The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins
Our Ultimate Isle of Skye Tour starts in Inverness, where you can choose to be picked up at the bus station or from selected hotels.

We drive over the iconic Kessock Bridge and through the rolling farmland of the Black Isle, where we often see birds of prey, including red kites and ospreys. As the scenery changes, and we enter into remote Highland wilderness, we usually spot majestic red deer. After one hour we have our first stop in the village of Achnasheen, home to a scenic Victorian railway station. Here you will have 10 minutes to stretch your legs, use the facilities and snap a photo of the rugged mountains from the railway bridge.

Loch Carron

Loch Carron
Stunning views over a Highland fjord

As we continue driving west the magnificent mountainous landscapes become increasingly impressive, and no more so than at our next photo stop; Loch Carron.  Situated on the west coast, we pause high above this fjord-like sea loch for fantastic views down to the ruins of Strome Castle.  As your guide fills you in on the story of its demise, this is also usually where we get our first glimpse of Skye!

Portree

Portree
Craft shops, coastline, coffee and colourful houses are just a few of Portree’s highlights.

Set within a pretty natural harbour, and surrounded by rocky cliffs and rolling hills, Portree is a beautiful place to explore. With its quirky shops, cute cafes and interesting sights you will certainly find plenty to occupy you during our 30 – 40 minute stop here. Your guide will give you some top tips on the coach, and will also point you in the direction of the harbour viewpoint; from here you can admire the pretty pastel-coloured houses that the town is famous for. Alternatively, you may wish to take a short hike up to the top of the Apothecary Tower, where you can enjoy stunning vistas of the area.

This will be your opportunity to pick up lunch to-go and your guide will recommend the best deli, bakery and fish and chip shop in town!

Old Man of Storr

Old Man of Storr
A loch-side spot to view the spiky rock pinnacle of the Old Man of Storr is next on our Skye bucket list.

As we venture further north we enter a supernatural and dramatic landscape which was created by volcanic activity millions of years ago. A short photo stop at a loch-side viewpoint gives you a chance to admire the unique rock formation of the Old Man of Storr. This 50 metre high pinnacle juts out from the awe-inspiring Trotternish Ridge and will be widely recognised from feature films including Stardust, The Wicker Man, Prometheus and The BFG.

We spend around 10 minutes here, and often stop at a second viewpoint too (weather permitting).

Kilt Rock

Kilt Rock
From a clifftop viewpoint we see the towering basalt columns of Kilt Rock and its incredible 60m waterfall.

Kilt Rock is an exposed sea cliff, which resembles the traditional Highland kilt, and which wows our guests each and every time. 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!

We spend around 15 minutes at Kilt Rock.

Quiraing

Quiraing
Take time to find a peaceful spot and enjoy the supernatural scenery of the Quiraing.

Our next stop is certainly one of the absolute highlights on Skye. The Quiraing is a series of landslides that have combined to create high cliffs, hidden plateaus, buttresses and rock pinnacles. When mist swirls around the volcanic rock, it can be a positively spine tingling experience and, on clear days, the views are phenomenal. We have 35 minutes here and would recommend taking a short hike to find a unique vantage point.

Whatever the weather, your experience here will be unforgettable.

Trotternish

Trotternish
Dramatic coastal and mountainous views abound on this stunning peninsula.

At around 2pm we will begin our journey back down Skye’s most northerly peninsula; the Trotternish. This will give you the opportunity to marvel at the majestic scenery from a completely different angle, and also means that those enjoying coastal views on the way up will swap to mountain views, and vice versa. National Geographic experts voted Skye the fourth best island in the world a few years ago, with their criteria being to find the most unique, picturesque and unspoiled places on earth. By this point in the journey we are confident that you will agree with their verdict!

Fairy Pools

Fairy Pools
A real highlight is the scenic walk to the stunning Fairy Pools.

The Fairy Pools are a series of beautiful rock pools and waterfalls which are famed for their crystal clear blue waters, and their stunning Cuillin mountain backdrop.  We will spend around 75 – 90 minutes here, to give you plenty of time to enjoy this wonderful sight.

The scenic walk to the first pool takes around 20 minutes (distance is 0.7 miles) and the most impressive waterfall is 5 minutes further on (0.9 miles total).  Most guests spend their time around this area, admiring the crystal clear waters of the pools and their gushing waterfalls. Photo opportunities abound!

