We would recommend a visit to the Old Man of Storr and the Quaraing, the waterfall at Kilt Rock and Neist Point Lighthouse.

You will need to either book a tour guide/tour company to take you there or hire/drive a car.  It will take a full day but is worth it for the amazing scenery.  One place you must visit en route to Skye is Eilean Donan Castle.  You may recognise it from several movies it has featured in. It’s an amazing castle, extending out into a beautiful loch. We can help with planning your route, can give you more of our recommendations and will pack you a take-away breakfast so that you can start your trip bright and early!
