A day full of the best of the Highlands.

Live Scotland as a Highlander: from hunting the famous Loch Ness monster on a boat with sonar monitors to the famous Castle on the Loch.

Stone circles, battlefields and breathtaking sceneries in the very heart of the Highlands.

If the time consents, a stop in the delightful village of Beauly and its ruined Priory where you can still imagine to hear the monks toning their prayers.

After that we will taste the Scottish Water of Life at a local distillery.

From a new panoramic route we will then return to Inverness.

Approximately 8 hours and 88 miles.


1- Invergordon or Inverness starting point
2- Culloden Battlefield
3- Clava Cairns stone circle or other cairn and stone circle

A Recent Review of this tour

Diana is hands down the best tour guide ever! She met our family at the train station early in the morning, and was kind enough to help transport our luggage as we toured Inverness with her throughout the day. She had a great itinerary planned for our family of four (with two teenaged girls) and was flexible to accommodate any last minute hiccups. Her knowledge and enthusiasm also made the visit all the more personal. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a rewarding visit to Inverness.
