Full description
The tour departs Inverness and begins with some monster spotting at the world-famous Loch Ness. Take an optional cruise (pay on arrival) to the ruins of the historically significant Urquhart Castle, or enjoy free time in the village of Drumnadrochit before meeting up with the rest of the group to continue the journey west.

On the road to Skye, immerse yourself in a scenic drive like no other, through the dramatic Glen Shiel, past waterfalls and sea lochs, and on to the romantic Eilean Donan Castle. Cross the iconic Skye Bridge then travel into Skye’s ancient Cuillin Mountains to visit the vibrant, translucent Fairy Pools. Skye is a land of history and mystery, and your guide will keep you thoroughly entertained with tales of clan feuds, faeries and giants.

Spend the night in Skye’s capital, Portree, where the evening is yours to visit the colorful harbor, and sample local whiskey and seafood. Wake up on day two with a hearty highland breakfast and then head north to visit the Quiraing and enjoy the infamous panorama of the spectacular Skye landscape. Spend the day exploring the highlights of the region including Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, and The Old Man of Storr. After a busy day of sightseeing, leave Syke and head back to Inverness, taking the scenic route to admire yet more breathtaking views of the rolling countryside.
