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 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.
