Full Day Private Tour to Western Highlands and Jacobite Steam Train Ride
Full Day Private Tour to Western Highlands and Jacobite Steam Train Ride
Together with the driver-guide you embark on a full day trip to the western Scottish Highlands. You drive along the famous Loch Ness and along Caledonian Canal before you arrive in Fort William. Here you board the famous Jacobite Steam train. This 42-mile trip covers the most impressive must-sees, starting near the iconic mount Ben Nevis, passing Loch Morar, and River Morar, arriving next to the deepest seawater loch in Europe, Loch Nevis. Enjoy the dramatic views and see the most famous bridge in Scotland, Glenfinnan Viaduct, featured in the Harry Potter movies as well as beautiful villages of Lochailort, Arisaig, Morar, and Mallaig along the route. Upon arrival at the turning point you have a 1-hour wildlife cruise safari. Travel out to Green Island on the Knoydart Peninsula and take a chance to witness wild seals relaxing on the rocks as well as a variety of birds, porpoises, dolphins, whales, and basking sharks frequently visiting the coastal waters. After the cruise you meet your driver-guide for a drive back to Inverness.
Full Day Group Tour Isle of Skye
Full Day Group Tour Isle of Skye
Enjoy the beauty of the untouched nature in its glory, embarking on a full day tour to the famous Isle of Skye. Early in the morning, you leave the city of Inverness with your guide-driver, passing the legendary Loch Ness, observing dramatic Highland scenery and paying a visit to the most photographed castle in Scotland, Eilean Donan Castle. The next destination on your agenda is the picturesque Kyle of Lochalsh, a village on the mainland which serves as the gateway to the scenic Isle of Skye, a place of inspiration for many movie makers, poets, and travelers. Upon arrival on the Isle, you travel around the island’s east coast through the gorgeous Cuillin Mountains, experiencing truly breathtaking panoramas. Then you arrive at the lovely town of Portree, overlooking a sheltered bay and serving as the capital city of the island. While in Portree, you have some free time to explore the town and grab a snack. Afterward, you proceed to the northernmost peninsula of the Isle of Skye, Trotternish to observe some unusual natural formations like the Old Man of Storr, Kilt Rock, and the Quiraing, and take some memorable photos of this extraterrestrial place. Following the tour, you are transferred back to Inverness. The route you take back differs from the one in the morning so you have even more opportunities to admire the Highland scenery. *Note: group tour meeting point is at the Inverness bus station.
