A wonderful Scottish Highlands tour with spectacular scenery, a memorable rail journey and a chance to see dolphins!  We start with a memorable trip on one of the world’s most scenic rail journeys on the Kyle Line, the ‘Great Highland Railway Journey’. The train weaves its way through the Highlands and down to the Kyle of Lochalsh, close to the Isle of Skye. Crystal clear lochs mirror the forests and mountains on this wonderful journey. The views from the carriage windows are worth the fare alone.  Enjoy a wonderful circular tour of Wester Ross to the harbour village of Gairloch and Inverewe Garden, a historic botanical garden famous for its exotic plants and one of the most beautiful gardens in Scotland. Finally, experience an unforgettable boat cruise on the Moray Firth to see the world’s most northerly population of Bottlenose Dolphins, along with other marine wildlife including seals and otters.
