Think wide open spaces, breath taking views and the magic of the Highlands, a wonderful location for a tour.
Tour of Bonnie Scotland
Scotland is beautiful, and the Scottish Highlands are sublime. From the mountains to the sea and everything in between, visitors have been attracted to this corner of the world for many years. Here, you will find views that take your breath away, even more so as the seasons, weather and light change. No two visits can ever be alike.
The Highlands can be wreathed in mist and low clouds one moment, startlingly clear the next, only to have sharp showers arrive later in the day. There can be times when it is hard to tear yourself away from staring at the sky. The clouds speak a language of their own here, and, once you learn it, you can gain foresight into what the coming weather will be. It helps that these same clouds add another level to the beauty of the scenery.
The nation’s spirit, whisky, really is an important part of the culture in the Highlands. The water here is pure and makes the softest of drinks, while the care, attention to detail and sheer craftsmanship of those who produce single malts is legendary.
Despite the name, the Highlands could just as easily have been called the coastlands. Due to the ancient glaciers, powerful rivers and relentless seas, the shores here are fractured, long and ever-changing.
Falls of Dochart-Today the falls are bracketed by two interesting buildings. On the north side stands what used to be the Breadalane,Folklore Centre housed in what was originally called St Fillan’s Mill when it was built to harness the waters of the river in 1840. The Folklore Centre closed in 2011 and the Old Mill, as it is now known, has more recently become home to an arts and crafts shop. On the south side of the river is the Falls of Dochart Inn, which started life as a blacksmiths in the late 1800s before later being converted for use as a hotel.
The hollow mountain of Ben Cruahan- Here, a short distance from Oban, you can discover one of the hidden wonders of the Highlands. A power station buried one kilometre below the ground. At its centre lies a massive cavern, high enough to house the Tower of London! Here enormous turbines convert the power of water into electricity, available to you in your home at the flick of a switch.
Fort William- There’s much more to Fort William than simply bagging Ben Nevis – although climbing the tallest mountain in the UK is, of course, quite a feat. Think pubs that stock the finest Scotch whisky, daredevil mountain biking that attracts World Cup aficionados each year, loch-side wanders and even trips aboard the steam train that took Harry to Hogwarts. It really is quite a town.
