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

    And We're Off... Off to Loch Ness...

    Your day starts 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 Eilean Donan Castle and Isle of Skye Tour from InvernessThomas Telford, the engineer behind the Caledonian Canal.

    Views of Eilean Donan Castle...

    Your journey then winds through pretty Glen Moriston and Glen Shiel and on past the Five Sisters, a stunning range of mountains that dominates the surrounding landscape. We'll then make a stop so that you can see Eilean Donan Castle. This is one of Scotland's most picturesque castles and is perched on its own island at the head of Loch Duich.
