Itinerary

This 3-day adventure in the Scottish Highlands begins when you meet your guide at a convenient location in Edinburgh and set off via luxurious Mercedes coach. With only a small group of fellow travelers for company, you’ll enjoy a personal discovery tour of the area’s unique landscapes and rich history.

During the first day, make your way up to Portree, the Isle of Skye’s largest town. En route, you’ll see the historic city of Stirling, Ben Nevis (Britain’s highest peak), and the hills and waterfalls of Glencoe. Enjoy time at your leisure to explore Portree in the evening before a night at a B&B or 3-star hotel—whatever your preference.

On the second day, embark on a fully guided tour of the Isle of Skye’s highlights. Depending on the weather, visit the 13th-century Dunvegan Castle, the rugged rock formations of Quiraing, or the sea cliffs at Neist Point, among other destinations.

After a second night in Portree, you’ll slowly make your way back to Edinburgh on the third day, with plenty of sightseeing opportunities as you go. Pause at Loch Ness to see if you can spot Nessie (its sea monster), and admire the wild Grampian Mountains. The tour ends in the early evening, upon your return to Edinburgh.

Hi. Check out Rabbies site. I believe there is a different trip to Skye from Glasgow but if you want to end in Glasgow you have to start in Glasgow.
