    Take a step back into Medieval times during this visit to Scotland's extraordinary Dunvegan Castle.

    Depart the charming Port of Portree for the drive west across the lovely Isle of Skye to Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan MacLeod chiefs since the 13th century.

    During your tour of Dunvegan Castle, an assortment of priceless heirlooms will be displayed, including some that descended in the hands of the Chiefs of MacLeod since Medieval times. You'll see such treasures as the Dunvegan Cup, mysterious Fairy Flag and Rory Mor's Horn, and explore the lovely gardens that surround the waterfall known as Rorie Mor's Cascade.

    You'll enjoy Scotland's scenic landscapes, including the famous Cuillin Mountains, on the return drive to Portree and your ship.
