Day Tour Packages

Public & Private Tours – All year round

Skye Island Tours is pleased to offer a selection of full & half-day itineraries around Skye, Lochalsh & the West Highlands, where your driver-guide will help you take in as many sights you wish to see, plus allow time for more extended explorations or walks.

Are you looking for a fun and relaxed way to make the most of your time in Skye?

Don’t miss out! Our  day tours from Portree (& area) for independent-minded travellers who wish to cover as much ground as possible during your visit to our magical island.

Our Mercedes Sprinter minibus allows you to sit 6 people at the back and 2 people at the front. It guarantees comfort for small groups and you’ll have the full attention of a local driver-guide to introduce you to some of the nicest spots on our island.

While the public tours have set itineraries, our private bespoke tours give more flexibility to add as many photo-stops as you want, if time permits.
