Tour Description

This one-day adventure takes you through some of Scotland's most iconic scenery – to reach the iconic and beautiful Isle of Skye. You’ll also get to explore Eilean Donan Castle before we return to Inverness.


An enjoyable journey to Skye...

There are fabulous views over the Moray Firth to take in as we leave Inverness over the Kessock Bridge. You’ll enjoy a comfort break in the lovely Strathcarron situated at the head of Loch Carron, a sea loch, and between River Carron and River Taodail.


Over the Sea to Skye...

Next you’ll cross onto the little island of Eilean Ban, where Gavin Maxwell, the author of the "Ring of Bright Water", lived for a while before you cross over the bridge to Skye. Your tour of this magical island takes in the stunningly beautiful sight of the Cuillin Hills and the Sligachan Bridge on the road to Portree, the capital of Skye. This will be your lunch-time stop, where you can enjoy fish and chips in the colourful harbour – just watch out for the seagulls!

Discover Scotland’s most iconic Castle; Eilean Donan*...

This is one of Scotland's most picturesque castles and is perched on its own island at the head of Loch Duich. You will have enough time here to tour the castle inside and out.

Homeward Bound via Loch Ness...

Your day ends with a bit of monster spotting as you drive along the shore of Loch Ness. You'll then stop close to the loch at the little village of Invermoriston, where you can take in the views and see a delightful ruined bridge which was designed by Thomas Telford, the same engineer who created the Caledonian Canal.

Tour Reviews

We only had one day left on our trip and were so happy this tour let us see some of Scotland's beautiful places. If we had done it on our own we would not have seen even half of the things we did. Our guide was Allison and she was funny, kind, extremely knowledgable and added to the experience. I am not usually a "tour" person but this one really won me over. (Reviewed by Mark T TripAdvisor August 2016)

Ian, our driver was excellent. He was also a highlight of the tour - sharing lots of interesting stories and information about the area and the places we visited. The castle was amazing and the tour of Skye was beautiful. Portree is a very pretty town. (Reviewed by Wally M TripAdvisor October 2016)

The trip was fun and we got back all too soon, Hats off to Alison and The Highland Experience. Glad we found them! (Reviewed by MooreaLover TripAdvisor August 2016)
