Photoalbum of some of our recent Scotland Unicorn Tours:
https://www.facebook.com/UnicornScotlandAdventureTours?ref=hl
(photos 22, 7 and 5 cover a lot of the North and Northwest coast plus as this tour covers a wide range of regions we drive through on our longer tour to the Northern Highlands images for places we visit on this tour can be found on almost any of our photoalbums).

Depending on your preferences and interests, the main places that have been agreed and discussed, the overall time we have left after our stops (especially in the winter months with shorter daylight hours), the places listed above are just a few among other nearby options, that we might be travelling through and see, stopping at and/or visiting along the way as on each of our friendly, flexible and personalised tours we maximise and offer you the best tour experience given the conditions on the day (for example if it is pouring down with rain on one side of a mountain range, we believe in offering you the alternative sunny route on the other side of the mountains, etc.)

Subject to availability possible overnight (hostel, bed & breakfast, hotel, camping) options do all exist for your 3 days+ tour. As there are too many possible places to stay at, we can check room availability for your preferred option at the time of your enquiry/booking.
