Itinerary details

The Zetter Townhouse

2 nightsLondon

After arriving in London, you will spend two nights at The Zetter Townhouse, a melting pot of quirky knick-knacks and nifty sustainable gadgetry. With antique furniture, large sash windows and a personal selection of novels, cosy up with a book in the spacious rooms before leaving the homey hideaway to walk head first into the pulsing city of London.  In between gourmet pulled pork burgers in Farringdon’s gastropubs and cupping speciality coffee in Bloomsbury, brush up on your British history with a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London.

Inverlochy Castle Hotel

3 nightsFort William

Wake up to the realization that you are heading to the north of Scotland for an incredible three nights spent travelling the shoreline of Loch Ness, sampling world famous whiskys, and visiting Glenfinnan Viaduct, now known as the Harry Potter Bridge. Transferred via private car to the airport, you’ll take a short flight to the small airport in Inverness. When you land, collect your rental car, turn on the radio and start practising your colloquial Scottish phrases of ‘aye’ and ‘wee’.

Glenfinnan
A ten-minute drive from the airport, the historic Culloden Battlefield is the site of the bloody last battle between the Jacobite Rising and the English army. Freely walk around the field to stretch your legs and take in the breathtaking scenery of Inverness. Head west towards Loch Ness and hug the shoreline until you reach Fort William (1 ½ hours), keeping a sharp eye out for the national treasure, the Loch Ness Monster. In Fort William, you will stay in the majestic Inverlochy Castle Hotel, which is located on the banks of its own activity-rich loch. When you are not visiting Ben Nevis and Dalwhinnie Distillery or walking around the impressive foothills of the UK’s highest mountain, relax in the luxurious rooms and dive into the sumptuous cuisine in the grand Baronial mansion.

Claridge's

1 nightLondon

Once you have driven yourself back to Inverness Airport, having stopped to see the canal boats chug through the heart of the Caledonian Canal and the beautiful ruins of Urquhart Castle, drop the rental car off and catch your flight back to London for your final night in the dynamic capital. This time staying in the lap of luxury at Claridge’s, have dinner at the Michelin-starred Fera restaurant, which creates an imaginative twist on British classics, before taking in a show in the West End and ending your traditional trip with an expertly-crafted cocktail at the hotel’s Fumoir bar.
