One Day Clan Macleod private tour from Inverness to the Isle of Skye including Dunvegan Castle, ancestral home of the Clan Macleod for nearly 800 years.

The Clan Macleod tour to the Isle of Skye begins at Inverness where we follow the banks of Loch Ness down past Urquhart Castle to Invermoriston before turning west through Glen Moriston on the way to Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel. Loch Duich awaits us at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains with the stunning Eilean Donan Castle in the distance.

After a brief photo and refreshment break at the castle we cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye and on to explore the magnificent Cuillin mountain range. Our journey through the Isle of Skye takes us to the base of the Red Hills and the old bridge at Sligachan for a dramatic view of the peaks of the Black Cuillin in ancient Macleod lands.

From there its a short drive to Dunvegan Castle - the oldest continually inhabited castle in Scotland - where we have around 2 hours to explore the castle, its gardens and enjoy a late lunch. Leaving Dunvegan Castle we drive to the main town in Skye - Portree - where we have a brief late afternoon stop to explore its beautiful harbour and town centre before we begin our return journey to Inverness arriving back in the early evening.
