On your way to the ‘Misty’ Isle you’ll see Stirling Castle, Eilean Donan Castle and Ben Nevis.  When you arrive take a walk inthe stunning Quairaing Mountain pass. Or visit the Clan MacLeod’s 13th century home Dunvegal Castle.

Day 1: Edinburgh - West Coast - Skye.  Linlithgow Palace, Sitrling Castle, Doune Castle - a fascinating introduction to the Highlands. You’ll pass loch Luibnaig, Loch Earn, Crianlarich and Tyndrum. Continue through to Glencoe, scene of the great massacre of the Clan Macdonald, past Fort William and take in the views over Ben Nevis at Spean Bridge. The road to the isles takes you through the Five Sisters of Kintail, the mountains guarding the pass on the way to the Isle of Skye. Stop and visit the famous Eilean Donan Castle used in the film ‘highlander’.

Day 2: Skye - The choices are yours today - perhaps travel north to the stunning Quiraing mountain pass and enjoy a walk through some of Skye’s extraordinary geological scenery. Kilt Rock, composed of basalt columns (reminiscent of the pleats in a kilts) with its waterfall cascading over the cliffs into the sea below. Go for a walk out to the lighthouse at Neist Point or go over to Dunvegan Castle, ancestral seat of the Clan McLeod. Talisker Distillery is also here!

Day 3: Skye - Edinburgh. Drive through the Cuillin Hills before returning to the mainland. At the top of the Mam Ratagan Mountain pass take in the stunning views over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail. Look out for Nessie over lunch and if you are keen to get a closer look, you can take a boat trip out into the mystical waters.