For those keen to get off-the-beaten-track and take some stunning photos you can venture on up the path to the other pools further upstream – by walking another 15 – 20 minutes (0.6 miles) you will pretty much have the path to yourself.

Please be aware that the walk to the Fairy Pools and back is a total of around 1.5 miles and will take around 40 minutes, so you do require a moderate level of fitness for this tour. Also, as you need to cross stepping stones over a couple of streams you need to be stable on your feet, and ensure that you wear sensible hiking boots/shoes. This is not a tourist attraction, it’s nature at its most beautiful, so don’t expect pavements or bridges (and beware that wet feet can make for an uncomfortable journey home)! Also, please be aware that there are currently no public toilets here (they are due to be completed in September 2020).

Please note that, very occasionally, it may not be possible to visit the Fairy Pools due to bad weather and/or excessively high water levels in the streams we require to cross. If this happens we will visit alternative pools instead.

Eilean Donan Castle

Eilean Donan Castle
We stop at a wonderful viewpoint to swoon over this truly iconic castle.

After crossing back over the Skye Bridge we embark on an alternative route to Inverness, with our next stop being the instantly recognisable Eilean Donan Castle. This is one of the most photographed castles in the world, and has appeared in many films including Highlander, James Bond – The World is Not Enough and the Bollywood classic Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. We will spend around 15 minutes here at a classic viewpoint across the water from the castle.

The Journey Home

The Journey Home
Sit back, relax and just enjoy the unspoilt Highland scenery.

After so many world-class sights ticked off your list today, you will have an hour or so to sit back, relax and enjoy yet more beautiful scenery before our final stop. We will follow the shores of Loch Duich before travelling up into the hills, where we will see legendary mountains; The 5 Sisters of Kintail. Your guide will keep you amused with tales of legend and lore as we pass various sights of Jacobite military interest, including a spot where the Spanish battled the Dutch way back in 1719. As we tour alongside the shores of Loch Cluanie keep an eye out for the historic bridge and buildings which lie submerged in the loch, and which you can catch glimpses of when the water level is very low.

Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle

Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle
See the legendary castle and world-famous loch from above.

Towards the end of our epic journey we travel along the northern shores of the legendary Loch Ness. Here, Nessie enthusiasts can keep an eye out for the monster, while the rest of us soak up the great views across the loch. At Urquhart Castle, we have our last stop of the day – this historic landmark is best viewed from above for wonderful views of the medieval ruins, which sit upon a stubby peninsula jutting out into the inky waters of the mysterious loch.

We are confident that you will return to Inverness with memories to last a lifetime, and having fallen in love with the place we feel so lucky to call home.

Tour FAQs

Why should we choose WOW to take us to Skye?+

We know that there are a number of companies in Inverness offering similar tour itineraries to ourselves, and we appreciate that it can be difficult to decide which company to use.  We wanted to summarise the main benefits of coming on our tour, so that you can make sure you are making the best choice for your group.  So..here goes…

  • First and foremost, we have the most comprehensive tour itinerary available from Inverness; our tour is currently the only one which includes all of the sights in Northern Skye (Portree, Kilt Rock, Trotternish Peninsula, Old Man of Storr and Cuillin Mountains) as well as giving you the opportunity to hike to the Fairy Pools, and see Eilean Donan Castle and Loch Ness/Urquhart Castle en-route.  It truly is the ultimate tour of Skye!
  • We are the only company to offer a seat reservation system for our front row seats so, if taking uninterrupted photos is important to you, this will be a great benefit.  
  • We are the only company offering free hotel pick-up and drop-off at 10 Inverness hotels, ensuring that your day is as relaxed and enjoyable as possible
  • We are also the only company offering a transfer service from Drumnadrochit, Aviemore, Carrbridge and Tomatin; we take care of all of the logistics so you can take care of enjoying your day
  • We have the newest and smartest tour vehicle (ok, this is partly subjective, but we are pretty confident!)
  • We are the only local company offering coach tours to Skye from Inverness (we operate from Tomatin, 20 miles south of Inverness, and the company owner is an Invernessian born and bred!).  We think that this is important, as it means that the money you pay for your ticket goes back into the local economy.
  • Skye has a fragile economy which is very dependent on tourism, and we want to ensure that the local community see the benefit of our tours.  Consequently, we work with fantastic local suppliers on all of our tours.
  • We have been awarded 5 Star Tour status by our national tourism organisation, Visit Scotland, for the last five years, which means that they have rated our tours as “exceptional”
  • We have over 1700 5 star reviews on TripAdvisor (over 500 of these are specifically for our Skye tours – that’s a lot of very happy customers!)
  • We care about the Highlands!  Every time we go to Skye we pay to plant trees through Trees for Life, in order to offset the carbon produced by our coach.  We also use fully biodegradable packaging for our meals, to reduce waste going to landfill.  You can read more about all that good stuff here
  • We have gone above and beyond to ensure that our tours are safe as possible, taking measures such as: reducing capacity by over 50%; implementing social distancing between groups of at least one metre; implementing staggered boarding procedures; and regularly sanitising high traffic areas.  You can read full details here.

