I will be staying 4 nights in Portree in mid-May. I arrive by Citylink bus from Fort William, and I depart by Citylink bus to Inverness.
I've booked an all day tour with realscottishjourneys.com for one of the days. Here's what's included on that tour:
- Fairy Pools (Walk 1hr 15min)
- Fairy Glen (Walk 30min)
- Kilt Rock (Photo stop)
- Old Man of Storr (Photo stop)
- Cuillin Mountains (Photo stop)
- Quiraing (Photo stop)
- Neist Point Lighthouse (Walk 1hr)
That leaves me two free days. The advice I got on this forum was that I should allow that much time for Skye, but now I'm wondering what to see and do without a car.
Any recommendations for other tours to places not covered in the list above, or any activities I can enjoy on my own? I'm open to hiring a driver/guide, but prefer not to rent a car -- as a solo traveler, I find it frustrating to drive, navigate, and try to enjoy the scenery all at the same time. If I were to rent a bike (or eBike), would there by worthwhile excursions I could do?
Note: I originally wrote mid-April. Corrected to indicate it's actually mid-May.
