Scenic Snapshorts of Scotland

Caledonian Hotel

8 days Half Board by Coach

Enjoy a wonderfully scenic journey of discovery through the rugged North West Highlands and the genteel glens of Speyside and Deeside, exploring the many faces and landscapes of Scotland in this new two centre holiday. Beginning on the East Coast we explore the landscapes of Deeside, so revered by Royalty, before crossing the tranquil Spey Valley to climb deep into the Highlands and the remote North-West shores. With contrasting scenery, memorable vistas, and
unforgettable coastlines, this holiday gives a snapshot of Scotland at its very finest.
