About This Deal

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Eilean Donan Castle, Kyle of Lochalsh IV40 8DX Scotland

Our first stop is at the iconic Eilean Donan Castle. This castle is instantly recognisable the world-over as it has featured in many films and innumerable Scottish souvenirs! We will stop at our favourite vantage point here to enable you to take some photos and admire the majestic beauty of this iconic sight in its wonderful coastal location.
Please note that there will NOT be an opportunity to visit the castle.


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Portree, Portree, Isle of Skye, The Hebrides, Scotland

Upon arrival in Portree your guide will point you in the direction of the harbour viewpoint; from here you can admire the pretty pastel-coloured houses that the town is famous for.
With its quirky shops, cute cafes, picturesque location and interesting sights you will certainly find plenty to occupy you during our 45 minute stop here.
This will be your opportunity to purchase lunch from one of the town's bakeries or yummy takeaways.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: The Old Man of Storr, Scotland

As we drive north we will stop at a loch-side viewpoint, where you will have chance to admire the unique rock formation of the Old Man of Storr. This 50 metre high pinnacle juts out from the awesome Trotternish Ridge, an area which will be widely recognised from blockbuster films including Ronin 47, Macbeth, Snow White & The Huntsman, Prometheus and The BFG.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Kilt Rock, Scotland

Kilt Rock is an exposed sea cliff which resembles the traditional Highland kilt, and which never fails to impress our guests. It also boasts a waterfall which cascades 60ft (180m) into the Sound of Raasay below - a truly unique sight, and particularly so when the wind blows the waterfall back up the cliff!

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Quiraing Viewfield Road, Portree IV51 9ES Scotland

A visit to Skye just would not be complete without visiting the Quiraing. On a clear day you will be able to enjoy views of the Outer Hebrides and the Scottish mainland, framed by pinnacles, cliffs and great buttresses. However, it is on a windy and wet day that you will really be able to appreciate the supernatural power of this place, as you watch the clouds swirl around you, and your spine starts to tingle.
You will have around 30 minutes here - plenty of time to go for a short hike and find a peaceful stop to to truly enjoy Skye's magic.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Fairy Pools, Road to Glenbrittle Glenbrittle, IV47 8TA Scotland

You will have time to hike up to this beautiful series of pools and waterfalls, which are famed for their crystal clear water.
The scenic walk to the first pool is slightly uphill and takes around 20 minutes (distance is 0.7 miles) and the most impressive waterfall is 5 minutes further on (0.9 miles total). Most guests spend their time around this area, admiring the famous crystal clear waters, and the stunning Cuillin Mountain backdrop. There are photo opportunities aplenty, and your guide will be available to take group and couple shots if you wish.
Please be aware that the walk to the Fairy Pools and back is a total of around 1.5 miles and will take around 40 minutes, so you do require a moderate level of fitness. Also, as you need to cross stepping stones over a couple of streams you need to be stable on your feet, and ensure that you wear sensible hiking boots/shoes. This is not a tourist attraction, it’s nature at its most beautiful, so don’t expect pavements or bridges!

Duration: 1 hour 15 minutes

Pass By: Skye Bridge, A87, Kyle of Lochalsh Scotland

After seeing all of the highlights of the Isle of Skye we will head back over the bridge. From here we head back east, through stunning mountains and picture-postcard Highland scenery, and your guide will fill you in on the bloody history that led to these once thriving glens becoming the desolate and lonely places they are today.

Pass By: Loch Ness, Scotland

Near the end of our journey we will get our first glimpse of that body of water the Highlands is so famous for; Loch Ness. As we drive along, hugging the shores of the loch, your guide will regale you with the colourful history of the world-famous monster, whilst you keep your eyes peeled for her!

Stop At: Urquhart Castle, A82, Drumnadrochit IV63 6XJ Scotland

It's our last photo stop of the day, and it's certainly a WOW one! We will view this magnificent medieval castle from above, admiring its location on a distinctive peninsula jutting out onto the mysterious Loch Ness.
From here, it is a short drive back to Inverness, where you will arrive back with memories to last a lifetime!

Duration: 10 minutes
