Half Day Eilean Donan Castle Tour

This tour is ideal for those looking for a half day of touring the Scottish Highlands - with Mountains, Glens, Lochs and a stunning Highland Castle!

The Half Day Eilean Donan Castle tour begins at Inverness where we follow the banks of Loch Ness down past Urquhart Castle. After a short stop for photos near Loch Ness, we continue along Ness-side to Invermoriston. Turning west we journey along through Glen Moriston on the way to Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel.

Loch Cluanie, Scottish Highlands

Loch Duich awaits us at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains, one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the Scottish Highlands. Before arrving at Eilean Donan Castle we take a short detour up Mam Ratagan for a breath-taking view of the Highlands!

Five Sisters of Kintail from Mam Ratagan

At Eilean Donan Castle, the ancestral home of the Clan Macrae, we have over 1½ hours to explore the castle’s ancient and historic past - with time for a visit into the castle to discover its secrets - as well as savouring the wonderful Highland views around the castle.

Eilean Donan Castle from Dornie

Leaving Eilean Donan Castle we take a detour across to Dornie for a wonderful castle panorama view before our return to Inverness.
