Eilean Donan Castle and on to Isle of Skye

Eilean Donan Castle and on to Isle of Skye. Just  the tour you want if you have a full day and want to make the most of it. Leaving Inverness at 9 am prompt and driving along Loch Ness. We stop for a photograph along the way and other pictures can be taken while we drive around half the length of the beautiful Loch.  Forward into the mountains and to Kintail and the five Sisters at Loch Cluanie.  The beauty of the Highlands is around every corner.  Through Glen Shiel and on to the award winning Eilean Donan Castle, the most photographed castle in Scotland!  The castle is a must see, and a highlight of the tour.

Isle of Skye

Fifteen  minutes from the castle we go over the bridge of Skye. Make sure to look into the water as we go over the bridge, I have seen Orca swimming underneath.  With the wonderful views of the Cuillin mountains to our right you will get some lovely photographs.  We then drive through the small villages and up to Uig and the Fairy Glen, where we have lunch, (provided) a picnic style lunch is proved. This allows you to either go off alone and enjoy the scene or to sit at the table or if the weather is inclement to eat in the warmth and comfort of the van.  Go exploring, find the fairy rings and just enjoy the peace of the Fairy Glen.  Onward to the Quiraing, a volcanic outreach with wonderful views and often a favourite of guests.  Kilt rock and then Old Man of Storr come next before driving through Portree and back over the bridge around four pm.

Homeward bound

We drive home along the Wester Ross Coastal road showing you more of the Highlands. We could see a lot of the wildlife during the day.  Wild goats, eagles and maybe even a deer of two. Stopping for pictures at Loch Carron before the hour and half drive listening to some Scottish music as you relax and enjoy the new scenery.  Arriving back into Inverness around 6pm.
