The Skye Experience 3 days Tour.
Day 1: Our route to Skye takes you past beautiful Stirling Castle, across the brooding expanse of Rannoch Moor and through Glen Coe. As our road nears the coast, it passes Eilean Donan Castle (optional). Here you have the chance to take photographs and explore the castle that featured in the film Highlander. Then it's time to cross the bridge to Skye. Overnight in Kyleakin. Day 2: You've got a full day to explore the island. This means that you can take things nice and easy but still see all the sights, such as the craggy Cuillin Mountains, the dramatic hills of the Quiraing and outstanding beautiful Trotternish Peninsula. In the evening you'll say goodbye to the Isle and head south to Loch Ness. Overnight in Drumnadrochit. Day 3: After a good nights' sleep near the shores of Loch Ness you'll have loads of time to explore. You can take a boat tour over to Urquhart Castle (optional), visit the Loch Ness 2000 Exhibition (optional), or just monster hunt from the shore. As we head home, you'll visit the battlefield of Culloden, the site of the defeat of the Jacobite forces. You'll also pass the stunning Cairngorm Mountains and explore the picturesque town of Pitlochry.
