Su viaje


Las Highlands o Tierras Altas incluyen los espectaculares Glencoe y Glenfinnan, Fort William, la impresionante isla de Skye y el castillo de Eilean Donan, que forman un fantástico itinerario por algunos de los mejores paisajes de las Tierras Alas de Escocia.

Para aquellos interesados en fotografía – este es un viaje indispensable. Escocia lo tiene todo: una maravillosa variedad de paisajes, flora y fauna y un clima increíble para conseguir las mejor fotos.

Este recorrido es para quienes hayáis oído hablar de los impresionantes paisajes de Escocia y de la isla de Skye en particular. Estamos seguros de que, si añades un día a nuestro popular tour de tres días por Skye, podrás sacarle aún más partido; un día más para descubrir estos parajes y la posibilidad de viajar más relajadamente, lo que te dará más flexibilidad para bajarte del autobús más a menudo, quedarte admirando el paisaje, dar un paseo con tu conductor/guía o pasar más tiempo sacando fotos a la zona.

Arriving in Armadale, we’ll drive through the Sleat Peninsula before spending time in Glenbrittle with its famed waterfall or Elgol for it’s seascapes and views of the Cuillin. From here we drive to our overnight base in Lochalsh and Skye area for the next two nights.

Amazing Isle of Skye and Guide

Shreyash Posted on 25/06/2019

I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful time in Isle of Skye. Our driver Andrew was very helpful, knowledgeable and adaptable to our needs. We would give the tour 10 plus just because of him. We travelled along with our parents who are 70 plus and they enjoyed the trip the most. The itinerary was brilliant and the entire trip was awesome - Shreyash Ruchi

Beautiful Skye and Highlands with Ewan

Anna Dlugosz Posted on 14/09/2015

Thank you Thank you Ewan McLeod for such a wonderful tour. Your love for your beautiful land, your story telling, and your vast knowledge, all backed by a wonderful music track, made for the most memorable trip. The picnic lunches that took advantage of the great weather were a special treat. Thank you! Anna

Thank you Matthew!!!!

Katherine Posted on 02/07/2015

I just returned from a four-day tour around the Isle of Skye and west highlands. It was not my first time to the UK or the first local tour experience, but it only proved that Rabbies is exceptional, which all came down to our tour guide: Matthew. The best part of Matthew is: he never pushed or tried too hard. Everything came naturally, but you could still feel his passion and devotion to his beloved land. The various landforms of Scottish Highlands are astonishingly amazing! Matthew was a wonderful story teller of everything about Scotland: history, politics, throne, clans, battles, music, geography, whiskey, castles, legends, animals. Stories poured out of him casually, as if told by an old friend. He kept talking and introducing, sort of enjoying himself, then everyone laughed and relaxed. Also, he consciously slowed down his talking speed so non-native tourists can also fully enjoy the journey. With his profound knowledge, and the thoughtful manner of a gentleman, you may not find any tour guide better than Matthew! Now I am suffering from a severe sense of lost. It seems I can still feel the wind, taste the salty air in Plockton, and hear the Scottish pipe music, which all echo in my memories. Scotland is definitely a place you must visit again! Start plan a journey! Better stay longer than four days to fully explore the area. Highly Recommended! Thank you, Rabbies. Thank you, Matthew!

What a great time!

Debbie Clunie Posted on 02/11/2014

What started on a wet, blustery morning turned into the most amazing 4 days EVER! Karen, our tour gulde, was a veritable encyclopaedia of information and I learned so much about this beautiful country. Coming from New Zealand, there were so many similarities in the countryside, but Scotland has its own way of presenting itself. I loved Plockton and the lovely Sybil who owned the B&B we stayed in. I will be back!

Autumn adventure

Ninsig Posted on 04/10/2014

I’ve recently spent 4 magnificent days on tour with Rabbie’s to Skye and the west highlands. The tour guide; Ross Hutton; was really fabulous! His stories were great, he was warm, friendly and funny. The weather wasn’t the best with fog and rain a lot of the time, but in some places that just made the sights more dramatic. I think day 3 of the tour is the one I will remember best. Ross advised the group to take a boat trip from Elgol to see Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin hills on Skye, and I don’t regret going at all! A great experience! This day we also stopped at the silver sands of Morar and Glenfinnan on our way from Skye to Fort William. Even the weather was quite nice that day! The next day it was rainy and foggy again... I believe we were very lucky to have Ross as our guide since he knew this route like the back of his hand. He listened to people’s requests and tried his best to make it possible to see the sights we asked for. This was my 3rd tour with Rabbie’s (went on 2 daytours this summer) and it will definitely not be my last. There are still so many places in Scotland I want to visit and I’ll be happy to have Rabbie’s take me there. So maybe next year a new Scottish adventure or two awaits me. Only time will tell. Big thank you to Ross for making this tour such a memorable one!

first time in Scotland and beautiful memories

maybe not the best weather, but the best memories!

Euen, the wee ferries and the giants

William Fishman Posted on 28/05/2014

We cannot thank our guide Euen for the wonderfully informative tour of Skye. Euen, you are no mere bus driver! You are an inspired story-teller, a preserver and interpreter of lore, and a brilliant commentator on almost everything. Thanks for giving of youself to us. May your life surpass your expectations.

Preguntas Frecuentes

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.

How do you cater for people with accessibility needs?

We aim to accommodate everyone. To read more information on how we do this, click here to go to our accessibility guide.

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.

What is ABTOT?

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.

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.
