Route

After an early start, we travel through the spectacular mountains of Wester Ross towards the iconic Eilean Donan Castle. You have time to visit the castle before we travel over the bridge to the Isle of Skye. We then head through the mountainous heart of the island before arriving in the bustling harbour town of Portree for lunch.

The afternoon takes you around the world famous natural beauty of the Trotternish Peninsula. Your experienced guide will show you all (delete) the most beautiful places this region has to offer, including The Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and Quiraing.

In the early evening, we make our way back to the mainland through the stunning and majestic Glen Shiel, along the shores of Loch Clunie towards the Great Glen. The final part of our journey takes us along the banks of mighty Loch Ness, where the legendary monster may wave farewell to your day.

Customer Reviews

Incredible Day Trip!

Rebecca Sather Jenkins Posted on 26/04/2017

Our guide Heather made sure our day was filled with adventure and beautiful sights. Leaving from Inverness, we visited a number of spots including Loch Ness, Eilean Donan Castle, and a few beautiful spots on Skye itself. Heather provided a wonderful amount of information not just on Scottish history and culture but also on wildlife and geological processes, which was awesome. The bus is small and cozy, and has USB charging ports too! Highly recommended!

FAQs

Do you offer hotel pickups in the departure cities?

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.

Is there parking close to the departure point?

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.

When should I get to the departure point?

Arrive 15 minutes before your departure time. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour?

If you're late for your tour, our cancellation policy applies.

What are your cancellation policies?

We have a cancellation period of three days for our one day tours, and 21 days for longer 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.

What is a guaranteed departure?

It's simple: you book, you go. This means we'll never cancel your tour because of a minimum numbers policy.

Can I pre-book a specific seat?

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.

Are there toilets on the bus?

Unfortunately, we have no on-board toilet facilities, but you'll have regular comfort breaks.

Do you take children on your tours?

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.

How much time do I get off the bus?

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.

Why do you exclude visitor attractions?

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.

Do we need to bring our own lunch?

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.

Should I tip the driver-guide?

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.

What about travel insurance?

We advise you take out travel insurance. You can click here for excellent rates.

I have more questions, who can help me?

If you have any more questions, call us on +44(0)131 226 3133, email tours@rabbies.com, or check out our full FAQs.
