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.

Our tourist guide (Alan) was quite uninterested and didn't talk enough about anything. He barely said a word about Skye and stopped only in Portree.The only good thing about this tour is that you get to visit Elian Donan Castle.

An outstanding trip to the Ise of Skye

The Isle of Skye is a long drive from Inverness along narrow country roads, so sitting in the comfort of a bus driven by a safe, experienced driver is the best way to enjoy the stunning, rugged beauty of Skye. Our driver, Alan, was friendly...More

Nice day out even though it was a distance. Our driver Alan was very informative. A rainy day. In Portree we had a fantastic lunch at the Granery, Salmon, and it was a fun place. Did some shopping then back on the bus. Luckily we...More
