7 day Best of the West

Rating
You know that feeling when you meet an old friend at the train station? This is like that. You asked for it to come back, so here it is. Just different – the MaccyB’s 7 day tour. It’s a week that’ll involve hiking, beaches, castles, heroes, battles, old stuff, new stuff, islands, more islands, ferries, sunsets, boots, bikinis, jackets and the traditional sunblock! We’ll be staying in some of our favourite local haunts in Inverness, Skye and Oban but you’ll also get 2 nights in a traditional Black House when we venture way out west to explore the delights of Lewis and Harris. Add the magical Isle of Skye and a free day around Oban to explore the Gateway to the Isles at leisure, bringing back hairy coo safaris – what’s not to love, come on - join us.

Day 1

Passing the iconic Forth Bridge, our first day takes us up the spine of Scotland, taking in forests; tales of clan rebellions; visiting sites of ancient battles; introducing the majesty of the Highlands; taking a refreshing dook in Loch Ness & experiencing the Highland Capital Inverness for a night of music and banter.

Day 2

To Ullapool & the ferry to Stornoway; the delights of Lewis & Harris will materialise into view and where we’ll be staying for the next 2 nights in a traditional Black House Village. This should give us ample time to explore beaches & brochs, mountains & machair, hear of MacLeods & Morrisons, and best of all, to visit the Calanais Standing Stones

Day 4

Leaving the Outer Hebrides, it’s time to join in on the chorus of ‘Over the Sea to Skye’, where we’ll hike on one of the majestic hills of the Trotternish Ridge; visit the colourful harbour of the Capital Portree; hear tales of Warrior Queens & search for the secret of eternal youth & bask in the beauty of the Misty Isle.

Day 5

It may be farewell to Skye but not the West, as we float back to the mainland; passing more blazing white sandy beaches to Glenfinnan with its viaduct & Jacobites; taking in more awe inspiring mountains (including Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest) and hike in hauntingly beautiful Glencoe; before cruising along the spectacular coast line of Loch Linnhe to take shelter in Oban & it’s picturesque bay.

Day 6 - A free day to explore Oban, the Gateway to the Isles

Options galore: Pop over to Mull & Iona; explore Kerrera with its Castle & seafood; stroll along to Ganavan Sands; walk up to McCaig’s Tower; hit up the MacDougal strongholds of Dunstaffnage or Dunollie; take in the views from Pulpit Hill; head South to Kilmartin in search of more Standing Stones; chill out at the harbour & enjoy the bustle of this idyllic wee bay or just relax in the comfort & warmth of your charming hostel.

Day 7

We’ll start the day with a quest for ‘bovinicus caledonicus’ – a hairy coo safari like no other; continuing to Loch Awe with its Campbell castles & hollow mountain, Cruachan; on towards Rob Roy MacGregor’s last home, with a jaw dropping view at the end of an easy, if steep walk and for our final flourish we’ll visit Doune Castle on the way back to Edinburgh.

- St.Conan’s Kirk
- Kilchurn Castle
- Balquidder & Rob Roy Territory
