    Tour Description:

    Eilean Donan Castle and Isle of Skye Tour from InvernessThis one-day adventure takes you thorough some of Scotland's most iconic scenery. We will first travel via the beautiful Black Isle to reach the Isle of Skye. You'll then experience the very best that this magical place has to offer. Returning past Eilean Donan Castle and Loch Ness

    There are fabulous views over the Moray Firth to take in as we leave Inverness over the Kessock Bridge. You'll enjoy a comfort break in the lovely Strathcarron situated at the head of Loch Carron, a sea loch, and between River Carron and River Taodail. Next you'll cross onto the little island of Eilean Ban, where Gavin Maxwell, the author of the "Ring of Bright Water", lived for a while before you cross over the bridge to Skye.

    Eilean Donan Castle and Isle of Skye Tour from InvernessYour tour of this magical island takes in the stunningly beautiful sight of the Cuillin Hills and the Sligachan Bridge on the road to Portree, the capital of Skye. This will be your lunch-time stop, where you can enjoy fish and chips in the colourful harbour - just watch out for the seagulls!

    Eilean Donan Castle and Isle of Skye Tour from InvernessEilean Donan Castle is one of Scotland's most picturesque castles and is perched on its own island at the head of Loch Duich. You will have enough time here to tour the castle inside and out.

    Your day ends with a bit of monster spotting as you drive along the shore of Loch Ness. You'll then stop close to the loch at the little village of Invermoriston, where you can take in the views and see a delightful ruined bridge which was designed by Thomas Telford, the same engineer who created the Caledonian Canal.

    "I had a fantastic time through Scotland Tours, I would recommend the company to others. Everything was great, the highlight had to be the boat ride on loch Ness. The guide & service was well organised"
