Historic battlesites, a ruined castle, a 4,000 year old burial ground, beautiful countryside and whisky! This private customisable tour has it all!
First is Culloden Battlefield, the site of the last pitched battle on mainland Britain in 1746. Wander the historic site towards the memorial cairn and see markers of where the doomed clans lined up to fight against the Government forces.
Next is Clava Cairns said to be one of the sites that inspired the Outlander books. It’s a Bronze Age cemetery complex of passage graves, cairns, and standing stones.
Passing Clava Viaduct we’ll reach Cawdor Castle (Macbeth anyone?) to explore the castle and the beautiful grounds.
After driving down Loch Ness to Urquhart Castle ruins, you can use the remaining ramparts to scour Loch Ness for monsters! Then its Beauly to a 13th century priory and to wander around this pretty Highland town.
Finally, we’ll head north and its whisky time! We’ll visit a distillery to sample some of the water of life!
* The standard vehicle for our tours is a Volvo XC90 SUV which has six passenger seats. For comfort we recommend up to four passengers however if you have a larger group, two small adults or children could use the rearmost seats.
