Travel inland with our East Meets West itinerary:

Travelling the NC500 is just one of the ways to explore the Highlands but if you want to go off the beaten track and add some really exciting stops to your itinerary then travelling inland is the way to go!

Whether you choose to travel east to west or the other way around, the East Meets West experience is just as exhilarating and you can see the physical changing of the landscape as you travel. The rugged, remoteness of the dramatic west coast and the meandering lochs and glens of the stunning east coast – Sutherland has it all.

Let us plan your journey

Our East Meets West itinerary includes a stay at one of our hotels on each coast with dining included. You can easily spend the entire day exploring – we just advise that you head home before sunset!

Choose from Kylesku Hotel and Newton Lodge in Assynt on the West coast, or Royal Marine Hotel in Brora and Royal Golf Hotel in Dornoch on the East coast.

If there is an experience activity that must be pre-booked, we will do this for you. We will even send you on your way with a luxury picnic!

Let us make it easy for you!