We very much hope that you will choose to come with us to Skye, and are looking forward to meeting you, and showing you the best the island has to offer, very soon!

What times does the Skye tour start and finish?+

It is possible that we may return a bit later than this, although we always try to keep to our schedule as much as possible.

We also offer pick-ups from and drop off at various Inverness hotels.  These will be available to select when booking, with a specific pick-up time provided in your email confirmation.

March and October

This tour departs earlier and returns later in March and October, due to the limited daylight at these times of year. Exact timings will be available to view when booking.

Where is the pick-up point in Inverness?+

Our main departure point is at Stance 7 at Inverness Bus Station, Margaret Street, Inverness, IV1 1LT. Look out for the kilted WOW guide and WOW-branded coach and you won’t miss us!

When you book you will be given the option to book a pick up from your hotel as an alternative to the bus station.  Further details on specific hotels is provided in the next FAQ, and precise timing information will be provided in your booking confirmation email.

 

Can you pick me up from my hotel?+

Yes, we offer pick up from the following Inverness hotels:

  • MacDonald Drumossie Hotel
  • Premier Inn (Inverness Centre) Millburn Road
  • Jury’s Inn
  • Premier Inn Inverness East
  • Craigmonie Hotel
  • Kingsmills Hotel

Can I join the tour from anywhere else?+

Yes, if you are based in Aviemore, Carrbridge or Tomatin we offer a transfer service which will meet the tour in the morning, then take you back in the evening.  This service costs £15pp from Aviemore or Carrbridge and is free from Tomatin.  Please just select this when you are booking the tour.

We also offer a transfer service from Drumnadrochit. A transfer vehicle will pick you up in the morning and you will be dropped off again in the evening. This service costs £15pp. Please just select this when you are booking the tour.

Can I reserve seats on the tour?+

2020

In 2020 we have a booking system for the three front row seats, which give you great views out of the front windows and the opportunity to disembark first at every stop.  All other seats will be allocated by your tour guide on arrival, in line with social distancing guidelines i.e. guests who book together will be seated together, at least one metre from every other group.  Single travellers will be guaranteed two seats to themselves.   All seats have plenty of legroom and great views!

Our tour capacity has been reduced by over 50% in order to comply with social distancing guidelines so there will be a maximum of around 12 – 15 guests on the tour (the exact number is dependent on the configuration of groups)

2021

In 2021 we hope to be able to revert to our previous reservation system, which will enable booking of a variety of seats, as follows;

  • 3 front row seats – these give you unparalleled views out of the front windows, and the opportunity to disembark first at every stop.  Our most popular seats.
  • 4 second row seats – many guests prefer to sit near the front of the coach, or be reassured that you will be seated together if they are a couple/group, both of which you get with this option.  These seats also have a little more legroom than these front row seats.  These are available on some tours only.
  • 2 extra legroom seats – these are situated near the back of the coach and have approximately 50% more legroom than regular seats.  They are particularly suited to those who are tall, or like to stretch out.
  • 4 back row seats – these are ideal for groups who wish to sit together.  Unlike on most other coaches we have removed the fifth/middle seat so the seats are spaced further apart, giving you more elbow room.

The price of the upgrades vary depending on which tour you are on, with prices between £2.50 and £22.50 per person.  If they are available, upgrades will be given as an option when booking.Please note that it does not make any difference which side of the coach you sit on, so we don’t take requests for specific sides.The rest of our seating works on a first-come-first-served basis, as we feel that this is the fairest system of allocating seats. It is not possible to reserve window seats, or seats together if you are travelling as part of a group but, if you do wish to choose your seat, we would recommend arriving early at the bus stop (i.e. a few minutes before check-in closes). If you are unhappy with your seat please let your tour guide know and he will do his best to accommodate your requests, although obviously many guests would prefer a window seat so it is not possible for everyone to have these!Note that any fees paid for seat upgrades are non-refundable if you cancel your tour.

