T03 Two Day Great Glen, Isle of Skye, Isle of Mull and Great Glen Tour - From Seventeen Hours

Scenery along the road to SkyeYou are collected from your Highland Hotel, B&B, the airport or station and we head along the side of Loch Ness stopping at various view points. 

Next 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.

Eventually we arrive at one of Scotland's most photographed castles, Eilean Donan where time is provided for a visit.

We cross the arching Skye Bridge to the Isle of Skye providing opportunities for a picnic lunch on the Sleat Peninsula or lunch at the Eilean Iarmain Hotel at Isle Ornsay or at the Clan Donald Centre.

Then two ferry trips as we cross back to the mainland from Armadale to Mallaig, with great views of the Black Cuillins, and then later cross to the Isle of Mull from Kilchoan directly into Tobermory, the island capital, and setting for the childrens' TV series, Balamory - a perfect place to overnight.

tobermory, isle of mullThe next morning there is ample time to visit Duart Castle (Clan seat of Clan Maclean). It dates from the 12th century and was restored by Sir Fitzroy Maclean in the early years of the 20th century. It has featured in the movies "When Eight Bells Toll" - 1971, and "Entrapment" - 1999.

After a while on the Isle of Mull, we take the shorter ferry ride from Fishnish to Lochaline. Very scenic, this trip also provides excellent views of the Sound of Mull and the ruins of Ardtornish Castle.

Now we journey along the delightful coast road, crossing on the Corran Ferry to Fort William, where there may be time to take an optional cable car ride up Aonach Mor. Then more photo opportunities as we return along the Great Glen back to Inverness, taking, where possible, different scenic back roads.

 

It should be noted that ferries can be cancelled in poor weather and in that case we will take alternative routes. Also, during the winter, early spring and late autumn, daylight may curtail some aspects of the tour.
