Skye is a gem of an island, the largest of the Inner Hebrides lying off the west coast of Scotland. With a distinctly Highland feel - beautiful heather clad mountain scenery, stunning sea lochs, interesting geology and an abundance of wildlife.
Early-ish start from our departure point heading north west of Stirling through the beautiful Trossachs, reaching the stunning Glencoe mountains before lunch. Moving further north and on to Fort William for a spot of lunch and some grocery shopping to stock up two nights at accommodation. Make sure you have good walking shoes because we like to get you off the bus as much as possible for stunning walks in the Scottish countryside.
During the afternoon we will visit the Glenfinnan Viaduct (better known to many as the Harry Potter bridge), Eilean Donan Castle - possibly one of the most iconic Scottish castles set on a loch in majestic scenery where three great sea lochs meet. Also used on the set of 'Highlander'.
Next stop - check in at the hostel in Stromeferry.
Over the sea to Skye taking in the beautiful coastal village of Portree, The Old Man of Storr - a magnificent pinnacle of rock 48m high standing below 182m cliffs, Kilt rock, The Quaraing - mind bending amazing scenery and Faerie Glen - a truly magical gem used in the filming of Stardust. No tours of the Isle of Skye would be complete without a visit to the world famous Fairy Pools
We're off to Loch Ness with your chance to spot the Loch Ness Monster and pick up some Nessie souvenirs. Lunch will be at the beautiful little town of Fort Augustus where, if you're brave enough, you can take a dip in Loch Ness and swim with the monster. Heading South we will be travelling through the Cairngorm mountains on some of Scotland's highest roads. On this leg of the journey, we will have time to get off the bus and enjoy exploring some of the fantastic Scottish Highland wilderness. We will be arriving back home in the early evening.
We provide small group tours (no more than 16 passengers) of the Highlands, Isle of Skye and Loch Ness. Experience authentic Scotland with our small family business. We provide 2 separate scheduled tours - a 3 day tour to the Isle of Skye departing from St. Andrews, Dundee and Stirling, and a 4 day tour to the Isle of Skye and Inverness which departs from Edinburgh. We can also create bespoke tours for anyone who comes with the glimmer of an idea they want to make real. An exhaustive knowledge of Scotland also means that we are able to drop the itinerary for that unexpected magical detour.
