Portree/Dunvegan - The Cuillins & Dunvegan Castle
(half day)

The Isle of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and is blessed with some glorious rugged and dramatic scenery, much of which you will see today. The Isle itself stretches just 50 miles from end to end and whilst on the Isle of Skye you will never be more than 5 miles from the sea. Historically the Isle is associated with Bonnie Prince Charlie who came here in the 18th Century disguised as the maidservant of a woman from Uist, Flora MacDonald.

Disembark your ship this morning and drive through Portree, the principal ‘metropolis’ of this Isle, it still retains a lovely village feel. See some of the quaint houses and shops before driving out on the main Dunvegan road and onwards then to the tiny hamlet of Skeabost where St. Columba’s ruins and a medieval burial site can be seen. Enjoy the varied landscape including the famous Cuillin mountains as you continue to Dunvegan Castle, the seat of the Clan MacLeod chiefs since the 11th Century. Tour the Castle and the delightful Castle gardens with your local guide before returning to Portree and your awaiting ship.
