Isle of Skye Day Trip from Inverness
From US$66.10
Lowest Price Guaranteed
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.

It’s like a dream

We were able to book this tour last minute and I am so grateful they were able to squeeze us in. Our tour guide Alan was very interactive and schooled us in the history of Scotland, the highlands and what life is like in Inverness...More
