This tour will take you to all the secret fairy townships on the mystical Isle of Skye. Walk with the supernaturals through fairy-sized landscapes and forests, rock castles, and their most famous baths, the Fairy Pools, where you can swim with the fairies. During this tour, you must take the fairy oath. Some highlights you will see include: the Fairy Pools, Talisker Distillery, Neist Point, Dunvegan Castle, and Fairy Bridge. Please wear waterproof clothing and footwear, as we travel to fairy land by going underneath waterfalls. There will be cafes and shops along the way, for you to buy food and drinks during this tour. You may also bring your own packed lunch if preferred. Be advised, some places do not accept cards as payment, so bring cash.

You will start on your journey with a drive to the Fairy Pools in the shadow of the Cuillin Mountains. The pools are located in one of the most dramatic landscapes on Skye. The fairies regularly bathe here, in the crystal clear green pools of the River Brittle. Weather permitting, you can swim in the pools of the river, one of the UK’s best wild swimming spots. Have fun diving under natural arches and waterfalls, but please do not spy on the fairies, they can easily take offense!

From there, you'll travel to the Talisker distillery. Based in Carbost, it is the only whiskey distillery on the Isle of Skye and the whiskey is a single malt Scotch, with a very distinctive Peaty-smokey taste. You may have the opportunity to go through the visitor center (not on the tour), and if available, sample one of the fine whiskeys produced here.

You will then travel to the far west of the island to the dramatic Neist Point. This is the best place on the island to spot whales, dolphins and sharks. Here, you'll transport to the edge of the world with its beautiful scenery, awesome skies and endless ocean. Come and see for yourself why Skye has been voted by National Geographic as the fourth greatest island visitor experience in the whole world!

Dunvegan Castle will  be your next stop. Visit the ancient MacLeod clan castle, set in beautiful gardens, and see the flag for yourself from fairyland which is dated between the 4th and 7th centuries A.D. The entrance fee to Dunvegan Castle is not included.

Then, continue to the Fairy Bridge, which sits between the peninsulas of Waternish and Dunvegan. The bridge is said to mark the place where a fairy wife of a MacLeod chief said her final farewell to her husband and child before she left them to live among her own people. She wrapped the child in a magical fairy shawl, which brings protection to the MacLeod clan. This shawl was preserved and is now the famed Faerie Flag of the MacLeod clan, which can be seen at Dunvegan Castle.

During this tour, you will have a chance to purchase food and drinks at the many cafes and shops. Travelers may also bring their own, packed lunch. Be advised, if you plan on purchasing any food or drink, you should bring cash, as some places do not accept cards.

We will transport you to the far northern peninsula of Skye at Trotternish, where you will have plenty time to explore and take several short walks in an area of fantastical landscapes and stunning coastal vistas.

The Old Man of Storr:
The Old Man of Storr is one of the iconic natural features of the dramatic Trotternish Ridge.

The ridge is a mighty inland cliff, the longest in the UK, rising to a height of 720m. This amazing landscape should be part of any tour to the island and has made Trotternish the most popular visitor destination on Skye. The Old Man is a 200ft stone pillar, which has detached itself from the highest point of the ridge, creating a fantastical landscape of twisted rocks, looming shadows and swirling mists.

The Quiraing:
We take the opportunity to drive right up to the Trotternish ridge at the Quiraing, lying in the far North of Skye. The Quiraing is a landscape used in many sci-fi films, known for its wonderful rock formations and stunning coastal views. This is a place like no other, part of the largest landslip in Europe.
Come to the cliff edge with us and see it for yourself!

Jurassic Skye:
The Trotternish coastline is the most famous on Skye. It dates from the Mid-Jurassic period, formed 175 million years ago and is the dinosaur stamping ground of Scotland. The beaches are rich in fossils, the rocks are ancient and twisted. The whole coastline has been designated as an outdoor museum. Interpretation panels bring the area to life, explaining the unique geology of this land. As part of the tour we will visit two indoor museums (Depending on opening hours). The Dino museum has an internationally important collection of dinosaur fossils: here you can see their footprints embedded in stone, taken from the local beaches. At the Highland Life Museum you will see a whole village of traditional black houses, complete with thatched roofs and can learn about the old ways of the native peoples. Enjoy some of the best shopping on the island in the museum shop filled with quality local products.

Fairy Glen:
This is the most important meeting place of the fairies on Skye. Wander between countless conical mounds, known in the Highlands as fairy knowes; put your ears to the grass and listen for the fairies at work inside. Bend down to search for elves in the glen's miniature forests, take the twisted path to the top of the fairy castle or walk the faun’s maze and have a wish granted!
