An 8 hour Private Tour from Inverness or Invergordon


We will start off with a visit to a beautiful Castle, Cawdor Castle which is linked to Shakespeare's Macbeth, but home to the magical, fairy tale castle. It dates from the late 14th century, having been built as a private fortress by the Thanes of Cawdor, with the ancient medieval tower built around the legendary holly-tree - wherever you look, Cawdor Castle is steeped in intrigue and history.

A short drive from here will take us to the famous site of the last battle fought on British soil, Culloden Battlefield for visit and lunch. Culloden Battlefield has been restored as close as possible to how it was when the battle took place in April 1746. There is a fantastic state of the art visitors centre, where we have time to take in over 250yrs of history and artefacts since the Battle.

After lunch, a 5-minute drive to the Clava cairns. This is a fascinating historical place dating back to 2000BC. A Clava Cairn is a type of circular chamber tomb cairn from the Bronze Age.
