Isle of Skye Tour Itinerary

Are you ready to be a part of an extraordinary 3 Day Isle of Skye tour? Join us on a small group or private adventure from Edinburgh or Glasgow. We’ll be delving deep into the bonnie and wild heart of the Highlands, exploring castles that’ll make your jaw drop, lochs that’ll take your breath away and mountains that’ll touch the very sky.

But hold on to your kilts! We’re not just sticking to the beaten track. Oh no, we’ll be trekking off the path to discover hidden corners of Scotland to immerse ourselves in stories of epic Clan battles, mischievous fairy folklore and vicious Vikings. So buckle up your boots and get ready to be enchanted by what lies ahead. Here’s a wee taste of what’s in store:

Day 1: Exploring the Highlands of Scotland

As we journey westward through the Scottish Highlands, we’ll explore some of the most enchanting castles Scotland has to offer, including Eilean Donan, Doune, and Finlarig. Passing through Glencoe, renowned for its haunting beauty and intriguing history as ‘the valley of the weeping.’ We’ll cross over to the Isle of Skye, with stops at Sligachan and Portree before reaching our accommodation.

Day 2: Full Day on the Isle of Skye

Our first full day on Skye will unveil the wonders of the Trotternish Peninsula, where we’ll discover iconic landscapes such as Fairy Glen, the Quiraing, Kilt Rock and the ruins of Duntulm Castle. We’ll pause for a delightful lunch in the picturesque town of Portree before venturing to Dunvegan to explore one of Scotland’s oldest inhabited castles, still the residence of the MacLeod clan chief.

Day 3: Hike the Old Man of Storr

Before bidding farewell to Skye, you’ll have two enticing options for the morning: ascend the iconic Old Man of Storr or indulge in the beauty of the Fairy Pools followed by a tour of Talisker Distillery. As we make our way back to Edinburgh, we’ll make captivating stops at Bruar Falls, The Hermitage in Dunkeld, and Dunkeld Cathedral.

With each stop on our Isle of Skye excursion, you’ll uncover the hidden treasures of Scotland’s western isles, forging memories to cherish for a lifetime.
