Looking for an extended tour of the Scottish Highlands and Skye

This is a question we are often asked to help with as whilst there seems to be plenty of 3 day Loch Ness, Scottish Highland and Isle of Skye tours, there a very few that also included the stunning Far North

Well we have found an outstanding small group tour and posted details below

Here is some more information on this lessor known and a bit unfairly overlooked, gem at the North West Corner of Scotland

Loch Assynt

Assynt is a particularly historic part of the northern Highlands, but at this one location towards the eastern end of Loch Assynt you will find a number of historic monuments

Situated on a peninsula is Ardvreck Castle. Built by the MacLeods of Assynt towards the end of the fifteenth century, Ardvreck was originally a simple rectangular structure, but over the years it was improved with the addition of a tower and vaulted cellars. In 1650 following the Battle of Carbisdale the Laird of Assynt captured and imprisoned John Graham, Marquis of Montrose. He was held at the castle until he could be handed over to Cromwell’s supporters. He was executed soon after. The MacLeods lost ownership of the castle following a two week long seige by the MacKenzies of Wester Ross in 1672. The castle was struck by lightning in 1795 and much of the building was destroyed
