Our 1 day Isle of Skye tour from Inverness takes in some of the most dramatic and stunning landscapes Scotland has to offer! See Loch Ness, visit Eilean Donan Castle, Portree, Kilt Rock and much more on our Skye tour from Inverness; capital of the Highlands.

After departing from Inverness we travel south, hugging the shoreline of Loch Ness to Invermoriston. Loch Ness, 24 miles long and over 700ft deep, is most famous for its sightings of the Loch Ness Monster, affectionately known as ‘Nessie’. Invermoriston is only about 30 miles from Inverness, we stop for a short break here, allowing you the chance to perhaps see the monster yourself!

After Loch Ness, our Skye Tour continues on to Eilean Donan Castle*; one of Scotland’s most photographed castles. The castle is situated on its own island at the head of Loch Duich. We take time here to explore the castle and its atmospheric surroundings.

After Eilean Donan, we continue our journey to the Isle of Skye, passing over the Skye Bridge and on to the small village of Portree for our lunchtime stop. Portree, although a small harbour village, is the capital of Skye, and is surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills. Its beautiful surroundings make it a perfect stop to have lunch and enjoy views of the boats.

Moving on, we visit various points of interest in Skye such as; Kilt Rock for amazing coastal views, take a short walk at Lealt Falls and admire the Old Man of Storr. After spending the afternoon exploring Skye and admiring its stunning scenery we will stop off on the return journey at Strome Viewpoint for photos of Loch Carron before continuing homeward bound to Inverness, where your Isle of Skye day tour ends.
