Depart Inverness early in the morning and begin your tour crossing the beautifully scenic Black Isle and stopping in the village of Lochcarron. Enjoy the views across Loch Carron and perhaps pick up a bite to eat, before you continue on to Achintraid. The small village enjoys views over Loch Kishorn and a breathtaking mountain range on the opposite shore. Continue your journey, climbing upwards through dramatic landscape over the Bealach na Ba (Gaelic for Pass of the Cattle). Pause for photos at the summit of the third highest road in Britain at over 2000 feet, so be ready for those breathtaking views across Raasay and the Isle of Skye.

Stop here and enjoy plenty of time to explore the village. Begin your return journey to Inverness, driving along the banks of Loch Torridon, through the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve. This nature reserve is one of the oldest in Britain and is home to plenty of wildlife; you may even spot a golden eagle. Travel on through Shieldaig and Kinlochewe and homeward bound to Inverness.

What people are saying about Isle of Skye

Great landscape.... everyone should do this tour....I don't know why it is not so popular....it was about to be cancelled....at last moment they sent a guide and driver who haven't done the tour before...so no idea where we are heading...but thanks to good weather and picturesque landscape....it became enjoyable....but i shall highly recommend this one

This tour was my highlight in the Highlands, you can see so much of the beautiful and breathtaking nature. We also saw lots of animals (sheep, cows, crows, salmon and deer) and crossing the mountain was really exciting. Our tour guides Marita and Alex made the tour really great and very informative. I highly recommend this experience to everyone!

Pretty great tour. Don’t expect to see too much of the local Wildlife, at least in September. I saw a few fish an Otter and some Seals. Still a lot of interesting infos and places and overall really friendly and easy going people. Well worth your time and your money imo. :)

One of the most beautiful tours you can do in the Highlands! The nature and the sights are just breathtaking, and the drive over the mountain is quite the adventure. Our guides Marita and Alex made it a great day! :)

Beautiful views lovely lunch and very informative tour guide
