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, Loch Ness & around

Taken via private car to the airport, you’ll take a short flight to Inverness, where you will collect your rental car to enjoy one of the UK's most scenic drives. 

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. Back in the car, head west towards Loch Ness and hug the shoreline until you reach Fort William (a journey of approximately 1.5 hours), keeping a sharp eye out for the national treasure, the Loch Ness Monster.

In Fort William, stay in the majestic 
Inverlochy Castle Hotel, which is located on the banks of its own loch. When you are not sampling world-famous whiskies in local distilleries, or visiting Ben Nevis and walking around the impressive foothills of the UK’s highest mountain, relax in the luxurious rooms, savour gourmet cuisine and drink in the panoramic views.

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.
