Our journey westwards takes us through Glen Shiel, where the Five Sisters of Kintail will come into view – can you tell which of these mountains are over 3,000 feet? To Loch Duich and fairytale Eilean Donan Castle set on its little island. There is time to explore this iconic castle * before we travel over the sea to Skye! There are grand views of the mighty Cuillin Hills on our way to the little village of Elgol. The return journey to Inverness is by way of picturesque Glen Carron and the Black Isle.
