Urquart Castle

Skye Tours from Inverness
Urquhart Castle commands great views of Loch Ness and can be found beside the village of Drumnadrochit on our tours from Inverness.

Eilean Donan Castle

Perhaps the most photographed castle in Scotland.  Eilean Donan Castle has featured in many movies and TV shows, including  ‘Highlander’ and ‘James Bond’ to name only a couple. One of my favourite folklore tales is of the origins of the Castle and travelling the glen telling you the story is something I always look forward to.

Isle of Skye Day Tour from Inverness

The “Misty Isle” holds many incredible visitor experiences and unique sites. Because of this, it’s actually impossible to do Skye justice with a mere description.

On our private tour, I shall endeavour to paint the same picture of Skye that my Father painted for me.

Tales of Warriors, Kings, Princes’s, Faeries and Giants, are literally around every corner on the Isle of Skye.

The Fairy Pools of Skye

Fairy Pools of Skye
The Fairy Pools of Skye are magical, crystal clear pools of water and a fantastic walk.

Portree Village ( The Port of the King)

Isle of Skye from Inverness

The Old Man of Storr

Isle of Skye Tour from Inverness
The Old Man of Storr is an incredible stop on our tours of the Isle of Skye from Inverness.

Wonder at  ‘The Old Man of Storr’ and the Trotternish Peninsula.

Whether the Faeries or landslips created the landscape here, we’ll leave that for you to decide.

Another great Skye legend is the actual making of the pinnacle known as the ‘Old Man of Storr’

We love to share a tale with you on our travels around the island or even as we walk up the Storr to gaze across the Minch.

Many believe ‘faeries’ are still with us! Just out of sight, behind a thin veil of mist.

Standing here, immersed in the landscape of the” Quiraing” or the mystery of the “Fairy Glen”, and it’s easy to see why.

It’s been my dream to visit Scotland, and Niall McOwan of Scottish Guided Tours made this the trip of my lifetime. He took wonderful care of us for five days; he created so many wonderful experiences for us - I’ll never forget it - we took his Outlander Tour - as a Scot, he is a wealth of Scots history, plus - he knows Outlander the show. We missed him terribly when it was over. Ten stars!

It is rare nowadays to say that something is perfection, but my fellow trip companions and I would agree that our tour with Scottish Guided Tours led by Niall and Andrew was just that. During our ten-day visit to Scotland, we journeyed on a three-day Outlander tour with Niall as our guide and a one-day tour of St. Andrew's led by Andrew...

Eddie, our most professional, congenial guide, was excellent. Our four days with him were seamless. He filled us with the zest of the Inverness/Isle of Skye area and people. My only regret was not having him with us for our entire trip. Thank you, Eddie and Scotland Guided Tours.

Our tour of the Highlands and Islands would not have been the same without Niall. He took such great care of us, planned a truly amazing tour and handled all of the logistical details. While discussing the itinerary, we started with the tour offered, and he helped us customize our five-day trip so we could experience exactly what we hoped. Additionally, we enjoyed our overnight accommodations based on Niall's excellent recommendations...
