Explore the Isle of Skye on this full day tour from Portree.

Departing Portree, our journey begins north at the Old Man of Storr. The rock formation is quite unique; get a chance to take photos of the beautiful landscape before we continue onwards. We then head to Kilt Rock for our second stop of the day. Enjoy views of the beautiful Mealt Falls, a beautiful waterfall with fantastic views before we journey to the Quiraing; a rugged cliff face, for another photo opportunity.

Next, we travel to the Fairy Glen; make a wish at the magical Fairy Circle. From here we travel westwards to Dunvegan Castle. Stop here and enjoy a visit to the castle and gardens; home of the Clan MacLeod. Learn all about it's history, see the unique sculptures and paintings, and explore its magnificent gardens. Fancy something different? Instead of the castle, travel to Neist Point, one of the most famous lighthouses in Scotland located on the most westerly tip of Skye and first lit in 1909. Enjoy fantastic views of Skye's coastline and waters.

Our final stop of the day is the famous Fairy Pools. The pools are a natural water phenomenon in Glen Brittle, and their vivid blues and greens look ethereal. They're a popular place for swimmers and walkers alike, and wild swimmers who enjoy braving the frigid waters! Enjoy a walk to the pools before we return to Portree, where our full day of the Island ends.

An experience I will never forget
“Our driver/guide Rob was so warm, friendly, and knowledgeable about Skye. It was a true pleasure spending the day with him. He made all of us feel safe, in capable hands, and was always forthcoming with advice on how to see each site. Skye is truly a place that is not to be missed, and having Rob as our guide made the experience that much more wonderful. Many thanks to you, Rob! ”
