The Glen Mhor Hotel & Apartments in Inverness is a fantastic base for exploring the Highlands, Skye, Orkney and Speyside. However, if you don’t fancy driving for hours on country roads, or you don’t have a car, we can recommend a relaxing and enjoyable alternative to driving.

We are delighted to have partnered with WOW Scotland, who offer a range of outstanding one day tours, all of which pick up and drop off from Glen Mhor Hotel. This small, locally-owned tour operator has over 1770 5 star TripAdvisor reviews and is five-star-rated by VisitScotland, as they offer “exceptional customer experiences”. Additionally, as the only tour operator to offer scheduled pick-ups and drop-offs at The Glen Mhor, we are delighted that they provide a superior level of service for our guests.

If you want to see Scotland, we would recommend seeing it with the people who know it best on one of their award-winning tours;
