Isle of Skye Tour from Inverness Itinerary

We depart Inverness at 8.am and travel the length of the majestic Loch Ness; thus, a great start to our Isle of Skye Tour from Inverness.

The world-famous Loch is home to ‘Nessie’ or the ‘Loch ness Monster’ as she’s sometimes known.

Cameras at the ready! Sightings of ‘Nessie’ are not as rare as you may think.

On the shores of the loch is a unique Castle and an ideal photo opportunity. Urquart Castle dates back to the 6th century and is steeped in history and legend.

Eilean Donan Castle

Perhaps the most photographed castle in Scotland. Eilean Donan Castle has featured in many movies and TV shows, including ‘Highlander’ and ‘James Bond’ to name only a couple. One of my favourite folklore tales is of the origins of the Castle and travelling the glen telling you the story is something I always look forward to.

Private Day Trips to Skye from Inverness

After coffee, we cross the Skye Bridge onto the magical ‘Misty Isle.’

The largest of the Inner Hebrides, Skye has attracted travellers from the late 18th century and has many hidden treasures and legends.

Our Skye adventure has only just started!

Isle of Skye Day Tour from Inverness

The “Misty Isle” holds many incredible visitor experiences and unique sites. Because of this, it’s actually impossible to do Skye justice with a mere description.

On our private tour, I shall endeavour to paint the same picture of Skye that my Father painted for me.

Tales of Warriors, Kings, Princes’s, Faeries and Giants, are literally around every corner on the Isle of Skye.

The Fairy Pools

The Fairy Pools of Skye are magical, crystal clear pools of water and a fantastic walk.

One of our first stops is the Fairy Pools of Skye. A walk is possible and even a swim for those brave enough to enter the faerie waters.

Portree Village

The beautiful village of Portree is our lunch stop.

Fantastic local shops and eateries give us all the opportunity to taste lovely local produce and buy snacks for our epic journey around the Trotternish Peninsula.

The Old Man of Storr is an incredible stop on our tours of the Isle of Skye from Inverness.

The Old Man of Storr

Wonder at ‘The Old Man of Storr’ and the Trotternish Peninsula.

Whether the Faeries or landslips created the landscape here, we’ll leave that for you to decide.

Another great Skye legend is the actual making of the pinnacle known as the ‘Old Man of Storr’

We love to share a tale with you on our travels around the island or even as we walk up the Storr to gaze across the Minch.

The ‘Quiraing’

The world-famous fairy tale landscape of the Quiraing is awe-inspiring. Hike for the best views across the Minch.

Kilt Rock 

Mealt Water Fall and Kilt Rock, are a wonderful example of Skye’s Jurassic landscapes, and an impressive waterfall which plummets into the ocean.

The Fairy Glen

The Fairy Glen on the Isle of Skye is a magical stop on our tours from Inverness.

When the wind blows, the Bag Pipes’ ghostly rasp can still be heard echoing from the Faerie Kingdom’s deep chambers.

Isle of Skye Tours from Inverness

Join us on a private tour and breath in Skye’s sea air and gaze across the highlands and islands of Scotland.

The Atlantic Ocean and islands make the most impressive backdrop for a magical journey.

 The Isle of Skye’s rugged coastline is the perfect place to hear some local history, folklore and legends.

Many believe ‘faeries’ are still with us! Just out of sight, behind a thin veil of mist.

Standing here, immersed in the landscape of the” Quiraing” or the mystery of the “Fairy Glen” and its easy to see why.

Skye Tours from Inverness

Private tours are designed around you and your travelling companions.

 A hike up the ‘Storr’ or you may prefer more time in the fishing village of Portree!

Complete flexibility is only one of the many benefits of a private guide and transport.

Local knowledge of where to go if the weather turns, or how best to avoid the crowds in busier months, a huge advantage of the private Isle of Skye Tours from Inverness.

In summary, private guided tours of Scotland are a unique and relaxed way to explore.
