2 Day Clan Macleod Private Tour
Discover the ancient history and traditions of one of Scotland's most celebrated clans – the Macleods - with a two day private tour from Inverness through the West Highlands to the Isle of Skye.
Day 1 – Begins from Inverness where we visit Culloden Battlefield to explore the bloody history surrounding the final Jacobite Rising (though the Dunvegan chief followed the government, the Macleods of Raasay were active Jacobite supporters and fought at Culloden). We then follow the Great Glen down the banks of Loch Ness before turning west to Glen Shiel and the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains. At Eilean Donan Castle we enjoy a brief viewpoint break before we cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye and on to explore the magnificent Cuillin mountain range. Our journey takes us to the old bridge at Sligachan for a dramatic view of the peaks of the Black Cuillin in ancient Macleod lands, before our arrival in Portree for our overnight stay.
Day 2 – Departing from Portree we spend the morning exploring the magnificent Dunvegan Castle, ancestral home of the clan Macleod of Dunvegan and Harris including a visit to the ruined St Mary’s Church in Kilmuir, the final resting place of the last five chiefs of the Macleods. The afternoon takes us back through Skye, passing the Isle of Raasay in the distance (ancestral home of the Macleods of Raasay) before heading over the bridge and through the West Highlands to Inverness.
