Whenever I mention, my Celtic Invasions in Scotland, someone says, "You need to go to the Isle of Skye". It's supposed to have some of the most-spectacular landscapes in the world. In 2018, we are going. We'll see castles, stunning rock formations, fairy pools, walk in the hills, watch spectacular sunsets and more.
Once again, we're gonna have a small group of about 8 guests in all. We are already half-booked. So check out the early itinerary and let me know if you'd like to join us on this incredible adventure.
Our Next Celtic Invasion Vacation takes place
June 3-10, 2017
Watch My Celtic Travel Vlog to Experience the Magic of a Celtic Invasion Vacation
SEVEN NIGHTS ON ISLE OF SKYE
Friday. The trip doesn't officially start til Saturday, but I recommend that you arrive on Friday like I will. We'll get a good night's sleep in Inverness before driving to Skye on Saturday. If you can't make it on Friday, please arrive by 10am on Saturday. That's when we will plan to leave.
Saturday. We will leave Inverness around 10 am. I hope to have a least one short stop on the way to the Isle of Skye at 10 am. It might just be lunch when we take the Glenelg Ferry onto the island.
Sunday. I hope to book a guided Tour of the Isle of Skye to offer a bit of the culture and history of Skye. That'll take up the morning. In the afternoon, we'll go for a walk up Old Man Storr.
Monday. We'll make a big day of it driving to Dunevegan castle and visit a tannery. We might be out late watching the sunset. Think we'll catch the Northern Lights? I hear it's possible to see them.
Tuesday. After a long day on Monday, we're gonna stay semi-local. We will drive north up the coast to visit Kilt Rock official history tour. Then we will take a Stardust Boat Trip to see the White Tailed Sea Eagle and other water life.
Wednesday. We will head into the the Cuillens for a little walking and visit the fairy pools. You are welcome to go swimming there, I hear. In the afternoon, we will get a tour of the Talisker Distillery.
Thursday. What was the place that looked most interesting that we missed? We're gonna go check it out.
Friday. Though trip isn't over, I want to make sure you make it back to Inverness in time. So this is when we will say goodbye to the Isle of Skye. We will take the southern route back to Inverness, eventually driving along Loch Ness for another chance to catch the Monster. I wouldn't mind another visit to Uroqhart Castle but I'll be looking for other destinations on the drive back. We'll stay the night in or near Inverness.
Saturday. The Celtic Invasion comes to an end. Time to head home!
