Day tour to Eilean Donan Castle and Isly of Skye

Hell everyone! Greeting from Dubai. I am going to Scotland for my graduation ceremony and will stay over in Inverness for 2 night.

I am now looking for a Day tour on 12th July 2013 to Eilean Donan Castle and Isly of Skye but unfortunately, i have got rejected by few travel agencies because there is no more availability.

Do you guys have any other suggestions that i can go by public transportation or is that possible to look for a tour when I arrive in Inverness? (I am afraid there will be no more availablity if i walk-in to join the tour but i have dont have anyother soloution)

Me and my parter do not have driving license so we can only get there by public transport or join tour. Thank you and looking forward to some reply :)

Cheers,

Joyce

Hi Joyce, and welcome to the forum. Have a look at this timetable: citylink.co.uk/timetables/…Inve2Skye.pdf The bus passes Eilean Donan near the village of Dornie. There is also a train between Inverness and Kyle of Lochalsh. See www.scotrail.co.uk/timetables-routes/1831

We drove there but you may want to get the train from Inverness and try and stop off at Plockton which is very pretty seaside village and try and get bus through to Klye of Lochalsh

The Bus passes Eilan Donan. The train goes to Kyle of Lochalsh, a few miles away. There is a local taxi company who can take you from one to the other, which would perhaps be more convenient for timing.
