Full description
Depart Inverness and travel South, hugging the shoreline of Loch Ness to Invermoriston. Stop for a short break at Loch Ness which is 24 miles long, over 700ft deep and is most famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster. After Loch Ness, travel on to the picturesque Eilean Donan Castle which is situated on its own island at the head of Loch Duic and is one of Scotland’s most photographed castles. Take time here to explore the Castle and its atmospheric surroundings. Continue your journey to the Isle of Skye, passing over the Skye Bridge and on to the small village of Portree for a lunchtime stop. Portree, although a small harbor village, is the capital of Skye, and is surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills. Its beautiful surroundings make it a perfect stop to enjoy lunch and views of the boats. Moving on, see various points of interest in Skye including Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, the Old Man of Storr and perhaps Strome Viewpoint. Continue homeward bound to Inverness, where your Isle of Skye day tour ends.

The guide is a must-go in Inverness if you don't have a car. Tour guide Ted really did his job by telling us the history and culture of Scotland along the way. Normally, you would only visit places in Isle of Skye and taking pictures (+ long and boring commute). With the tour, you can get the best photo spots plus the history behind those places. That makes the tour more than simply an Instagram post.

10/10 recommend! It was a great trip and a nice way to see the Isle of Skye when you have a short period of time to do so. Ray, our guide, was super friendly and very knowledgeable about Scotland so we heard a lot of interesting history which added to the trip.
