The drive up to the Isle of Skye is not just any drive; it is one which goes along the legendary Loch Ness. Then there is a stop at the Eilean Donan Castle where you will have time to purchase your entry ticket meander through the castle's corridors. If only these walls would talk as they would have much to tell you on protecting the land from the Vikings, being caught in the middle of disagreeable clan chiefs to seeing more than its fair share of action during the Jacobite Uprising. After Eilenan Donan, it is time to see a true jewel of Scotland, the Isle of Skye. It is here you will see the Old Man of Storr, Lealt Falls, Kilt Rock and Portree.
We depart Inverness, for a full-day adventure to the magical Isle of Skye. Drive along the world-famous Loch Ness, and towards the west coast, where mountains give way to vast sea lochs. Venture inside Eilean Donan Castle on an optional tour.
Cross the Skye Bridge, and learn about the island’s history and mythology and enjoy the scenic drive, arriving back to Inverness approx. 8pm.
