Highland & Loch Safaris – scenic ways to explore Scotland!
If you want to make the most of Scotland, why not book a Highland & Loch Safari and explore the glorious landscapes in comfort.
Award-winning journeys of discovery over land and loch provide a great day out for all the family. Highland Safaris’ Loch Tay cruises are a great way to discover all that is great about Scotland. The unique boat trips bring Loch Tay to life by exploring the history and heritage of this beautiful lake. The boat gets in close to the inaccessible parts of the loch to explore the wildlife & nature – an inspirational journey suitable for all ages. Live commentary from a passionate and knowledgeable crew add to the experience.
If you want to come face-to-face with Britain’s largest native land mammal, take a trip to the Red Deer Centre. From the shelter of the Red Deer Barn, you can stroke, feed and photograph these magnificent animals. Visitors can also get up close and personal with a Barn Owl with a hands-on demonstration.
Another impressive attraction is Scotland’s only Gold and Gem Panning Centre. Armed with your own pan and bucket of dirt, scoop and swirl in the panning flume to hunt for real gold, ‘fool’s gold’ and semi-precious gemstones. An identification chart will help you understand what you have found! To add to the fun, whatever you find you can take home!
