Luxury Shore Excursion leaving from Portree port on the Isle of Skye


For many people on a cruise ship holiday shore excursions can be the highlights of their vacation.

All of my shore excursions are of the very highest quality and I will do my utmost to accommodate any special requests you have. As with my other tours, shore excursions can be adapted to include tastings of some of the island's finest cuisine, visits to nearby castles, transport to some incredible walks or climbs, whisky tasting, museum visits and much more. Each tour will give you the benefit of a local guide who knows the island, its history and culture and who is passionate about introducing you to some of the most breathtaking scenery to be found anywhere in the world.

My luxury shore excursions from Portree travel in our Mercedes V-Class. All my Skye shore excursions include complimentary chilled bottled water and the offer of a dram of Skye's famous Talisker single malt whisky.

Itinerary

FLEXIBLE:
I like to be as flexible as possible so am always happy to adjust itinerary and timings to include any 'must-see' locations you have which are not mentioned below - or if you have less time available on Skye.

Portree:
We will either start from or visit Portree, Skye's 'capital city'and a beautiful fishing port village.

The Old Man of Storr, Lealt Falls & Kilt Rock Viewpoints:
I stop for some incredible photo opportunities at these iconic viewpoints.

Quiraing
The Quiraing is, for many people, the most captivating and stunning viewpoint on the island.

Fairy Glen
As you visit the Fairy Glen you will begin to realize why fairy stories abound here.

Dunvegan Castle or Fairy Pools and Talisker Distillery:
For some Highland history the castle is a great option. For those up to the 1 hour or so walk the Fairy Pools (with a visit to the distillery) may be preferred. You can choose on the day (the weather sometimes helps decide!) Please note: Castle closes from mid-October to April.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Cruise Ship Port

Duration: 6 hours

The itinerary and timings can be adapted if you have less time available on the island, so that we can ensure you are returned to the port in good time for your cruise ship's departure.

Transportation

Tours will be in my new Mercedes V-Class, offering a real taste of luxury to allow you to experience the Isle of Skye in ultimate comfort.
