This tour offers you some of the most dramatic and breathtaking landscapes Scotland has to offer! See Loch Ness, visit Eilean Donan Castle, wander through Portree, gaze at Kilt Rock and much more on this Skye tour from Inverness: capital of the Highlands.

Your friendly and knowledgeable guide welcomes you, while you board the luxury, air-conditioned coach. After departing from Inverness, you will travel to the south, along the shorelines of Loch Ness.

After your visit to Loch Ness, the journey continues on to Eilean Donan Castle. Built in 1220, this is one of Scotland’s most photographed castles.

Enjoy a leisurely walk to the harbour or visit some of the local shops. Whatever you choose, there is plenty of time to explore this small, yet bustling village. Its beautiful surroundings of rocky cliffs and rolling hills, make it a perfect stop to have lunch and enjoy the stunning views.

After your visit to Portree, the tour takes you to other points of interest in Skye. This includes Kilt Rock, where you can enjoy amazing coastal views. And from Lealt Falls you can take a short walk to admire the Old Man of Storr.
