En route to the island is some of Scotland's most dramatic scenery including the renowned Five Sisters of Kintail. We arrive at one of Scotland's most photographed castles; Eilean Donan Castle where time is provided for a visit. We cross the Skye Bridge providing opportunities for a picnic lunch en route or in the picturesque town of Portree. After Portree we skirt some cliff scenery, seeing the Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. Then we can choose from the fabulous mountain road over the Quiraing with its stunning views. Alternatively, we can travel around the very tip of Skye where Flora MacDonald is buried. Near Flora MacDonald's grave, you can (depending on the time of year) visit the Museum of Island Life housed in a crofting community of blackhouses. The scenery changes again and, if time, a trip will be made into the Fairy Glen which carries some interesting geological features from the last ice age.
