Take our three day Isle of Skye tour from Edinburgh to explore the highlands and enjoy the natural beauty of one of Scotland’s favourite islands where you will spend two nights in the charming town of Portree.

Day 1

From Edinburgh our Isle of Skye tour will head west to collect our Glasgow passengers and then make our first stop on this Skye tour at the picturesque conservation village of Luss, on the ‘Bonny, Bonny’ banks of Loch Lomond.

Travelling north via Tyndrum we pass over the atmospheric Rannoch Moor before enjoying time to walk and admire the dramatic Glencoe valley, site of the 1692 massacre of the MacDonald Clan.

After lunch in the Fort William area, our Isle of Skye tour will pause for photos at Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, then stop to admire Glen Garry and the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range.

Our journey ends in the charming village of Portree, on the Isle of Skye, where we check into our accommodation.

Day 2

After breakfast the Isle of Skye tour will depart Portree for a full day’s touring - options include Dunvegan Castle, or a trip to Uig and a stop to visit Flora MacDonald’s grave and the unique Black Houses, ancient dwellings of the Scottish Highlanders.

We continue our journey where we can view Duntulum Castle, take photos of Kilt Rock and perhaps enjoy a walk at the Lealt Falls.

Our 3 day Isle of Skye tour ends with the opportunity to admire the Old Man of Storr, before we return to Portree.

Day 3

We commence our descent via the much-admired Eilean Donan Castle, backdrop for the movie, ‘Highlander’; (interior closed in winter) then move on to the pretty loch-side village of Fort Augustus for lunch and views of Loch Ness.

The Isle of Skye tour continues south over Laggan and the Grampianmountains with our last stop, for refreshments, in the Victorian resort town of Pitlochry, before returning to Edinburgh, where our Isle of Skye tour terminates.
