After a seafood lunch (own expense) in Portree, explore the town and learn about the volcanic activity that formed the region’s rocky features including the Old Man of Storr and the Quiraing.

Thank you for this great review for Gordon. At this time of year the daylight is much shorter but the tour to Skye can still offer lots to see and do before darkness falls. We are really pleased you found the tour worth waiting for. We hope you return soon, perhaps in summer. Slàinte mhath!

Emily was a great tour guide and it was well worth the trip. Make sure you have good shoes and a weather jacket. If you tend to to get car sick prepare for that. There’s a lot of driving.
