On the second day, stop by Loch Morar and go to the Island of Skye and spend the night in Portree. Relax and enjoy a dram of whisky in the oldest working distillery on the island: Talisker Distillery.

Exceptional guide (Rafael from Mad Goat), and with a lot of knowledge of the places and roads. Possibility to explore Scotland from a different perspective It was really worth it. In addition to the traditional tourist spots, we know a lot about the history of the country, and other very interesting places that a traditional tour would not offer us. I recommend!
