Although the neighbouring islands of Harris and Lewis share the same landmass they are distinctively different as we’ll discover.

Full Tour Itinerary
The mystery and majesty of Loch Ness come into view as we head west from Inverness. Don’t take your eyes off the loch in case Nessie pops her head up!
Admire the spectacular Great Glen as we drive towards snow-dusted Ben Nevis, the UK’s tallest mountain. Pausing at the viewpoint allows us to fully appreciate this natural wonder so don’t forget your camera. Turning into Fort William, the excitement mounts as we first set our eyes on the Jacobite Steam Train. Once used to whisk Harry, Ron and Hermione to school in the Harry Potter films, we sink into a plush seat on a vintage carriage as the guard blows his whistle and we embark on the journey of a lifetime.
Britain’s deepest loch and shortest river whizz by as the truly spectacular Glenfinnan Viaduct – also seen in Harry Potter – leaves a lasting impression, history coming to life as we pass the Glenfinnan Monument, marking the start of the 1745 Jacobite Uprising.
