Enjoy magnificent lochs, mountains and castles


Leaving the Highland capital behind us, we make our first stop at Culloden Battlefield where the Jacobites made their final stand. We then visit Clava Cairns, burial chambers and standing stones dating from 4000 years ago, made famous in Outlander. After this, we proceed to Loch Ness for some photos and your chance to witness this most illusive of monsters, before taking the stunning drive to Eilean Donan Castle. After visiting here, we drive to Portree, where we shall stay overnight.
Day 2 is a flexible day where you can choose where you wish to visit and spend time. We could concentrate on North Skye, the Trotternish peninsula, making stops at the Lealt Falls, the Kilt Rock and The Quairang. Or perhaps you would rather visit Dunvegan Castle, Talisker Whisky or go walking. In the afternoon, we return to Inverness by way of the north road, making a stop at the Rogie Falls, beautiful waterfalls and forest, before returning to Inverness in the late afternoon.

Itinerary

A fun filled day of adventure where we start by visiting Culloden Battlefield and discover more about the final stand of the Jacobites and the government forces. We then visit the standing stones and burial chambers of Clava cairns followed by a visit to world famous Loch Ness. In the afternoon, we travel to Eilean Donan Castle before making for Portree, our overnight base.
Day 2, a flexible day, we could spend time in the stunning Trotternish peninsula or visit Dunvegan Castle or Talisker whisky distillery. If walking is your thing, we could visit the faery pools or Neist Point lighthouse. In the afternoon, we return to Inverness by way of the North road, stopping at the Rogie Falls on the way, before returning to your hotel in Inverness or other end location by prior arrangement.