What sort of vehicle do you use?+

wow mini coaches on the roadHere at WOW Scotland we only have two coaches, both of which were built to our precise specifications, to ensure the highest levels of passenger comfort. The vehicles have 30-seats (maximum capacity of 15 in 2020, in order to comply with social distancing guidelines) and are very well-appointed with panoramic windows, comfortable reclining seats, USB ports under every seat and on-board WiFi. You can rest assured that you will be able to relax and enjoy the majestic scenery in complete comfort. You can read more about our coaches here.

How often are bathroom/toilet stops?+

There are five stops where toilets/bathrooms can be accessed.  Below we have listed the times when bathrooms are available (timings are for our 0815 departures and can vary slightly but this gives you a very good indication of time between comfort breaks); 9.10am (Achnasheen), 11.30-12pm (Portree), 2.50pm (Portree), 6.15pm (Eilean Donan Castle) and 8pm (if required, at Drumnadrochit).  Outside of these times it may be possible to make unscheduled bathroom stops – please just ask our driver or guide to see what they can do for you, as the last thing we ever want is for our passengers is to be uncomfortable.  Please note that there are bathroom facilities available in Inverness bus station which you can use prior to tour departure (at a cost of 30p per person).

By September 2020 there should also be toilets open at the Fairy Pools, where we spend around 90 minutes from 3.30pm.

Will we be stopping for coffee/snacks enroute?+

In 2020 we will have one, or possibly two, stops where you can pick up a coffee or a bottle of water, but doing so means that you will have less time to spend exploring the sights. Consequently, we would recommend that you bring some light snacks and drinks on the coach, to be eaten at the various stops in order to keep your energy up for the adventure!

If you do wish to purchase snacks or drinks on the tour the main opportunity to do this will be in Portree (you have approximately 45 minutes here and there are a number of cafes, bakeries and shops), and sometimes in Broadford. Note that these timings are subject to change, as we will sometimes reverse the itinerary if required, depending on the weather.

Where will we get lunch & dinner?+

In order to minimise the exchange of money, and close contact between our staff and guests, we will not be offering a lunch ordering service in 2020.  Instead, you will have time in Portree to pick up lunch to go and your guide will recommend a few great places to pick this up.

For dinner we would recommend booking a table in Inverness and we will send you a list of a few of our favourites a few days prior to the tour.

How much time will we spend on the coach on the Skye tour?+

This is a 12 hour tour which covers all of the most popular sights, both en-route to and on the Isle of Skye. Although there is approximately 7 1/2 hours of driving involved the scenery along the way is stunning, and of course the commentary will keep you informed and entertained, so the time onboard will fly by! The tour also incorporates around 4 1/2 hours of stops so there is plenty of time to get out and explore!

Can children come on this tour?+

We welcome children over the age of six on our tour.

It should be noted that approximately 60-70% of the day is spent on the coach, so it may be an idea to bring some toys, games and snacks with you.Unfortunately, due to the duration of the tour and time on the coach, we do not feel that this tour is appropriate for children under the age of six, so the tour is not open to this age group. This is for the comfort of other passengers and also to ensure that the driver guide can focus on doing their jobs without any distractions.UK law states that each passenger must have their own seat and use their seatbelt at all times. Consequently, it is not possible to take a child on your lap. From experience we know that, very occasionally, parents try to bring children on without purchasing a seat. However, we would like to make it clear that this is not allowed and there will be no refund if you are refused entry to the tour for taking children under 6 or those whom you haven’t booked.

Can wheelchair/walking frame users come on the Skye tour?+

Unfortunately not all of the stops offer wheelchair access, as a lot of the terrain on Skye is very rugged. Also, the coach is not equipped for passengers to remain in their wheelchairs.That being said, if you are able to get out of your wheelchair at the coach steps and walk onto the coach, there is no reason why you could not enjoy the tour from the comfort of the coach and we will make every effort to accommodate those with mobility problems.

What should I wear on the Skye tour?+

At stops such as The Quiraing and Sligachan there are opportunities to go on short walks. As the ground is often wet, muddy and slippery we would ask that you wear hiking boots or, as an absolute minimum, sensible shoes/trainers/sneakers which have good grip and which are suited to this type of terrain. Also, please bring a waterproof jacket (waterproof trousers can also come in useful if you have them!).  Even if the sun is shining brightly when you leave Inverness, they do say that you only really experience Scotland when you see four seasons in one day, so please be prepared!

