3-Day Isle of Skye, Inverness & Highlands Tour

Skye’s the limit on this tour!

Our 3-Day tour offers an action-packed overview of Scotland from start to finish whilst taking in some of Scotland’s most beautiful locations. On this adventure your driver-guide will tell you all about Scotland: it’s bloody history, Scottish culture, and so much more. You’ll journey through and experience the perfect setting for these stories, allowing you to be perfectly immersed in the moment.

This tour promises so much and delivers every time. From castles, to beautiful glens, from bronze age stone circles, to battlefields. This tour ticks more boxes than most. Of course, no tour of Scotland would be complete without a visit to the Isle of Skye, which is Scotland’s second largest island. A visit to the ‘Misty Isle’ is one of those magical experiences you should do at least once in your lifetime, as the geological architecture of the island is simply breath-taking and will stay with you forever.
