| 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
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.
