Inverness to Isle of Skye
Leaving your accommodation in the morning in Inverness, Day 1 starts with a trip to Rogie Falls in contin. Here, depending on the time of year you will be able to see the salmon jumping up the waterfall, viewing them from the suspension bridge which has stunning views. You would need to spend about 1 hour on site. Our second on route stop will be at Eilean Donan Castle, a beautiful 13th Century Castle located in the village of Dornie. You can purchase a ticket and visit the castle inside. We will then head onwards to Skye, taking you to the the Fairy Pools. This visit will require you to walk approximately 2.5 Km (each way as the car parking is not close) via a gravel path bordered with grass, heather, peat and rocks. It is well worth visiting! After this visit, driving towards Portree, the capital of the island, there is an opportunity to take a picture at Sligacham Old Bridge - locals say that if you dunk your face into the stream of water, you will be transported to the underworld and attain eternal beauty. First night to be spent in Portree.
Isle of Skye
On Day 2, we will be heading around the island to visit its main natural beauty spots: the Old Man of Storr, which has some stunning scenery; Kilt Rock and Mealt Falls Viewpoint where an impressive waterfall can be seen; the impressive country views of Quiraing, where many films were using the local scenery; Staffin and An Corran Beach where you will find dinosaurs footprints, Kilvaxter and the recently discovered iron age tunnel; Uig, a port which is the main point to visit Fairy Castle, Fairy Circle, Fairy Glen and RHA Waterfalls; and to end the day, a stop at the most westerly tip of Skye, Neist Point, one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland. After reaching the west coast, we drive back to Portree for the 2nd night sleep at Isle of Skye.
Isle of Skye to Inverness
On your last day, we are leaving Portree and heading towards Inverness. Our first on route stop will be at the famous and mysterious Loch Ness. The Loch Ness is 22.5 miles long and we will stop in the village of Drumnadrochit, so that you can visit the local shops and the Loch Ness Centre & Exhibition. The village is also a good place to have lunch. After having seen Ness (yes, you did see Ness), we will be taking you to the ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle by Loch Ness. Standing perched above the deepest point of the loch, the castle is very popular with tourists. From Urquhart Castle, we will return you to your accommodation.
