Full description

Leave the 'Capital of the Highlands’ behind, for a full-day adventure to the magical Isle of Skye. You'll get to drive along the world-famous Loch Ness, home of the elusive monster, and onwards through the mountains towards the west coast. Majestic mountains give way to vast sea lochs, which were once used by Vikings as an access route. Stop at the romantic Eilean Donan Castle with time for you to explore inside. After crossing the Skye Bridge, learn about the island’s myths and legends, as well as the true tales of rival clans and a fugitive prince. Enjoy lunch in the main town of Portree and visit the colorful harbor. Explore the Isle of Skye’s stunning coastline, and marvel at the Old Man of Storr, Lealt Falls, and Kilt Rock. Take in the last of Skye’s otherworldly landscapes as you drive through the Highlands back to Inverness.

It was the perfect tour to get to see everything in just one day. We left just on time and came back a bit earlier than expected. Our guide, Alana, not only taught us many interesting things about Scottish history bit also recommended us quite a few places to visit once we got back. The views are stunning, the weather was on our side and the timing for each stop was just right.
