A view of the more secluded side of Loch Ness, a breathtaking cathedral, a living castle and maybe one more free choice.
A different view of the coast East of Inverness, full of fantastic places.
From Inverness we touch Loch Ness on its best side. Then we will go East to Cawdor Castle (part of the year), then East to Elgin Cathedral, the incredible work of art from many centuries ago but still amazing. Today a ruin, it has still amazing features and holds wonderous tales. If you feel daring enough you can climb the two towers to have a breathtaking view of the surroundings.
After that you will be free to choose what to see next according to the whim of the moment.
We can maybe visit a special distillery, or go to Findhorn Foundation, or the village and beach, maybe a stop at the Johnstone Cashmere centre (one of the best in the world), or maybe Culloden Battlefield or a stone circle.
The tour is fully customisable on your interests and tastes and the options can be decided on the moment.
NOTE: For shore excursions the options are more limited due to the distance of the port from Inverness.

Diana was a real pleasure. Of course, she is extremely knowledgeable and well prepared, but we really appreciated her story telling. She made the history and area come alive. Oh, and the tour was adjusted to our interest and energy level as we went on during the day. Five stars and many thanks to Diana.
