Skye and Eilean Donan Castle Small-Group Day Tour from Inverness

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet a driver at a central location in Inverness, then board a top of the range, 16-seat Mercedes mini-coach for the 70-mile (112-km) trip to Eilean Donan Castle. Drive past the famous Loch Ness—home of the legendary monster—and pause for a photo opportunity before arriving at the castle. Enjoy ample time to visit the castle, which dominates a tiny, tidal island at the confluence of three lochs (entrance fees own expense, roughly £7.50).
    From Eilean Donan, continue to the Isle of Skye over the Skye Bridge, which commands sweeping views of the Inner Hebrides. Drive into the mountainous heart of the island, then stretch your legs at the harbor town of Portree, where you have a break for lunch.
    The afternoon is all about exploring the superb Trotternish Peninsula, visiting a series of the area’s scenic highlights, including The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the Quiraing, a landslide on the eastern side of Meall na Suiramach.
    Take the return trip to the mainland, passing the majestic Glen Shiel, Loch Clunie, and the Great Glen along the way. Conclude the tour at the original departure point in Inverness.

    It was breathtaking - as we have learned full history of Scotland from the driver/guide I must say a few good words. He was very knowledgeable and described everything with minute details and with humour too. I strongly recommend this to all, individual or group.
