Discover Isle of Skye Scotland tours departing from Inverness. Embark on a captivating journey to The Misty Isle, unveiling the beauty of Eilean a’ Cheò, one of the most picturesque Hebridean Islands in the Highlands. Departing from the capital of the Highlands, we venture to the western coast, with stops at various destinations en route, including the renowned Eilean Donan Castle, one of Scotland’s most iconic fortresses.

Our journey begins in Inverness as we follow the shores of Loch Ness, hoping to catch a glimpse of Nessie, the legendary creature. A brief stop at Urquhart Castle offers a panoramic view of this historic ruin and the sprawling Loch Ness, the largest body of water in the UK by volume. Urquhart Castle, steeped in a tumultuous past, stands as a poignant symbol of the region’s history, marking a pivotal point in the oppression of the Highlands. Progressing through Invermorriston, we head towards Loch Claunie, continuing along Glen Shiel, the site of the historic Battle of Glen Shiel in June 1719.

Eilean Donan Castle (Caisteal Eilean Donnain)

Situated amidst the serene waters of Loch Duich, Eilean Donan Castle graces a small isle where three lochs converge: Alsh, Duich, and Long. Named in honor of Celtic saint Donan of Eigg, this historic landmark has endured since the mid-1200s, featuring a chapel built by the saint himself. Ravaged by the Royal Navy in 1719 following a standoff with Jacobites and Spanish forces, Lt Colonel John Macrae-Gilstrap painstakingly restored the castle in the early 20th century, offering visitors a glimpse into its storied past.

The Isle of Skye

Crossing the renowned Skye bridge, constructed in 1995, we reminisce about the era when ferry services connected the mainland to the Isle of Skye since the early 1600s. Our journey then winds through the enchanting Isle of Skye, pausing at various captivating locales. While some may visit popular tourist hotspots, we also offer the flexibility to explore lesser-known gems. Before embarking on the tour, we prioritize understanding your preferences to tailor the itinerary accordingly. Whether you prefer exploring the west coast or seeking specific interests, we ensure a bespoke experience. Here are several enticing destinations to consider while exploring Skye:

  • Elgol (Optional boat ride)
  • Carbost and Talisker Distillery (Optional rib boat ride)
  • A very special lunch stop near Talisker with views to die for whilst you eat your lunch (this is a special lesser known location)

As we return from Skye, we’ll travel along the lesser-known back road to Inverness, making a stop at the Ledgowan Lodge Hotel for a brief break. This charming establishment, once a Victorian hunting lodge, is now operated by a family.

Best Tour Ever!

This was the best tour I have ever taken! My mother and I were visiting the highlands area and we looked at a few different options. Ryan's tour was the absolute best we could have gotten. It was a privet tour in a very specious van, with snacks, water and drams of whisky. Ryan was even very accommodating to customizing the tour to include a distillery tour (we made it to Talisker) for us. The sights, stories and recommendations were absolutely fantastic!!! I highly recommend this tour especially if it is your first trip to the highlands area. Ryan was so knowable and he made the whole experience east and fun!! This is a must do if your in the area!!!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!!! Very professional and personal. Ryan took the time to get to know the 3 of us in our group and personalized the entire day as we went along. I was a single and the other two booked together and I felt like a part of the group from the first minute until the big hug at the end. Highly recommend and it is absolutely first rate with special extras, like our shot of whisky after climbing up to Old Man of Storr! He also took the time to get some fantastic photos of all of us in the group.

This is the place to go to ensure you see and do what you want in the Highlands, the Islands and around. Ryan was a wonderful chap with many great stories and insight, and can make sure you see and do everything you want, from hiking to the remote spots, to photo tours to a simple driving tour. Give a call and ask him about the possibilities: if anyone can do it, Sguur can. Ryan is fun, friendly and relaxed.
