Enjoy a full day travelling the western North Coast 500 today. Also known as ‘Scotland’s Route 66’ this scenic journey will be something to remember as you travel by some magnificent beaches and seascapes by Brora and Helmsdale before arriving in Thurso. The coach will then take you to a stop in John O’Groats where you can enjoy the views over to Stroma & Orkney and browse the gift shops. We then travel back along the beautiful coastal trail arriving in Strathpeffer in time for your dinner.



Today we explore the other side of the NC500 route and travel the spectacular journey through the North Highlands to Ullapool. Enjoy the scenery as you pass through the glens before being welcomed with the sight of Loch Broom and there is time to explore Ullapool and have some lunch too.  Join the coach again and travel through the beautiful mountains and past clear lochs before arriving in the market town of Dingwall on our way back to the hotel.



Enjoy a morning to yourself to explore the lovely seaside town of Dornoch where can relax on the beach or hit the shops. In the afternoon we take a trip to visit Dunrobin Castle. Dating back to the 1300’s, the mighty Dunrobin Castle sits on a high terrace overlooking the North Sea, and you will have plenty of time here to enjoy the stunning interior rooms and gardens this morning. We also have a stop in Golpsie where you can enjoy a walk through the old town or on the beautiful beach before returning to the hotel.



Situated in idyllic woodland in the Victorian spa town of Strathpeffer in the shadow of its namesake mountain the Ben Wyvis Hotel is a great base for exploring the Scottish Highlands.  The Ben Wyvis Hotel is a grand Victorian mansion full of character and charm and is complemented by the nature and adventure that sits on the doorstep. The hotel is surrounded by five acres of woodlands and landscaped mature gardens which are just as impressive as the building itself.

There is also a wealth of activities nearby such as walking, golf, fishing and shooting plus many more activities relative to the Cairngorms.  There is also a wide choice of castles, gardens and whisky distilleries nearby for those looking for history and culture. What we offer at Ben Wyvis is a homely place, where you can fall into one of our comfy beds in the dog-friendly guestrooms. So, if you are looking for a great place to stay in Strathpeffer, Ross-shire and are looking for traditional Scottish hospitality, then the Ben Wyvis is the perfect choice for your next break away in Scotland.
