  • Day 2 - Isle of Skye

    Wonderful scenery unfolds today, with high mountain tops and sweeping terrain as far as the eye can see. We make a stop in Fort William, one of the major resorts of the Highlands, set on the shore of Loch Linnhe and in the shadow of the mighty Ben Nevis. We then head north passing the impressive 13th century Eilean Donan Castle, the second most photographed castle in Scotland.

In the afternoon, we enjoy a scenic coastal tour of the Uists, passing numerous tiny lochs and sandy beaches, before checking into the Dark Island Hotel for an overnight stay. Located in the heart of the Hebrides on Benbecula Island, the hotel is ideally placed for our visit to the Isle of Harris.
