ITINERARY

smallgroupSmall group tour: The Isle of Skye Tour

DAY ONE

Glencoe Valley, Fort William and Eilean Donan Castle

The Isle of Skye Tour Eilean Donan

Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland

Today we enjoy a day of stunning vistas as we travel from Edinburgh to Scotland's West Coast and then through the Highlands to the Isle of Skye. This morning we pass Stirling with views of its imposing Castle and the towering Wallace Monument before a glimpse of Doune Castle, which featured in Monty Python's "Holy Grail". We then take refreshments in picturesque Callander on the edge of the Trossachs National Park before passing north through the wild landscapes of the desolate Rannoch Moor and the mountain pass of Glencoe, once the scene of the infamous Macdonald Clan massacre in 1692. Arriving on Scotland's scenic West Coast, we pass through port town Fort William and gain views of Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis before continuing in to the North West Highlands where we'll have the opportunity for a photo-stop at the iconic Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland's most famous castles, jutting out in to the Loch. Crossing over the bridge to Skye, we make our way to the island's capital, Portree. After checking in to your accommodation you have the evening free to explore this pretty harbour town and dine out at leisure.

accommodationOvernight: Portree, Isle of Skye

attractionsHighlights: Stirling Views, Callandar, the Trossachs National Park, Rannoch Moor, Glencoe Valley, Fort William, Ben Nevis, the Great Glen, Eilean Donan Castle and the Isle of Skye.

DAY TWO

The Natural Beauty of the Isle of Skye

This morning is a flexible day exploring the majestic natural scenery of Skye where your driver-guide's in depth knowledge of the area will come in to its own. Perhaps tour the north of the island along the stunning Trotternish ridge with its spectacular coastal landscapes, cliffs and natural rock formations, such as the famous "Old Man of Storr", the dramatic sea cliff "Kilt Rock" and the stunning mountain pass of the Quiraing. You will have the chance to take walks in the landscapes away from the mini-bus at various stops and photo-opportunities. In the west of the island the scenery changes again with the emerald green valley of Glendale and the dramatic sea-cliffs of Neist Point (the most westerly point on the island) where you may catch glimpses of whales or sharks in the frothing waters. Time permitting you may see the 13th-century home of the Clan Macleod, Dunvegan Castle.

accommodationOvernight: Portree, Isle of Skye

attractionsHighlights: Cuillin Mountains, Portree Town, the Trotternish Peninsula, the Old Man of Storr, Skye's West Coast and Dunvegan Castle.

DAY THREE

Loch Ness, the Great Glen and the Grampian Mountains

After being collected from your accommodation and travelling south through the Cuillin Hills you return to the mainland for stunning views over Loch Duich and the five Sisters of Kintail. We continue in to the Great Glen and to Loch Ness where we take our lunch-stop. Here you can enjoy some "Nessie" spotting from the shores or you could even take a boat trip on the waters to get you that bit closer! Heading south now, we pass through the beautiful Grampian mountains and along Loch Laggan, famous now as "Monarch of the Glen Country" before passing Dalwhinnie, home to Scotland's highest whisky Distillery, and Blair Castle. Making a final stop for refreshments we return to Edinburgh past Perth and across the Firth of Forth road bridge. Your tour ends in Edinburgh at approximately 7pm.
