Tours to Isle of Skye

Tours that visit the Isle of Skye in Scotland. Many visitors really want to see the legendary and fabled Isle of Skye with its remarkable mountain scenery and beautiful coast. We have a selection of day excursions as well as longer tours that enable you to see Skye. There are NO day excursions from Edinburgh or Glasgow that drive as far as Skye - sadly the route is just too long to do in one day and then get back!

The best routes are the three day tours which spend two nights in Skye (usually) in Portree or Kyleakin and see all those remarkable sights! However, we do have a one day tour from Inverness running every day in the summer that visits Skye and Eilean Donan. 

Notes on the Three Day Skye Tours

The 3 Day Skye Tours are incredibly popular and completely sell out in the summer from June through to September. This is not a tour you can book late. We would expect tours to be fully sold at least three weeks before departure and sometimes longer. If you are a group larger than 2 you need to book as soon as you know you are planning to travel. At least 75% of our enquiries for Skye tours in the summer months are unfulfilled because there is simply no space. It is very much a case of snooze, you lose!

The list below provides a short cut through our long list to the tours that visit Skye as part of their itinerary.
