  • Enjoy an epic full-day sightseeing bus tour of the western Scottish Highlands and experience the majestic beauty with a professional tour guide at your side
  • Drive past Loch Ness, and visit the most photographed castle in Scotland – the grandiose Eilean Donan Castle
  • Have your camera at the ready for the mesmerising scenery throughout the Isle of Skye – it's breathtaking at every moment

Discover the splendour of the western Highlands on a coach tour of Skye & Eilean Donan, and fall in love with Scotland's spectacular scenery at every step along the way. Witness mother nature in all her rugged glory as you breeze across crumbling coastlines, airy glens, and vast sweeping valleys.

Rising early, like a Scottish grouse, you'll leave the city limits of Inverness in a comfy tour bus and make your way along the Great Glen Fault Line towards Loch Ness. Here you can do some drive-by monster-spotting, and admire the grandeur of Castle Urquhart in the distance.

Continue through the dramatic Highland scenery to the west coast and the breathtaking Eilean Donan Castle. The beauty of Skye and the Trotternish Peninsula will steal whatever's left of your breath, with majestic vistas and strange geological formations like the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the Quiraing.

You'll also have a chance to see the dramatic ruins of Castle Moil, the Skye Bridge, Eilean Ban and more, before heading home with a camera and head full of postcard-perfect memories.

It was a long day and we were really tired by the end. Our wonderful guide, Graeme, did a great job of taking us to Skye and back, stopping off at stunning vistas and planned stops along the way. He was very knowledgable and clearly passionate about the Highlands and Scotland as a whole, a passion he passed on to all of us, through his commentary, stories and the beautiful music he played for us through the day. We would never have seen so much in a day if we had gone on our own. This trip is a great way to cram loads in and it helps to work out places you’d want to spend more time in.
