Skye Highs Short Break

  • The perfect 4-night escape to explore the magical Isle of Skye
  • Crossing Glenfinnan Viaduct on the Jacobite Steam Train, the ‘Hogwarts Express’
  • Visit the Isle of Raasay and visit its first small-batch whisky distillery
  • Walks to explore Skye’s Cuillin mountains, the rocky Storr and wild beaches
  • Relax with a cup of tea, large slice of cake and maybe a wee dram
This short break itinerary truly packs a punch showcasing the rugged beauty of the Isle of Skye and the famous Jacobite steam train, one of the world's greatest rail journeys. We have selected easy-going walks that take in the rocky Highlands, remote lochs, and wild beaches that Skye is famed for. Combine this with a free day in Portree to take an optional expertly guided day trip from a local taking in all the highlights or a boat trip with a backdrop of the Cuillins, and you have all the right ingredients for a trip of a lifetime.
