Start your Scottish Highland experience with a journey to the scenic Black Isle crossing Moray Firth from Inverness. From there, travel to the beautiful estuary of the Cromarty Firth, one of the largest areas of pristine mudflats in UK, and discover the significance of the village for waders and wildfowl.

Travel back to the past in Cromarty, a sleepy fishing village, and explore its old-fashioned fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. Once a major port for the North of Scotland, Cromarty retains its unique character with the help of conservation projects.

Another highlight of your Scottish Highland experience is Moray Firth, traveling through the scenic villages of Rosemarkie and Fortrose separated by Chanonry Point extending into the Moray Firth. As Moray Firth is home to a community of bottlenose dolphins, take delight in dolphin spotting from Chanonry Point, a great vantage point for spotting dolphins.

Continue to the town of Beauly and get a chance to visit Glen Ord Malt Whisky Distillery at Muir of Ord. Learn about the process of making whisky as you tour around the distillery and enjoy a tasting of their end product.

Lastly, visit the village of Drumnadrochit, which lies close to the banks of the fascinating Loch Ness. Discover the mysteries surrounding the mystifying Loch Ness as you learn more about the loch and its famous resident at the Loch Ness Exhibition & Centre.

    Loch Ness

    Your journey starts as you depart Inverness and make your way to the little village of Drumnadrochit which lies close to the banks of the mysterious Loch Ness. Discover more about the loch and its famous resident from your expert driver-guide.

  • Beauly

    Stop by the charming town of Beauly. Deriving from the French, Beau Lieu (beautiful place) was so named by the monks who built a priory here in the 13th Century. Next on to the Muir of Ord where you can have a tour of the Glen Ord Malt Whiskey Distillery and a tasting session.

  • Cromarty

    Next you will visit the sleepy fishing village of Cromarty where you can explore its quaint fishermen's cottages, crow-stepped houses and grand sandstone mansions. This town was the major port of Northern Scotland and its character has been retained to this day, thanks to careful conservation work.

  • Moray Firth

    Travel through spectacular scenery to Rosemarkie and Fortrose. These picturesque villages are separated by Chanonry Point which sticks out into the Moray Firth, acting as a vantage point from which to spot a community of some 130 bottle-nose dolphins that call this area home.
