What's the perfect companion on a journey through the Scottish Highlands?
There can be only one.
The Scottish Highlands have many impressive features to offer – much more than merely serving as a stunning backdrop for Hollywood films like Highlander. They are waiting to be discovered by visitors. The ancient castle ruins standing vigil by deep blue lakes, the innumerable green valleys and barren peaks or the unique coastline dotted with hidden bays and quiet fishing villages are far more spectacular in reality than on a cinema screen. The only missing element is a suitable travel companion, one that conveys the feeling of boundless freedom as authentically as the countryside itself. There can be only one – and that one is a Porsche with you as the explorer behind the wheel.
Upon arrival at Edinburgh Airport, you will be greeted and taken to the five-star Balmoral Hotel. You will spend your evening relaxing over a welcome dinner which will get you into the mood for the days ahead.
After breakfast your Porsche will be ready and waiting to set off for the Western Highlands and past romantic moors on your way to the majestic Loch Lomond – Scotland's largest lake. Stop for lunch at the elegant Cameron House situated directly on the water's edge. The tour continues along the banks of the lake, following the road as it curves its way upwards in long, serpentine bends, much to the delight of your Porsche as well as your adrenaline levels. Your accommodation for the night is close by to Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis: Inverlochy Castle Hotel, Scotland’s finest luxury hotel, which is nestled in the breathtaking setting of the West Highland glens, lochs and mountains. The afternoon is free to do as you wish. The stately edifice lends itself perfectly to exploring or enjoying a walk through magnificent natural beauty outside.
As the day unfolds you will get to discover Scotland's possibly most beautiful – but doubtlessly its most prominent – road, the A87. The first destination after about an hour's drive is the famous Eilean Donan Castle, where a guided tour awaits you. After a nice long break, the next highlight follows: a drive over the Bealach na Bà, an especially high and spectacular mountain pass, which is a steep, single-track road with tight hairpin bends that promises one thing above all else: a real driving thrill. Savour a delicious lunch made with local produce and fish from the bay and the warm hospitality at the cosy Applecross Inn on the Applecross Peninsula. Back behind the wheel of your Porsche, your route along the coast takes you to your evening accommodation: the luxury Torridon Hotel, idyllically situated on the lake shore.
The day will entail further winding roads surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of the Highlands. Again a culinary highlight awaits you at midday: a wonderful meal at the Arch Inn. After lunch you will continue your journey along Scotland’s spectacular west coast until you reach the most northerly point of the tour: the Inver Lodge Hotel in Lochinver, set in the heart ofone of Europe’s last remaining areas of unspoilt wildernesses. Relax over dinner at the hotel's restaurant Chez Roux, the perfect place to conclude an eventful day full of fascinating impressions and driving pleasure, all whilst perusing the menu and enjoying the ocean views.
The matchless beauty of the Scottish Highlandsand you are driving through it in a Porsche.Can anything equal that? Not very likely –however, the country has a lot more to offer than impressive roads.After lunch you are scheduled to tour the Dalmore whisky distillery in Alness.Subsequently you steer course via the famous Loch Ness to your accommodation for the night: the Rocpool Reserve Hotel in Inverness. You can then enjoy dinner with the other group members at the hotel's restaurant.The day's events are finished off most fittingly with a leisurely whisky tasting session,a worthy conclusion to a day full of culturally enriching experiences and sheer driving enjoyment.
It sounds like a grand adventure and will also make connoisseurs' hearts leap for joy.The day's route first takes you in a southerly direction along the Malt Whisky Trail through Spey Valley.More than half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries are located here.After lunch it's off to traverse Cairnwell Pass for the last leg of the tour.Upon arrival at The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, it’s unfortunately time to give up the keys to your Porsche.However, you will be left with a wealth of memories to cherish for years to come.Back in the heart of Edinburgh, enough time remains for a leisurely group dinner to reminisce about the many diverse impressions of the past few days and perhaps start planning your next Porsche tour.
After a leisurely breakfast, you will be driven to Edinburgh airport in good time for your departure.
