Highlands and Islands

A Discovery Tour of Scotland's Highlands and Islands introduces you to some of this countries most breath-taking scenery, it's rich culture, heritage and turbulent history. Drive through Britain's largest National Park, the Cairngorms and in the shadow of it's highest mountain, Ben Nevis. You will be in awe of this region's majestic landscapes, from Glencoe to wild Atlantic waves and the powder-white beaches of Uist and Harris to the breathtaking Cuillin Ridge.

Not only is stunning scenery on the agenda but you can also discover the unique character of each island, see a plethora of romantic castles, and immerse yourself in the Gaelic culture. The Callanish Stones is a real highlight and Scotland's most magnificent Neolithic site. When exploring the Culloden Battlefield it is easy to imagine (as it really evokes some powerful emotions) that here in 1745, a Jacobite Rising occured and a harrowing battle ensued. Visit whisky distilleries, ancient architecture and treat yourself to some famous Harris Tweed.

Macs Adventure has a number of tours on offer in this category of Discovery Tours. Perhaps take a leisurely exploration on our Outer Hebrides Island Hopscotch or drive the Highlights, adding the Isle of Skye if you wish. Most of all though you can discover genuine solitude here within Scotland's natural wonders.
