The perfect companion on a journey through the Scottish Highlands?
There can be only one.
- The challenging route along spectacular roads through the majestic scenery of the Scottish Highlands
- A visit to the most famous Scottish castle ruins at Eilean Donan
- A guided tour of a whisky distillery
The Scottish Highlands have provided the impressive backdrop. For many a big Hollywood blockbuster, the most famous of which is the legendary Highlander series. In real life too, they offer a movielike setting with ancient castle ruins on the shores of deep blue lakes, endless lush valleys, jagged mountains, and an incredible coastline with hidden bays and tranquil fishing villages. All that’s missing is the main character. One that exudes the same genuine sense of boundless freedom as the landscape itself. There can be only one to play this starring role: a Porsche – with you at the wheel.
Individual travel to Edinburgh Airport, where you will be greeted and taken to the 5-Star Balmoral Hotel. In the evening, relax over a welcome dinner in preparation for the days ahead.
After breakfast, take to the wheel of your Porsche and set off for the West Highlands, passing plenty of moors on your way to the majestic Loch Lomond. Stop for lunch at Cameron House situated on the shores of Scotland’s largest lake.
The tour continues along the edge of the lake, following the road as it carves its way upwards in long, sweeping curves. The ideal terrain for anyone driving a Porsche – and for increasing your endorphin levels. Close to Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, is your destination for the night: Inverlochy Castle Hotel. Scotland’s finest luxury hotel. It is set in a fantastic location amidst the valleys, lakes and mountains of the West Highlands. The late afternoon is free to spend as you please – exploring this prestigious hotel, for example, or taking a trip to the lovely small town of Fort William. The pedestrian area here is perfect for discovering all that is typically Scottish.
Today, you can look forward to exploring perhaps the most beautiful, and certainly the most prominent road in Scotland, the A87. After around one hour, you arrive at your first destination: probably the bestknown castle in Scotland, Eilean Donan. After a leisurely break, it’s time for another highlight: the journey across the Bealach na Ba, the highest and most spectacular pass in Great Britain. This steep, singletrack road with tight hairpin bends and breathtaking views of the mountains on the Isle of Skye promises one thing above all else: unadulterated driving pleasure. Break for lunch at the cosy Applecross Inn on the peninsula of the same name where freshly-caught seafood and genuine Scottish hospitality abound. Take to the wheel again for the drive along the coast to your hotel for the night: the luxury Torridon Hotel. Idyllically situated on the shores of a lake, this establishment was named Scottish Hotel of the Year in 2011.
On the fourth day, you set off once again along winding roads through the awe-inspiring scenery of the Highlands. Continue along Scotland’s spectacular west coast until you reach the most northerly point of the tour: the Inver Lodge Hotel in Lochinver, situated in the heart of one of Europe’s last remaining unspoilt wildernesses. A trip to the tiny village of Achmelvich is well worthwhile. If you’re fortunate, you might even catch a glimpse of whales and dolphins in the bay.
Could there be anything more exhilarating than driving a Porsche through the incredible landscape of the Scottish Highlands? Possibly not. However, the country certainly has much more to offer than spectacular roads. In Tain you can take a guided tour of the Glenmorangie whisky distillery, responsible for producing one of the best Scottish single malts. After lunch, continue along the shores of the famous Loch Ness and on to your next port of call: the Boath House in Nairn. In the evening, round off an enjoyable day of driving and culture over dinner at the hotel’s award-winning restaurant.
Set off on another unforgettable day, heading south along the Malt Whisky Trail through the Spey Valley. More than half of all Scottish malt whisky distilleries can be found here. Break for lunch before crossing the Cairnwell Pass.
Upon arrival at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh, it’s unfortunately time to hand back the keys to your Porsche. However, you will be left with a wealth of memories to cherish for years to come.
A leisurely breakfast followed by the return transfer to Edinburgh Airport for your individual departure time. If you wish to extend your stay with a golfing break, for example, we will be happy to help.
