatic as to cause goose pimples on the skin.

If we had been in Ancient Greece it would be easy to imagine the Gods sitting astride the earth with hammer and chisel creating the most magnificent terraced and chiselled mountains. In places the minds eye could envisage volcanoes blasting out rocks and boulders spewing them all over the heath lands.

The land is wild, rugged and untamed, majestic mountains rise straight from the sea, moors give way to lochs and forest, woodland edges the roadway making tunnels of dappled light, cascading waterfalls gouge deep crevasses in the hillsides where foothills have evolved into pyramids.

It is easy in this mystical place to let the imagination run riot, see a distant train running on the track as a caterpillar, or the island of trees in the middle of the lock as a ship, and the dying remains of a tree as deer antlers.

The drama of the landscape is intensified when shrouded in mist, the heads of the mountain peaks are so high that they rise out of the clouds leaving the vapour clinging to their torsos like necklaces of cotton wool, the still waters of the lochs at their feet reflecting a breathtaking mirror image.
