What to Expect
Travel from Inverness to Skye on a day tour exploring the countryside and seeing the main sights. Your day starts with a bit of monster spotting as you drive along the shore of Loch Ness. Stop at the little village of Invermoriston, where you can take in the views and see a delightful ruined bridge.
Your journey winds through Glen Moriston and Glen Shiel and on past the 5 Sisters, a stunning range of mountains that dominates the surrounding landscape. Continue to Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most picturesque castles, perched on its own island at the head of Loch Duich.
Next cross over the bridge to Skye and head for Broadford. Your tour of this magical island takes in the stunningly beautiful road through Glen Suardal. You’ll also see the iconic Red Cuillin Hills and, as you reach the little village of Torrin, you’ll be able to enjoy views of Bla Bhein (Blanven).
The road then drops to hug the banks of Loch Slapin. Continue with a steep climb over Strathaird to reach Elgol, where you'll have an extended stop.
Your journey then heads back to the mainland past the little island of Eilean Ban. Stop off at Achnasheen and then drive home via the scenic Black Isle.
