Isle of Skye Whisky Tour from Inverness

Enjoy a dram of whisky at the Isle of Skye’s only Malt Whisky Distillery - Talisker. Take a one day tour through the stunning scenery of the Scottish Highlands to the Isle of Skye and Talisker Distillery.

The Isle of Skye Discovery tour begins at Inverness where we follow the banks of Loch Ness down past Urquhart Castle to Invermoriston before turning west through Glen Moriston on the way to Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel then past the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains. Loch Duich awaits us at the foot of the hills where we see the stunning Eilean Donan Castle in the distance where we take time to explore its ancient past and enjoy an early lunch.

Our tour through the Isle of Skye takes us to the base of the Red Hills where we take time to admire the stunning views before heading off to explore the magnificent Cuillin mountain range. We stop near the old bridge at Sligachan where we get a great view of the peaks of the Black Cuillin.
