Overview

The sprawling Cairngorms National Park covers an area twice the size of the Lake District and is the perfect place to get away from it all. A breathtaking area of natural beauty, it is home to mountains, woodland trails, sparkling lochs, distilleries and welcoming villages. Watch out for a wealth of wildlife such as the ospreys and eagles that grace the skies above ancient forests. Our unforgettable sightseeing takes in a trip on the enchanting Strathspey Steam Railway to popular Aviemore, home to attractions such as the Cairngorm Brewery Company and Loch-an-Eilein Pottery. We also ride the legendary West Highland Line to the fascinating port of Mallaig. A treat to cherish will be our cruise on the Crannog Cruise.

Your Excursions

Lovely Loch Linnhe Cruise

We journey to Fort William to board the Souter Lass for a sightseeing cruise on Loch Linnhe, enhanced by fascinating commentary from the skipper. Feast your eyes on the soaring peaks of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, enjoy the stunning scenery of Lochaber and watch out for wildlife such as porpoises, seals and perhaps even a golden eagle. The Souter Lass has a comfortable, all weather viewing lounge where you’ll find a bar selling hot and cold drinks.

Strathspey Steam Railway & Aviemore
Our second excursion is a nostalgic trip on the Strathspey Steam Railway as we journey almost ten miles through unspoilt Highland scenery to awe inspiring Aviemore, where we enjoy free time to explore, this popular town in the Cairngorms National Park.

West Highland Line & Mallaig
Our final trip takes us over forty miles along the dramatic West Highland Line to Mallaig, overlooking the Isle of Skye. We cross the spectacular multi-arched Glenfinnan Viaduct and rumble past the white sands of Morar. Mallaig contains a host of attractions such as the Heritage Centre and a genuine kipper smokery.
