From Ben Nevis to Loch Lomond and Glencoe, this wonderful 2021 tour takes in some of Scotland’s most magnificent mountains, pretty villages and impressive castles at a beautiful time of year

The wild and remote landscapes of Scotland have been inspiring travellers for centuries and its panoramic views are almost as legendary as the country's famous single malts.

On this exclusive four-day break, readers will fly to Edinburgh and enjoy a guided tour of Scotland's elegant capital including its iconic castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, once frequented by Mary, Queen of Scots and now Her Majesty The Queen's official residence in Scotland.

You'll be based in The Trossachs, Rob Roy MacGregor's stomping ground near Loch Lomond, for three nights on a half-board basis, with time to explore the largest freshwater lake in Britain. Your trip also includes a chance to admire Britain's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, cross the barren expanse of Rannoch Moor and drive through Glencoe, a hauntingly beautiful valley sculpted by the last ice age.

You'll see the scenic West Highland coastline on a spectacular drive from Fort William to Oban, and stop in the pretty village of Inveraray on the shores of Loch Fyne, the ancestral seat of the Dukes of Argyll. Visits to historic Stirling Castle and Scone Palace are also included in the trip, as is the opportunity to meet some fabulous Highland cows during a trip to the Trossachs Woollen Mill.

Cosy former coaching inn by Loch Lomond

Dating back to the late 1700's, The Winnock has offered lodging to weary travellers passing through Loch Lomond and the Trossachs areas, for centuries. Formerly a coaching inn, The Winnock hotel has been lovingly restored and tastefully extended to its present day form. Offering 73 bedrooms, cosy lounges; many with open log fires, a characterful restaurant, function room and public lounge bar, the hotel has many things in common with its historic counterpart with one striking similarity - friendly, welcoming service. Guests take time to savour the fine food, wines, ales & whiskies on offer at the Merlin Restaurant and Ptarmigan bar, or in the light and airy Conservatory or snuggled up by a log fire.
