Real Scottish Journeys - Travel for Curious Minds
One day tours of the Isle of Skye.
The Isle of Skye is magical, wild and beautiful. On our one day tours of Skye you will visit some of the wildest places in Highland Scotland. Each tour is different and taken together they allow you to really discover Skye. We follow winding coastal roads that suddenly criss-cross the island on lonely mountain tracks and then drop back down to the sea. Each tour is the perfect mix of time on the bus and time to explore on your own. There is also plenty of time for lunch a locally owned and run cafes. A chance to relax and chat.
If you want do more than just take some photos and move on, we recommend a minimum of three nights here. So, find a nice place to stay, get your bearings and hopefully come on tour with us. We guarantee a small group tour with a local Scottish guide. Our tours are always flexible and fun. You will discover Scotland’s history, understand the landscape and listen to tall tales that have tumbled down through the years. Imagine dramatic sea cliffs, misty mountains and empty glens. Imagine Skye.
Local Skye Guides
Our guides are local professional Skye guides. We guide, but there is also time to explore on your own, to discover Skye and take your own unique photographs. You will make memories that will last a lifetime.
Taking care of our customers and guides
These are challenging times to travel. Like everyone else we hope that as 2021 progresses things will start improve. For now our tours are suspended until June 2021. When tours recommence we will do everything we can to make touring as safe and enjoyable as possible. We will be guided by the Scottish Government and best practice.
JULY 19 2021 - Covid Update
Covid mitigation is still in place. We recommend that you take a lateral flow test before traveling with us. Masks must be worn at all times. Please comply with all of the current guidance published by the Scottish Government to minimise the spread of Covid 19 and in particular new variants such as the Delta variant. Guides have been double vaccinated and passengers may be temperature checked at start of the tour.
Looking after our Planet
Climate change means that - we all need to change. We are trying and you can help by planning a low carbon visit to Skye. You can start by slowing down a bit, so move about less and stay places a bit longer. Travel is about experience, about the people you meet and the friends you make. When possible use trains instead of planes and buses instead of cars to get around. Search out and ask for sustainable accommodation. Support small independent local businesses. Put simply ...less rush more hush, more time here and less time getting there.
We are rewarding travellers who slow down and also use public transport, we will give you £10 cash back per booking. To qualify, just stay a minimum of three nights on Skye and reach us by public transport. Easy! Of course, if you want to feel really good, you can ask us to donate the tenner to a re-wilding project on Skye and help even more.
Our Island home
Skye is fragile, much of the island is working farmland. Please remember to follow the Scottish Outdoor Access code at all times. We must never leave litter, disturb livestock, disturb wildlife, move/dislodge stones, damage vegetation or pick wild plants. We work with local communities and support rural business when ever possible. We also hope to add some Conservation on Skye tours to our programme for 2021. For now please drop us an email if you are interested.
Trip Advisor Review
“Best day in Scotland - hands down!”
Bill provides an excellent full day tour of Skye. He is a fantastic story teller and genuinely nice guy. He balances this full day out with walking time to explore the sights, so you are not in the minibus all day. But when you are, you are treated to breathtaking sights, and occasional stories that make the place come alive. Also, excellent Scottish music to fill some of the time as well. Truly the best day of a wonderful 11 day trip to Scotland. I can't recommend it highly enough.
