Day 01
Scottish Highlands

Edinburgh - Glencoe - Eilean Donan Castle - Portree

We'll depart Edinburgh at 8:30am and travel west, passing Linlithgow Palace and Stirling with its imposing castle and views of the Wallace Monument. We'll pass Doune Castle, set of Monty Python’s Holy Grail before stopping in Callander for refreshments.

We'll cross into the Scottish Highlands heading north toward the glorious scenery surrounding Loch Lubnaig and then through Breadalbane and up to the wild desolation of Rannoch Moor, continuing through the spectacular mountain pass of Glencoe. After lunch, we'll drive past Britain's highest mountain - Ben Nevis - and into the Great Glen.

We'll travel west on the Road to the Isles heading through the splendor of the Five Sisters of Kintail, the mountains guarding the pass on the way to the Isle of Skye. The tour will stop to visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle - one of Scotland’s most photographed castles - set at the junction of 3 lochs and completely surrounded by water.

Next, we'll cross the bridge to the Isle of Skye following the dramatic coastline north toward the island’s capital of Portree. You will then be dropped off at your accommodation during the early evening and be free to go out to explore the town.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before scheduled departure.
Day 02

Isle of Skye

Day 2 is a very flexible day on Skye. There are many possibilities depending on the weather; your guide's knowledge will come to the fore in planning the most ideal day out for you.

North of Portree is the Trotternish ridge with spectacular cliffs and rock formations such as the Old Man of Storr, the impressive sea cliff Kilt Rock, and the stunning mountain pass of the Quiraing - amazing natural scenery best enjoyed on foot.

Further west the scenery changes again with the emerald green valley of Glendale, the dramatic sea-cliffs of Neist Point (the most westerly point on the island, where you might get lucky and spot some whales or sharks!), and the 13th-century home of the Clan Macleod, Dunvegan Castle. You return to Portree in the evening.

Day 03

Portree - Loch Ness - Edinburgh

We'll travel south through the Cuillin Hills and back over to the mainland for stunning views over Loch Duich and the 5 Sisters of Kintail. We'll continue onto Loch Ness for lunch and the possibility of spotting Nessie.

Heading south now through the Grampian mountains along Loch Laggan, famous now as Monarch of the Glen Country before passing Dalwhinnie, home to Scotland's highest whisky distillery. We'll pass Blair Castle and continue through Highland Perthshire as we head back to Edinburgh and over the Forth Road Bridge, arriving at 6 Waterloo Place at about 7:00pm.

We are a family of 4 coming to Edinburgh in the new year. I would like to do one of the 3 day Isle of Skye tours that covers the highlands and stays in Portree etc. The date we are looking at is the 2nd of Jan, 2018. It has to be that date as we have to be back in Edinburgh on the night of the 4th of Jan as we are flying out the next day to Europe.

It seems that there is a tour available for that date...but I just wanted to check. Also, what are the accommodation options?

We are thinking a B&B with 2 double bed rooms for the 2 nights?
