The Cairngorm National Park is an extensive area of outstanding natural beauty. At approximately 1,400 square miles this makes it the largest National Park in Great Britain. It is a land dominated by rock and stream, river and mountain, history and heritage. Welcome to a region of contrast, a land of forest and loch, with all the amenities and entertainments of a modern holiday centre in this truly unspoilt part of the world. When the winter snow is melting, the mountains and glens take on a new lease of life. The return of the Osprey to the Highlands heralds the arrival of warmer days. Now summer, the heart of the year, with its endless days, everchanging colours and staggering scenery provides a perfect backdrop for many outdoor activities.

Wednesday 25th May

In a change to our advertised itinerary. This morning please board your coach for a visit to Loch Ness. Cruise the Loch and view the castle on this one-hour voyage across the deepest, mysterious waters of Loch Ness. From here, treat those peepers – and your camera – to the breathtaking sight of the historic Urquhart Castle. This afternoon we will visit Inverness. Much like Loch Ness, enjoying Inverness is an activity in itself. As a small city Inverness is best enjoyed on foot. For a gentle afternoon stroll you can easily walk the length of the town. One of the best places for a wander are the Ness Islands. Found on the River Ness, they are a scenic spot to enjoy all year round. See if you can spot the wooden Nessie statue!

Thursday 26th May

After breakfast please join your driver for a trip on the Jacobite Steam Railway. Described as the greatest railway journey in the world, this 84 mile round trip takes you past a list of impressive extremes. Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain's most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis! The end of the line, Mallaig was founded during the 1840s when the owner of the North Morar Estate, Lord Lovat, divided up the farm on the coast here into a series of parcels of land and encouraged his tenants living around Loch Morar and Loch Nevis to resettle in what became Mallaig and establish a fishing village. Here we will have free time before returning to the

Friday

Say a fond farewell to your hosts as we travel back to Lincolnshire, with comfort stops on the way.

The Duke of Gordon Hotel***

 

With origins in the eighteenth century the hotel was originally built as a stopover for passengers travelling by stage coach along the old A9 to Inverness and the North of Scotland. The facilities and atmosphere experienced in the hotel together with the hospitality and welcome extended by the staff make the Duke Of Gordon the ideal place to stay when visiting the Highlands. The hotel is honoured that it is used as a base by the Macpherson Clan when clan members from all over the world visit the Highlands every year for their international gathering at the Duke. The Hotel prides itself on its restaurant and excellence of cuisine. The experience of dining in the elegance of the impressive Balmoral Restaurant with its heavily corniced ceilings and Peddie murals depicting Scottish Highland history and local scenes of great natural beauty is not one easily forgotten.
