Full description

Explore the Isle of Skye from Inverness and marvel at some of the most dramatic landscapes Scotland has to offer. See Loch Ness, visit Eilean Donan Castle, Portree, Kilt Rock, and much more.

Depart Inverness and travel South, along the shoreline of Loch Ness to Invermoriston. Stop for a short break at Loch Ness which is 24 miles long, over 700ft deep, famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness monster.

Continue to the picturesque Eilean Donan Castle, situated on its own island at the head of Loch Duic. Take time to explore one of Scotland’s most photographed castles and its atmospheric surroundings.

Journey to the Isle of Skye, passing over the Skye Bridge and on to the small village of Portree for a lunchtime stop. Portree, although a small harbor village, is the capital of Skye, and is surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills.

Take in its beautiful surroundings while enjoying lunch with views of the boats. Begin touring the island with stops at Kilt Rock, Lealt Falls, the Old Man of Storr, and perhaps Strome Viewpoint.

The trip to Skye on 7th October was brilliant despite the weather being so awful. Our guide Ryan was great and he managed to show us things and keep our spirits up even though we were wet for the majority of the day. We were even able to make a few unscheduled stops in locations of interest. Highly recommend The Granary for lunch in Portree. A full day of spectacular scenery, highly recommend booking and don’t let the weather put you off.

We had the most amazing day even though the weather didn’t cooperate. Our guide, Chris, certainly is very knowledgeable with Scottish history and real-time happenings. We enjoyed every moment of the tour. He even worked around the itinerary to make sure we’ve experienced everything our trip could offer. Highly recommendable!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Absolutely loved the tour we took today.. Ryan was a great tour operator and made sure we enjoyed the full day and capture the most amazing photos we could. The eilean do an castle was fantastic and the Isle of skye was breathe taking from the mountains to the waterfalls and coastal views. I will definitely be taking a tour with tumberbush again.
