Our Journey to the Isle of Skye takes us on a Loch Ness and Highlands tour from Inverness

Inverness Castle & River Ness

Set off from the heart of Inverness with a view of Inverness Castle, travel along the road to the Isles, passing the River Ness, and begin to take in some of Scotland’s most beautiful and famous places.

Loch Ness

We begin with 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?

Glen Shiel & Eilean Donan Castle

As we part ways from 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 we will be 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 that has gained the Isle of Skye it’s 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.

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!).


Visit the picturesque harbour town of Portree, and perhaps enjoy some wonderfully fresh seafood for lunch in one of the amazing Portree restaurants. As part of this guided tour of the Scottish Highlands, you will be able to walk along the 19th century pier designed by one of Scotland’s most renowned Civil Engineers, Thomas Telford.

Old Man of Storr & The Quiraing

After lunch, we continue on to gaze upon the Trotternish peninsula, where volcanic activity has left mesmerising natural landmarks on the Isle of Skye. The impressive Old Man of Storr, the phenomenal views at the Quiraing and, to complete the “bucket list”, the distinctive pillars and beautiful waterfall at Kilt Rock, with views across to the Torridon hills on the mainland.
