What to expect

Get ready for an adventure through some of Scotland's most iconic scenery and sights. Discover its most fanous attractions to the hidden attractions that aren't always found in the guidebooks with your driver-guide. Step onto the movie screen as you discover Eilean Donan Castle, feel like a true Scot as you tuck into fish and chips on the Isle of Skye and do a spot of Nessie hunting at Loch Ness.

Leave Inverness behind and start your adventure in the Scottish Highlands with spectacular views over the Moray Firth as you drive over the Kessock Bridge and make your way further north. The first stop of the day will be the lovely Kyle of Lochalsh where you can stretch your legs and enjoy a well-deserved tea break as you admire the views of the Skye Bridge. Then, you'll cross over to the island of Eilean Ban where you can snap photos of the island's wildlife.

Then you'll sit back and relax as you cross the Skye Bridge to discover this stunning island that offers stunning landscapes, powerful history and delicious food. You'll travel around this magical island and take in the stunning views of the Cuillin Hills and the Sligachan Bridge. You'll travel to Portree, the capital of Skye and one of the highlights of this tour! Stop off for lunch at the colorful harbor town, tuck into some delicious fish and chips before you hit the road again and bid farewell to Skye.

Eilean Donan is one of the most photographed castles in the world and has been the setting for many famous films and TV shows. As well as beauty, it boasts a fascinating history of raids and sieges. This is the perfect opportunity to take some snaps of this iconic castle.

Then you'll make one last stop on your way back at Loch Ness. You can do a spot of Nessie hunting as you drive along the shore of Loch Ness and stop at the little village of Invermoriston to take in the views and see a beautiful ruined bridge designed by Thomas Telford.
