Excursions

NORTH COAST 500 (packed lunch)

Enjoy the stunning changing scenery of the North Coast 500 today as we journey through some of Scotland’s most beautiful and remote landscapes. Along by Lairg which is perched at the mouth of Loch Shin we travel by Altnaharra and Loch Loyal under the shadow of Ben Loyal, the Queen of Scottish Mountains, until we reach the Kyle of Tongue, a shallow sea loch in Sutherland featuring a rocky coastline and unforgettable views. By the scenic Loch Eriboll and our lunch stop in Durness where you can explore the magnificent Smoo Cave - a dramatic sea cave set in the Cliffside. Or why not experience a walk along the golden sands of Sango Bay which could be mistaken for any Caribbean beach.  We then join the coach as we return along the North Coast 500 route down the coastal road by beautiful sea lochs and over the now famous photographic Kylesku Bridge, with a picture stop at the 15th century ruins of Ardvreck Castle. We return to the hotel in the evening to enjoy our delicious meal in the restaurant.
