Tour Summary

Scotland's Northern Edge
5 day/4 night

This fascinating tour of the Far North takes us to Inverness then through Lairg then along the banks of Loch Shin to reach Kinlochbervie for a two-night stay. Next day board a ferry at Tarbet for a cruise to visit Handa Island, a sea bird nature reserve. There's no human activity here, but 1000s of fulmars, razorbills and puffins call it home.  Our tour heads east to Thurso, for a further 2-night stay and along the way we visit Smoo Cave and enjoy incredible coastal panoramas. Spend a full day exploring more northern treasures including the dramatic sea cliffs at Duncansby Head and the Castle of Mey, HM The Queen Mother's beloved Highland home.
