Let me take you back in time with a private tour


The tour will start at the historic Culloden Battlefield where the renounced battle took place in 1746. Explore the battlefield and walk in the foot steps of those battle hardy soldiers. There is also a visitors centre, well worth the visit where you will experience a dramatisation in a cinematic room (a great experience). Also at the visitor centre you can obtain an headset to go around the battlefield which will bring the whole experience to life.

From there we will go onto the wonderful Cawdor Castle, which is home to the Dowager Lady Cawdor. The castle is set in a beautiful garden where you might see the the castles resident highland cattle. The castle dates back to the late14th century inside take in the smells and view, see the wonderful interior of the Castle, look out for the hollybush still in situ in the original tower. Please note the castle is only open to visitors during the spring/summer season. When the Castle is closed as an alternative we will visit the site of Fort George.

A Recent Review of this tour

My spouse and I had a lovely day with Richard on the 20th. We found him knowledgeable about the local area, UK customs and basic history, and a wide range of general topics. Most importantly to us, he was extremely accomodating with our specific needs and desires as well as polite, honest, and friendly. He went out of his way to assist us in finding laundry, pharmacy, and banking services. After a week of self-driving and touring, it was a blessed relief to have his help and skills. Thank you Richard!
