Leaving Inverness behind well travel over the Kessock Bridge to the Black Isle and onwards to Achnasheen. Our journey continues through the striking beauty of Glen Carron to reach the highlight of our day together, the Isle of Skye.  
 
The Island of Skye is the largest of the Inner Hebrides and its thought the name could mean "Winged Isle in Gaelic. Our entry to the island is by way of the Skye Bridge and almost immediately well make a photo-stop in the little fishing village of Kyleakin so you can capture the view.  
 
The island has some 400 miles of coastline and the next part of our journey offers wonderful views over the silvery sea lochs to the islands of Scalpay and Raasay. The Cuillin Mountains dominate the skyline. Well stop at Sligachan where there are impressive views of the Red and Black Cuillin Mountains to savour.  
 
The Trotternish Peninsula provides an epic landscape with unique rock formations that were formed by massive landslips that took place 65 million years ago. See the Trotternish Ridge and the Old Man of Storr, a rock pinnacle that rises to 50 metres. 
 
Kilt Rock is our next stop. This impressive sea cliff is formed of basalt columns whose different colours and lines are said to resemble tartan. The view is even more special thanks to the waterfall that cascades over the cliffs into the Sound of Raasay 60 metres below. 
 
Theres a chance to get "up close and personal to the weird and mysterious stone formations of The Quiraing next. They create a unique and awe-inspiring vista thats popular with film-makers and you may recognise them from films such as The BFG, Stardust and Prometheus. 
 
Well make a stop in Faerie Glen to explore the bizarre, yet natural landscape of grassy cone-shaped hills before making our way to Portree, the islands main town. Theres free time to explore this attractive community dont forget to seek out the colourful houses, painted in pastel shades, that surround the harbour.  
 
Back on the mainland well make a photo-stop at Eilean Donan Castle. This is one of Scotlands most iconic sights and a great place for a selfie! As we travel through Glen Shiel look out for the "Five Sisters of Kintail, a group of five mountain peaks four of which are over 914 metres tall.  
 
The last part of our journey will take us along the banks of mysterious Loch Ness. Well make our final photo-stop at Urquhart Castle whose ruins sit overlooking the deepest part of the loch. Its a popular spot with "Nessie-spotters. From here its a short drive back to Inverness and the end of our tour.
