Escape Inverness and embark on an unforgettable journey through the stunning Scottish Highlands to the enchanting Isle of Skye. Our two day adventure takes in some of Scotland’s most iconic sights, with non-stop stunning scenery along the way. Start your experience with an optional cruise on Loch Ness to the ruins of Urquhart Castle. Sit back as we drive the wildly beautiful road to Skye; winding through Glen Shiel, passing Eilean Donan Castle, and crossing the Skye Bridge to reach our island destination. Marvel at the Cuillin Mountains, on route to the magical Fairy Pools, before settling for the night in the pretty town of Portree. Listen to myths and legends, as we drive across the island’s otherworldly landscape, stopping at the Quiraing, Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, and the Old Man of Storr. We leave the island in the afternoon and arrive back into Inverness early evening.
