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.
