At Eilean Donan Castle we explore the castle’s ancient past - with time for a visit into the castle to discover its secrets - and a mid-morning coffee break, before we cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye, where the spectacular Cuillin mountains greet us in the distance.
Our journey through the Isle of Skye takes us to the base of the Red hills and the dramatic Black Cuillin mountain ridge. We stop near the old bridge at Sligachan (great place to take a short walk) where we get the best view of the peaks of the Black Cuillin.
Arriving in Portree we are greeted by a beautiful harbour surrounded by a scenic and historic town. With a stop for at least 1½ hours, you have lots of time to enjoy a late lunch and explore the harbour and discover the Hebridean culture of the town before we begin our journey back to Inverness.
The tour covers approx. 240 miles over 10 hours which allows for lots of stops and time out of the vehicle enjoying the scenery We have 2 long stops on the tour both for over 1½ hours - at Eilean Donan Castle (mid-morning) and at Portree (late lunch). Additionally, we have at least 6 viewpoint and photo stops between 10 and 15 mins.
...and because it's the Highlands and we can have "four seasons in one day"!
