Overview
Explore the romantic Isle of Skye on a full-day trip from Inverness. Taking in spectacular Highland scenery, your tour passes Loch Ness and the ruins of Eilean Donan Castle before reaching Skye, where gnarly mountain peaks and hillsides swathed in purple heather are framed by soft, sandy beaches. Enjoy lunch in Portree and walks around Loch Slappin and the Strathaird Peninsula. Before returning to Inverness, pass the gorgeous little island of Eilean Ban.
