Including 2 Gala Dinners
Ashore on Rum, discover Sir George Bullough's Kinloch Castle, built as a hunting lodge in the headier Edwardian era and now an iconic symbol of its day. Onwards to Eigg, stroll beneath the An Sgurr ridge, dominating the skyline for miles around.
Cruise Loch Nevis to Inverie in the wild isolation of Knoydart, still accessible only by boat. Through the more forbidding reaches of Loch Hourn, Hebridean Princess heads for Kyle of Lochalsh. Like a living painting, Plockton nestles around a sheltered, palm-fringed bay of Loch Carron, where strolls are pleasant in every season, worlds away from the rugged shores of Ardnarmurchan cruised in the afternoon.
Amble by Loch a' Choire, taking in the spectacular views to Loch Linnhe and the Hills of Appin, and sail onwards to Kerrera, stronghold of the McDougalls, for more refreshing walks. Relish the seclusion of privately owned Eriska, and make use of the Island and hotel's facilities which include a spa and a 9 hole golf course. Lush Lismore is peaceful from tiny St Moluag's Church to the Heritage Centre, where the 19th century Cottar's Cottage encapsulates island life in its day. From Fort William, wonder at the snow-topped Nevis range on a breathtaking ride by gondola to the summit of Aonach Mòr.
Experience the sheer majesty of Glen Coe, stage of the MacDonald massacre in 1692, a tragic tale depicted at the fascinating Glencoe Visitor Centre in an unforgettable last afternoon.
