From the rise of An Sgurr to the battlements of Kinloch Castle, from the clouds over Inverie to the sunset over the Isle of Skye, the far west of Scotland is a place filled with a beauty all its own. So if you’re looking for an outdoor vacation that is truly unique, the Knoydart Peninsula is the place for you.
Knoydart - Arrival in the Scottish Highlands
After arriving in Glasgow, you’ll ride the scenic West Highland Line—thought by many to be the most scenic railway line in all of Great Britain—until reaching its terminus at Mallaig, a major fishing port on the edge of the shores that line the Highlands. Here you’ll meet your group and guide and set out across the waters of Loch Nevis until reaching your accommodations at a rustic yet elegant resort in the very heart of the British wilderness, where the staff caters to your every wish and where the dining options are truly memorable. You’ll feel the overwhelming calm of seclusion wash over you as the sun sets over the long reach of Scottish loch, filled with wonder and awe at the undeniable grandeur of the Knoydart Peninsula.
