3Day Highlands and Skye Tour - From Edinburgh
Telephone Booking Reference BAC WS 3DH

This is the route that is at the heart of all of our tours. If you’ve only got three days to play with, then this is the very best you can do!

2 nights and a full day on Skye, plus all the highlights there and back.

Day 1
Leaving Edinburgh we head straight for the Highlands. First stop is Stirling and Braveheart Country (William Wallace, King Robert the Bruce and Rob Roy) - you'll hear all the history and legends, with plenty of walks and time off the bus. Then we wind through some of Scotland's finest glens (stunning mountain valleys - if you didn't already know!), including Glen Garry, Glen Nevis and breathtaking Glencoe (hear about the massacre of Clan MacDonald). Then it's onto the Isle of Skye, our home for 2 nights.

Day 2
A full and active day round the Isle of Skye, with lots of walks and time to take in the magic. You'll see the Cuillin Mountains, the Old Man of Storr (an incredible Jurassic pillar) and hear some amazing legends, visit the fascinating Kilt Rock, and take in absolutely awe-inspiring panoramas in the Quirang. Perfect preparation for a few wee drams in the local pub, to reflect on a day of tales and legends.

Day 3
Our first stop is a visit to Eilean Donan Castle (where Highlander was filmed). Then lunch and an emotional visit to tragic Culloden battlefield (Bonnie Prince Charlie's last stand). A spot of monster hunting on Loch Ness (of course!). Our final stop (time allowing) is a gentle walk through the beautiful Hermitage Forest. Finally, home to Edinburgh, tired and happy honorary Scots!!
