Skye is magical, wild and beautiful. Our Skye tour departs from Portree daily. We take you to some of the wildest places in Scotland, following coastal roads and criss cross the island on mountain tracks. You travel in a small group with a local Scottish guide to discover Scotland’s bloody history and hear stories that have tumbled down the years. You see wild sea cliffs, mountains, lonely glens, lochs and fairy castles. On our one day tour of Skye you see the very best places that are on everyones Skye bucket list, but we never rush, there is plenty of time to walk, talk and explore the Isle of Skye.
SkyeBus is a brand new 16 seat air-conditioned mini-coach.

Fairy Pools, Fairy Glen, Kilt Rock, Old Man of Storr, Cuillin Mountains, Quiraing and Neist Point Lighthouse or Dunvegan Castle
A full day of touring the Isle of Skye. If you only have one day on Skye this is the tour to choose. Skye Bus tours are packed with stories and legends that bring history to life. There is no need to rush, we take our time, with plenty of stops and walks all day long. It is a nice mix of time on the bus, short photo stops and longer walks. You will have time to explore on your own or with your new friends on the tour. We break around mid-day for lunch. We stop close to cafes and shops where you can buy lunch. Please bring cash, as some places do not accept cards.
What to expect:
There is some trail walking on this tour. You can sit out some of the walks or not walk so far. Dress for changable weather. Please bring suitable footwear for rough and sometimes muddy ground.
