4 Day Isle of Skye and Highlands Tour
Four days of beautiful Lochs, stunning Glens, breath-taking Mountains and historic Castles!
Day 1 - Departing from Edinburgh we travel north over the Firth of Forth towards the Central Highlands. We explore the beautiful village of Dunkeld and its historic ruined cathedral before our drive northwards takes us to the Cairngorm National Park. Arriving near Inverness by the mid-afternoon we visit Culloden Battlefield followed by the Bronze Age Clava Cairns and Standing Stones before our overnight stop.
Day 2 - Departing from Inverness we journey along the banks of Loch Ness to explore the medieval ruins of Urquhart Castle. We then tour west through Glen Shiel and past the Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range towards the iconic Eilean Donan Castle. The late afternoon takes us across the bridge to the Isle of Skye and the base of the dramatic Black Cuillin mountain ridge before our arrival in Portree for our overnight stop.
Day 3 - Departing from Portree we travel north to explore the Trotternish Peninsula including the Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock before we take a drive up the old cattle pass road to the stunning Quiraing. The afternoon takes us south through Skye towards Glengarry where we join the Great Glen - the ancient geological fault line that cuts through the Highlands - on our way to Fort William for our overnight stop.
Day 4 - Departing from Fort William we travel south to explore the dramatic scenery (and dark history) of Glencoe. After a short detour down the breath-taking Glen Etive, the afternoon takes us through the haunting landscape of Rannoch Moor. A beautiful journey by the Trossachs leads us to our final stop at the imposing Stirling Castle where we take time to explore its fascinating history before our return to Edinburgh.
