About
Journey into the Scottish Highlands—famed for picturesque hills, lakes, and centuries of history—and then onwards to the Isle of Skye on this 3-day tour from Edinburgh. The small group size makes this trip feel more intimate, and it includes round-trip transit from Edinburgh via a top-of-the-range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach, so you can focus on admiring the scenery instead of navigating your own way through the countryside.

What to expect
This 3-day adventure in the Scottish Highlands begins when you meet your guide at a convenient location in Edinburgh and set off via a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach. With only a small group of fellow travelers for company, you discover the area’s unique landscapes and rich history. On the first day, you head to Portree, the Isle of Skye’s largest town. En route, see the historic city of Stirling, Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest peak), and the hills and waterfalls of Glencoe. Enjoy free time to explore Portree in the evening before a night at a B&B or 3-star hotel—whichever you picked at checkout. The second day begins with a guided tour of the Isle of Skye. Depending on the weather, visit the 13th-century Dunvegan Castle, the rugged rock formations of Quiraing, or the sea cliffs at Neist Point, among other destinations. Your second night is again spent in Portree. On the third day, make your way back to Edinburgh, with plenty of sightseeing opportunities as you go. Pause at Loch Ness to see if you can spot Nessie (its sea monster), and admire the wild Grampian Mountains. The tour ends in early evening, upon return to Edinburgh.

Definitely the Highlands tour. Breath taking. The stories provided by Graham, our guide, were also very interesting. The vehicle is very comfy too. Bring hiking footwear and waterproof gear just in case. The weather is very unpredictable.

Jul 2021
This tour was fantastic and greatly organised. Isle of Skye is one of the most beautiful places I have been (and I have been in many stunning places). The Highlands are a very special and unique place.
Our tour guide, Graham, was great – he had a great knowledge and clearly loves Scotland. He made our experience more interesting and fun by sharing stories about the places we were visiting. His playlist was fantastic with very beautiful songs, always related to a story he was telling and / or a place we were visiting. The whole experience was excellent!

I will use Rabbies again.

Summer trip to the highlands
Jul 2021 • Couples
It was our first tour since we moved to the UK a couple of years ago. We've always wanted to visit Scotland and tried last year but had to cancel due to the pandemic, glad we rebooked and it worked this time! How wonderful it all was! Landscape was breathtaking and along the way, our guide Andy recounted all kinds of stories about the places we were visiting, the history was never dull, thanks to his great storytelling abilities and he would also take us to not so obvious places, which was really nice. He was very friendly and easygoing and it felt like we were on a trip amongst friends. The coach was impecable and covid measures were followed, with masks worn throughout the entire tour and social distancing maintained. We would definitely book another tour!

Fantastic tour guide/driver Camaron
Jun 2021
We took a 3 day tour to Isle of Sky from Edingburg on the 19/6/21 and It was excellent. We were very lucky to be transferred to the tour group originated in Glasgow due to COVID restrictions and less number of people.Our guide Cameron was full of knowledge and went an extra mile to make our journey enjoyable. He stopped in all the beautiful spots for photos. He explained everything in detail and played appropriate music in different locations and made sure all of us were safe and comfortable. He even made sure we went inside our accommodation on the first day. I will not hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone to specially if Camaron is the guide. Thank Camaron for everything and your stories.

Rabbies skye tour
May 2021 • Family
Thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our guide and driver Jodie was very knowledgeable on her Scottish history and was a very helpful and enthusiastic host. The scenery was spectacular, only wish we could have stayed longer on the island. The roads were a bit hairy, so we were grateful that Jodie was doing the driver.

May 2021
I took part in a 3 day trip to Skye. Even though I have been to this type of trip many times. I have visited over 25 countries. Despite everything, Scotland surprised me incredibly. I did not know that there are so many things here that you will not see, hear or experience anywhere else. "" It's a great choice. When ordering, I recommend only to refrain from choosing your accommodation. There may be times when you get distracted. Aim at Andy as a guide. An amazing person, great storyteller with enormous knowledge .

An amazing unforgettable experience. Not to be missed

An amazing unforgettable experience.

Andy, our guide, took us to many beautiful spots and perfectly catered our experience to things the group was interested in.

He is very passionate about his job, telling stories and sharing his experiences throughout the days on each part of the tour, teaching us about history, geography, culture and answering any and all questions we had. He's incredibly friendly and easy to talk to and made the whole trip something I'll never forget.

perfect three-day get-away, an escape to beautiful Skye
Oct 2020 • Solo
Absolutely thrilled to have been escorted around Isle of Skye by Cameron, very funny and highly personable.

Full of interesting anecdotes, good humour, jokes and relevant information about Scotland and Isle of Skye in particular, interspersed with an excellent selection of music expertly themed to the areas we were driving through and the sights we could see out of the window. Eclectic variety of musical genre and styles meant that it was fun and hugely enjoyable.

Seven of us on the bus, three individual travellers and two pairs of friends - very social and good fun.

Itinerary was nicely spaced and we saw a mixture of landscapes, towns and castles etc - including opportunities to do a bit of exploration walking in the towns, valleys and seaside locations. Tips on where to eat and what to see when at each of our stops were spot-on, well timed so we were relaxed but never a moment to get bored.
