Next stop is the magnificently situated Urquhart Castle, on the shore of Loch Ness.

Travelling on to Cluanie Dam where in 1957 the glen of Cluanie was flooded to as part of the North of Scotland Hydro-Electric Board's Glenmoriston project to generate hydroelectricity.

Visit the village of Broadford which is nestled beneath the motherly shape of Ben na Calliach (the hill of the old woman). Sligachan is located where the Black Cuillin meets the western seaboard , This is where to come to see the view that so often graces postcards and canvass alike of the Red and Black Cuillin with Glen Sligachan between them.

Quick stop at Talisker Distillery the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye is set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins. Producing an alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt is so easy to enjoy, and like Skye itself, so hard to leave.

Fairy Pools the spectacular Fairy Pools are located near the village of Carbost in Glenbrittle on the Isle of Skye. Glenbrittle runs roughly south to north along the River Brittle and is overlooked by the Cuillin mountains. Many tributaries of the River Brittle run down from the Cuillin into the glen including a stream with waterfalls known as the Fairy Pools, a popular place for walkers. The Fairy Pools are beautiful rock pools of crystal clear spring water fed by a series of waterfalls. Visitors can embark on the stunning 2.4km walk from the car park to the Fairy Pools via the gravel path bordered with grass, heather, peat and rocks up towards the largest waterfall, or walk further up the path and explore some of the smaller pools which lie ahead. The water of the Fairy Pools is crystal clear, perfect for any adventurous swimmers brave enough to enter the icy waters. – Go on you know you want to……………………….
