Isle of Skye Discovery Tour from Inverness

A great day of stunning Highland scenery including Eilean Donan Castle along with a visit across to the beautiful Sleat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye. This is our shortest tour to the Isle of Skye – ideal if you have limited time or would like a more compact touring day.

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. Loch Duich awaits us at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains with the stunning Eilean Donan Castle in the distance.

Eilean Donan Castle, Scottish Highlands

At Eilean Donan Castle we explore its ancient past with time for a visit into the castle to discover its secrets 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 south to the Sleat Peninsula - known as ‘the garden of Skye’ - a less explored area of Skye that is home to a stunning coastline, heather-clad hills and breath-taking views across the Sound of Sleat.
