Portree/Dunvegan - Scenic Skye (half day)

Depart from the colourful harbour of Portree this morning. Its name, meaning “port of the King” was named after a visit by James V in 1540. Your scenic tour today takes you through some delightful countryside and past some spectacular Scottish Isles scenery.

A turbulent geological history has given the island of Skye some of Britain’s most dramatic and varied scenery – from the rugged volcanic plateau of northern Skye to the ice-sculpted peaks of the Cuillins, Britain’s finest mountain range. The hillsides are scattered with ruins of crofts and sheep and cattle. The islands most famous historical association is with Bonnie Prince Charlie who is said to have claimed “even the Devil shall not follow me here!”. He famously fled here disguised as a maidservant in 1746.

Continue your journey today while your guide will introduce you to the colourful history of these islands. Finally, return to Portree and your waiting ship.
