3 Day Isle of Skye and Highlands Tour
Explore the stunning and dramatic scenery of the Isle of Skye and Highlands with a three day private tour from Inverness that includes the Trotternish and Sleat Peninsulas.
Day 1 – begins from Inverness where we follow the banks of Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle to explore its medieval history. After passing through Glen Moriston and Glen Shiel we take a short detour up Mam Ratagan for one of the best viewpoints in the Scottish Highlands across to the Five Sisters of Kintail. At Eilean Donan Castle we discover its historic past before we cross the bridge to Skye. Our journey through the Isle of Skye takes us to the old bridge at Sligachan and its great view of the peaks of the Black Cuillin, before our arrival in Portree where we will overnight for the next two days.
Day 2 – begins from Portree with a journey to the Trotternish Peninsula for stunning views of the Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock before we take a drive up the old cattle pass road to the Quiraing. Looking down onto the village of Staffin below and across the sea to the north west Highlands, the Quiraing is one of the highlights of the whole trip to the Isle of Skye. Continuing around the peninsula we visit the Museum of Island Life at Kilmuir. The afternoon takes us across to Dunvegan Castle, home of the clan Macleod, one of the Hebrides most powerful clans. As well as being one of the oldest continually inhabited castle in Scotland, Dunvegan also has wonderful gardens to explore before we return to Portree.
Day 3 – begins with time in Portree before we head south to the wonderful Sleat Peninsula, known as ‘the garden of Skye'. One of the less explored areas of Skye, the Sleat Peninsula is home to a stunning coastline, heather-clad hills and plenty of opportunities to get off the beaten path and away from the crowds. We stop at Isleornsay with its stunning views across to the Knoydart peninsula and where we also have the opportunity to enjoy some Hebridean whisky tasting! After visiting Armadale, the early afternoon takes us over to the western side of Sleat to explore the breath-taking coastal scenery before we begin our return journey to Inverness.
