Suggested itinerary by coach

Day 1

Travel to Scotland

If you’re travelling a distance, ask about overnight stops.

Day 2

Forest Safari & Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery

We venture into the hills today on our Forest Safari. We transfer to four-wheel-drive vehicles (carrying approximately six people in each) for a one and a half hour journey to the high tops, travelling through forests, mountains and moors on private hill tracks with spectacular views at every turn. This is a great opportunity to engage with the wonders of the natural environment and experience the excitement of a 4WD safari into the hills to heights of nearly 2000 feet. Binoculars, wildlife identification sheets and hand-warmers are provided. In the afternoon we visit the nearby Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery for a tour and a tasting.

Day 3

Blair Castle and free time in Pitlochry

This morning we travel through the Pass of Killiecrankie, an impressive wooded gorge, to Blair Castle, the ancient seat of the Dukes and Earls of Atholl. We can arrange lunch at the castle before returning to Pitlochry for an afternoon at leisure.

Day 4

Highland Folk Museum and Cairngorm Reindeer Herd.

In the morning we travel to the Highland Folk Museum, a one mile long, 80-acre site, with live actors and restored buildings that help bring Highland history to life. In the afternoon we stop and meet the Cairngorm’s famous reindeers. Our trip includes the reindeer exhibition and a paddock visit with a hand feeding demonstration.
