Some of those places to discover could be the Trotternish ridge with spectacular cliffs and rock formations, Kilt Rock along with the stunning mountain pass of the Quiraing or maybe the Old Man of Storr.

Perhaps you would like to visit the western isle’s most westerly point at Neist Point, with its sublime sea views and the chance to spot whales, dolphins, porpoises and basking sharks or maybe you’d like the history of 13th-century home of the Clan Macleod, Dunvegan Castle.

Whatever you decide, you’ll spend a pleasant evening back at your base in Portree.
