3-Day Budget Backpacker Isle of Skye and the Highlands Tour from Edinburgh
From US$300.89
Overview
Discover the Isle of Skye—the affordable way—on this convenient 3-day Scottish Highlands coach tour that eliminates the need to rent a car. Besides a visit to what’s known as the “winged isle,” visit Loch Ness, Dunkeld, Glencoe, and a whisky distillery, and enjoy two nights in a dorm-style accommodation.
What to Expect
On the first day, make your way through Macbeth country to Dunkeld with its medieval cathedral. After sampling Highland whisky at a distillery and learning how Scotch is made, travel to Inverness. Then follow the length of Loch Ness—look out for the Loch Ness Monster along the way—to Fort Augustus, where you bed down in your dorm-style shared accommodations.
Day two brings you to the Isle of Skye, known as the “winged isle” or “Isle of Mist.” Admire windswept landscapes, rugged coastline, towering mountains, and ruined castles as your guide explains exactly their significance.
On day three, say farewell to Loch Ness. Pass Ben Nevis, Glencoe, and Stirling, scene of many of Scotland’s bloodiest battles. Learn tales of local legends such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce as you return to Edinburgh.
