Full description

Explore the Isle of Skye on a day trip from Inverness, and marvel at some of the most stunning scenery in Scotland. Discover Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle, Portree, Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, the Old Man of Storr, and more.

Depart Inverness and travel South, along the shoreline of Loch Ness to Invermoriston. Stop for a short break at Loch Ness which is 24 miles long, over 700ft deep, famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster.

Continue to the picturesque Eilean Donan Castle, situated on its own island at the head of Loch Duic. Take time to explore one of Scotland’s most photographed castles and its atmospheric surroundings.

Journey to the Isle of Skye, passing over the Skye Bridge and on to the small village of Portree for a lunchtime stop. Portree, although a small harbor village, is the capital of Skye, and is surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills.

Take in its beautiful surroundings while enjoying lunch with views of the boats. Begin touring the island with stops at Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, the Old Man of Storr, and perhaps Strome Viewpoint.

Andrew J was great and inspite of bad weather and unrelated changes to itinerary, he was great in ensuring everyone was well taken care of. I would only suggest that the tours be cancelled or rescheduled when the weather is not suitable so that the trip is actually enjoyable for tourists (someone like me who may not have checked the weather and booked this).

It was an amazing tour! Our guide was Marita who’s got an incredible energy and made sure we didn’t get bored on the bus for one second! She’s very knowledgeable, told us many tales of Scottish folklore and other stories and entertained us for the entire trip. I have to say that we got extremely lucky with the weather as it was sunny the entire day and that made everything perfect. We came back to Inverness totally exhausted but it was worth it. I highly recommend this tour and Marita!

Ryan was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide. Also a great driver for the wet and snowy conditions! I loved the 80s music and songs he played from his brother-in-law's band, and the lessons on Gaelic that were provided. This trip made me want to come back to explore the Scottish Highlands when I have several days and to see it in full bloom in the spring. I definitely recommend this trip!
