The Skye High is a wee gem. Ideal for travellers short on time who want to get the most out of their trip to Scotland. All the best stuff is packed in: lochs, ruined castles, a mysterious island and Nessie hunting.

DAY 1: EDINBURGH TO LOCH NESS

We leave Scotland's capital behind at 8.30am and cross the Forth Road Bridge on our way through Macbeth country to Dunkeld with its mighty Cathedral. We stop at a Highland whisky distillery where you can discover how Scotland’s favourite tipple, the ‘Water of Life’ is made. For those brave enough, there’s even the opportunity to taste a wee dram.

Journeying on through Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, we follow the entire length of Loch Ness searching for a glimpse of the legendary beast. Our home for the night is the fantastically homely Morag’s Lodge hostel, nestled on the shores of Loch Ness. In the summer months take a cruise on the loch and go monster hunting before partying the night away in a Highland pub.

DAY 2: ISLE OF SKYE

Today we travel to the Isle of Skye, also known as the ‘Isle of Mist’ and at the top of the bucket list due to its heart-stopping scenery. This wee island is packed with ruined castles, breathtaking views and faerie stories. Home to the legendary MacLeod and MacDonald Clans, your Guide will recount Celtic myths and Viking legends from the past millennia.

We explore the windswept landscape, stunning coastline and dramatic mountain ranges before returning back to the mainland past the most photographed castle in Scotland, Eilean Donan Castle

DAY 3: LOCH NESS TO EDINBURGH

Leaving the Great Glen, we pass under the shadow of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain. Our route south takes us through the stunning rugged landscape of Glencoe, once used as a backdrop in James Bond Skyfall and the Harry Potter movies and the scene for 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan. Journey through one of the last remaining wildernesses in Europe when we cross the Rannoch Moor, a vast stretch of land that will show you yet again another side of Scotland.

We head past Stirling, the scene of some of Scotland’s most famous and bloody battles in the Wars of Independence. Hear of local legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce before the Highlands change back to the Lowlands. After epic three days, we return to Edinburgh, at approximately 5.00pm.
