How do I book train tickets?
Train tickets can easily be booked online on www.scotrail.co.uk . We would strongly recommend purchasing tickets in advance, rather than on the day, as it is usually much cheaper. However, it is only possible to book tickets a maximum of 12 weeks in advance.
Does the tour price include my train ticket?
No, the tour price only includes the guiding and transportation on our Isle of Skye Tour. You must purchase your train tickets separately.
What if the train arrives late into Inverness in the morning?
92% of all Scotrail trains in the Highlands arrive on time and even if the train is up to 30 minutes late you will still make the tour. However, if you are aware that the train is running very late at your departure station it may be a better idea to ditch the train and take a taxi instead.
What if the tour arrives late back into Inverness in the evening?
The tour has been timed to get back in into Inverness for 8.45pm and we drop-off near to the train station so it should be no problem to get your train. If the tour runs late on a Friday or Saturday then there is a later train back that you can catch (train times listed above). Otherwise, you would need to get a taxi.
What if I am running late and miss the train to/from Inverness
Although we will do our best to accommodate the train or tour being late, we will not be able to assist if you are late due to your own mistakes. Please make sure that you get to the train station in plenty time for your departures, to avoid any issues.

If you wish to take our Isle of Skye Day Tour and plan to travel to/from Inverness on the train to/from Dingwall, Connon Bridge, Muir of Ord or Beauly then you please advise us upon booking, in order that we can monitor the train arrival time