What if the weather is bad?+

If it is or has been very rainy at the Fairy Pools then we will be unable to visit.  The reason for this is that we require to cross two streams, using stepping stones, to get to the pools and, after heavy rain, these stepping stones will be submerged and unusable. There is no other way to access the pools.   If it is at all risky (i.e. if the pools are accessible but heavy rain is forecast and we envisage that we may not be able to get back) then we will not visit the pools. (If it is that rainy, you definitely do not want to be there as it is absolutely miserable, and there is no shelter whatsoever).

Please remember that this site is a natural phenomenon, not a tourist attraction, and as such is subject to the weather.

We will of course do our utmost to visit the pools.  However, if we are unable to visit we will do something else instead and you will still get a full day tour.

All other sites are accessible, regardless of the weather.

Can I swim in the pools?+

First and foremost; we would not encourage you to swim in the pools.  However, if you are considering it please bear the following in mind;

We cannot stress enough how cold the water is – it might look enticing but, even in the height of summer, it is estimated to be around 4-6oC (42oF) which is colder than the (notoriously chilly) North Sea!!

Open water swimming is inherently dangerous and should only be attempted by very confident swimmers

There is nowhere to change, which is fine if you put your swimming stuff on under your clothes, but perhaps not as fine when you come out desperate to get some warm clothes on,  but everyone is looking and pointing at the crazy person who has just been swimming!

If you do decide that you still wish to swim in the pools, you should bring a towel and swimming costume.

Swimming in the pools is done entirely at your own risk.

How much walking is involved?+

The stop where we spend most time on this tour is at the Fairy Pools.  The walk from the coach park to the pools is uphill on a rough path and requires you to cross a couple of streams (there are stepping stones but these are usually wet, so you need to be sure-footed).  To get to the first pool will take a fit person around 15 – 20 minutes and the distance is 0.7 miles.  To then walk on to the last pools is a further 0.3 miles and will take around 10 minutes (this is entirely optional as you can enjoy the beauty of the pools from the first vantage point).  In total a fit person will walk the 1.5 miles there and back in around 40 minutes, and will have around 45 minutes to enjoy at the pools themselves.

There will be opportunities to do short walks at the Quiraing and in Portree but these will be shorter than at the Fairy Pools and, if you would rather stay near the coach, it is absolutely fine to do this.  There is no requirement to do any walks other than at the Fairy Pools (even at the pools, you can stay on the coach if you would prefer, or your guide may be able to take you to an alternative natural sight nearby, but please note that there is nothing else to do at this stop i.e. no shops or attractions).

What should I wear on this tour?+

On this tour you spend approximately 1 1/2 hours at the Fairy Pools;  the location is windy and exposed, with absolutely no shelter from the elements, so it is imperative that you are appropriately dressed for this.  We really cannot stress this enough – if you are soaking wet you will struggle to enjoy the rest of the day.  As we say in Scotland, “there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”!

We would strongly recommend wearing hiking boots with ankle support (as a minimum you will need sturdy comfortable trainers/sneakers) as the path is often muddy and slippery, and you require to cross a couple of streams on the way to the pools.  We would also strongly recommend bringing a waterproof jacket, and ideally waterproof trousers/pants too (note that umbrellas are useless on Skye – they just blow inside out and are rendered useless very quickly).  In addition to these essentials we would suggest wearing layers, including a thick sweater/fleece option, and bringing a hat and gloves and warm jacket in your bag.

Even if the sun is shining brightly when you leave Inverness, they do say that you only really experience Scotland when you see four seasons in one day, so please be prepared!

Can we visit Talisker?+

In a word, no. We do not visit Talisker Distillery on any of our tours, as it often gets exceptionally busy there and, as such, we are unable to guarantee the quality of the experience offered.  However, if you are a whisky fan, we would strongly recommend our Whisky Tour, which visits four excellent distilleries and a cooperage, giving you outstanding tours/tastings at each. (Note that our Whisky Tour is not available in 2020 but we hope to be offering it again in 2021).

Can we book a private tour instead?+

Yes – we’d be delighted to offer you a private tour! Please contact us for details.

Can I be dropped off in Skye after the tour?+

Yes – this is not a problem and is a great way of doing a trip around Scotland. You are welcome to bring your luggage with you, just let us know when booking. We typically drop people off in Broadford or Kyleakin, but if you’ve somewhere else you’d like to be dropped please contact us and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request.
