Skye Highs Short Break

Skye Highs Short Break

Escape to the Isle of Skye on the perfect 4-night short break, including a magical steam train ride on the ’Hogwarts Express’, an expertly guided day trip taking in Skye’s mountains, rocky peninsulas, remote lochs and wild beaches, topped off with some great walking.

Starting with one of the world’s greatest rail journeys, take the Jacobite steam train from Fort William to the west coast station of Mallaig where you’ll overnight. Then take a ferry across to Skye where you’ll stay 3 nights in pretty Portree.
