Scotland: Highlands and Hebrides

May 4–17, 2018

Join native Scot Iain MacLeod for a very personal, small-group tour of Scotland’s Hebrides and Highlands. Iain is a former HMANA Board member and is offering SIX places on this tour for HMANA members.

Iain is holding up to 6 spots open for HMANA members, but please sign up quickly as his trips fill fast. After November 1, those spots will no longer be held open.

This 13-day trip will explore the cultural and natural history of the spectacular Scottish Highlands and Islands. Fly from Boston to Glasgow and then head to the Spey Valley and spend six nights at the Rowan Tree Hotel near Aviemore. Visit lochs and ancient forests and the shores of the Moray Firth, including a day trip to the Black Isle, Cromarty, Loch Ness and even Balmoral Castle. The second part of the trip is on the lovely island of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. Stay five nights at Tiroran House Hotel (voted best Country House Hotel, 2013 and 2014). The spectacular loch-side setting and beautiful gardens make this a memorable location. Day trips will include a boat excursion to the Treshnish Isles for lunch among the Puffins and a chance to explore Fingal’s Cave on Staffa. Visit the beautiful village of Tobermory and take a day trip to Iona and tour of the ancient Abbey. Wildlife highlights include White-tailed and Golden Eagles, Otters, Seals, and Red Deer.

All-inclusive cost includes hotel accommodations, all meals, round-trip airfare from Boston to Glasgow,* van transportation in Scotland, ferry and boat trips and admission fees to nature reserves and other destinations listed on the itinerary.
