爱莲朵娜城堡 (Eilean Donan Castle) - 一个华丽浪漫的13世纪城堡，在历史上曾经阻止了维京人入侵。城堡曾作为电影007系列《黑日危机》中军机处的取景地，据说在城堡前接吻爱情可以天长地久。
格伦科 (Glen Coe) - 苏格兰高地上最迷人的地貌，美国国家地理杂志的拍摄线路，电影007系列《大破杀幕天机》中，邦德曾开着阿斯顿马丁从格伦科谷驰骋而过。
奎雷英山口 (Quiraing Mountain Pass) - 天空岛上最雄伟壮阔的景点，这是一座高达37米的锯齿状山峰，著名的科幻电影《普罗米修斯》就曾在这里取景，也让天空岛被誉为“翼之岛”。
内斯特角灯塔 (Neist Point) - 站在世界边缘的灯塔，是世界最美丽的十座灯塔之一，也是观赏海豚，鲸鱼，鼠海豚和鲨鱼的好位置。
五姐妹山 (Five Sisters of Kintail) - 传说中五个苏格兰姐妹等着爱尔兰的的未婚夫来迎娶，却迟迟没有等到，她们死后，当地的巫师为了让她们的美丽永远留住，就将她们变成了现在的这五座山。
尼斯湖 (Loch Ness) - 尼斯湖的储水量比英格兰和威尔士所有湖泊相加还要多，大概也是因为这样才让水怪得以藏身。
在这趟旅程中，您将有三天的时间来探索天空岛美丽的景点，浪漫的故事，保存完整的盖尔文化和秘密。 您的旅程将从爱丁堡向北行驶，经过苏格兰的中心，了解到苏格兰和英格兰之间的战斗历史。 穿过斯凯桥后您将到达这座与陆地隔绝的岛屿，旅途中您将看到激发了无数神话和传说的迷人美景和神奇地貌。晚上您将入住岛上可爱的小镇波特里（Portree），傍晚时分可以漫步在苏格兰的北海边，欣赏美丽的海景。
学生, 60岁以上的老人, 5到15岁之间的儿童 (非常抱歉，我们无法携带5岁以下的孩童)
您将在早上离开格拉斯哥，乘坐Rabbie’s的豪华小型客车向西行驶。这一部分旅程特别适合对苏格兰历史感兴趣的乘客。您将逐一经过林利斯戈宫（Linlithgow Palace），斯特灵城堡，华莱士纪念碑和杜恩城堡（Castle Doune）（《巨蟒与圣杯》《古战场传奇》《权利的游戏》等取景地），并在卡伦德（Callander）小镇稍作休息。您的冒险将由此继续向北，经过Lubnaig湖周围壮观的风景和兰诺克沼地（Rannoch Moor）的荒野，而高地的景色从这里只会变得更加美丽。
您的旅程将沿着A82号公路前行，通过壮丽的格伦科谷，这里是A82公路途中最美的一段，也是007影片Skyfall的取景地之一，景色苍凉而豪迈。1692年的麦克唐纳（Macdonald）大屠杀在此发生，也令这一景色诡异的山谷凭添了更多别样氛围，格伦科自此也被称为垂泪的山谷（Valley of Weeping）。
午饭后离开威廉堡您将经过英国的最高的山，本尼维斯（Ben Nevis）。继续在“通往小岛的路上”向西行驶，您将经过五姐妹山，充分领略苏格兰高地让人窒息的绝色美景。然后，您可以停下来参观华丽的爱莲朵娜城堡，这是苏格兰最著名的城堡之一。穿过斯凯桥（Skye Bridge）就到达天空岛了，司机将顺着逶迤的海岸线向北朝着小岛的首都波特里行驶。在经过无数令人叹为观止的美丽后，您将到达海滨小镇波特里，在入住登记后，您还有足够的时间出去探索这个城市。
天在天空岛上的行程相对比较灵活，根据天气情况会有不同的可能性。我们的司机/导游将用他们的丰富的经验和专业知识带您度过美好的一天。 波特里北部是绵延的Trotternish山脊与其壮观的悬崖和岩层，老人峰（Old Man of Storr ）就坐落在Trotternish 的山脚下。"Storr"来自于挪威语，意思是伟大的人。老人峰是整个天空岛最为知名的景色，前几年全英风光摄影比赛的第一名所拍摄的主题就是老人峰。
苏格兰裙边悬崖在天空岛的最北处，因为形状有些像苏格兰格子裙而出名。这里有高耸的悬崖，壮丽的瀑布和广阔无边的大海，让您充分感受到海边悬崖的魅力。奎雷英山口的锯齿山峰，也让天空岛被赋予“翼之岛”的美名。而天空岛西部的风景又和北部的壮观有些许不同，在悬崖边的内斯特角灯塔（Neist Point）被誉为世界最美丽的十座灯塔之一，如果幸运，您还可以看见海豚，鲨鱼和鲸鱼。邓韦根城堡是传说中苏格兰最古老的城堡，它从13世纪起就矗立在海边的，保卫着斯凯岛。麦克劳德家族最有名的就是家族的仙女旗（Fairy Flag）了，相传这神圣的旗帜有神奇的力量，当在战斗中迎风招展时，居住在城堡里的军队就能打败他们的敌人。

The UK and Ireland's historic city centres are full of narrow streets and winding roads. So, to speed up your departure, we only pick up from our central meeting points. What's more is leaving the city using the most direct route also reduces the carbon footprint of our tours.
We don't recommend bringing your car into the centre of our departure cities. It can be hard to find parking, and there are excellent public transportation services.
Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.
If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.
We have a cancellation period of 48 hours for our one day tours, 15 days for two to nine day tours, and 21 days for 10+ day tours. If cancelled outside this period, we'll give you a full refund minus a 10% admin charge. If you cancel inside this period, refunds are at our discretion. Click here to view full terms and conditions.
Your tour will always follow the itinerary as closely as possible. While there are ongoing coronavirus restrictions throughout the UK and Ireland, itineraries are more likely to change than usual as opening hours and capacities at many visitor attractions are reduced and subject to change. Your driver-guide will keep you up to up to date on the road, and we'll try to get in touch about any large changes prior to your departure.
It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.
Due to logistical reasons, we're unable to let you pre-book a seat on the bus. But our comfortable 16-seat mini-coaches have huge windows. So, you'll always get a good view.
Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.
We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.
We regret we don't carry children under the age of five on our scheduled tours.
You can ask us about the tours we recommend for younger children. And if your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide them with a suitable booster seat.
We want you to enjoy Britain and Ireland. And we believe the best way to do this is to get you off the mini-coach and out exploring. So, we give you plenty of time to take photos, go walking, and explore ancient ruins.
We exclude visitor attractions in your tour price because it lets you travel your way. It means you can pamper yourself with a luxury lunch or skip an attraction whenever you feel like it.
You don't need to. We stop in small towns, villages, and rural eateries where you can choose whatever meal pleases both your taste buds and your budget.
Let's be honest, our driver-guides would never refuse a cheeky bonus. But it's up to you, and the amount is entirely at your discretion.
We advise you take out travel insurance.
You're protected by ABTOT when you chose to let us reserve your accommodation on a multi-day tour. This means you can claim back anything you've paid us if we become bankrupt. Read our terms and conditions for more information.
