Ben Nevis & Lochaber

Eilean Donan Castle
Over the Sea to Skye
Isle of Skye Tour
A full Isle of Skye day tour awaits on day two.
The “Misty Isle” holds so many incredible visitor experiences and unique sites that it is actually impossible to do Skye justice with a mere description.
Wonder at ‘The Old Man of Storr’ and the Trotternish Peninsula. We explore Kilt Rock and Lealt Waterfall.
Both are great “wee” walks and photo opportunities.
The Magical Fairy Glen
The Quiraing is a landscape shaped by Faeries
Breath in the sea air and gaze across the highlands and islands of Scotland and the Atlantic Ocean.
The Isle of Skye’s rugged coastline is the perfect place to hear some local history and folklore.
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.
Private Tours of Scotland
Private tours are designed around you and your travelling companions.
You may want a short or long walk to Neist point Lighthouse.
A hike up the ‘Storr’ or you may prefer more time in the fishing village of Portree!
The Old Man of Storr
Complete flexibility is only one of the many benefits of a private guide and transport.
Local knowledge of where to go if the weather turns, or how best to avoid the crowds in busier months is a huge advantage of the private Isle of Skye Tours from Edinburgh.
The Majesty of Loch Ness
We depart the Isle of Skye and travel along Glen Shiel to the world-famous Loch Ness.
The Loch Ness Monster has been bringing visitors to this part of Scotland for many years, and remember to keep your eyes peeled and cameras ready !!
Sightings of Nessie are more common than you might think!
Loch Ness Awaits
The Caledonian Canal
The beautiful village of Fort Augustus is our base for a couple of hours. Built along the Caledonian Canal, the village offers great views and lots of shops and lunch options.
An Engineering Wonder
Built-in the 1800s, the 60-mile canal is an engineering marvel that connects the North Sea with the Atlantic. Thomas Telford’s vision was realised by the blood, sweat and tears of once-proud highland warriors desperate for work after the clearances and by skilled Irish workers brought in to finish the huge task.
It is a testament to all concerned, and the canal is still in full working order. Watch boats of all sizes pass along the canal as you enjoy a coffee or refreshment.
Explore Loch Ness on Cruise
Loch Ness Boat Trip
You may wish to experience the vast waters of Loch Ness on a cruise. We can arrange this for you on the day, and it can definitely be a highlight of our visit to Loch Ness.
Leaving Loch Ness, we travel through the mountains and glens to the Cairngorm National Park. The largest of Scotlands two National parks and home the mighty Cairngorm Mountains, we enjoy a spectacular drive to Highland Perthshire.
Forth Rail Bridge
Our final stop is the Unesco protected and world-famous Scottish landmark of the Forth Rail Bridge on our return to Edinburgh. Opening in 1890, the bridge still carries all the rail traffic over the River Forth. One of 3 bridges covering the last three centuries and a great stop before the short drive back to our drop off location.
