2-Day Isle of Skye with Fairy Pools Tour
A 2-day tour for small groups departing from the capital of the Highlands: Inverness. Then heading to the West Coast and to the Isle of Skye: Eilean Donan Castle, Fairy Pools, Neist Point, Old Man of Storr, and Quiraing, just to name a few.
Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle
Loch Ness is the largest Loch by volume in the British Isles, and one of the deepest ones too. Worldwide famous for its elusive monster, it hosts one of the most iconic castles of Scotland: Urquhart Castle.
Glen Shiel and the Five Sisters of Kintal
Soaring mountains, sparkling rivers and wild moorlands on the way to the Isle of Skye.
The Cuillin Mountains on the Isle of Skye
The Cuillin is a range of rocky mountains. The main Cuillin ridge is also known as the Black Cuillin to distinguish it from the Red Cuillin, which lie to the east of Glen Sligachan.
The Fairy Pools
The pools are located in one of the most dramatic landscapes on Skye. The fairies regularly bathe here, in the crystal clear green pools of the River Brittle. Weather permitting, you can swim in the pools of the river, one of the UK’s best wild swimming spots. Have fun diving under natural arches and waterfalls, but please do not spy on the fairies, as they can easily take offense!
We in no way endorse swimming in the pools and it is done entirely at your own risk.
This is the best place on the island to spot whales, dolphins and sharks. Here we transport you to the edge of the world, with its beautiful scenery, awesome skies and endless ocean.
Wander between countless conical mounds, known in the Highlands as fairy knowes; put your ears to the grass and listen for the fairies at work inside.
Bend down to search for elves in the glen’s miniature forests, take the twisted path to the top of the fairy castle or walk the faun’s maze and have a wish granted!
We make it to Rha waterfalls, called by some as the hidden waterfalls, certainly off the beaten track, hear you can do some more wild swimming.
Quiraing and Staffin
Next up is the Quiraing, a landscape used in many sci-fi films, and known for its other-wordly rock formations and stunning vistas. This is a place like no other, part of the largest landslip in Europe.
Home to the dinosaurs of Skye’s ancient past,
Kilt Rock will take your breath away with its distinctive pillars and beautiful waterfall with views across to the Torridon Hills on the mainland.
*access to Kilt Rock is closed and we will not be stopping there, this is due to the council creating a brand new, much needed bigger car park.
The Old Man of Storr
The ridge is a mighty inland cliff, rising to a height of 720m. The Old Man is a 200ft stone pillar, which has detached itself from the highest point of the ridge, creating a fantastical landscape of twisted rocks, looming shadows and swirling mists, taking in a stunning cliff top view out to the islands of Rhona, Raasay and the mountains of Assynt.
Eilean Donan Castle
Stronghold of the Clan MacRae and the headquarters of James Bond in “The World is not Enough”.
