A03i Inverness to Isle of Skye Tour seeing Eilean Donan Castle, then Elgol or Sleat or Portree, returning via the Black Isle. This is our shortest Skye tour if you have a deadline for a return to Inverness - Nine Hours

Mountain scenery from one of our Skye tours.

Tours are exclusive and can be booked for any dates. However, some people have offered the spare seats on their tour as shown in green below

  For a full list of shared dates see the calendar page.

You are collected from your Inverness hotel, B&B, the airport or station and we head along the side of Loch Ness stopping at various view points, perhaps to photograph Urquhart Castle or the Telford bridge at Invermoriston. 

Scenery along the road to SkyeWe design the tour based on your requirements and flex the itinerary depending on the length of time you spend at each beauty spot or heritage location.

So, if you spend a long time photographing hairy coos, we will adjust the day to compensate. Yes, you'll miss something, but you'll never know it. You'd need days to see everything on this route. If you make short stops we'll add in additional features you were not even expecting. That is what personal guiding is all about - you and what you find interesting and enjoyable.

After Invermoriston we take a stunning drive towards the romantic Isle of Skye. En route is some of Scotland's most dramatic scenery including the renowned Five Sisters of Kintail which you can see in this photograph.

Eventually we arrive at one of Scotland's most photographed castles. Eilean Donan Castle where time can be provided for a visit. Note that the castle is closed in the winter. Again talk to your guide about options if you do or don't enter it.

We cross the arching Skye bridge to the Isle. Then we can go north to the island capital - Portree, south towards Armadale or west for Elgol. Your ultimate choice may be determined by weather, as this tour offers great views of the Cuillins either from the Sleat Peninsula or from remote Elgol, where Bonnie Prince Charlie hid out from the redcoats. Lunch options include a range of cafes, hotels and restaurants in Broadford, Portree or at the Clan Donald Centre.

Please note that north Skye (Trotternish, Dunvegan and Talisker) can only be visited on other tours.

On the return journey we join the Lochcarron road to enjoy some stunning scenery.

Isle of Skye

The leisurely drive back to Inverness takes in the Black Isle and views of both the Moray Firth and Beauly Firth.

It should be noted that in poor weather we may recommend alternative routes and will discuss this with you on the day. Also, during the winter, early spring and late autumn, daylight may curtail some aspects of the tour.
