Trace the shores of Loch Linnhe and join the Caledonian Canal heading north east on quiet forest paths to reach the tiny hamlet of Gairlochy where you’ll meet your driver for a private transfer to your accommodation (30 min).

Delight in the scenic drive along Loch Lochy to reach Glengarry Castle Hotel north of Laggan. This traditional country hotel stands alone in a remote area of the glen.  Settle into your room and savor a hearty highland dinner.   

Please see your personalised accommodation sheet for your transfer details.
