Starting near the highest mountain in Britain, Ben Nevis, it visits Britain’s most westerly mainland railway station, Arisaig; passes close by the deepest freshwater loch in Britain, Loch Morar and the shortest river in Britain, River Morar, finally arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis!

Fingals Cave Puffins & Whale Watching

A fantastic day out showcasing some iconic and not to be missed sights on the West coast of Scotland.  All are easily completed in a one day boat trip which will take your breath away.

Puffins are some of the most tame and adorable species of Scottish birds and they are plentiful on Staffa from May to July.  You can sit amongst them and enjoy their endeerong antics off the cliffs of Staffa.  Staffa is also the rock which houses the famous “Fingals Cave”  The inspiration for the wonferful Mendelssohn overture written in 1829.  Basking Sharksare the largest of all the shark species but completely harmless, feeding on plankton which they filter through their ever open mouths as they swim along.  They can easily be sighted on both outward and return journeys on this magical trip.

Adelphi Distillery

Our new and only distillery on Ardnamurchan at Glenborrodale.

The Adelphi Distillery visitor centre is due to open in July and whisky production is due to begin very soon.

It promises to be a great attraction for visitors and a great day out.
