See if the tales are true as you cruise down Loch Ness, attempting to spot the Loch Ness Monster, whilst cruising through the beautiful Scottish countryside. Explore the town at the southern end of the Loch, visit Fort Augustus, or the Clansmen Centre. On the stunning Isle of Skye we visit Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most recognised in Scotland. The last days of your trip will take you to the Black Isle, where you will visit a sleepy fishing village, and Inverness to explore the medieval streets.

This morning we take a leisurely and outstandingly scenic journey towards the Isle of Skye. We thread our way between lochs and mountains to reach Eilean Donan Castle, one of the most recognised castles in Scotland.

We cross the Skye Bridge to Kyleakin before retracing our steps to Inverness.
