Dornoch, Dunrobin Castle and the Glenmorangie Distillery


We travel north to the historic town of Dornoch visiting the cathedral and the Jail.

We continue north spotting some seals en-route if we are lucky to Dunrobin Castle at Golspie in time for the falconry display in the grounds. We then visit the magnificent castle itself which is reminiscent of a French château.

From Dunrobin we continue to a whisky tasting at the famous Glenmorangie Distillery which stands near the shores of the Dornoch Firth at Tain.

After leaving the distillery we conclude the tour by taking a scenic drive over the mountains to "Millionaires' View" for a spectacular view of the Dornoch Firth, returning to your cruise ship at Invergordon via flower-filled Alness.

This tour takes around six hours and it can be amended to fit your requirements.

Itinerary

We'll leave Invergordon at 09:00am and travel to Dornoch, taking time to visit the cathedral and jail for shopping on to Loch Fleet hopefully see some seals, then arrive at Dunrobin Castle in time to see the falconry display and visit the castle. We then visit Glenmorangie distillery for a tasting returning to the ship via "millionaires view" for great mountain views, arriving back at the ship approximately 15:00
