The Fairy Pools, Isle of Skye

The Ultimate Isle of Skye Day Tour from Inverness

On our Ultimate Isle of Skye day tour from Inverness you will see the Fairy Pools, The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, the Cuillin Mountains, Portree, Eilean Donan Castle and Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness.

The Ultimate Isle of Skye Tour departs from Inverness Bus Station at 8.15am, where you will board a well-appointed 30-seater mini-coach. Accompanied by an highly experienced and local driver guide, you will embark on a 12-hour adventure to the Isle of Skye. Highlights of the tour include;

Eilean Donan Castle

Our first stop is at at one of the most photographed castles in the world! This 13th Century fortification dominates the small tidal island it sits on, and is surrounded by majestic mountain scenery.

We will spent around 20 minutes here at a classic viewpoint across the water. Please note that there is not enough time to visit the castle. 

The Skye Bridge

We journey over the bridge, hearing the story of its inception whilst enjoying breathtaking views of The Misty Isle and its neighbours (hopefully, if the sun is shining!)


We would recommend taking a short walk to see the famous pastel-coloured houses or, for beautiful harbour views, head up to the Apothecary Tower. Alternatively, this is your opportunity to indulge in some souvenir shopping or relax with a coffee (30 - 40 minute stop).

Old Man of Storr

We will stop to admire this 50 metre high rock pinnacle from the Storr Lochs viewpoint (10 minute stop).

Kilt Rock

Always a highlight, this impressive 60 metres waterfall is said to resemble a highland kilt. When the wind blows the water back up the kilt it really is a sight to behold! (15 minute stop)

Fairy Pools

Take a walk to see the crystal clear waters of the Fairy Pools, set to a beautiful backdrop of the imposing Cuillin Mountains. We will have around 90 minutes here which will give you plenty time to hike to the pools (20 minutes each way) and enjoy the splendid beauty of your surroundings. Don't forget your camera!

Urquhart Castle/Loch Ness

After journeying along the shores of Loch Ness we will have our final stop of the day here, where we will view the ruins of the castle from above..keeping an eye out for Nessie too of course!

Highland Cows

On most tours there will be an opportunity to stop and say hello to these beloved hairy beasties. We can't guarantee it, but we will certainly do our best!

You will return to Inverness at 8.15pm with photos galore, and memories to last a lifetime!
