Day one

Fly to Edinburgh to meet your Newmarket tour manager and head to your hotel in Carrbridge. We'll stop in Pitlochry en route, and after check-in, you'll be free to relax and enjoy the rest of the afternoon.

Day two

Discover the 'Malt Whisky Trail' - a 70 mile route through glens and rolling hills - and sample a 'wee dram' at one of the whisky distilleries, today. We'll also visit the Speyside Heather Centre (entrance payable locally), and Grantown-on-Spey to explore its Georgian and Victorian architecture, shops and award-winning museum, before returning to our hotel for dinner.

Day three

Find out if the legend is true as we visit Loch Ness. Visit the Caledonian Canal Heritage and Clansman centre for an insight into the history of the canal and clan life, or take an optional hour-long cruise on the Loch aboard the Royal Scot. We'll also stop at the Loch Ness exhibition centre before continuing to Inverness, where you'll be free to shop and sightsee.

Day four

The Isle of Skye welcomes us today, after a journey past gentle countryside, wild mountains and sparkling lochs. We'll explore the main town, Portree, with its white- and colour-washed buildings set around the harbour, before arriving at our hotel for dinner.

Day five

This morning we cross to the mainland and head for Ayrshire - a long, but scenic journey. Highlights include travelling through Glencoe, over desolate Rannoch Moor and a drive alongside beauiful Loch Lomond. We should arrive at the Menzies hotel, Irvine by late afternoon.

Day six

Today we'll take a short ferry ride to the Isle of Arran - known as 'Scotland in Miniature'. Explore its largest town, Brodick, and perhaps have an early lunch, before we take in the rest of the island - from the ruins of Lochranza castle to the villages of the south.

Day seven

Bid farewell to Scotland and, stopping en route in Edinburgh for some last-minute shopping and sightseeing, return to the airport to board your flight home.
