Isle of Skye and the Highlands Weekend Tour

Skye, voted the 4th best island in the world by National Geographic.

About the Tour

You simply can't resist a visit to Scotland's most loved island, the Isle of Skye, the forth best island in the world according to National Geographic and the largest and most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The stunning scenery is the main attraction; with natural beauty like velvet moors, jagged mountains, sparkling lochs and towering sea cliffs. It is just impossible to describe the natural beauty of this island in a few words. This tour will take you from the lowland to the very Highlands of Scotland through the stunning and breathtaking sceneries.

You will have the chance to not only explore the best of the Highlands, but you will be also impressed by the natural and iconic landmarks of Isle of Skye including Eilean Donan Castle, hiking in Old Man of Storr (featured in 'Sign of the Times' by Harry Styles, Transformer 2, Prometheus and more), the impressive Kilt Rock, Mealt Falls, the beautiful Cuillins, Sligachan Bridge/River, Loch Mealt, Lealt Gorge, Lealt Falls, Portree and its picturesque coloured houses on the harbour, Castle Moil, Skye Bridge and much more!
