Full Tour Itinerary

Orkney

Leaving Inverness behind we’ll travel over the Kessock Bridge to the Black Isle and onwards to Achnasheen. Our journey continues through the striking beauty of Glen Carron to reach the highlight of our day together, the Isle of Skye, the largest of the Inner Hebrides. It’s thought the name could mean "Winged Isle” in Gaelic.

The island has some 400 miles of coastline, so the next part of our journey offers beautiful views over the silvery sea lochs to the islands of Scalpay and Raasay. We’ll make our way to Portree, the island’s main town. There’s free time to explore this attractive community - don’t forget to seek out the colourful houses that surround the harbour.

The last part of our journey will take us along the banks of mysterious Loch Ness. We’ll make our final photo-stop at Urquhart Castle whose ruins sit overlooking the deepest part of the loch. It’s a popular spot with "Nessie-spotters”. From here it’s a short drive back to Inverness and the end of our tour.
