Old Man of Storr

Old Man of Storr
Just 10 minutes into tour we hit an other-worldly landscape fashioned by volcanic activity millions of years ago fashing by volcanic activity millions of years ago.

Our first stop is a photo stop that gives you a chance to admire the unique rock formations including the Old Man of Storr, a 50 metre high rock pinnacle which juts out from the awe-inspiring Trotternish Ridge.

The Quiraing

The Quiraing
Our next stop is certainly one of the highlights on Skye and our absolute favourite stop!

You may recognise it from fills such as Stardust and Prometheus and many others too! The Quiraing is a series of landslips that have combined to form an awe-inspiring scenery. When mist swirls around the volcanic rock it creates an almost surreal experience and on clear days the views are amazing. A 25 minute stop here ensures you have plenty of time to explore for yourself. If you are feeling fit you may wish to join your guide on a short hike, although the views are great even if you don’t.

Kilt Rock

Kilt Rock
Our next stop is Kilt Rock; an exposed sea cliff which resembles the traditional Highland kilt.

Kilt rock wows our guests each and every time, and is often our most popular stop of the day. It also boasts a waterfall that tumbles 60 metres (180 feet) into the Sound of Raasay below – a truly enthralling sight, and one made even more special when the wind blows the waterfall back up the cliff!

Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan Castle
A highlight of our tour is a photo stop at Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most recognisable castles in the world!

Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most iconic castles in Scotland and one nearly all visitors to Scotland have high up on their ‘bucket list’. On our tour we will have a 20 minute stop to view the castle from ‘the’ classic viewpoint ensuring that you will be able to get some great shots. Unfortunately there isn’t an opportunity to go inside of this castle on our tour, although if castles are your thing be sure to sign up to Invergordon shore excursion where we visit the medieval Cawdor Castle.

Cuillin Mountains

Cuillin Mountains
Our journey around Skye culminates in one of the best view points in the whole country, that of the Cuillin Mountains

Here there is an opportunity to go on an off-the-beaten-track hike with the guide to one of our favourite spots on the island, or perhaps you’d rather relax with a locally crafted whisky or ale in Seamus’s Bar which has views to die for! We will spend around 30 minutes here.
