Road to the Isles Tours

Dotted with small Scottish towns and with no shortage of scenery, the aptly named “Road to the Isles” is one of Scotland’s most beautiful drives and provides the base for exploring the Small Isles and Skye. Stretching from the base of the UK’s tallest mountain to a port town on the sea, both coastal and mountainous scenery abound. The unspoiled landscapes through the Highlands of Scotland have been the site of many film and television scenes — perhaps most famously in the Harry Potter films.

There are many stops to enjoy along the way, progressing from mountain towns, lochs (or lakes) and glens to isles, inlets, and white sand beaches. Of particular note is Neptune’s Staircase, a series of eight lochs with views of the mountain Ben Nevis, and Glenfinnan, home to the historic monument where Bonnie Prince Charlie once raised his Highland army.

Practical Info

The Road to the Isles is located on the western coast of North Scotland, on the A830 road from Fort William to Mallaig. At roughly 46 miles long, it takes just over an hour to drive with no stops (though you will want to stop.) There is also a Jacobite train journey during the summer months that runs to Mallaig. From there you can catch a ferry to the Isle of Skye.
