Isle of Skye Day Trip from Inverness
The towering sea cliffs and traditional fishing villages of the Isle of Skye lie off the west coast of the Scottish Highlands. With this tour, save both time and money by taking in the island’s highlights on a day trip from Inverness, including Kyleakin, Portree, and the Cuillin Hills with stops at Loch Ness and Eilean Donan Castle along the way.
What to Expect
Make your way to Inverness bus station and travel by air-conditioned minivan through the Scottish Highlands. Stop in Loch Ness, where you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the lake and hear the legend of the notorious Loch Ness Monster.

Continue to lakeside Invermoriston and then pass sights such as the Thomas Telford Bridge, Glenmoriston, and the Five Sisters mountain range on the drive to the west coast. Stop to admire the striking ruins of Eilean Donan Castle, before crossing the Skye Bridge to the Isle of Skye.

On the island, break for lunch (own expense) in Kyleakin and marvel at the rugged landscapes of the Cuillin Hills and then visit the island capital of Portree, where you will have free time to sightsee or browse the shops.

On the return journey, listen as your guide points out landmarks such as the Isle of Rum, Achnasheen, the Black Isle, and the isle of Eilean Ban. Arrive back in Inverness in the evening.

Great day trip

We had a great day! The itinerary of events was busy enough to keep everyone (including teens that dislike tours) engaged and easy enough that we were not completely worn out when we returned. Our guide, Chris, was funny and informative. The countryside was incredible...More
