Itinerary (English)

Day 1

  • Learn about Scotland’s most important battles as we pass Stirling Castle
  • Admire the mountainous splendour of the Five Sisters of Kintail
  • Take an epic photo of the gorgeous Eileen Donan Castle
  • Wander around the cute seaside village of Portree

You depart Edinburgh and travel west. This part of your journey is a history lover’s dream. You pass Stirling Castle, the Wallace Monument, and Doune Castle, before stopping in Callander for refreshments.

Next, we venture north through the splendid scenery surrounding Loch Luibnaig and up to the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor.

You continue through the spectacular mountain pass of Glencoe, scene of the great massacre of the Clan Macdonald in 1692. And after lunch we pass Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and head into the Great Glen. Travelling west you head past the Five Sisters of Kintail.

You then stop at the famous Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most photographed castles. Crossing over the bridge to Skye, you follow the dramatic coastline, towards the island’s capital, Portree. And after all this breath-taking beauty, you’re dropped off at your accommodation in the early evening with enough time to go out and explore the town.

Day 2

  • Explore the natural wonders of Skye
  • Enjoy spectacular sea views at Neist Point
  • Learn about the history of the Clan Macleod at Dunvagen Castle

Today is a flexible day on Skye. Your driver/guide will ensure you have the best day out no matter what the weather.

North of Portree is the Trotternish ridge with spectacular cliffs and rock formations, such as the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock and the stunning mountain pass of the Quiraing. Further west the scenery changes again with the emerald green valley of Glendale, the dramatic sea-cliffs of Neist Point (the most westerly point on the island, where you might get lucky and spot some whales or sharks!), and the 13th-century home of the Clan Macleod, Dunvegan Castle.

You return to Portree in the evening.

Day 3

  • Try and spot the Loch Ness Monster
  • Journey through the pine-clad region of Perthshire

You travel south through the Cuillin Hills and back over to the mainland for stunning views over Loch Duich and the five Sisters of Kintail.

You visit Loch Ness for lunch and the chance to spot "Nessie"! Heading south through the Grampian mountains along Loch Laggan, famous now as "Monarch of the Glen Country" before passing Dalwhinnie and onwards past Blair Castle.

We stop for refreshments in one of the Perthshire villages before heading past Perth, over the Forth Road Bridge, and back to Edinburgh.

Late but not forgotten...

At this time of year, I always review the most memorable travel experience I’ve had. First on my list of memorable experiences for 2016 is the “Isle of Skye Highlands 3 Day Tour.” This tour, because of our guide, Grant Scott, was a lot of fun and informative. Grant’s relaxed manner, enthusiastic personality, wonderful sense of humor created the perfect atmosphere while taking in the breathtaking beauty of the Isle of Skye, the Highlands, Munros, Lochs and so much more. He was attentive, filled the time with hilarious travel stories, folklore, to recounting the background of clans and battles, played beautiful Scottish music, and gave us an overview of the historical significance of every place we visited, relative to its effect on Scotland today. I will take more Rabbie’s tours because of him. There are also other reasons to choose a Rabbie’s tour. 1. I booked this tour through Viator, also an excellent company, however, contacted Rabbies for other inquiries. I found them easy to reach, friendly, and they answered all my travel questions. 2. Many times, you can choose to start a tour from either Edinburgh or Glasgow. 3. The Mercedes buses are a dream - comfortable and have charging stations for your technology. 4. Many options for hotel or B B accommodations. I booked my hotel through Viator, but see that Rabbies also has recommendations, which I will consider in the future. 5. Rabbies has an extensive list of tours. 6. You get a detailed itinerary in advance and know how to prepare for each day. 7. Most importantly, for me, is that the tour groups are small. I’m returning to Scotland this summer and will book more Rabbie’s tours. I am looking forward to the next adventure with them!

A fantastic experience. Loved the flexibility of the tour and Keiths willingness to maximise our time whilst we had great weather. I dont think he could have fitted much more in for us. Ill definitely be back. Thanks

Best Trip Ever

Abigail Aviles Posted on 30/09/2016

The beauty and majesty of Scotland has overwhelmed me. I was somewhat infatuated with the country because of fiction and tv shows, but upon arriving to Scotland, the country far exceeded my exceptions. It was official I was in love. This feeling would not have been as pronounced as it is today, if not for the workers at Rabbies. I did two tours with them, but the Isle of Skye tour was simply incredible. The landscape was enthralling, the views awe-inspiring. The history of each place we visited was a story worth writing, and the people there have convinced me that there is no place else like Scotland. Our driver was Catty and she knew so much about the area. You could see how passionate she was about the country she made sure to show us the most beautiful of places, and sought out to make us feel as comfortable as possible. Despite the weather being quite wet, Skye was no less magical. In conclusion, I can only end this post by saying thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU! Not only for making this the trip of a lifetime, but for making Scotland feel like a place better than home.

Fantastic tour and tour guide

Libby Posted on 23/09/2016

Wow! Our tour was 9/7 - 9/9 2016. We had the best tour Guide - Dave - who I would request be our guide on the next tour we take with rabbies! Dave showed us the best sights and scenes, shared facts and folklore and even though the weather could be a little uncooperative, made sure we all were have a great time. I highly recommend the Isle of Skye tour. You will not be disappointed! BRAVO to rabbies and Dave!!

Thanks for a great time!

nichole Posted on 18/09/2016

Being a world traveler, I cant say enough about how great my three day Isle of Skye tour with our guide Alex was. Except for the midges (which I dont think Alex could do anything about - ) it was all-around great. Also, I want to give a shout-out to the owners of my accommodation in Portree. Murdo and Angus at Woodpark Guest House were fantastic. I would highly recommend Rabbies as the go-to guide service in Scotland - youre the best!

3-Day Isle of Skye Tour: Perfect

Caroline Sucharski Posted on 17/08/2016

I came to Scotland with very little knowledge of the destination or expectations for the journey. After having the Rabbie’s Tour Company recommended to me, I decided to book the 3-day Isle of Skye tour. Grant was our guide for the experience, and allowed our full group of 16 people decide what we wanted to see and how long we wanted to experience certain destinations. Not only did Grant offer us numerous riveting facts and stories, but he calculated our way from Edinburgh to Skye with total efficiency in mind. Grant was kind, knowledgeable, and filled with magnet passion for Scotland and the places that tell it’s story. He treated every guest as a long-known friend, allowing the feelings of happiness and comfortability carry the group for the three short days. Even considering where the sun would be for our photo opportunities is a simple example of how much care Grant exuded into where he took us and when. I could write pages about our guide, but I will encompass my impression of him in one word: Ideal. After seeing Grant interact with several of his coworkers when visiting sites, you could see the same joy and passion in the entire Rabbie’s Tour team. I have walked away from this tour filled with the overwhelming sensations of peace and contentment, yet also exuberant passion for Scotland as well. The price of the tour was reasonable: mainly covering the hotel/bb accommodations, guide, and transportation. In three days we were able to experience numerous iconic destination that you are given when reading guidebooks on Scotland. Some include: Loch Ness, Quiraing, Neist Point, Kilt Rock, and Eilean Donan Castle. I highly recommend using this company for any UK tour experience. Cheers! Thank you for the memories!
