Slow is no longer a bad thing in travel, and when it's combined with a Highland safari and a lodge with a conscience, Siobhán Norton luxuriates in it.Read more

About the tour
Soak up the spectacular natural majesty of some of Scotland's most scenic spots. We visit the idyllic Outer Hebrides and the ever-dramatic Highlands, and journey through some of the most spectacular Scottish scenery on the famous West Highland Line.
We meet in Glasgow, a city which has become one of Scotland's best tourist highlights. The striking architecture here delightfully represents the old beauty of the city, which contrasts against contemporary areas that showcase the modern-day revival of the industrial city. We spend the night here

Everything was great but one part of the trip entailed too long on a coach and an overnight should have been scheduled. On the last morning at Cabarfeidh there was no senior person, 3 coach tours and they ran out of gas...no hot food for breakfast and only at end was toast and tea brought and that was because the staff stepped up and were wonderful esp. Jack. Though not Great Rail's fault it should be investigated...the meals were not 4 star either. Perhaps some competition & another hotel used on occasion as the management seem to have become complacent.

If you had selected betterl hotels, as I mention below, then probably it would have gained an extra star! Accommodation is an important part of a holiday, i'm surprised I have to mention this!

Could write an essay but haven't time unfortunately

Well organised. Good hotels and a lovely group of people.
Mr R Theobald
Generally great hotels - loved the character of the one in Bara; a bit disappointed by the standard of the food in Glasgow. The Guide on the Islands was super - we would have liked a day or two to explore on our own, e.g. in Stornaway or simply to have a little more time to look closely at the Standing Stones, even being able to do some walking. We were concerned at the mobility issues of our party - it was rather a worry!
Mr R Dyke
The organisation was, as usual, very good, the hotels also were very well chosen. The weather played its part with sun most days which made photography easy with some great results.
