This morning we set off for a scenic tour of the west coast. Heading west from Garve we travel via Loch Maree to Gairloch for a comfort stop at the harbour of this little fishing village. We continue north to the award-winning botanical Inverewe Gardens. Discover the story of a father and daughter who created a Lochside garden amid a barren wilderness. It is full of amazing flora, not normally seen in the UK. Finally, we follow the route of the famous 'North Coast Route' along the coast back to Ullapool, marvelling at the rugged landscape which changes dramatically from turn to turn.

Day 6

Today, we depart Ullapool and head south again making our first stop at the wonderful Falls of Shin and Visitor Centre, one of the best-known sights in the area. Although not particularly high, the falls have great power and salmon can often be seen attempting to leap them in the summer. We then move south to the popular destination of Inverness, where we spend some time at leisure exploring and have time to purchase lunch before continuing our journey through the Cairngorms National Park to our home for the next two nights, picturesque Pitlochry staying at the Fisher's Hotel.
