After lunch in the Fort William area, your tour will pause for photos at Britain’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, then stop to admire Glen Garry and the stunning Five Sisters of Kintail mountain range. Your first day ends in the charming village of Portree, on the Isle of Skye.

The day will end with the opportunity to admire the Old Man of Storr, before returning to Portree.

This was absolutely great! Loved everything about it. Our guide John from Isle of Skye taught me so much about the history of Scotland and all kinds of fun facts. Even taught us some Scottish! He knew all the right places and has a good sense of humor!

- Tom, our guide, made everyone feel very comfortable and welcomed. From his incredible knowledge of everywhere we went, to his awesome taste in music to keep everyone going. - B&B in the evening in Portree - I stayed at The Croft run by the lovely Rosie, had a continental breakfast in the mornings, and an amazing shower in the evenings. I wasn’t there long because of the later starts and earlier finishes though! - Very hard to find somewhere to sit in and eat in Portree, so had takeaway and sat at the harbour which was beautiful - Landscape is very dramatic, there is no way you can photograph it to capture the full grandeur of your surroundings. - I travelled as a solo female, along with three others on the bus. Everyone was very friendly and I had a great time! - For info: there are bathroom stops every 1 - 2 hours at least, often more frequently. You need to budget an extra £50ish for entrance fees.

Neil was a wonderful guide and our trip was terrific. He was humorous and very well versed in the history and legends of Scotland and Skye. It was truly an interesting and entertaining 3 days. Neil provided insightful info about this beautiful country without being didactic. Thank you Neil, thank you Timberbush.
