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?

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.

Reviews from our previous guests

  • Craig was our guide for the day and what a great day it was. We were a small group of seven people and everyone hit it off which made it even better. Craig was knowledgeable and really knew his stuff. Saw some amazing sights and laughed a lot that day. Would definitely recommend and use again.

  • Robbie was an excellent Tour driver. Perfect Day out me and my daughter Absolutely loved it. Thank you so much For an excellent Day out.

  • Earth-born companion An’ fellow-mortal!Our guide & driver Rob was the best part of our day. He recited Robbie Burns, sang songs about the Gordon clan, and entertained us with tales of the Orange people versus the Jacobites. He knows every rock band worth its salt, can play the entire guitar solo from Metallica’s Whisky In The Jar, and told us all about salmon fishing on the Beauly. Plus he looked after each of us and made sure we each had a lovely day. We went on this tour to drink whisky but had no idea that the whisky would be overshadowed by a true gentleman and a scholar. We will never forget the sound of “To A Mouse” as recited by Rob, the highlight of our trip. One of Scotland’s finest - we hope we meet him again some day.

  • Omgosh where do I start!! Our tour was amazing, Bill is amazing! He touches bases on everything we wanted to see! He interacted with me on the Outlander books and series, my sister got to see her Highland coos and I got to several stone circles! Take my advice and ask for Bill you will not in any way be disappointed! He surprised us at every turn. And knows Scottish history like nobody’s business!! Thank you Bill I loves our trip with you!!
