Teachers' Travel              HF Holidays



On this Discovery Tour we stay for seven nights at atmospheric Glen Coe overlooking Loch Leven with stunning views.  With our expert guide we explore the Highlands with its magnificent scenery and interesting sites. The Highland region was the site of many battles. We hear about the clan warfare between Campbells and MacDonalds and follow in the steps of Bonnie Prince Charlie. In the evening our entertainment might have a little Scottish country dancing or perhaps you would prefer to relax and sample a wee dram of whisky.

  • Spectacular Highland glens such as Glen Coe, Glen Roy and Glen Shiel 
  • Inveraray, with plenty of time to explore its French-style castle and old jail
