Just crossed over Skye Bridge back to the Mainland
On the last day of the tour we crossed back to Edinburgh, stopping mainly at the Eilean Donan Castle and in Fort Augustus on the Loch Ness.  I really enjoyed touring around the Eilean Donan Castle although there was a large group going round with a guide so it was quite crowded and corridors are very narrow.  However, the organisation was really good and it wasn't long before we moved on. 

Fort Augustus is a really beautiful village and a popular one for tourists to stop by Loch Ness.  In fact we met a lot of other groups there.  We tried to spot Nessie but weren't that lucky :) ... The views on Loch Ness are very impressive!

A few hours after that we were back in Edinburgh.  We stayed in a guesthouse just outside the city centre (about 20 minutes on foot) and we decided to take a taxi as we had our luggage.  It was really worth it as we were a group of 5 persons and we had no hassles to find our guesthouse.  After settling in we went out to find a place to have dinner.  We ended up in an Italian restaurant in Lothian Road, which is owned by really friendly Italians and served delicious food.
