Richiedi prenotazione

This is a fantastic  3 night / 4day tour from Glasgow to Skye and the Scottish Highlands.

 

Day 1

 

Pick up from outside the Parish Halls Building on 266 George Street in Glasgow at 7am.

 

We will then make our way for the Fort William Train Station for those taking the Jacobite Steam Train (only available on the summer timetable).

 

Once at Fort William, we will drop our guests taking the train ride off at the station and depart with our guests who are not taking the train ride along the same journey to Mallaig. This is what will happen during the winter months with all of our guests too unless the Jacobite is operating on the date of travel in the winter (they have some festive dates).  Once in Mallaig, we will meet up with everyone once again and have some free time to enjoy a spot of lunch and have a stroll around this picturesque seaside town (lunch not included) before taking the ferry to Skye. 

 

Once on Skye, we will make our way to your accommodation. 

 

Day end!

 

Day 2

 

Depart accommodation early (pick up times to be defined) and make our way to Dunvegan Castle (entrance fee not included and only available during the Summer timetable) and enjoy a visit to this impressive castle and gardens, the ancestral home to the Chiefs of the Clan MacLeod. 

 

We will then make our way for the Talisker Whisky Distillery where you will have time for a quick tasting. (The price of the tasting is not included in the tour). We will then have some lunch at the famous Oyster Shack nearby or you are free to pick up a sandwich or similar if seafood does not appeal to you (lunch not included). After lunch, we will continue onto Neist Point. On the return, we will stop at the Fairy Pools which does require an element of walking (around 20 minutes down and then again on the way back). If mobility is an issue, you are welcome to stay with the vehicle and have a wee walk to the first waterfall with beautiful views of Glenbrittle and the Black Cuillins.
