Day 12 - A day of natural beauty

  • Quiraing Scotland (map)

This morning we will take a scenic drive right around the Trotternish Peninsula, north of the hotel and home to Rubha Hùinis, the northernmost point in Skye. Stop to see some of the island’s most famous landmarks - Kilt Rock, The Old Man of Storr, the Quiraing landslip and Flora MacDonald’s grave at Kilmuir.

After our morning of air and light and wild cliffs and seabirds and lunch at our hotel, we will drive via the hauntingly beautiful Cuillin mountain range to the famous Talisker Distillery, for a distillery tour and whisky tasting and a stroll along the lovely bay. Talisker is the oldest working distillery on Skye and produces an award-winning range of single malts with a distinctive, smoky-sweet flavor and more than a hint of peat.

We’ll be back in Portree in good time for a stroll around the harbor, a look at the shops for those who wish, and a free evening to dine in town.
