Our Journey to the Isle of Skye follows the River Ness and Loch Ness

Inverness Castle & River Ness

Set off from the heart of Inverness to the Isle of Skye with a view of Inverness Castle. As we venture away from Inverness to the Isle of Skye, we travel across the country, passing the River Ness, taking in some of Scotland’s most beautiful and famous places en route.

The iconic Inverness Castle rises above the city

The Famous Loch Ness

We begin the journey from Inverness to the Isle of Skye travelling down the mysterious Loch Ness, home of the Loch Ness Monster. As we travel down Loch Ness you have wonderful views of Urquhart Castle. And then why not look out for other wildlife along the way and perhaps spot some deer, wild goats, an osprey or an eagle! Why not stop and “say hello” to Morag, Mhairi and the rest of the Highland Cows in the gang?

Much of Scotland’s most well-known wildlife make their home around Loch Ness. Will you spot the Loch’s most famous resident?

Glen Shiel & Eilean Donan Castle

As we part ways with Loch Ness, we discover the emotive and atmospheric Glen Shiel where a Jacobite battle was fought against the British Government in 1719. As we pass through Glen Shiel on the road from Inverness to the Isle of Skye, we are rewarded with stunning views of the legendary and dramatic peaks of the Five Sisters of Kintail. Just before we reach our crossing to the Isle of Skye we can take in the world-famous and extremely photogenic 13th century Eilean Donan Castle.

Your Isle of Skye tour continues over the Skye bridge...

Skye Bridge

We then cross onto the Isle of Skye to take in some of the most breath-taking scenery and landscapes which have gained the Isle of Skye its notoriety all over the world. Even our crossing to the Isle of Skye is something to behold as we will be crossing over the beautifully designed Skye Bridge, which opened in 1995, connecting the Isle of Skye with the mainland.

Cuillin Mountain Range

Enjoy travelling through the Cuillin Mountain Range and take in the dramatic and ever changing backdrop so heavily influenced by the unpredictability of the Isle of Skye weather (so warm and waterproof clothing/footwear is a good idea just in case!)

The Cuillin mountains may derive their name from the Old Norse word kjölen which means “ridges”

The Old Man of Storr

After lunch, we continue on to gaze upon the Trotternish peninsula, where volcanic activity has left mesmerising natural landmarks on the Isle of Skye. See the impressive Old Man of Storr, where you can learn about the giant’s love story…
