During your stay in Newtonmore the following

for Aviemore where we take a break before
heading into the beautiful Glenmore Forest Park
on our way to the Cairngorms. Here we have the
opportunity, weather permitting, to take a ride
on the fantastic Cairngorm Mountain Railway,
taking us to the top in just 8 minutes. We can
have lunch in the Panoramic Restaurant and
admire the superb views. Alternatively lunch
break would be in Aviemore.
Kyle of Lochalsh - We travel north into the
Highland capital, Inverness. Here we join the
Scotrail train for one of the Great Railway
Journeys of the World - the line to Kyle of
Lochalsh. The route takes us through some of the
best scenery in the country, skirting lochs and
passing remote villages. After a break in Kyle of
Lochalsh we enjoy the return ride, this time by
road, back to the hotel.
Fort William, Glenfinnan and Mallaig - This
excursion takes us south west along the shore of
Loch Laggan and through Glen Spean to Fort
William. Here we have another train journey, this
time on the celebrated West Highland Line to
Mallaig. This spectacular line passes hidden lochs
and inlets, silver sands, and crosses the
magnificent Glenfinnan viaduct on its way west.
Mallaig is a major fishing port and we have time
to wander around the harbour and explore
before we catch the train for the return journey
to Fort William and rejoin the coach for the ride
back to Newtonmore.
Loch Ness Cruise - Loch Ness is our destination
today. We travel through unspoilt scenery past
Loch Mhor and along Stratherrick to Fort
Augustus. Whilst here we have time to obtain
lunch and we enjoy a cruise, with commentary,
on Loch Ness on board ‘The Royal Scot’. Later we
leave Fort Augustus and head north overlooking
the loch towards Inverness before heading back
to Newtonmore
