Your Edinburgh to Isle of Skye itinerary

Starting your journey from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye, your itinerary will be filled with some of Scotland’s finest sights. Our expert tour guide’s suggestion for the first leg of the journey is to spend a while in the ancient town of Stirling, where there are many great attractions to admire.

From Stirling Castle, known as the ‘key to the kingdom of Scotland’, to the town’s famous landmark the National Wallace Monument, there is much to take in and plenty to photograph.

Continuing north on your journey to the Isle of Skye from Edinburgh, you’ll pass through the spectacular Glencoe. We strongly recommend you plan ample time to enjoy this wonderful Scottish Highlands village, so that you can take in the mountain air and venture along the well-marked hiking paths.

Travelling onward through the Scottish Highlands, your journey will naturally lead you to the world famous Loch Ness. Whether you stop off for a spot of monster hunting, take a boat trip out onto the enchanting freshwater loch, or visit the remains of the 13th century Urquhart Castle, you’re sure to leave with lasting memories.

The Isle of Skye is a truly amazing island, a real must-see destination for anyone visiting our beautiful country of Scotland.

And the journey through the stunning Scottish Highlands on your way to the island really is one to be treasured.

We believe that your personal journey from Edinburgh to the Isle of Skye deserves more than just two days.

For this reason, our expert tour guides here at Heartland Travel recommend either a three-day or four-day Edinburgh to Isle of Skye tour.
