2 Day Isle of Skye and Highland Glens Tour

2 Day Isle of Skye and Highland Glens Tour from Inverness

Make more of your trip to the Highlands and the Isle of Skye with a two day tour from Inverness returning back via Lochaber and the Great Glen. Explore the stunning scenery of the Highlands and the Isle of Skye and discover its ancient history and culture.

Day 1 begins at Inverness where we follow Loch Ness before turning west towards Loch Cluanie and Glen Shiel. Continuing on to the Five Sisters of Kintail mountains we take a detour up Mam Ratagan for a breath-taking view of the Highlands! At Eilean Donan Castle we explore its ancient and historic past before crossing the bridge to the Isle of Skye and heading for the dramatic Black Cuillin. The late afternoon takes us to the Trotternish Peninsula for stunning views of the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the Quiraing before our return to Portree for our overnight stop.

Day 2 begins from Portree on a tour down the Sleat Peninsula to Armadale. Leaving Skye we take a stunning 40 minute ferry journey across the Sound of Sleat to Mallaig on the Scottish mainland. We continue along the ‘Road to the Isles’ to Glenfinnan with its historic monument commemorating the Jacobites and Bonnie Prince Charlie and the great Victorian viaduct. The ruins of Inverlochy Castle are our next stop - a wonderful hidden gem of a castle that’s nearly 800 years old - before we begin our return journey to Inverness along the Great Glen. Along the way we stop at Fort Augustus to view the locks and the Caledonian Canal at Loch Ness.

What to expect on a 2 Day Isle of Skye and Highland Glens Tour...

I can promise our tour will include all the wonderful views shown above... but maybe not the weather - we are the land of four seasons in one day!
